I appreciate it when you guys send me your prayers, good vibes, well wishes, warm fuzzies, and anything else positive. I'm not just saying that, I mean that. You know that feeling, don't you? That waiting for the telephone to ring? It's enough to drive me crazy. So what I do about that? I just turn it around to get crazy to drive.
on the highway
That picture was taken from the seat of the Harley. If you look real close, you can see my buddy ahead of me. It's pretty tough to take a picture on the back of a motorcycle. I will tell you this, though. I am very careful when I ride that scooter, and when I get behind the wheel of an automobile. Sort of like these guys.....
I like that one. I started driving when I was 13, how about you? At 14(7th Grade), I was allowed to take driver's ed at Wilson junior high. I already knew how to drive, but they wanted you to have the classroom and behind the wheel time. I was issued a provisional driver's license, but dad thought that was good enough and bought me in 1956 Chevy Coupe. What a fine little car that was. It had an in-line six-cylinder motor and three on the tree.(3 speed standard on the steering column). I never could talk him into a scooter or Vespa or Cushman. But it's funny, he was okay with giving an underaged kid an automobile. That was the beginning of my long addiction with the road.
Have you ever been stuck out in the middle of nowhere? Broke down, out of gas, flat tire, or maybe even an accident? Did you notice that when you couldn't help yourself, someone showed up to help you? Of course you did, or you would still be there, now wouldn't you? I bet each one of you could name a dozen or more times when you were either helped, or you helped someone. My dad used to tell me, what goes around-comes around. I do believe that's the truth.
I hope everyone has the most wonderful month of June that they can even imagine. So, in the words of Arnold Schwarzenegger............... "I'll Be Back!"
