    Signs of the times

    Spotted on my AM ride out in the boonies today:



    And another:



    I guess you had to be there.

    BTW, for the first time ever, I had a chance to crush souls. I encountered two riders and overtook them, going up a hill, even.

    Like an offensive linesman who for the first time in his career recovers a fumble in the end zone and has no idea how to celebrate, I didn't really know what to do, so I just rode along side them and chatted. One was my age, the other in his late 60's. Both very nice. I told them they sucked.

    Just kidding. For humility I went down and rode up Wibble Hill Road.

    Anyway, clear skies and temperature in the low 60s. Nothing but good sensations today.

    I guess that's it.

    I know you are a rookie at soul crushing but hope you had the moxie that once past the two riders you sat up and took a long drink while riding away, no matter how much it hurt. Don't worry about celebrations, some guys were always asked to "hike the ball" on school yard games, then grew up to hike the ball in college and pro games.

    We've got a few decorations going up around these parts, but not as good as those in your shots.

    Here lies Lester Moor
    Four shots from a 44
    No less no more

    As to fame
    the grave yard in my home town was used in the origional B & W "Night of the Living Dead

    I once rented a rural Alabama house with a graveyard in the front yard. Dates on the grave stones were 1888 circa.

    George Washington had an arrow shot at him by a native american. That happened near where i grew up

    My wife and i entered Dennys and the seater ask "two?" I looked at my wife and counted me and her and i said "the last time i checked"
