Guess Who's Coming to Phoenix? Part II

I've had some really great responses. I guess it was natural for everyone to guess that my kids or grandkids were coming out for a visit. I should have eliminated them for you. I did have a few GREAT guesses, though. Some of my favorites were: B.B.: "Is it me?" Mr. M: "Jesus Christ Superstar" Joker: "Wayne Newton and the Hee Haw girls" Dave: "...or maybe Aerosmith is playing in your backyard?" (This was my absolute favorite, BTW.) Well, I can assure you all that Aerosmith is not playing in my backyard...yet. :) You will all get a formal invitation when that happens - trust me!! Dean's answer was brilliant. He guessed Dave and/or Willy D. because they are geographically the closest to us, and hadn't commented up to that point. (Where the hell is Willy D. anyway?) Steph had a great guess, she used her powers of deduction. She guessed Mr. M or Joker because up to that point they were the only ones who hadn't guessed it was a member of my family. And my BFF V emailed me and asked me for a hint...that was priceless. :) Thanks for the coffee today, V! It was great to see you! ;) At the end of his post, Poltergeist, Big D opened it up for anyone who wanted to come ride to Yuma with us next weekend for an HA run, to come on out. Shortly after that post I got an email from Joker to take us up on it. Woo-hooo!!!! Joker will be staying at La Casa Nelson and riding to Yuma with us next week! I think Mrs. RC said she could tell I was so excited that I was jumping out of my skin, and she was right on target! I really cannot wait to finally meet Joker! I'm not sure if most of you know, but when we moved to Arizona, we lived in the same town that Joker lives in. It's amazing that we never ran into him while we lived there...it's not really a big place. :) I really do wish all of you could come with us. It's going to be in the high 70s next weekend, and it would be a blast to ride with all of you. Maybe someday. I will defintely post pics from our Yuma run, and our visit with Mr. Joker. :)

No doubt I'm a poor stand-in for the Hee-Haw girls, but I am willing to learn ;)

I'm so jelly...you are all going to have so much damn fun that we'll be reading about it for weeks! Just keep him in check around the HA so that KT DID and I can meet him in Sturgis. lol...kidding...he's smarter then the average bear so he'll be fine! Have fun and take lots of pictures.

I just had the funniest thought pop in my head with Joker's Hee Haw girl talk...I can see Dave and Willy standing there with baseball caps cocked to the side and pieces of hay in their mouth say'n..."I'm a pickin and I'm a grinnin." LMAO Hee hee hee Haw Haw!

Ok...wow...5am and I'm up too early!

I’m still here Ann. My computer was down for a few days, had some critters crawling around in it (damn porn sites!). A little duct tape, bailing wire and open hard drive surgery and it’s all-better. That’s great that Joker is coming out there. I wish I could make the trip next weekend. Right now it’s just not in the cards.

haha. fun!

Jen said...

Be sure to have my wedding announcement on display!!




B.B. said...

I'm so jealous! I know you'll all have a great time, I can't wait to read all about it.

Ann said...

Joker, I think we'd have more fun with you than the Hee-Haw girls anyway!

Steph: You crack me up!

Willy D: Glad you're back up and running. Too bad you can't make it this weekend. Maybe in April? We'll talk.

QB: Yes, it will be fun!

Jen: Your wedding announcement is proudly on display! I love the pics, BTW. Thanks for sending and congrats! (You are such an instigator!)

BB: Wish you and Dave could come out, too. I'll be sure to take lots of pics to post. :)

Dean "D-Day" said...

Absolutely green with envy!!!
Not only that he just gets to ride but that he's visiting Casa la Nelson too!

Lady Ridesalot said...

Wow! To be a fly on the wall for that! I'm looking forward to what kind of mischief we'll hear about during that weekend! I guess I'm like everyone else, and a little jealous that we can't be there too. Ya'll have a great time and don't hold back any details! :)

FLHX_Dave said...

Oh shit!!!! WTF! WTF! So close yet so far away. I have already promised my kids that weekend and there ain't no way I'm gonna miss that.

I would rather hook up with you guys than meet Eric Clapton or the President, and that ain't no big fish story.

Well, ...waiting for "the rest of the story"

Paula said...

That will be so fun!!

Mr. Motorcycle said...

Looking forward to it!

Meeting Joker, Ann, and Big D would be much cooler then meeting Clapton or the President.
