Don't you just hate it when people create a website and forget to update it??? Me too...sorry about that! Well, here it is 2 years later and I'm still playing guitar (also half-trying to play me dearly-departed sister's banjo, with not much luck) and still riding my atv with my husband and a bunch of crazy friends!

In case I forget to write again for another 2 years or so, I will wish my readers a very Merry Christmas 2011 and may you enjoy a healthy and Happy New Year in 2012!
Kinda corny, but this is the song (parody of Wolverton Mountain) I composed for the Oswego County ATV Club, based in Altmar NY (foothills of the Adirondack Mountains). It's a great club with several hundred members from all over NY. Their support & cooperation with the community and local businesses enables the club to provide approx. 140 miles of trails. They have several events, such as benefit rides, poker runs, participation in community fairs and parades, etc...My husband & I travel 2 & 1/2 hours to join the club for the Annual Campout every August for 5 days of camping (on club property) and ATVing  - lots of fun for the whole family (games, food, bonfires, live music, ATV scavenger hunt & lots of stories and laughs!). I would encourage you to check this club out - you won't find a friendlier, more active club around!

My new 2012 Polaris Sportsman 550EPS - Blue Fire Limited Edition.
Purchased July 2012 at Maddie's Motorsports in Dansville NY - great dealership!
The power steering with anti-kickback (no handlebar jerking when you hit rocks, roots, etc...)
sold me. Years ago I avoided Polaris like the plague, as they had major over-heating problems, but

they have improved their atvs tremendously and I would recommend them to everyone. As a matter of fact, our gang (I mean group) of 9 machines have all switched over to Polaris.
Yikes! Has it really been this long since my last blog??? Well, you know, playing guitar and riding my atv takes up a lot of my time! I'll try to stay a little more current this year, but no promises.

Up and "Running"

Well, here it is - almost half the year's gone by - and I've all, but, ignored my blog. I do apologize to all the millions of people who visit "Guitars and ATVs" for not updating more often. I can no longer blame my internet access cuz I now have "Road Runner" high-speed. The only down side to that is I am now way behind on laundry, which is what I used to do while waiting for dialup. Hopefully I will make the time to add some current photos. I have 4 beautiful grandchildren and would love to show them off!

Unfortunately, the band "Incognito" broke up and I haven't been doing much guitar playing lately - just practice once in a while to keep the caluses built up on the left fingertips!

Still enjoying ATVing, even though the obscenely-high gas prices have forced us to limit our travels. We recently enjoyed participating in the Annual Tour-De-Forest Poker Run in Marienville PA (in the heart of the Allegheny National Forest) with about 1,000 other ATVers. Proceeds benefited the Marienville Fire Dept and other non-profit organizations.

Keep watching for the next thrilling installment!

My Genealogy Website

As Historian for the Family Reunion on my mother's side, I recently created a website, including lineages, stories, reunion updates, photos... you can check it out at :

I'm Back...........

I was on "hiatus" for a while - having internet connection problems - had a very slow dialup and misc phone problems, but now have RoadRunner High Speed, so I'll be able to update my site more often.
