It looks like a go for the parade tomorrow. The trike is running(Thank you Jesus)and he is taking it in today to get an inspection sticker (he already has plates). We need to get the trailer out of the barn and get it decorated. I have made up lots of posters to put on the trike and the trailer.
God Bless our military that keep us safe.
Being a Christian isn't about religion. It's about a relationship with the One who made us. I'm so thankful to be one of His.
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13
Do not ask the Lord to guide your footstep, unless you are willing to move your feet.
God grant me the serenity to accept those I cannot change, to change the one I can, and the wisdom to know itís me.
Chuck, I am so very sorry to hear about your friend Fred. And in a motorcycle accident on his way to a guard function. Please pass our sympathies to his family from two members of the American Legion Riders.
I wish I could meet the Solitary Marine and shake his hand.
If you always do what you've always done, You'll always be who you've always been!!!!!!
"Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying "I will try again tomorrow!"

I will be riding in the Estacada, Oregon Veterans parade again this year. The "Lone Marine" who has saluted the Rolling Thunder riders in Washington DC for the past 6 years will be there. Also the Parade will be honoring my friend and fellow PGR rider Fred Brehoney who died on his way to a Mission 7 weeks ago. There is a Link for Fred in the website. Near the bottom of the Website is a viedo of the Lone Marine in DC. estacadaheroes.com/ProudToBeAnAmeric an .html

On real hot days, 95+ degrees, I will generally put on a "cool Vest" that is made for hot weather. It is made to soak in water to get charged up. It will last up to 3-4 hours. Really helps keep you cooled down. I will also ware a "cool collar: that is charged with water. It was great you were able to ride part of the parade. I know how hot you can get especially creeping along with a hot motor under you.
I'm fine today, D-Ann. I stopped in time to cool off before I got too bad. I took a cool shower once home, plus spent the rest of the day in the air conditioning. Hoo-ray for AC! I'll just remember to ride early in the morning before the heat peaks.
My grandson & I rode in our local parade today, but it started at noon, and was WAY too hot! I didn't even finish, but pulled off in the shade & got off the bike. My leg by the pipes has severe heat rash and I had to pour water over myself to cool off. The temp & humidity were both in the 90's, which was just too much for me on an EFI bike. My grandson threw out candy, though, and enjoyed that plus waving at all the spectators.
I had to miss parades this year. I generally ride in 4th of July parade with the Patriot Guard Riders (PGR) We get many request from various cities wanting us to ride. We also do parades on Veterans Day and Christmas. If you have not had a chance to ride in one you should give it a try.
