Dodging the Roadkill: Bank Robbery

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – On Thanksgiving morning, I saddled up on my big black horse to take a ride before all the family get togethers. It was a crisp, but sunny morning, so I decided to take off on a route that takes me through parts of Tennessee and Kentucky. 

I ride down Highway 79, then turn on state route 848.  From there, I pick up highway 102 to highway 25.  That takes me to highway 431 where I ride through Adairville KY, then on to Russellville, KY where today’s story takes place. 

I’ve been riding all up through here for years, and if I’m just looking to get a few hours of “wind” therapy, it’s one of my “go to” routes, and in all my years of living and riding in this area, I NEVER knew that a famous bank robbery occurred here, by one of the most notorious gangs in American history.

Wind Therapy: Full day in the Ozarks

 

TravelEminence, MO – After a great night’s sleep along the Jack’s Fork River, I rolled out of bed to a beautiful sunrise and a calm breeze coming off the water.

I needed coffee, so it was off the Margie’s Restaurant in the middle of town.  I was greeted by a handful of locals who were all abuzz about, what else, politics.

It was a Trump crowd.

I had the morning special which was two eggs over easy, sausage and biscuits and glorious cups of coffee.  After chatting it up with the waitress about where some good roads would be to ride, I was off to saddle up.

Barn Bowling

 

Semi-daily preaching by a Semi-daily Preacher on a semi-daily basis

Disneyland had nothin’ on Grandpa’s barn.  Nothing.

If you were 10 years old, like me and my cousin Randy were, you could have happily spent several years of your life trapped in that barn, if only “they’d” have let you. 

Who needs school or food or a stupid pool when you have a barn like Grandpa’s to mess around in?

Everything a kid could have ever wanted was in that barn.  Cowboy hats, a tractor, tractor parts, tractor tires, car tires, truck tires, snow tires, and various inexplicable farm equipment parts were all scattered around the place like toaster crumbs. 

What to us were dusty, old pirate chests were filled with every kind of undiscovered treasure: old clothes, magazines from the 1920’s, faded photos of ancient strangers, milk crates of unused Polaroid camera film, masking taped board games, a war helmet, some rubber boots, a box of bolts.  «Read the rest of this article»

Emergency Preacher Crafts
Let’s face it.  Preachers just don’t do crafts like they used to.

Jesus was a woodworker. 
Paul made tents.  Peter mended nets.
Joseph’s dad liked to tie-dye coats of many colors.

Nowadays, Preachers golf.  Or worse yet, bowl.  I know one Preacher in Omaha who is on a paintball team.  He isn’t that good.  I know he isn’t any good because whenever he  preaches he has a slight orange glow around his forehead and cheeks.  He’s pretty bruised up too.  He may wanna try something else.  Like maybe a nice, safe Turner Classic Movies Marathon. «Read the rest of this article»
