Another Check on the Bucket List

 I'm in the Bay Area
preparing for 
Pacific International Quilt Festival
San Jose is my home town
and I came in a few days early 
to spend some time with family.
While I have been home 
I placed a check mark 
on my 
Bucket List
My brother-in Law
recently purchased a 
Harley- Davidson motorcycle
and offered me a ride.
 I've never been on a Harley before :)
It was quite fun to stroll around the 
scenic tree lined streets of Pleasanton, California.
And then we hit the freeway....
Zoooommmmm!
I think if I ever get back on a Harley,
I'll request we stick to the tree lined streets.
Oh my.
 Those things can go from
0 to 70 miles an hour in just a few seconds.
 When we got back from our ride,
my brother (who is an amazing cook)
had prepared a fabulous meal
of Caribbean food.
Jerk Chicken
Coconut Rice and Beans
Caribbean Slaw.
Yum:)
I'll keep you posted on 
the events from the 
Convention that starts on Wednesday.

looks like fun! I have ridden on motorcycles in my youth but haven't done so in years -- I think almost all of my brothers had a motorcycle at one time or another - I think they inherited that love from my father who had a Harley back in the late 1940's to early 1950's - he loved them.

When I was much, much younger, I rode a lot!! Don't think I'd enjoy it as much now. They are so loud!! That meal looks yummy. Have lots of fun at the quilt festival.
