Some random thoughts by Alan B. Combs.

Realizing it is one of the really dangerous things one can do, I still have always liked motorcycles. Back when I was young and slightly more in my prime, I rode a twin-cylinder Honda. My rule was that I would never ride a bike larger than I could upright if it ever fell over. For various reasons, I have walked away from the beasts, but I still love ‘em.

Category: Rated G, Shaggy Dogs

The Witching Time of Fright” by Cynthia MacGregor from “The Ants Are My Friends” by Richard Lederer & Stan Kegel (©2007)
