A Heck of A Ride!!

I must show you. This is wonderful and the man must be a peach. 100 years young. The lady you see in the picture is 100 years young. Her birthday wish was to take a motorcycle ride.





I got this picture from our local paper's website. Isn't this something? The article stated she took a ride last year and wanted another one for her birthday. I heard the nice man who provided the ride also provided her with a leather jacket too. Happy Birthday Naomi (10-08-08).

Our paper regularly helps people celebrate their 100th birthdays and always asks what it takes to live to be 100. This lovely lady said, "Be honest, be kind to each other and live right". Well said...

On a side note, last year another lady celebrated her 100th and when she was asked that same question. She replied something to the effect of "I've never been married, I've never had a boyfriend, I've always seen them as a problem". Something along those lines anyway. hmmmmmm....

I just realized I made my 100th post. Remember last night? I told you I was in a fog. I do have a little giveaway planned. Once I get my head out of the fog, I'll post pictures of the goodies. I never thought I'd stay this dedicated to anything on the computer when I started this in March. It's been a great trip and I've talked to people in places I'd never dream of. Thank you all for making it so darn interesting!!!

How cute is that! I hope I'm able to ride a motorcycle when I'm a 100. Heck, I hope I'm healthy enough to ride anything when I'm a 100.

Is the fog lifting?

Hugs!
