“Put away childish things

Uncategorized 0 Comments

yet keep the childlike wonder.
Though dreams be rent asunder
our wishes still have wings.”

The bike is away for some TLC then winter storage.
The journey to put away my childish things took a couple of days.

Leaving Goderich, I was caught up in chat.
That is the huge benefit of a motorcycle.
Chat one was with Jo-Jo who spent most of his life blowing stuff up. Jealous am I. Great stories. I could have stayed for longer, but had to checkout by 11am. ‎So moved the bike to the front door, for easier loading.
Chat two was after checking out. Jay a new rider to the BMW family, had stories and enjoyed mine. Luckily Jay had to reach Madoc‎, or the long chat would have been longer!

Though a short ride, I arrived in Stratford too late to catch a play. But I would not change a thing. I was hugely entertained 🙂

A stop at Black Swan to catchup with Greg. Rangers are having a difficult season, but still way better than Leicester‘s. Departed with a couple of cans for “Ron”.
Checked into my motel.
Brought supper home.
An early night.

Next day.
A final ride.
Check-in to my new/old home.
Unload the bike.
Vote in the municipal elections.
Take the bike to Budd’s.


And that, as they say, is that.
Will be little to blog about for a while.

Put away childish things? Done that.

Yet keep the childlike wonder?‎ Doing that. Am going to panto this Christmas……………
