Back to the Rat..how about that..cars and rides
Woke up Saturday morning at 3am with mad craving for bacon and potatoes..Knew right then it was going to be one of those days, been working so hard I have not had the urge or desire to ride..that is sick..but was headed in to work again..Did the bacon thing and it helped but didn't cure the hunger..Headed to the shop with my normal Starbucks stop along the way..There it is a huge sign that I drive by everyday, Car Show June 13th..damn that's today..grab my two venti cups of blood thinner and head towards the shop..
About a mile down the road it starts, the little green man in my headed starts dropping hints..Car Show!!! Car Show!!!! I ignore his green ass for a few miles but then it starts me thinking..now this little green SOB can get me in shit..and got stuff I need to be doing but..Now the chant Ride is echoing through the empty halls between my ears..
I make it to the shop..been fighting the urge to flip a "U" for half an hour now..I pop the door and look around and sure enough all the wishful thinking I could muster didn't empty the boxes or stock the shelves..damn again..better get started...about 15 minutes into it enthusiasm was gone and I knew the little green dude had won again..I'm off to the wild blue..
So I dust off the shovel and roll to the show..small town fun and lot's of cool local rides..Had to share the purple coupe..color was to die for in real life..I would drive that Barney looking breast any day...
After cruising the show the green dude conned me into a few miles in the hills..some relax time in the saddle and some wind driven smiles..it felt so good I think the shelves can wait and another day in the winds is about to hit the books..back to beeing the Rat,,Ya how about that..Thanks green dude...
