Green Girl waited patiently outside parked besides one of the local constable’s rides. Sorry about that, eh?
They finally turned us loose and since I was the lead bike I rode off at my regular rate, which wasn’t fast but I soon found myself totally alone with no one in sight behind me. Maybe all the Harley guys parked somewhere.
Back at the motel I found time to catch up on the last three days blog postings so with this one I’ll be current. Tomorrow I think I may head towards Kentucky.
Post Script: Odd things sometimes happen…just as I was finishing up this posting I saw movement out of the corner of my eye. It was the largest spider I’ve seen since the late 50’s when I was in Japan. The most accurate estimate I can give of his size would be 2 ½” across his legs and he was moving like hell; ultimately running behind the drapes. I’m ordinarily fairly calm but I don’t like sharing my room with large spiders; especially when I’m about to go to bed.
Pulling the drapes out I saw him and he saw me and ran a few feet, further behind the drapes. I couldn’t think of anything big enough that I could kill him with and then I thought maybe I could spray him with something. The only things I have with me are my Foamy shaving soap and the foot & sneaker spray that I use daily on my boots. I opted for the latter and pulling the drapes aside I saw him hunkered down eyeballing me.
I gave it to him good, sprayed and sprayed and he didn’t like it one bit and tried to run off. No way was I going to let him get away so while he was reeling around under the influence of Tolnaftate (kills athlete’s foot and boot odors) I smacked him with one of my cycle boots. Actually I smacked him somewhere in the neighborhood of a hundred times so now there’s a lot of him spread out over a very large area. It should be very easy for housekeeping to vacuum him up.
I wonder if he had a mate....
