After dinner we dropped Lauren off at the LaCrosse Symphony's concert hall on the campus of Viterbo University and waited in the lounge area with some very heavy duty people watching for the 7:30 concert to begin.
I knew it would be an especially good evening when I saw this ad in the Program Notes, sharing a certain hobby of Maestro Alexander Platt, here promoting one of the area's major LaCrosse Symphony Sponsors......
Before we leave the subject of music, the other weekend Peg and I watched (it wasn't very easy) Bill Murray's Netflix Christmas Special. I'd heard a couple of reviews that mostly panned the production but we were willing to give it a go, hoping for some of the holiday warmth and joy present in the old Bing Crosby styled shows of old. Threatening at any moment to Roku a different selection, I'm glad that we stuck with it at least long enough to hear our Little Troublemaker Miley Cyrus sing "Silent Night". It's just possible that even though angels are known to have wings, they may not always wear them 24/7. If you've not heard, look for it.
The TW200 is out of the shop and ready for Big 2016 Adventure.
December 20th and I was out riding through the pasture without a hat, without gloves.
The Sport Touring Honda CT90 quickly had an oil change and a valve check, spending so little time in the shop that it didn't really have a chance to warm to workshop temperature.
Next is the big black one......
Actung.. Vot ga do'n to der Swartz ?ReplyDelete
S&S pistons, cams and a new 3rd gear :)ReplyDelete
All that after an oil change and new rear tire.
Hopefully, the Maestro was just posing thus to humor the sponsor....not quite ATGATT....kind of looks like a hurried photoshopped pic actually.ReplyDelete
Dom, I'm in agreement about the photo being modified. Experience tells me that many of the S&S customers are not ATGATT'rs.Delete
Interesting ad from the maestro. I do agree with Dom, it looks a little photo shopped, all in good fun I am sure.ReplyDelete
I am glad your rains have let up. We are still waiting for ours to cease.
We've seen Very Murray Christmas come up on our streaming Netflix suggestions, but were a little scared to watch it. We might just have to give it a try now.
I've been hearing about your wet weather, too much for too many. So wish we could spread it around more evenly.Delete
To be fair, I enjoyed it more than I thought I would. Definitely has a Murray feel but you can make your own conclusions.
Looks like you won't get bored over the holidays, Coop. Wishing you all the best for 2016.ReplyDelete
Sonja, thanks so much! All the best to you and Roland as well (enjoy that new bike!!)Delete
I don't remember when I last felt bored, bet you can't remember that feeling either.
Cool pictures of the bike! Looks like you had a great trip. Thanks for the post.ReplyDelete
Thanks Levi, glad you stopped by!Delete
What a lovely theme for a concert ... I'm sure it was wonderful. Thank you El Nino for the extended riding season even if home doesn't feel like Christmas this year. (And since I'm not riding, thank you El Nino for not having to shovel this!)ReplyDelete
Karen, we had no snow and essentially have had none, at least right here at home. Today it came, not to any depth, but it is white outside and from what I've been hearing everywhere, that's what we wanted :)Delete
Hope you enjoy your holiday season. A little sun or a little more than a little would be nice here, but looks like ice and sleet and wind on the way. I think you are in line for some heavy snow...take care.ReplyDelete
Thank you Martha, we've had some very fine days. Just got home from celebrating with another side of the family and drove in some wonderful almost full moonlight. Snow had been predicted but this evening we've got high, ultra thin clouds permitting a moon sighting instead. Hope you managed to miss anything bad!Delete
