Valentine's Day

Cliff loaded the Gold Wing on the trailer he's been working on, to see if it was going to do the job.  He's going to make a few adjustments, but it looks like it will work.  He'll paint it, of course, when he gets it right.

By 1 PM it was 60 degrees, and I talked Cliff into skipping work so we could ride the motorcycle.  I'd been wanting to go to Olive Garden anyhow.  I told him we'd beat the Valentine's Day rush, but when we arrived at 2 o'clock, there was a fifteen minute wait for a table.

Because it was such a nice day, I locked Sadie in Mandy's old pen outside; when we got home, Buddy was curled up against the pen, as close to Sadie as he could get; he misses Mandy so much.  I'd love to get a picture of him laying by Sadie like that, but he always gets up when he sees us getting home.

My daughter's family is down with the flu.  I'm sure glad we got our shots, and I hope this is a strain for which the shot is effective.

I hope everyone had as good a Valentine's Day as I did.

I am so glad you had a good Valentine's Day, Girlfriend.  You deserve one. It's been a rough patch.  Hope you didn't eat all those wonderful rolls they bring you at the OG.  ;)

Nice work Cliff!  I'm going to suggest to my hubby a trailer such as that!  Right now we use a closed utility/box trailer.  Kind of big and unweildy.  The plus side is I don't drive with the trailer in tow, so maybe we should just keep it ...

Glad you had a great Valentine's Day. The trailer is looking very nice. Looks as if you and Cliff are getting ready for Spring to come as much As Ken and I are. I do believe Buddy has fallen in Love with Sadie. A picture of him lyling close to her would be nice to see. Helen
