NO Scooter in the Sticks
Six hundred miles from home and the world seems a bit different. Alligators, live oaks, and birds I’ve not seen before. This is a No Scooter in the Sticks entry though. The Vespa is home resting while my daughter and I visit relatives in Georgetown, South Carolina.
The ride down did give me ideas of excellent rides--- the Blue Ridge Parkway being just one. I’ve seen lots of scooters down this way. More than I ever see in Pennsylvania.
Not much time to write and things to do but just wanted to say hello and give a brief update on my friend John. Surgeons put his knee and femur back together and repaired the damage to his face. They still have to repair his lower leg but the swelling is still an issue so that will wait a bit longer. He has been moved out of ICU and into a wing for special injuries so that’s a good sign. He’s in good spirits and everything is looking good.
