Parsla, Steve, and Gidjet stopped by for a visit recently. I hadn't seen Gidjet for a long time, so it was very nice to visit with old friends.

As Steve has almost completed sale of the Jackson house, Gidjet is moving to Oakland County. Although she will likely miss the empty country roads, I'm sure she will enjoy being closer to Parsla, Steve, and the dogs.

As it happens, I just got a new camera and I realized that I didn't have many pictures of Gidjet, so I took advantage of the opportunity to snap a few pics.

Although she is showing her age a little, she has less gray hair and wrinkles than I do and I still find her trim and attractive.

While she was here, Steve took advantage of the hoist to do a little work on Gidjet. The best thing was the sound of the engine as Steve checked out his work. The sound of Gidjet going up through the gears was only surpassed by the sound of her downshift coming back.

Why is it that most modern cars do so little to move me, but Gidjet can still push all my buttons?

It's been a Busy Summer

To those of you that follow this, sorry for not posting for so long. This summer has been busy with working on my father's house. And lot's of other excuses. Anyway, I did get away for a few days of motorcycle riding with the MSTA. This video is nothing special, but it does show a nice winding road from the helmet cam. One of these days, I'll figure out how to mount the camera to the bike so the lean angles will show, but for now, enjoy.
