Red Dog and Me
This is an on-going dialog between me and a certain motor scooter, namely a 2009 Piaggio MP3 500 that came to live with me in October of 2009. I've named the scooter Red Dog and as yet have not determined its gender. In the past when I've named boats, bikes, and other like characters I've thought of them as feminine due to their behavior characteristics. Red Dog I'm not so sure about...we'll see. Update: OK, Red Dog's a girl...with an attitude

Jan 18, 2010 The Uni-Go is here!
I hate calls when it's still dark outside, they're always bad news, someone died or your nephew stacked up your car, etc. This was different, it was the shipping company advising me they'd be delivering the UniGo beastie in a couple of hours and could they get their semi up our driveway? Of course they could given enough time but rather than mess with that I agreed to meet them at the nearest landmark, the Wildlife Safari Game Park up the road a few hundred yards. Living next to them is like living in Jurassic Park but I won't go there just now, suffice to say it's interesting.
During all this commotion the main fluorescent lights in the barn went south so I spent a considerable amount of time messing around trying to fix it with no real success. The end result of all this was after doing a minimal alignment of the trailer to the bike I decided to pitch it in for the day and go get well, i.e., have a very large G&T, set a fire in the fireplace and maybe watch a really bad movie or two.
Tomorrow is truly another day…
