We have a family of foxes roaming the neighborhood. This one was checking out some small furry mammals under the ramp to the new shed.


It’s a bit hectic around here these days. As I mentioned in an earlier posts, Nick graduated and Alex had his senior prom. Last week, Alex attended orientation at Penn State. There’s a graduation ceremony and parties soon, then he’s off to college at the end of June.  It’s all good, but exhausting.  I hope to get back to blogging in July.


While Alex was selecting courses at Penn State last week, I was chillin’ on a park bench and a mom duck and her 10 babies strolled by.



new bike

I’ve been riding for 34 years, 32 of which were on BMW’s, so obviously, I like them. When I was deciding on a replacement for the last BMW, I planned on buying a 2013 BMW F800GT, the same year, make, and model as my last bike.

A few months ago, I read about the new Triumph Bonneville. I wasn’t aware they were available, so I was surprised when my dealer had a demo, so I took it for a ride. I was hooked, so I ordered one. It will be delivered next week.  This ain’t you daddy’s Triumph.

For the first time in 32 years, there will not be a BMW in the garage.  I think I know what my next restoration project will be 😉

Senior Prom

There’s a lot going on in the Woodruff household these weeks. Sunday, Nick graduated from West Chester. Last night, Alex has his Senior Prom. Alex has orientation at college soon, followed by his graduation party, then his graduation, then off to college at the end of June; the next few weeks will be a blur.

This was my favorite shot from the prom.

Alex and Anna

He he is with his date, they make a cute couple.

Senior Prom

proud moment

Nick graduated from West Chester University this past Sunday; Anna and I are very proud of his accomplishment.

I’m finally getting to posting some photos.  Here he is as he received his diploma.  The photo is a little grainy and soft, but it was cropped from the second photo, which is pretty amazing.
