Good morning from the wonderful state of Wisconsin. We are experiencing yet another absolutely glorious day. The weather has been absolutely beautiful - sunny, warm but not hot, blue skies, simply picturesque leaves. Stunning. The kind of weather that just puts a smile on your face all day long and makes you grateful to be able to experience it.
With this wonderful weather, Jim and I started to feel the urge to drop everything and take a motorcycle ride. Unfortunately, we sold our motorcycle this past winter. So, how do we assuage that need to feel the breeze on our faces? Why, head to the local Harley-Davidson store of course! We are eyeballing our next bike and are crunching some numbers to see if it will fit into our budget. It may seem counterintuitive to get a motorcycle before winter sets in, but that's just how we roll. Besides, knowing Jim, he'll have a laundry list of customizations he'll want to do before the riding season starts again. So we shall see what happens with our number-crunching and negotiations with the dealership.
Remember my picture of deer in our backyard? Well, the deer now have playmates in the form of woodchucks and our very own fox. We also have our share of hummingbirds, blue jays, warblers, chickadees, finches, and so many other birds, chipmunks, squirrels, and rabbits. Who knew that we would be moving among our very own menagerie? The dogs have been having a blast running and chasing everything away. I have to admit that I still get a thrill peeking out the window every morning and seeing what wildlife has decided to stop by for a visit. The fox is really cool.

I will not comment on Monday night's football game against the Seahawks. It still makes me angry. Let's hope they can put it all behind them and kick some Saints tail today. With that, time to go enjoy this gorgeous day while I can. I hope everyone has a wonderful Sunday. Happy reading!
