Around the Country

A friend of my Niece-in-Law stopped by yesterday. She happened to be visiting here from Atlanta. He happened to be driving around the periphery of the USA on his motorcycle, raising money for Shriner’s Children’s Hospitals. On Saturday, he was in Portland. Tomorrow, he’ll be somewhere in Montana. We stored his bike overnight, so it wouldn’t sit out in front of the motel:

Parked in front of the car

Here’s an overhead shot from Google Earth, showing it parked in front of the car. How’s that for timing?

      His grandfather bought it new in 1951. He said that for the bikes of that era, maintenance is what you do over the weekend to make sure you can get to work on Monday. Nice song. Has a filkish feel to it.
