Happy Valentine's Day to my Sweetie !!

I wanted to get my Sweetheart a Valentine she would enjoy, something sweet but that wouldn't make her fat. :-) So I have been looking hard for the last week to find the right gift.  Finally I found it and yesterday we went and brought it home.
Her very own Polaris Sportsman 500 4-wheeler....what a beauty and she loves it!  She said "Wow, it's even red like a valentine heart". This baby is like Brand New, just barely broke in...
We no more than got it unloaded and she was on it and ready to go for a ride.

Soon we were all set to head out to those "Wide Open Spaces" that we love so much right here in our back door.

We gave our friends Larry and Geri Gustafson, owners of  The Broken Arrow Campground in Custer, SD, a call and asked them if they would like to go out for a ride. They are staying right down the road from us, so we picked them up and headed out.



Soon we were tearing around, uphill, downhill, around curves in the dirt, rocks and sand of this great wide-open, wonderful area. Here we are "resting" for a few minutes. Ms Pat loves her new ride so much she won't even get off for a second.

I was hoping she would get off for just a minute, cause I wanted to try out that new one and let her ride the old one. NO WAY, she said "You ride yours and I ride mine"!! Oh, OK...(I guess) Fortunately, I rode it before I bought it, but I'm afraid that may be my last time!

OK, here we are ready to go again. You can see that smirk on Ms Pats face as she says " Nope, you ride yours and I'll ride mine"!  What's a guy to do??  OH WELL, what the heck, I'm having fun, out here where I love it.  Lets go.....I like mine BETTER anyhow...(I think)
Here we all are lined up in Martinez Creek, one of our favorite sandy dry river beds that runs for miles and miles right behind our house. In that deep sand, these machines just glide along and you can run wide open, or as fast as you want to. Larry and I had a race between his new Honda and my old Polaris.  I won't say who won.  Don't want to hurt anyone's feelings here, especially MINE!

As you can see above, Ms Pat still will not budge off her beautiful new machine.  Gee,, if she would get off that thing I would give it a whirl.  I don't believe that's gonna happen.  But, when she's happy, I'm HAPPY.

The weather has been just gorgeous here lately and more of the same is forecast. This morning we are off to early Church at 8am...then this afternoon we are going to the Gold Rush Days and "Seniors" Rodeo with Larry and Geri. That will be a blast. We have gone many times before and always enjoy it. All contestants in the Rodeo must be over 50 years of age. Ms Pat always wants me to get in the Bronc Riding.....since I used to do that for a living.  Ya,,,right,,,,!!! I'm a LOT over 50....Way Over!... and smart enough to know as the song says,  "I ain't as good as I once was".....in fact, I'm not even as good ONCE as I once was!!!  Nowaday's there is a lot of things I can just talk about and recall some mighty fond memories. I admit...I'm a "has been"!! I'm now content to just sit back and watch. But ya can't help but think back on the "Good Ole Days"!! I thank God I had all those days. We have so much to be thankful for...

God Bless you all.....Thanks for stopping by and please come back again.  Remember your comments below are appreciated.

HAPPY VALENTINES DAY EVERYONE!!!  Be sure to tell that special someone how much you love them!!!  They may not be around forever.

It was a GREAT WEEK!!

Mike

Wow! And i didn't even get Suzy a card! Actaully, last Sunday I bought her a Valentine flower a week ahead of time -- a bromeliad with a towering red flowering stalk. Maybe I should write about it in a blog. You are a hopeless romantic, Mike, a 4-wheeler for your Valentine. Looks like fun!

Super Valentine's gift, Mike! Looks like you're both going to really enjoy all that time racing around the desert together. It's a great looking unit, no wonder Pat won't let you ride it!
