Those of us who had more than a couple of, what we called "hero ribbons" and were forced to wear by regulations, know what a pain in the butt those things could be at times lining up in the correct order, spaced right etc. You guys in the military now, experience the same thing..Well, Shelia now makes the pain in the buttness with putting them on and lining them up, a thing of the past. Here are a few pics I previously posted of Sheila at Surles and these will have to do until I go down there again with my camera. Scroll down for a refresher of where Surles Loan is & of Sheila hard at work. REMEMBER: IF YOU WANT TO SEE THE PICTURE BIGGER, CLICK ON THE PICTURE..
This is Shelia hard at work. She does quality work at very reasonable rates. So reasonable, that I use her exclusively for my vest work. She also does a tremendous amount of sewing on of patches, stripes & other military things for all branches of the military.
This is Sheila & Capt. "Pattie". Pattie is a good friend and we ride with her & her husband Jim quite a bit. She is stationed out at Sheppard AFB and I think Sheila sews items on Patties uniforms too..
Surles loan is located just North of the main gate of SAFB, on the West side of the street. The phone number is: 940-855-3241. Sheila can be reached at 940-636-9565 for info on the Thin Military Ribbons. Give her a call and order up yours today. And don't forget to check out her website:

Doug watches as Clint sits on Greg's Harley. Greg stands back and waits to see what happens. That is Clint's Police car in the background..It was raining in various parts of the city so he came by car

I want to start this post off by showing this patch. When we went to leave Meers after eating lunch, a soldier in uniform walked up to me. He had apparently seen the PGR sticker I have on my windshield. He asked if I was a Patriot Guard Rider (http://www.patriotguard.org/). When I told him that I was, he took his unit patch off of the right breast of his uniform & handed it to me. He said he wanted me to have it and that they appreciated what we did. So, needless to say I was moved and rendered speechless. I thanked him for the sacrifices he & the others make for our freedom and then we left. I would like everyone that reads my blog to remember to keep the men & women in uniform, in their prayers daily, for their safety & safe return home from where ever they are sent. Like it or not, we would not have the freedom that we have, if it weren't for these soldiers and others before them. A fact a lot of American's seem to forget lately..
We met at the Braums in Burkburnett Texas at 0815 hrs with ksu at 0830 hrs. Pictured are Lacy, Steve & Clint. Christina had a Dr. appointment and caught up with us at the Medicine Park exit off of I-44, just North of Lawton/Ft. Sill Oklahoma
Steve, me & Clint at the Welcome to Geronimo Okla. sign
Clint, Lacy & Steve at the Burger King...
Christina at Lookout Point
Clint, Steve & Christina. Lacy is trying out Clint's bike
Lacy & Steve on Lookout Point.
It was 106 degrees on the way home & Lacy was feeling every degree. We had to stop over and wet her down with cold water & cold bandana's. There was no shade to be found where we we at..But she made it home and I talked to Steve and after Lacy got to cooling off in the air conditioning, she felt better..Had me worried though..
This will conclude this post. Other than being too hot on the way home, this was a good ride & I had fun & got to know everyone a little better. Scroll down for more rides/events & posts and don't forget to click on the "older posts" link on the bottom of EACH page for even more, back to Jan 08. Until next ride, event or post, ya'll be careful out there & ride safe.........................JOHN
