Whew, starting to pick up huh? usually does the second quarter.  Here's the poem i promised you. 

by Laughing Larry B 

The mark of the open road changes depending on 
who you chose to join but the colors are unmistakable.

a leather and a harley have built more legends 
than Disney and Doc Seuss combined. 

but Fonzie moved to the Hamptons with his son the doctor
and the Sons of Anarchy have moved on too. 

still the steel horse bings fantasy's to mind. 

neat huh? 

here are the book links:

see you next time.
