Playing with the Toys on Old Route 66

"You can get a lot farther with a kind word and a gun than a kind word alone."
Al Capone


Today I took the Goldwing out for a run along old route 66. It was really windy and as usual, no one around. So I took out my toy to play a bit. This weekend I am going to Juarez for a little visit, I will be packing, my camera that is.

A Man is Grounded.
My Life had stood -- a Loaded Gun --
In Corners -- till a Day
The Owner passed -- identified --
And carried Me away --


Carried Me Away
Hope the gun he holds
Will do what it is told

Swiftly, suddenly a burp is sounded.
A bullet, a gasp, a fall, a man is grounded.

The gun had done his work.
All with one little burp.


Route 66 Casino
That was my day of fun at old route 66.

For some reason this post and the pictures, make me think of a Marty Robbins song. I mean that in the best possible way.
