So, I said that I would post about the 'common areas' of our house that all you bikers might find interesting. :)
Our son Eric sent these tins to Big D right after he arrived in England. (The obsession seems to be a family affair.)
Here are some close-ups:
He also sent this one:
Note: If anyone tries to park a Harley (or any motorcycle) in my kitchen, or anywhere else inside my house, I'll shoot first and ask questions later! Hey, a girl's gotta draw the line somewhere!
I bought this at one of Arizona's lovely casinos after I won a bit of cash on the one-armed bandits:
The Family Room
Big D got this RC Harley for Christmas last year from Vicki. Caution: does not work on the carpet!
The HD deck of cards was a gift from a fellow blogger, Paula. Thanks, Paula! We love playing Rummy 500 with these cards!
The HD piggy bank was a gift to Big D from another fellow blogger, Simply Curious Girl. She also sent us a couple of shirts from Santa Cruz HD. Thanks, S!
On the top shelf is D's '48 Indian, and I cannot remember who gave it to him!
On the lower shelf, left side, is a Sporty, just like D's Sporty...I bought that one. On the right is 'my first couch' given to me by our friend Mark for my birthday last year. Mark asked what I wanted for my birthday (right after I got a ride on his 'couch') and I said I wanted a couch! :) Thanks, Mark!
The next few pics show our home office. I think I should mention here that I mostly work from home now, so I use the office more than Big D. This is clearly a 'common area'. (And now that I'm jobless as of tomorrow, I'll really be spending a lot of time here!)
Those are Triumph jugs:
Please note: the original Sporty tank to Big D's bike is in here because it didn't hold enough fuel for those longer rides. We couldn't leave it in the garage and let it get dusty, now could we?!On the shelf below the tank are some random pieces (pistons, pieces of the tranny) of my Sporty that is still a work in progress.
And last, but certainly not least, we go back to the kitchen. Last Thursday, Big D had a slow day at work, so he made this. He asked me where I wanted to hang it. It's hanging just under the tins that are in the first pictures.
I hope you enjoyed the tour of our home. Guys, I know most of the wives will think I'm crazy...and I freely admit that I am. But it's not just Big D that loves being up on two wheels....I've got the obsession, too!
