He Appreciated It

Yes, I rode to work today.

And . . .

The possible rain didn't materialize, again.

Tomorrow the Red Fox is getting her routine service. If it is going to rain this week, I'm expecting it to happen after work tomorrow on my way to Mike's.

Come Thursday the forecaster's are saying we are going to actually have Summer. Since it has been so mild the coming heat wave could be a killer, literally. Let's hope not. We're having enough excitement already.

As promised, here is the story of telling Deputy J the name of the color of his bike. It happened Friday after work. "I found out the official name of the color of your bike," I said.

"Cool," he replied, "People ask me what color it is and I never knew what to tell them. I say, 'Blue'."

"It's called Aqua Pearl," I said.


I then shared with him my thought he might say, "Aqua Pearl," in the same voice the cowpoke on the salsa commercial uses when he finds out it was made in, "New York City!?". I was relieved when he laughed.

I, also, told him in my blog I refer to the folks who rode by make of their bike and used the example of Deputy Chieftain. But, since there are more than one Harley I would refer to the color of the bike. I then promised to not refer to him as Deputy Aqua Pearl. He really laughed and told me he appreciated it.

I'm not sure but I'm thinking when asked the color of his bike he may still respond, "It's blue."

  • 72F/22C and cloudy for the ride to work.
  • 88F/31C and brightly cloudy for the home ride.


  1. Lol he's going to say "blue"

  2. Deputy Aqua Pearl sounds like a cartoon character. My guess is he will say blue unless they genuinely want to know for some reason.

    1. Deputy Aqua Pearl does have a nice ring to it. I"m still surprised Harley has it as a color.
