Happy New Year, 2012

Happy New Year! Cary and I have been spring cleaning … In with the new and out with the old … Trips to Goodwill and The Container Store … Our home looks great!

Nesting … and organizing our craft supplies …

We had our last motorcycle club meeting of the year on Thursday night … A nice couple from Ireland and The Iron Horsemen MCC visited, bearing a super-nice fellowship trophy and lots of schwag … We loved them!

We also voted in a new prospect, Jen, which makes at least ten new members this year! Wow, how’d that happen? A third of them were women, and a third were from New Jersey! Ha.

I think that Cary and Tegan had a lot to do with attracting all the new female members … a good thing …

We also held elections for next year … Kalle ran for President and I ran to be his Vice President …

We did OK, and are hoping to have fun with our new responsibility … The club is a mom and pop, or old sweater club, or small volunteer social club … I think only fourty members (of maybe 108 total) cast votes … Our wonderful outgoing President, Brian Holm, seemed awfully happy to be done with his commitment though, and refused to be re-nominated … No one would have run against him had he wanted the job again …

Anyway, it is fun, or should be, and is fun almost all the time … We’ll be at the motorcycle clubhouse today, watching college football and motorcycle movies … yay!
