Morning ride to Kerrville, Luckenbach

Last weekend, I met Lee in Kerrville for some free breakfast (the Honda Sport Touring Association was meeting at the bike dealership there), and enjoyed some coffee and free donuts. I would have had breakfast tacos, but they didn't have any vegetarian ones. Oh well-- nothing like six donuts to get ones blood sugar level to a dangerous high. Afterwards, I rode on alone to Luckenbach. Here are a few of the photos I shot that morning:

Deep Purple--It's not just a band.

Buffalo in the Mist, soon to be a major motion picture.

Abandoned Barn and Windmill.

Iron Horse waits patiently while I pursue the perfect framing of the above shot.

This mailbox looked so forlorn I had to stop and tell it how well it symbolized the back roads of Texas. Bullet-ridden, and door hanging open like a tongue, it looked very tired.

Is this a "kitty box?"

Luckenbach signage.

The post office where ever'body is somebody.

I love this bike.

Not as much as I love this girl though.

El Low Quince

I generally just dash together some words and pictures when I post. Occasionally, I will spend several hours on a post, but that is extremely rare.

Therefore, I wonder about the methodology to generate this:

cash advance

Cash Advance Loans

Either undergrad work is nowadays less demanding, or I am more eloquent than I thought.
