Procrastination is my name, Carpe Diem is my game. Oh, that responsibilities never got in the way of enjoying life. Sometime I have to get around to doing our taxes. The way Washington is irresponsibly throwing our money around, it sure doesn't make me feel that paying my taxes is accomplishing any patriotic deed. Unfortunately the IRS doesn't care one way or the other, never mind that you can't get two of their agents to agree on the answer to a question. Oh how I wish Steve Forbes or Mike Huckabee would have advanced further in the primaries than they did.
Well, today, Saturday, was too nice to do taxes or even read my news feeds. Other than reading the newspapers, I picked up Joshua and the dogs so that Mike and his brother in law, Jennifer's brother, could spend some time together and attend some doings at Oconomowoc High School where Jennifer was Vice-Principal. Pat had to work a few hours at her paying job. (being a housewife doesn't pay well).
We visited Minooka Park to let Kanook work off some energy, came back home and did a little yard work. I heard my name being whispered from time to time from the garage so unplugged the Battery Tender from the motorcycle, gassed it up, filled up the tires, lit the fire and enjoyed a ride around Pewaukee Lake. As it has for the many years that I've owned it, the Gold Wing sits through the winter yet never gives me problems when it is time to greet spring-like weather. Pretty good for a Japanese machine, made by Americans in Ohio and being around since 1991. It is due for some routine maintenance however. As the cars also need some repairs, first thing is first so the toys have to wait.
I'm just glad that it gave me another hour away from the woes of the world.
