The scoop this week?
My friends at work surprised me with a cake for my birthday - wow! Another friend brought me chocolate from Rocky Mountain candies when she was in Colorado.

Doug is featured in a book!
My man is published…no, not a writer….an inked man gracing the pages titled The Hall of Fame in artist Anne Stokes’ upcoming book, Stoked: The Art of Anne Stokes Tattooed. Check it out HERE
Doug and his Woodland Guardian tattoo are highlighted in Anne Stokes soon to be released book. The artist, Litos Pinto owner of Forbidden Images is also in the book. If you are so inclined to have a very nice, well done tat…make the trip to New Port Richey because Litos is the man when it comes to professional ink work.
For the stages of this ink being done (three separate trips) check it out HERE
This past weekend we rode 285 miles in the quest for lunch. The tantalizing aroma of backyard BBQ wafted over us and through the helmets – had to have BBQ! So, in Eufaula Alabama we noticed a sign claiming Best Butts in Alabama ! We did a U-turn and landed at Phil’s BBQ: Best Butts in Alabama
So true. It was the most tender sliced pork I have ever eaten. Ever. We will make that ride again just for a plate of that BBQ pork. It was a good ride too. We started out at 9:30 a.m. and stopped for lunch at 1:00. Got home at 4:00 p.m. Going over the bridge from Georgia to Alabama was one of the prettiest sights I’ve seen. The bridge spans Walter George Lake ….deep blue waters with nary a ripple but for the occasional boat drifting lazily past, fishing rods hanging off the side.
What a week! And we are ending it off a great patio birthday bash of steamed shrimp, margaritas, black beans and rice, chips and queso.
Life is good!
