Fun Filled Weekend

Last weekend my hubby and I took 3 days and went up to Clearlake for a relaxing time of motorcycle riding, concerts and gambling. I don't which one I like more ha ha ha. We started out Saturday riding up to Konocti Harbor to check out the gift shop which I LOVE. While there we were comped tickets to the REO Speedwagon, Sticks and 38 Special concert later that night! What a surprise that was. Anyone in high school in the 80's remembers these guys.

So later that night we went back for the concert only to have it CANCELLED less than one minute into 38 Special (the first act) because the stage lights fell from the hoists! You never saw people clear a stage so fast in your life! The picture is kinda blurry but the lights should have been up by the blue tarp. SCAAAAARRRRY

But while we were hanging around waiting for the crazy drunks to exit the location and make the mountain roads safe for us motorcyclists, I took some pics.

This photo is of one of the tour buses that housed some of their equipment. Plus off to the left you can see two more buses kinda hidden

Here you can see four tour buses, check out all those air conditioner on top. You can see the semi trailer that was packed just with souvenirs.

Here is a close up of them. They all had Tennessee plates on them. Somehow I don't picture 80's rock bands from Tennessee lol.

Look at the beautiful lake.

Here is my hubby

Here is ME
Before we went to the concert, we went up Cobb Mountain which is a beautiful ride and stopped at our favorite watering hole. lol Come to think of it I don't even know what it is called. So we'll just call it the Cobb Watering Hole....

These are our friends Bruce and Cindy that we ride around with. They are a hoot!

Hubby posing for more pictures....

This is where we sit each morning and drink our coffee. There are two big beautiful trees and the breeze is just enough, it's like camping it's so relaxing.

OK, notice the white top I am wearing here?? Well there I was, sitting on the chair reading a magazine while my friend is loading her bike. My hubby is sitting next to me as we are already to go just waiting for my friends hubby to lock up the house. All the sudden I look up and notice my hubby looking at my friend and then looking at me. I am like, "What?" "You got something else you can wear?" he says, (Whaaat?!) "What do you mean, what's wrong with what I have on!!!!" My friend pipes up and says, "Mel, you'd wear that shirt to the store not on a bike! This is bike country" I was wearing a light weight pink T-shirt just so you know! I look at my hubby and he says, "Well, you got to look the part". lol So I get up and toss my magazine on the chair and march in the house letting the screen door slam and yelling, "Don't lock up yet I have to CHANGE." He laughs at me an asks why and I tell him that I am not showing enough boob! He cracks up. So I come out in my white spaghetti strapped shirt with the built in bra and hubby says, Hmmmm, so I turn around and march back in the house and the guy is laughing at me harder as I give him a dirty look. I whip out my black WONDER BRA put the white shirt back on and Viola! Boobs! I walked outside and went right up to hubby and put his head right THERE. "Is THAT enough boob for you!!!" lol I thought he would die of mortification and my friend about died as mis prim and proper Melody did this. They will talk about that day forever, how Melody morphed into BIKER CHICK (without the tattoos)

Can you believe the price of gas!!
More beautiful country roads.

Bruce and my hubby

Here are a few homes for sale on the water......$$$$$

Here is the right side of the road...

Here is the left. Amazing huh??
This is Lakeport, I love the store fronts, they have that old time look.

I think this is the courthouse but not sure.

This was such a nice break in our busy life that I had to share it you all of you. I hope you all had a fabulous holiday weekend and said hi to a Veteran somewhere.

Most Embarrassing Moment(s)

My blogger friend Valerie at It's a Wonderful Life did an embarrassing moment blog and I decided to do it too. Only, I have two very distinct moments that just pop into my head that will be forever etched on my brain.

Moment #1.
My daughter Jackie needed to get her first training bra. I had been putting it off for quite some time because I just could not deal with it. So one day we finally went to K-mart and as we are looking for bras I am looking around and over my shoulder because I don't want anyone to see me doing this. We pick out a few and she goes to try them on. When she calls me in the dressing room I start to hyperventilate. I am actually sweating and getting faint at the site of my little baby girl in a BRA. I am trying be mature and mommy like, trying to see that they fit properly but come on, how can a training bra NOT FIT. Anyway, we get two bras and I toss them into the BIG HUGE EMPTY CART and I just can't bring my self to go to the counter plop down two bras. Sooooooo, I wander around the women's section and I pick out the first coat I see that is big enough to through in the cart and cover the entire bottom of it. Hide bras and no one knows I have them........clever, very clever. I continued to hide bras by the coat at the check out. It was one of the LONGEST days of my life..... UPDATE: Ladies, I still have that coat actually and recently put it out for the's time to move on lol.

Moment #2.
I was standing in the checkout line at the supermarket and was rummaging through my purse for my brush. Just as I grab my brush and whip it out of my purse, out flies a UFO, is it a bird, plane, no its a thin Kotex maxi pad that had been caught on the teeth of the brush! It flew clear across to the next isle. Well, I was mortified as you can imagine. There is just no excuse to cover THAT one up. I did NOT want to go and retrieve it either. I did but I was secretly hoping that if I stayed where I was everyone would forget about the UFO they just saw.

What is your most embarrassing moment or moments?
