FNDR 8-12 and ride 8-13

We rode to Althea's Vault in Washington, OK. for the Friday Night Dinner ride...Have to say, it was really good.  The food was really good...no crowd..LOL...we were about it.  When I called to reserve, the girl said there would be no problem getting a space, and she wasn't lying...  Ended up bringing brownies home, as it was a toss up between them or the cinnamon rolls.  The burgers really looked great.  Will have to go back and try some of the other food they offer.
Got up on Saturday, and since the weather didn't permit us to ride on Friday, we decided to ride to Marlow today and eat Italian food at Giuseppe's.  Met up with Tom, and Steve and Jennifer in Tuttle and off we go.  The weather was a little warm, but when you were moving it was just perfect.  We make it to Marlow about 1pm, and we had to wait about 20 minutes for a table.  The food was good, but think we all voted that there is some better Italian food in OKC.  After we eat, we ride to Rush Springs.  Their watermelon festival was going on.  Got to Main street, and the traffic was at a stand still.  We sat for about 5 minutes, and no one was moving, so we pulled out of line and proceeded to find a way out of this mayhem.  Come to find out, the train tracks had trains on both tracks, moving at a snails pace.  Think it was a good idea to forgo the festival.  We ride on to Chickasha and stop and decide that Tom needs an oil change.  We head back to the city to get a filter at World.  We get there and they are having free ice cream and lemonade, so of course we have to have some.  Filter in hand, and we are off to Chukadi acre to work on Tom's bike.  The Alvey's go to their house and get their new little puppies, and come out to the house.  Their dogs met our dogs and all was good.  We sat outside and talked and had a really nice evening.  So nice to finally get to ride without it being so darn hot.  I did get a sunburn, and oh, by the way, we rode Pearl.  Ginger is in the shop with her "clutch issue".  Sure hope they get the new cable in this week, as we are leaving for Arkansas on Friday.  Enjoyed the day.  Mileage about 250. :)
