It Snowed Today ...

April 26 and this morning brought a cold winter wind that made the tender grass shiver. 
It snowed today but I still have stars in my eyes. Actually, I’ve got one star in my eye – the VStar. As my mother would have said, quoting her elders, “If all goes well and the crick don’t rise,” the VStar will come home on Friday.
(Thank God and Ken and Barb for heated clothing!)

"A Remedy" (It works for me!)

Last night there was revelry on the streets of Toronto as dozens of motorcycle enthusiasts joined in the 24th CVMG Old Fort York Lucas Push. It was my second time to the Push and once again I found myself immersed for the night in motorcycle bling, lore, talk and all round fun.
The event was started 24 years ago as, “A remedy for cabin fever suffered by bikers during the coldest, most depressing months of the year.” Last night was neither cold nor depressing in Toronto. Unlike home, the streets were refreshingly spring like and free of snow. Several motorcycles, other than the one being pushed were spotted on the streets, but it was definitely the one being pushed that turned heads of the unsuspecting passersby.
This year’s push was a 1949 BSA Bantam whose owner declared he likes it just the way it is and has no plans for restoration though it doesn’t actually start … but then, that was ideal for ‘The Push.’
