Riding with Distinguished Friends

This morning I turned out for The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride, an annual motorcycle event. This year Distinguished Gentleman’s Rides were held in 401 cities and towns in 79 countries. The rides are organized to help raise awareness of and fund research on prostate cancer. Individual riders or groups of riders raise funds or donate directly, […]


More Friday Slackness

Whoa, two posts in one day. Guess I wasn’t done earlier.

I’m back from my dry run at the museum. I borrowed the volunteer golf cart and drove the tram tour route, talking about all the aircraft I plan to cover on live tours with visitors once I certify. If anyone saw me putting around, […]


Wednesday Bag o’ Photos

I’m not sure what this post is supposed to be about, a motorcycle ride with Donna’s sister Georgianna, or testing an unfamiliar point & shoot digital camera. I’ll start with the camera.

Our old Canon G9 point & shoot was the family camera until we bought a big […]


Two-Wheeled Trutherism (& a Doggie Update)

California coast, 1970

If you read my motorcycle posts you know I’m a biker truther. That’s what they’re calling members of the motorcycling community who are beginning to question police and media accounts of what happened in Waco, Texas last Sunday, when nine bikers were killed by gunfire and another eighteen injured during an […]

South of Flagstaff, Arizona

My friend and motorcycle maintenance guru Ed is a fellow Goldwing rider. We get along well, see eye-to-eye on how to ride, […]


Tuesday Bag o’ Flag

Polly’s home with her boyfriend in Ajo and Angie’s back in Tampa. I should be rushing to catch up with bloggage and book reviews, but my thoughts are random and disorganized. I’m leaving on a five-day motorcycle trip Thursday; maybe I’ll get back in the groove once I get some miles under my belt.

Anent […]


Saturday Update

I feel bad about not blogging. With the house full of company the past week and a half, my only internet access has been via iPhone or iPad. Sure, lots of folks are perfectly happy typing with one or two fingers, but I’m not one of them. I took a typing class in 9th grade […]


Thursday Bag o’ Links

Many months ago I said I’d monitor news coverage of the trials of the 11 motorcyclists arrested after a videotaped beating of a motorist in New York City. I believed then, and believe now, that the motorist did something to start the fight, but unfortunately whatever happened to set things in motion was not […]
