Economic Stimulation

Marlaina and MacGyver have been spending the week with us.  They arrived on Tuesday and will be leaving sometime in the coming week.  It's been really great having them around - as we never have house guests for really any significant length of time - and it gives me the opportunity cook and entertain.

Yesterday we all went out for breakfast and then ran around town running errands.  We went to the post office, hit the bank, went to the pharmacy to pick up the vaccination medication M & M need for their upcoming trip to India - and then we bought a motorcycle.

And by "we", I mean Marlaina and MacGyver.  That's right.  We went out to mail a package and came home with a BMW touring bike.

This is what they bought.  But not just that - they added extras - plus the touring package, plus comfort, plus luxury.  Marlaina went in with specific needs and didn't leave without them.  She effectively stimulated our local economy.

They're leaving behind the iconic Italian wasp and moving to a Bavarian piece of machinery that embodies what the head of BMW Motorrad calls "sheer riding pleasure".
