OK, here it is Friday, and I'm ALL caught up on my work. I have on my jeans, my boots and my bike is in great shape and gassed up in the garage. Why is it that it's raining cats and dogs and the wind is blowing 35 mph. And why does it do this every time I get some time. I'm not a bad guy. I don't lie (at least not the kind that hurt anyone) I won't steal, I'm kind to children and animals. All I want is a dry road. Maybe I need to go over to the local church and get father to help me out.
At a junior high school, many of the older girls were starting to experiment with makeup and lipstick. A problem arose when several of the young ladies would put on the lipstick, then practice their kissing techniques on the bathroom mirrors. This caused the janitor a great deal of time and frustration cleaning the mirrors several times a day. Finally he went to the principal and expressed his concerns.
The principal called a large group of the girls wearing lipstick into her office and escorted them to the bathroom. She calmly explained what she knew about the situation, and how the behavior was causing the janitor so much extra time each day when he could be tending to other duties. When she concluded she called the janitor in and told the girls to observe the time involved in cleaning off the lipstick. The janitor picked up his squeegee, dipped it in the nearest toilet and began cleaning the mirror. The lip marks were never a problem again. Some people teach, others educate.
After what seems like and endless spring with rain 2 out of 3 days, the forecast is dry for a while now. Living in Missouri this year has been an adventure dodging rain and thunderstorms. So this beautiful Saturday morning, I'm gonna head out and put some miles on the scooter. Tomorrow, our HOG chapter is having a Poker Run. That should get me another 300 miles or so. Monday is Million Mile Monday for HOG. HOG members are asked to ride to work or whatever and log their mile on , with the goal of logging a million miles total. So if youre a HOG member, do your part. I personally plan to go about 100 miles north to Canton, MO, where some in-laws live and also the home of one of the few levees still intact along the Missouri side of the Mississippi. By the way, during the 500 year flood of 1993 it was the only levee to survive and may well be again. Anyway I'm gonna ride up, maybe sandbag for a while, have lunch with in-laws and ride home out thru the countryside should get 250 or 300 that way, plus get tho see a lot of floodwaters on the way up. I'd get to see more, but most of the scenic river road (79) is closed due to high water. Everone have a safe weekend. And I hope your weather affords good riding too.
