Tennessee Wednesday, Part 2
We had some downtime today with the weather not being in our favor. I was going through some old photos on my computer and came across this one of Larry and me. Oh, the early days of the open road and the wind in our hair. Larry looked liked such a rebel on his Honda Shadow. It would give me chills every time I heard the roar of the engine coming around the bend to pick me up. We would ride for hours and then stop at the local gas station for a .25¢ Icee. As I write this, a lump comes to my throat and a tear to my eye. I often jump on my mountain bike and ride around the neighborhood and re-live those glory days. Of course it’s not the same, but every ounce in awhile a wiff of Larry’s Stetson cologne will fill my nostrils and I’m once again transported on to that Hog holding on tight to Larry’s waist :)
In celebration of this memory, the first 5 people to comment on this blog entry will receive an Icee on me!
