I served over 700 seniors at the county fair today. Big smile
It was nice to be called young man by some of these fine people.

Maybe fifty asked how much does this cost. I was pleased to say, "Free."

About 100 kids got in line too and their adults shyly asked "Is this OK?" Well sure it was, as soon as it's all gone I get to go home. LOL

15 three gallon tubs. eight cans of whipped cream six bottles of Hershey chocolate and caramel.
nut and sprinkle bags I didn't count.

Next I do a four hour duty bar tending for the fund raising for the fair board. There has not been federal or state support in over twelve years.

Last year I had 356 dollars in my tip jar in four hours that all went to disabled youth, I also had five phone numbers in there and two were from women !! I think it's because I'm a six count poorer not a four count. LOL

Be safe out there people.

Wish it was mine. Saw it and talked to the owner. He was returning from a concourse show. It only had around 800 miles on the clock as I recall.


My bike is a 1981 and has 36,000 miles on it.

Not sure of the date on the Norton but it is a late model as Peter Laidler pointed out to me. This one shifts on the wrong side and has electric starter. A man of details he said, "The starter is made in India and still needs a prod on the kick lever to bring his 850 to life."

In my wasted youth I worked in several Norton shops and have always had an admiration for the big twins.

But I digress the bikes have changed and left me behind.

They can all keep their modern bikes, I have no interest in them after 1970.
