The People You Meet on a Scooter Ride: Riding anywhere with Ken is a real pleasure. He is a good rider who leads exceptionally well. He chooses great sites to visit and finds interesting places along the way. But the best part about our rides is his infectious personality. He has never met a stranger. Everyone quickly becomes a friend. This happens everywhere we go. This guy was the Deputy County Clerk at the Jefferson County Courthouse in Monticello. He came out to tell us that we couldn't park there and that a deputy would be coming right behind him. But after a minute he and Ken were best friends. He offered a guided tour after he had to complete a task, but we missed him inside. A police officer at the Florida Supreme Courthouse in Tallahassee also told us we would have to move the scooters. But again he fell victim to Ken;s charm and turned out to be a nice fellow. We still had to move, but he told us where to park and that we could tour the building. But parking was a hastle and Tallahassee was our least favorite town today, so we headed to Crawfordville. This lovely woman, Petra, worked in the Crawfordville Chamber of Commerce, housed in the old Wakulla County Courthouse in Crawfordville. She turned out to be from a small town in Germany where Ken was stationed after he served in Vietnam. Her husband headed the team that restored the only wood frame courthouse in Florida. And this guy, Joe, gave us the most complete tour of any courthouse so far. He even let us take photos in the now unused holding cell. It makes for a great ride when it includes meeting so many nice people.
