Although it's been terribly hot the last few days (and exaggerated by our nonexistent air conditioner), I as usual, have much to be thankful for.

Matt and I have recently become a part of a community known as OCMOTO. It's a street bike forum for folks living in Orange County, hence the catchy name. Matt's been riding for over two years, with no accidents (thank heavens!) and hasn't ever been to a bike night, or a ride.

We joined this group, posted a forum introducing ourselves and within an hour we had 80 views and 15 replies!! We were welcomed into the group with open arms and encouraged to come to the gatherings. So we did.

We went to Haus of Pizza (ironically where a dear friend works) on Monday, and Cook's Corner on Tuesday. Matt and I are collectively known as MaVi- as that is our screen name on the forum. It's a lot of fun meeting all these new wonderful people who share our common interest. I knew groups like this existed but I had no idea they consisted of such AWESOME people!!

Matt and I are thankful for this new adventure into the street bike realm.
I am thankful for safe rides, good advice, more new friends, and the passion for bikes!

I am thankful for sushi lunch, courtesy of Mike D, as it has been a while since I've had some.

I'm thankful for quick healing.
I'm thankful for fabric markers.
I'm thankful for Guitar Hero and its ability to help me survive this heat wave.

I'm thankful for you, my friend, who shares a few minutes of their time with me and my silly little stories.

Til we meet again-
Virginia
