So, last Wednesday I started up to Columbus around 2000 to pick my son Zach up at the airport. ON Rt. 33 just off my home road, I noticed this great sunset and just had to take a shot. Zach came in around 2230 and we burned it back to the county so we could get some sleep and hit Burr Oak Lake on Thursday with my pal Jerry, my nephew Montana and Zach and Izze.
We got to the marina about 1000 just in time to snag a pontoon boat.
There was some rain coming according to the radar, our luck was holding.
Burr Oak is one of those CCC projects… used to be a reservoir… now it’s just a big, beautiful lake for all to enjoy.
Good times were abounding.
Saturday night was beautiful… very beautiful. A hot August Ohio night… with good music and lots of people. What a great show Roy and Livingston put on!
Before you know it, it was Sunday and student performance.
Tom and I did a little show for the folks Sunday night and Zach and I road our motorcycles home to Hillside Farm. This was his first night ride, so I took the lead. There was a scent in the air… it reminded me of when I was sixteen in Manila, P.I. and I would drive my Lambretta at night. Through the hot, muggy night, the smell of copra would wrap us in it’s sweet aroma. It was like a window time for me. Maybe I was the only rider who got to smell that tropical smell… who knows.
For a very brief moment, I was sixteen again. Nice… that doesn’t happen often.
Today, a half a day of camp and then Zach and I took a 70 mile ride and met the girls at the China Panda in Athens for dinner… then a ride home.
Good times… very good!
