        I found that today is a Memorial Motorcycle ride for Tyler Todd  a local  soldier from Plattsville who passed away while serving Canada in Afghanistan in 2010. This ride is in memory of him every year since then. Ride for Tyler Todd click HERE      
       Rob and I drove over to see this and with perfect riding weather was an amazing turn out today.

       It is an amazing site to see took about 8-9 minutes for them all to pass one place. Below is an 8 second video of the roar all the bikes passing by.

       The ride is about an hour and they all return here for a BBQ , Music and raffles. A wonderful fundraiser.

  1. Hi George and Suzie; It is nice to catch up here, I have been having a terrible time with my laptop and ended up taking it in for a new one and upgraded at the same time. Lenovo Edge 15 I do NOT recommend to anyone. Anyway, I just wanted to comment on the bike ride, when we had our motorcycle these were the types of days I enjoyed most. I loved riding in the heat! Take care!

    1. Thanks for stopping by Patsy, great to hear from you again.
      I gave up on windows many years ago, love my Mac.
      We don't have a Motorcycle anymore , but this sure would have been fun.

  3. What a great turnout. I'm having a real hard time finding good produce. You'd think it would be plentiful here.

    1. It was an awesome turnout.
      Most of our produce come from Georgia right now, soon will be local stuff here.
