She taught in several county schools in the area before becoming principle of the grade school in this area. I'm not at liberty to give too many more clues, cause I don't want it to be too easy!

Those are the Heidenau K60's. I have liked them a lot.. These have about 6K miles, mostly road, and have plenty of tread left. I've been suprised at how well they stick on pavement. I can't give a thorough review for off-road, but I do like them better than the stock tires in gravel.

As for the tag, I havnen't had the time to figure out where it is, or go get it...

Does your rear have that solid rib down the middle? I've heard several people complain about that causing trouble on uneven surfaces or it following road imperfections. I went with full knobbies this time, but may try those next time.

new tag

Continuing on the small cemetery theme:







I'm 99% certain this is the southernmost cemetery in its county. The road this gate is on may not be safe to stop on (pretty busy), so if you don't feel safe pulling off there you can post a photo of a different side of the place.

That one is at least as dangerous as some of the downtown tags, maybe more so!

Yesterday would have been pretty safe to go there, aside from the little bit of rain we got
