Toby Keith and the Concerned Biker

One of the concerts I attended at The Chip was Toby Keith.  I've liked a lot of his music and really dig the fact that he's so All American!  He loves our military and I think that's awesome!  Well the last 2 songs he sang were American Soldier and Courtesy of the Red, White, and Blue.  Well with my lack of sleep and not so lacking consumption of multiple cocktails I found myself crying when he sang American Soldier.  Out of the blue this nice old dirty biker walked over and asked if I was ok and if I had lost someone in a war?  I told him no, that I just don't take my freedom lightly and that this song always makes me cry.  He gave me a little squeeze and walked away.  I thought that was very cool that he cared enough to ask!  There are some super awesome bikers in this world and it was my honor to hang with them again this year at Sturgis!

God Bless Our Troops, Vets, Military Families, and Our Fallen Heros!  And God Bless Our Great Land!!  

Don't Tread on Me!

Knowing you for some years now, I can say that you are as red, white and blue as they come Steph. I always enjoy your patriotic posts and have to admit the I get a little choked up myself during "Courtesy of the Red, White & Blue". Thanks for reminding us of those who fought and died for us.

Thanks Dean! I think you are pretty red, white, and blue yourself! You are definitely someone I see eye to eye with more so then not when it comes to our freedoms and such!
