    a lap around the building, people parked in the grass and anywhere they can find a spot

    i pulled up next to the patio, kickstand down

    i wondered in, place is packed

    bands rocking, i grab a empty stood at the bar

    i'm looking over the menu

    and i think is that the star spangled banner

    i look up, then stand up and put my hand over my heart

    60 something miles later, i gassed up

    now another pet peeve with the chief

    before luies the tire pressure light had came on i didn't worry about it (well i did but i kept going)

    checked the tires there they were good

    now i'm buzzing down the road with cruise sat at 80 something

    the light comes on and it says front tires low, i wasn't worried

    till the light says 40, 38, 36, 34, 32 i decided i better pull over

    as i was rolling to a stop in the emergency lane, it bumps back up to 42psi

    :baldy

    stopped off at a store about kings mt

    usaully i shop for the cheapest hotel, but tonight i asked the clerk if any of these hotels had a bar

    she said theres a bar in the back of this building, emm

    i ride around back some bikes out front some folks with patches standing around

    thought this should be intresting, i parked and walked in

    pretty tame, listening to karaoke

    it wasn't good

    there was a old dude helping an even older lady up to the stage

    2 little bitty steps at a time

    wondering what she'd sing when she finally got up there

    she sat down and belted out wine, beer, whisky

    :lol3

    i'm not gonna try to tell ya it was good but it was a pleasure to see and hear


    i left, some of the bikes were gone

    i rode tru the parking lot, across the grass, wishing the chief didn't have such high and wide bars, and checked into a hotel for the night

    Funny thing... I'm my youth, I attended ORI... Never graduated, but attended. That was back in the Old Days before ORNL took ORI over, which was before University of TN gained control, back when Carbide had a handle on running the old Manhattan Project research plants there in Oak Ridge (K25, Y12, and X10... All of which are still up and running, BTW. Yes, I am old...)
    I actually graduated from Oak Ridge High and was co-opting at ORNL-CARL then (Oak Ridge National Laborties-Campairitive Animal Research Laboratories) before going to ORI.
    And yes, I am probably the only person you know that glows in the dark....
    Yeah, looking at my life now, it didn't really pan out for me, but it always looks good a resume.
    Well, it used to look good.... Nowadays I'm just an asshole biker with a semi-interesting history that post in RedBud's trippin instead of the Journal of Medicine...
