Dueling Darlings - May

Our girl Carol from the Dueling Darlings on SCS sent us our kit this month.   The image is from Bombshell Stamps.

The motorcycle image reminded me of the Harley Davidson my brother had.  I had my wildest bike ride on that thing!  I was still in high school and my brother lived out on his own.  We were at his house for a party.  I really do not know what happened, but next thing you know my brother and I are on his bike in a hurry.   My friend (remember the Eye Batter?) was with my brother's roommate on his bike and we are off!  Like police chase off.  Like no helmets off.  Like my brother screaming "If I lean, you lean" off.   Like me yelling back "Okay, but if you kill me mom is going to be really mad at you" off.  His neighborhood was older and had narrow unpaved side streets - with big pot holes - man we caught some air.

We did elude the police (remember I am the good child) and went back to the house and then the police showed up!  We were just sitting on the sofa like we had not just been on a high speed chase a few minutes earlier.  I am sure my hair looked really cute!  Needless to say, they could not prove anything and we were total jerks for doing it.  It was a short time later that my brother crashed that Harley.  Ironically, on his own street!  Of course high speed was involved.

Well, the good child needs to get a few things done, since I can now check off my May duel card.  Hope you have a great day!

Oh what a hair-raising story that ride on the Harley is. I was on the edge of my seat wondering the outcome. I'm glad you were safe, albeit a little bit of a rebel, but still safe. ;)

Your card is a great one, too - your motorcycle looks fabulous!
