The Crisis Continues.......

My sister Glenda is 10 years, 9 months older than me. By all accounts she has been the quiet, color in-the-lines, type A, likes things scheduled 5 months in advance type of person. Compared to me--I will strike up a conversation with someone in line at the grocery store with no problem, voice my opinion, selectively organized, and has been know to book a cruise 3 weeks before our anniversary (hey, you can get a great deal if you wait. My sister books hers atleast a year out). Both of us can have a great laugh about the other. We love and support each other 100%.

So imagine my surprise when a year a half ago she bought this.....

I call her it her MLC Car.....that is Mid-Life Crisis Car, she calls it her "coloring outside of the lines" car. I still get a kick when I see her pull up in it.

Well look at what she picked up today
"Who's gonna call me Granny now!!"

Yes, this is HER motorcycle!!!! Imagine how surprised I was when about 2 months ago she announced to me that her and her husband, Mike, decided to find a hobby together. This is what they came up with. I was SHOCKED!!
Glenda and Mike.

They got their motorcycle licenses at the beginning of the month. Since top speed in the class was 20 Mike drove the motorcycle up to my house with Glenda following behind in the MLC Car.

Glenda took the bike for a spin while in my neighborhood. She sure did impress one of our neighbors.

Strike a Pose!

Off for a spin.

I can't wait to see what she does next to top this. I guess she didn't hear that now that she is going to be a Grandma she is suppose to be home in her rocking chair making little booties for the baby and playing bingo on the weekends. : )

Disclaimer: Please note. This post is in pure jest to my sister. She is fully aware that I was going to be writing this. We love each other very much. I do not really think she is "old". I do, however, stand behind the statement of MLC Car. It is just really hilarious to see this side of my sister. I KNEW it was always there. And it is kind of great----She makes me look pretty tame now : )

All this, plus, she likes to tease me with homeschooling and number of children I have. I need something to even things out.

While I deny this is a mid-life crisis. I am certainly having fun. Who is going to call me fun police now? Love you Sissy!
