Stalled But Still Moving
It's been months since I've ridden the Vespa. Any adventure on the road occurs inside the comfortable confines of a Honda Odyssey van. Driving to Altoona, Pennsylvania today in the fog plucked chords of longing for being on the scooter. All I need do is repair the Vespa, brave the cold concrete floor of the garage and do a little work.
A little work; finding the time has been difficult. But the repairs are slowly rising up on my todo list.
Some things remain the same. Junior continues to insist on quality time in the world and I am inclined to try and deliver. This morning was nice as the temperature was already in the 40s when as we made our way through the park. There has been a lot of good riding weather this winter and I've missed pretty much all of it save for a few trips on my daughter's Yamaha Vino.
For now both the Vespa and Vino continue to quietly sip electricity from the Battery Tenders wondering what the hell has happened to me.
Soon though, soon...
Junior and I made the end of the day walk in State College, Pennsylvania. Calder Alley offers a nice, long stroll at night with a lot of things for me to look at with the camera and many fine aromas for Junior to consider behind the many bars and restaurants.
Just a quick note to let you know your RSS feeds aren't dead and neither am I. Just consumed with other more pressing matters at the moment.
This picture would look better if there was a Vespa in it.
