I would guess you be "politely" asked to remove it.

An excerpt from William Least Heat-Moon's River-Horse;

I told Pilotis of my visit there a year earlier when, at my late father's request, I looked in on his elderly colleague Miss so-and-so whose quiet elegance time had diminished but not erased, now living alone, rarely leaving her house, a place desperate for light and fresh air. She set out a pot of thin tea and limber Saltines and was pleased with the company, but whenever our conversation paused, from apparent habit she would lift the receiver of her rotary-dial phone, although it hadn't rung, and hold it gingerly to her ear for several moments, then say softly, "Hello?" Waiting, then, "Anyone there?" Perhaps noticing my quizzical look after the fourth pickup, she said to me, "Just checking." I nodded, and she added, "It doesn't ring often, so maybe the bell doesn't always work." She mentioned Mr. Such-and-such whom my father had to give a pink slip years ago: "Yes," she said, "he joined the Silent Majority." I said, I had no idea he, of all people, had turned religious. She: "He didn't turn religious, he died." I see. "Yes, liquor finally took him." How old was he? "Ninety-seven." When I got up to leave, I mentioned my plans for crossing the country by water, and she asked if I would go through Canada, and I said no, and she: "Yes, that's probably good. When I think of Canada, nothing comes to mind."

The best ones usually don't. I hope nothing bad happened.

Richard has pnuemonia, Carol spent the day in Chapel Hill with him. I am on-call, so had to stay kind of close to work.

Thanks, he's back home with antibiotics, Carol rolled in after 2300 last night.

Don't want to be a whiner, stuff bubbles to the top sometimes...

Anybody hear whining? I sure as hell didn't.

It's good to hear that they didn't think it was serious enough to admit him.

Finally, a ride longer than to work and back.

Carol and stole a weekend and went to the Old's Cool rally up at Cruso. We had needed to get out on the wing to see how it was going to be for traveling. I am disappointed with the luggage capacity.

We stopped in Ruth for lunch, there's pretty decent grub here, and plenty big servings, even without the bread.



We stopped by the Meltdown in Hendersonville and saw some of our regular crowd there, even got a new t-shirt from the boys at MotoVicious. Took no pics, lazy bums.

From there we eased on up to the Blue Ridge Motorcycle Campground at Cruso. I like going to the small gatherings, I always seem to get more one-on-one time with folks than I do at the big rallies. No pics there, either.
