This Cat


Has been married to this Cat


for 30yrs!!

Our town had bets going on when we first Married (true!)...
They all lost ..We won big time !!!
To this day The Justice of the Peace that Married us ..She has only one couple that are still Married ... US !!!!



My gosh we have had so many great memorable adventures together.. And they are still coming !! I wonder what the next 30 yrs will bring ...
We have lived in a tent for a year.. And a horse trailer for another year..
And a 14' travle trailer 6 months with 3 cats...
Have always had the same likes...
Moto's ,Guns,Camping,fishing,cats,horses,cattle. And adventures and the love of travle.......

And it only feels like 5 yrs.... We are together 24/7/365... We have always worked together...So we are very seldom apart.. We have been together for 31 yrs...



I had all kinds of big plans for us today... Until HB comes back in from feeding.. So much for best laid plans...

But first we have to move the horse herd out of the neighbors field
I just have to grab the lead Mare.. Ah life on the farm....

The other half of the day ...After rope burns and being dragged a few times as 1 horse didn't make it through the gate.. And she didn't want to leave the the new friends..Our neighbor has 4 horses.. So a 10 min job turned out in to an hour and a half..

After resting for a while we started the OUR time ...
HB did really good He found me some very nice Jewelry Bracelet,Necklace,and a black Onyx pendent.. That he thought I could turn in to a choker or necklace...

I didn't get a chance to get flowers.. But I did pick our last 2 Yellow Roses..
And our Christmas Cactus is in Full Bloom..

I picked HB up a Drill Dr.750X to sharpen Drill bits.. he has so many dull bits
at least 4 indexes that are full ... And many many other loose ones ..
Plus satin sheets,and some new lounge pants.

Oh did I mention the wild .. What happens in the Farm house stays in the farm house ...

Oops sorry no pix of our Supper this year... Was charging the batteries

... It's totally amazing that with all the time we have been together we are both still alive !!! When I say 24 / 7 / 365 for 31 years I'm NOT JOKING !!
If you total all the times that we have NOT been together it might total up to 1 year.....

WE are really more then just a married couple... WE are more then just best friends..WE are that match that was made in heaven...
Who was it Plato who talked about Split Aparts... That truly what we are... We can be couped up on the farm for weeks .. And still want to talk to each other

Congrats on the steadfast marriage! My wife and I have been together for 29 yrs. but only married for 11. We have a 9 yr. old boy.

You were the inspiration for my 1000 miles in 24 hrs. last March. It was great fun. Thanks for that. There is a link to my story below.
Cheers,

The WV HillBillyRun June 2011

Each June Highbinder & Smokin'Joe sets up a big ride ..
For our Valkyrie club...
This year we took 65 Valkyries to West Virginia .. We were going to stay @ Marlinton buy TheBYOB beat us to the dates...
So we stayed in Franklin @ The Thompson's Motel and booked every bed in Franklin and the surrounding area...

Friday morning we planned to meet up with a few riders
As we wait for a few more riders to meet up with us @ Richcreek..



It was a good time to kick tires and have some coffee..

The bikes wait...Ready to head down the road...





Ah the last rider shows up refuels..



MtnHawk is ready to go...



It might be a VRCC ride .. But ADV was there in stickers ..CH &BWDR



We get to Union and it's dinner time ... Lets check out the local cafe..



Medic and Dubsvalk in deep conversion...



MtnHawk talks to Fendermenders buddies...



We took everyone the longway around to Franklin...
It was getting so hot ,that it was time to rehydrate and it would be the last stop..




When we made it to the Motel it was already packed ..Valks every where..



Highbinder showing off his new pants... Long story short .. He sat down and ripped his old ones... And I only packed the 1 pair ..
Thank goodness when we lived in the area I remembered a little flower shop that also had jeans..
We had made it there 10min before they closed..


We had this big ole TomCat visit us...



Our good friend from TX showed up HotGlue & Flamingobabe..



The guy rode all the way from Ohio on this tire !! He spent all Sat finding a tire.. And missed the ride...




Saturday Morning.........

Smokin'Joe checking out the staging area...



HG & FB getting ready...And all the others...



We'll start the group toward Smokehole...



Dragon herding at it's best



We pass Sites Farm..



That's my buddy Lucky13 his mate MeanStreak...

....

Just as we make the turn on to Smokehole road we hear over the CB that the Spyder has gone into Limp mode
That can't be good.. So FB & HG turn around and head back to the motel...

The cool rocks on Smokehole road...



At this point we keep going to the end of the road and stop...
I tel Highbinder that I'll turn around and head back to see if I can help HG & FB with the bike.. Plus I know the whole route and when we get things fixed we will meet up with the group.. As I get ready to leave FenderMender says I'll go to.. And help as well...Cool.....

Well what happened was a screw fell out and hit the ABS teeth chewed up about 9 !!
FenderMender said if we can just tap the teeth straight maybe the sensor can read it .. I had a punch and a hammer .. FenderMender fixed it !! FB rode the Spyder around the lot and it came out of Limp mode!! And we are off to meet the group... It was so nice that it all worked out..
So I point us and headed to RedLick ...



We met up with them on Rt 28 and the rains hit hard... LOL Highbinder had my raingear !!!I was soaked !!!

But the sun came back out and I dried off...

We had Dinner server by the 4H kids .. They did a heck of a job ...



We ate on top of Droop mountain...

Staging again to head out...



The fuel stop outside of Marlinton..



Then took the group down to rt 600.. A stop and regroup...



We took all our old favorite roads we use to ride..



The bikes spread out a few times..



Now back into BlueGrass Valley.. We lived there for 20+ years...





Heading back to Franklin...



It was a great ride ... And we really enjoyed being able to show the club our old stomping grounds..
They all want to revisit it for 2012 ... We will see ... Highbinder and Smokin'Joe like to change it each year...

Oh there are more photos... I'll get that part up soon....

In Memory of the Late Andy Rooney ..
And now the rest of the Story....

Being that we had to change to route a few times on Sat ,due to the heavy rains we had to cut out 2 of the stops , (GreenBank & BearTown)..
So on the way home we took our friends to them.. It was a beautiful day..

We stated with running US33.. And the classic view German Valley..



Then it was off to GreenBank...We did play inside for a little..



Then it was time to head towards Cass...



WE pulled in just in time to see the train pull out ...



Run more Mountain twisties...





We stared to head towards Bear Town State Park .. I love this place have been there at least 8 times...



All the Boardwalks in BearTown are very cool...



Everyone sure was digging it..



The rock formations are just a site to behold..



FenderMender holding the rocks back so we can all walk..



HG & FB are from TX .. They are really digging the Boardwalk through BearTown..



Just look at that tree,and where it is growing ...



Highbinder & I just love BearTown...



Time for a group shot...



They have really done a very nice thing..



Everyone taking pic...



One more Groupshot in Grayscale...



There are many cool passage ways through BearTown..
If you have never been .. A stop at BearTown State Park is a must..



After BearTown we headed home via the longway ...
HotGlue & FlamingoBabe are staying with us for a week... Then we are off to Maggy Valley for a Spyder Lovers Event....

So stay tuned for that Write up...
Yee Haw I love this fast MiFi hook up

Oh here is a link to more photos from The WV HillBilly Runand the Sunday ride home...

How about a little farm life... From the summer....

As I waited for the fog to life off the mountain ..I see our cattle are heading up the driveway....



Ya'll remember when this years Calves were born.. Here is a photo are some photos from Summer...



They are sure growing ..



This will also be the first time that our calves will NOT have horns !!
They are naturally Polled ...



They got this from their Sire..
Remember their sire(daddy) was a Charolais Bull...

Just like two legged kids .. Ya try to take a pic and someone sticks a finger in their nose.. In this case it's a tongue



Lefty and her baby.. Do ya remember how she still had to unfold as a newborn..Just look how pretty she is now..




Last two baby shots..

Latte will make a nice cow one day..



And so will Mocha...



I'm so glad that we had heifers born.. They don't have to leave the farm...

Til next time...
