Fort Worth Harley Chapter Christmas Party 2012

December 8, 2012 brought about the chapters Christmas Party at Billy Bobs!  The dress code for the event was Ritz and Redneck.  There seemed to be a pretty good balance between the two dress styles for the night.  Margaret and I went Ritz.  That was a story in itself.  For a couple weeks before the party she was trying on old dresses trying to get the right look.  Every night she would whine about how she looked in a certain dress.  After being asked for an honest opinion on how she looked in one dress our boys said she looked anorexic.  She was crushed, and whined even more. So that being said, on the Friday night before the party we spent the evening shopping for elegant dresses.  After hours of shopping and failure, we happened to come across a woman’s formal wear store in the mall and found almost immediately the dress that would soon be hers.  It was complete agreement the moment we saw it.  Normally the shop will send it off to a tailor to have the length fit since they leave the bottom long but seeing as there was no time for that, Margaret did the sewing herself when she got home with one of her fancy sewing machines.  We also bought some cosmetic jewelry that matched the waist thingy that came with the dress.

Fort Worth Harley Toys For Tots 2012

The day started cool and fresh.  A perfect beginning to a wonderful cause that Fort Worth Harley supports.  We all gathered at the dealership laden with toys for the U.S. Marine Corps. Toys For Tots.  65 bikes total turned out to take part in the ride to the drop off point.  The procession was quite a site going down one of the busiest commercial streets in Fort Worth.  Our road captains did a superb job guiding the procession and making sure our way was clear.  Upon arrival everyone donated multiple toys and we took a lot of group photographs with the Marines onsite.
