Dodging the Roadkill: Awareness

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – Bikers spend hundreds and THOUSANDS of dollars making sure they’re seen AND heard.  We realize that it’s important to “stand tall” in traffic because, well, motorists are just TOO DAMNED DISTRACTED!.  It’s a problem that I think is getting worse with no prospects of getting better.

Now, I hate to be so pessimistic, but I’ve put a lot of miles on the road over these last three and a half years, and I see a LOT of strange stuff going on behind the wheel of a car.  It’s frustrating and damn right criminal!

I’ve taken all of the safety courses, I’ve bought all of the gear, and I’m as responsible as it gets, so I’ve done my part.

Merry Christmas: T’was the Night before Christmas

 

Written by Clement Moore
Illustrated from Drawings by F.O.C. Darley

A Visit from Saint NicholasClarksville, TN – Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house;
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse;

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there;

The children were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of sugar-plums danced in their heads;

And mamma in her kerchief, and I in my cap,
Had just settled our brains for a long winter’s nap—

A Visit from Saint Nicholas
