    Our newest edition to the family and the reason for the recent trip to Nellis AFB in Las Vegas.




    A few hours from Nellis just outside of China Lake Naval Base in Ridgecrest, CA are four more of our grandkids.

    I'm so glad they hopped up on the bike. She stepped on the rear brake and I noticed the pedal did not return, but stayed down. That's not good, I thought. Turns out the pedal has been sticking for who knows how long. Maybe the recent ride through bad weather was to blame. Easy fix, just disassemble and lube the pivot point. I may not have noticed and ruined the rotor on the way home.

    Please Don't Eat the Daisies...

    I was reminded of this title of a book and movie from the 60's when I realized that the crazy one was scarfin daisies while we relaxed out in the fields during a ride out on the windmill roads. We borrowed my punk kids atv (side by side?). I immediately googled it and found out they are edible. He ate quite a few.





    Doesn't really take much to make them happy. Just a field full of flowers. There was a hidden pricker bush that caused some consternation but they got over it after I untangled them. Always somethin...

    Long walk the other day. I did have to carry the little, crazy one a bit cuz the grass is higher than him.

    There was a lot of berry picking. Everyone had a level to pick from.





    Here's a perfectly normal picture of a semi-cute kid right?




    But zoom in and it starts to look like some children of the corn stuff....

    I am raising two granddaughters, one 10 one 16. The 16 year old is asking to ride my 82 1100E, after that I keep the keys in one of my safes unless I am riding. That is a tough bike to learn on. I told her I was going to start her off on the old Honda CL100. They grow fast and there is never a dull moment.
