I have a few different routes I take across the twin city to work. The majority of the streets are littered with cracks, bumps and potholes. I've memorized where they are and zig, zag, and carve around them. I must look like a pinball going down the road. Occasionally I'll "miss" and get a firm reminder that I don't have rear suspension. Our riding days are numbered here in the central IL tundra. Enjoy it while you can. .
"So this one year at..." The Backyard Bike Builders meet in Muskegon, MI Derek @miller_custom_creations caught a duck at the campground and thought it'd be funny to put it in Tony's tent, since he went to bed early...well "early" by The Flatlanders standards...and it was...it was funny as hell!!! Since then Tony has embraced his duck fetish and asked me to create a So'full duck. He's been very patient and the right pieces finally presented themselves. This is not what I originally had in mind, but it seems fitting that a duck "fleeing the scene" makes sense. There's still a lot to add in detail...like maybe shorten that giant Perry the Platypus bill...but I like the direction this has taken and I hope Tony does.
I was given this plaster #ratfink statue as a gift from Mrs. Mary Gard. It was given to her and her husband Richard as a gift from #bigdaddy#edroth himself. Ed used to stay with them when he visited Casey, IL for the Shriners Parade...at Richard's suggestion. The only compensation Ed required was the plane ticket and ice cream.
Mary it was great visiting with you, I look forward to our next encounter. Thanks again for all the cool stuff! I dig it!!!

RIP Mr. Gard
