This weekend, for the first time, I did the ABCs of Touring in a day.  What it is is you go to a city or county, for each letter inthe alphabet, get your photo taken in front of a sign with your bike, holding an issue of HOG Enthusiast magazine.  We started at 5:45 am and got to Quincy at 5:35 pm.  What a DAY...and then we came back...

Bomber
Posted April 13, 2009

Bomber loves to play in the cat tree and I caught him dangling the kitty.  This reminded me of the Michael Jackson Incident where he dangled one of his kids over the edge of a balcony.
