Maybe she is celebrating that Donnie is going to buy a Harley!

One of the captions is "Seeing families reunited. Borders are cruel."

I suspect that rules were bent that day, let's put it that-a-way.

Voni just sent this. It was an event they called Voices From Both Sides. I would call it a bit of a protest over the closing of the crossings, but that's just my contrary side talking.

I don't know if I could handle all of that power!




There is a bar/? across the Mississippi River in Helena, AR named "Horses and Hogs". I told my Harley riding friend that it was a proper name because they have about the same power and if you are going very far, you have to put them in a trailer!

That is awesome

It would be great to have something like that the length of the Rio Grande on a given date but the river is a bit dangerous in this area, it's not that shallow and has lots of undercurrents.

I shudder a bit thinking about how I used to go into the river with buddies when we were kids.

I didn't know. I was just curious that maybe I was missing something.

Agree totally.

Have you ever noticed the warning signs regarding alligators that they have near the river in downtown Reynosa?

Are there really 'gators in the Rio Grande?

It's all good, Ace! The cool thing about Mexico is that you don't need a reason for a big happy party, you just need the feeling for having one and the rest always takes care of itself.

Thanks Donnie! I read your reply to Mom and she was quite pleased, of course. And, yes, she's still a beautiful lady.

Can't wait for January!!

In June. Enroute to Veracruz and some excellent mountain riding during the day and seafood with stories in the evenings.

For now I'm gonna play in the dirt with the little bike then see about a Big Orange Thing down the road.
