it wasnt on monday, but i had a nice 20 mile ride on saturday evening. no
fascinating stories of magical women from yesteryear or daring feats of night
vision. just me, my pacer, the backroads and lots of bugs on my headlight.


Memorial Day 2011

It was hot in Virginia today - about 95. We had my sister-in-law's family over
for the obligatory hamburgers on the grille. After the festivities were over, I
took my 1955 Harley Hummer out for a ride, heading for some local
picturesque photo-opportunity spots.

I had only gone about two miles, when I spotted three beautiful young women
standing at the entrance to a farm just down our road. They were wearing
summer outfits with big hats to keep the hot sun off their delicate faces. They
had many suitcases and it looked like they were either stranded travelers, or
perhaps they were running away from home.

I pulled my mighty Harley Hummer into a sliding U-turn, and quickly headed
back to offer whatever genteel assistance I could provide to these beautiful
young ladies - who were obviously in distress...


You're probably thinking I set this up so I could write a good story, but no, it
was simply serendipity. The three girls had concocted some fantasy story,
found a location, dressed up, and acted the parts while taking photographs of
each other. For some reason, they chose my road.

I failed to retain the entire storyline, being engulfed by concupiscence at the
the time. But I hope that as they assemble the photographs, they'll fondly
remember "the old guy on the old motorcycle" who stopped by, as I will
fondly remember meeting three beautiful young women standing by the side
of a farm road that hot afternoon.

Whoever you are, thank you for the memories.
