#61 Worth the Wait

After Saturday's motorcycle fiasco, Sunday went off without a hitch. The weather again was beautiful. We took the same route & both grimaced a bit when we passed the scene of the previous day's debacle. Making it past that point was like breaking through the proverbial
"glass ceiling". After that the road got smoother & curvier & we hadn't reached the Blue Ridge Parkway yet. Once we reached the Parkway the road stretched out some & gave us some incredible vistas. We made a few stops, took some pictures(see Mary on Facebook), & just enjoyed the ride. We got off where the Blue Ridge Pkwy turns into Skyline Drive. That will be another ride on another day. Instead of the interstate we rode through some of the towns that make up that segment of the country we call "Small Town America". The sky started to cloud up so to the interstate & a quick ride home before the rain.

Monday as usual was laundry day so into town we go. The town is Staunton if I haven't mentioned it before. I stopped in at the local Ford dealer to schedule some routine maintenance & we did our grocery shopping after the laundry was done. It was a good day to get our chores done since Sunday's evening rain is forecast to last through Monday & into Tuesday. The truck will be in the shop Friday when the forecast is for perfect motorcycle weather.

First to those who asked for pictures of "St Monte", like any super hero, Monte came in, saved the day, & disappeared in a flash. So, no we don't have any pictures of Monte but that won't make him any less memorable! Second, I really appreciate the comments on the blog. I hope my hints on commenting helped. Anyone having trouble commenting refer to blog #35 if you didn't see it before. And third, the last blog may have been a little long but I felt the story needed telling just to let everyone know that there are still people out there who care about their fellow man. I'll stop blabbing now from our home in soggy Greenville because....

Home is where we park it,
Frank & Mary

  1. You never know, Monte might just have been a true angel sent down to help you along. It is good to hear that in all this craziness there are still good people out there in the world. We tend to forget that as we hear nothing but horrific events on the news these days.

    Hugs to you both and good belly rub for my Foxy girl,
