    Thanks Walter, the Pirate one took some searching!

    THE NEXT 7
    We'll see how long this one lasts. :deal
    Your town or a neighboring town in 7 pictures.
    One pic must be the "Welcome to......" sign, so we know where it is.
    The remaining 6 "different" pics must be of any historically or architecturally
    significant building or structure/place that defines the town. And not 6 different houses.
    But if you use a house tell us what makes it worthy. (ie Geo Washington slept here, etc.)
    As not to just take 6 pics from different angles, your bike should move
    a least one block from the previous pic. No duplicates. The idea is to show
    us around of what you think is worthy. Be the tour guide, show us around
    and maybe we'll want to visit!!
    Please though, do not take any pictures of a strip mall, mall, shopping
    centers or big box stores. If that's all your town has, move.:lol3

    Anti-file is date & time stamp or a small pumpkin (baseball size) on bike somewhere.

    Thanks for grabbing my lame 7. It was an attempt to get folks out who wouldn't normally ride in cold weather.
    Would that be Wyoming, Delaware?


    sent from my dumb fone.....

    I thought it was a good 7. Got me to look up some local history, just couldnt quite put it together with my small rural towns.

    Does that mean only 1 VFW and 1 American Legion post rather than, for example, 7 of either or 3 of one and 4 of another?

    4) A recycling depot/station to celebrate America Recycles Day
    5) Something to celebrate World Peace Day
    6) Something spooky for Occult Day
    7) a picture from somewhere out of your state for Go For a Ride Day
