It's been a while

But it's been a busy while.  We are done with the Neon and we were able to get a lease on a 2007 Pontiac G5.  It's a wonderful car that will suit our purposes perfectly.  After four years, we can get rid of it and get something new.  You can't go wrong with that.  Here is a shot of the new mechanical addition to our family.

Our new four wheeled baby

With that done, it was time for me to finish cleaning up Selene and get her home.  That got seriously hampered when the storage company decided to lock me out of the building.  That was on Friday which meant that I wouldn't have access to my bike for the entire weekend.  Add that to the fact that I had to have the bike out of there by Saturday and you could say that I was slightly miffed.  We got that cleared up on Monday, but I still never got to finish my clean up.  Now I get to freeze my butt off cleaning the last few parts of Selene.

In between all that, we managed to get out to the Blue Knights Motorcycle Show.  It wasn't a large show, but there were a number of nice bikes there and I did get a few good pictures.  Check out the slide show at the bottom of the post for all of them.

To top it all off, I finally get the bike home with hopes to be able to ride it to work tomorrow and this happens...

Snowing...again...

Ah well, at least we have a new car.  :)

Hey, thats a nice car but I hope you don't neglect the bike!

We had great weather last weekend but the bottom just dropped and we've got a cold front hovering for the rest of the week.

betty: Thanks! Just in time, indeed. :)

kt: Agreed, leases are great. I swore that the next car would be a lease. I'm tired of having a car that slowly falls apart while you spend more money...ugh. Believe me, thoughts of California have come to mind...lol. As for the pictures...oops.

vinod: Thanks V! I'll never neglect Selene...hehe. We just had another cold front and got dumped on again...summer can't get here soon enough.
