I'm just glad I didn't have to witness your cure for a broken ankle.

My first thought after hearing that KS was (mostly) alright was, "Wonder if he put the tag out before he crashed?"

I wasn't going to be the first to admit it. It may have taken longer for me to think that since my first info was the bike and KS laying in the road - I didn't want to read on for a minute or two.

That was a frightening picture. Had I not happened to text BW on Saturday and get the reply "nope, KS just crashed, bike totalled, KS more or less in one piece" I would have had the same feeling.

Surrogate Tag Placement for Kingsize...



Usually the gate is open, but they appear to be in the process of putting up Christmas lights and the garland is strung across the gate. So just step over the low wrought iron fence...

Badge on the gate:


And ACE is hiding here... Go straight in from the gate and at the base of the hedge, there is a lone Oak Tree sprig sticking out. I shoved Ace up in the hedge, right at that Oak sprig...

The town derived its name from a nickname of a US president and originally settled around 1860.
