We made memories we'll never forget. These memories are what THIS BLOG is made of! Enjoy them while we make MORE memories worthy of posting here for your enjoyment.

Best Place In The House


I spent a whole weekend cleaning a storage room out trying to make it into a closet.


Cooper spent the whole time with me.


At times there were no places to sit or lay down for quite a while.


I tried my best to make him comfortable but there wasn’t much I could do.



So when I got a phone call I sat on the floor to chat and take a break. 


Cooper crawled up on me and fell asleep.



He was exhausted from watching me work.

Porta Potty For Pups


This is something every veterinarian should have outside their office.


It has obviously been well peed on.



Had tons of smells to completely capture Cooper’s interest.


And it’s in just the right place for a dog to visit on his way into his appointment and after he’s done.




And it makes a funny blog post for you.

Legacy Ride Pictures

When we did the Legacy Ride a couple months ago there was a person there who got some great pictures of Cooper.


He was also very willing to be photographed.


Well, when isn’t he really.



They also got a fairly good shot of Cooper’s vest in case you’d like a better look.

My Pillow Pal

Here was a day… weekend if I remember correctly and I needed a nap.  Somehow while I was sleeping the pillow slid onto Cooper and he let me sleep on him.



What a sweet feeling to be allowed to nap with him any time I want.  He’s always game.

Half A Walt Lap Is Better Than None

One of Cooper’s favorite laps is somewhat out of commission right now.


Walter had knee surgery and can’t really let Cooper lay on him as he usually does.


So I pulled my chair right up next to Walter’s so we were kind of sitting shoulder to shoulder.




Cooper laid across my lap with his head on Walter’s good leg.  It wasn’t really what he wanted but it was good enough for the time being.


It really warmed Walter’s heart to see how badly Cooper wanted to sit with him.

Tool Box Sink

We went to the local flea market.  This was a really cool sink made out of a tool box.



I was taking a picture of Warren with it but Cooper got in there too.  Seems like anywhere there is a camera… there’s Cooper.

Andy Likes Cooper's Tail - Video

If you saw yesterday’s entry, this is the video to that story.



You get to see the real interaction between them.

Andy Likes Cooper's Tail

Andy and Cooper love each other, but neither of them want the other one to touch them.  It’s the weirdest relationship ever.


Cooper grew up on Andy’s lap but then Cooper got too big.  Since then the have been very close from a distance.



Well… surprise to me… here they were paying attention to each other with no objection.  Who would have thought this would ever happen again.

Had A Party

My daughter came to feed Cooper mid morning as she always does.


She dropped my mother’s laundry off for me to do while she was there.


Cooper seemed to think it was cause to party.


He had his bed pulled apart and obviously made a nest in my mother’s laundry.


I’d love to have a camera on him so I can see what he does sometimes when no one is home.

This is Steve…. He’s Big Nick’s Dad.



He works hard on keeping his son’s legacy alive.  He’s a hard working man.  He greats us every year.

Big Nick's Run '17 - Cooper

And of course you wouldn’t have a motorcycle run without someone getting Cooper to be cute so they could take pictures of him.


He loves the attention.



People love his personality.



It’s a win all the way around if you ask me.

Big Nick's Run '17 - The Paper

I pulled these pictures from an on line news paper that covered Big Nick’s Ride this year.


I’ll explain them all in little captions under each picture.

You can see Cooper in this picture

This is at the end of the run where all the bikes pull into a big parking lot.

This is the parking lot.  They don't have the whole thing in the picture.  It's too big.


These two ride a lot.  This trailer gets towed behind their owner's bike.

This run was escorted  by police.  Here is the very beginning with the police pulling in under the big flag first.

It's pretty cool when the new paper focuses on your bike over all the rest in your group.  Yup this is my bike.

Big Nick's Run '17 - Flags Are Flying


Once we’re all on the road we follow the ride till the end,


where there is a meal and a party. 


The ride is the best part.  Our group is invited to attend with flags flying.


And in Cooper’s case… Hair flying too.



He’s so at home on the back of my bike.  


It’s so good to have him with me everywhere.


I’m a lucky woman.

Big Nicks Run '17

In July we did Big Nick’s Run.  Flying flags to honor another fallen great hero.


The staging area happens in two parts.  Those who are riding in a place of honor, like Family members, Gold Star Families and Groups who have a special interest like mine who fly flags.  Then there are those who are general riders who line up somewhere else.  It takes a while to get all the bikes registered etc., so we walk around for a bit.

Look at the blue bike a little right of center in the back ground...
Can you see Cooper's little face???
We depart the parking lot as we were staged and ride out in staggered formation until all the bikes are out.  It’s really an amazing site to see.
