Is it Friday yet?

I can't believe I'm saying that on Tuesday this week! I need a vacation. Really bad. I mean seriously, really bad. See? I can't even speak correctly anymore.

I thought about just taking a week and being a bum. Unfortunately, I want school to be over before I do that so I can really enjoy myself and not have to do anything. And so that when the vacation is over I know I don't have to get back to this craziness of working and going to school. *Sigh* Can I make it until the end of next month? Hmmmm....

We had a great time at the Paw-ker Run for the animal shelter Saturday. We had 25 bikes and they played 30 hands, so I thought it was a pretty good turnout for the first time we put on the event. They all promised to come back next year and bring lots of friends. I think we are going to push it back to the last weekend in April next year though because we were competing with a lot of other things. Otherwise, I think we would have had a better turnout.
The Hell's Angels group from the beach was supposed to come, but they had one of their guys get killed during a Run in Virginia so they had other things to deal with. I felt bad for them and they were worried about not participating for us. That would have been a nice addition, but we understood.
The guys even had to push start one after the run. I guess the bike decided it had done enough that day.
There were some really nice bikes there, and the guys suggested we have a bike show next year, too. I'll have to remember to write that in my notes. They spend a lot of money on those bikes, so I'm happy to do anything that will get them to participate and let them show off a bit.

I was REALLY excited that the winner of the event ended up giving us half of the pot back as a donation. Yay! I can't believe I didn't take a picture of him, but here's his bike.
I love the sounds the Harleys make. They just sound so damn cool! Okay, that sounded like a pretty nerdy statement, huh? Oh well... I'm sure everyone in our small town was wondering where the hell all of the bikes were coming from. Get used to it, folks! This will be a yearly thing, especially because these guys have proven how generous they can be. Gotta love 'em. We made some decent money to help save some puppies and kittens.

Now it's on to the planning of the event I'm in charge of in September. We are planning to do a big thing down at the river. We are going to have our President demonstrate with his dogs in the water retrieving and have booths set up for lots of fun stuff. I'm thinking of doing a dog walk event where people get sponsors to donate for those who are walking. Of course, we'll have animals out there for adoption, too. I just have to figure out who all to contact that will be generous. Any ideas you all have from events you've attended would be greatly appreciated. September will be here before I know it. Ugh!

I ask you again... Is it Friday yet???

I hear ya! I need a vacation soon or I'm going to go insane!!! Hang in there! Friday can't get here soon enough! :)

Oilfield Trash said...

I know exactly how you feel. I can't take any vacation time until October and I am pissed about it.

Laynee said...

Vacation?? What's that??? I haven't had one of those in forever. Bikers are really good people. That was awesome the winner gave half the pot back as a donation. Makes me wish I coulda been there.

Krissy said...

Yvonne.. Amen to that! I swear, I just want a few days to do nothing, but I probably won't get that this weekend either.

OT.. That sucks! I think I'm taking some at the end of June.

Laynee.. I wouldn't know what a vacation is either, but I've heard the term floating around so it must be good. Wish you could have been at the fundraiser, too! The bikers were great.

I so remember that feeling when I was working. It will be here before you know it. Sounds like the fund raiser will be much bigger next year. Good for you on the success of this one.

lyndylou said...

sounds like a great day! Love the bikes. As for a holiday, god I so know what you mean!

becca said...

woohoo let's all take a vacation now

The Adorkable Ditz said...

That's awesome about those lovely riders! But I do think that Goldwings sound better than a Harley. :P

Just my opinion.

How about a doggie obstacle course?

I like Harley riders in general, but not their bikes (sorry). Guess I'm just more of a vintage European bike kinda gal. :-)

Krissy said...

Barb.. Thanks! We were happy with the turnout and even happier to hear them already wanting another one. They even asked if we could do another one this year.

lyndylou.. It was a great day and the weather was perfect for it. I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one who needs a holiday.

becca.. Amen to that! Wooo hooo!

Adorkable.. I'm not sure if I'd know the difference in the sound of a Goldwing. I guess I'll have to sound blonde and ask the guys next time. :)

Soapy.. A doggie obstacle course is a great idea! Thanks for that. Most bikes are cool to me except what most around here call crotch rockets. We had one guy riding one and all of the guys were calling him the ninja. LOL

I saw a limited edition Harley this week--one of only 100 made. It was the detailing and the Gas tank I think. But it was a beautiful Bike!


Canadianbloggergirl said...

Hey Girl! I've never been on a motorcycle but I admire a nice looking bike now and again, while driving.


Krissy said...

John.. Imagine how expensive that probably was! Wow!

CBG.. I am usually the same in that I admire them, but you would rarely get me on one.

Cake Betch said...

Oh man you are preaching to the choir about a vacation. I feel like I'm losing my hold on reality and if I could just get a week or two away from everything (ESPECIALLY school) I might be able to congeal again. Good luck!

Krissy said...

Betch.. Amen to that! I think we all need a break. Hope you get one soon although your posts would be much more boring if you were back in reality. :)
