Shriners Toy Run 2019 by Valgal

Well this year’s Shriners Toy Run, I would say, was a success….  Over 600 motorcycles and lots of cages coming to Space Coast Harley to drop toys for our kids was an awesome sight to see… No matter what, the kids come first…

The bands were awesome and the food was plentiful… FREE BEER TOO! Gotta love when Shriners are helping!

Keith Kormann and his boys from Bad Influence Kustoms had a bike show… Awesome Indian was chosen by me to be the winner… It was different from any other, Beautiful bike, Congrats. Ralph Robinson…

Keep the rubber on the road and I hope you enjoy these photos because we sure did have a BLAST taking them…

Please ride safe and ENJOY Christmas…

BAD APPLE RAT RODS by Miserable George

Saturday, Nov. 30, 2019 was just about a perfect day weather-wise, so, ValGal and I motored up to the old Iron Horse Bar in Ormond Beach, for the Bad Apple Rat Rod Show. It started around 3PM, so many of the entries at the Turkey Rod Run in Daytona, motored up to Bad Apple after THEIR showing in Daytona. Two good shows in one afternoon for the car people…!!! Nice crowd there enjoyed a live band, food, the fabulous Iron Horse bars, easy parking right next door, and of course…babes…!!! Lots of good looking bikes there too, and an antique fire engine parked out front. It’s always a blast too, to venture up on the over-head walk-way to check out the grounds. Long about late afternoon, this old boy got tired from all the walking, so, we left, and missed the judging…sorry. Old age is a real bummer!!! BUT, it was a good day all around.

Hey, thank a VET today, and, stand up for your country…!!!

CRITTER RUN 2019 by Miserable George

The weather forecast for Nov. 24, 2019, was not TOO favorable…at least not in the morning, however, after some early showers, the sky DID turn mostly blue, and, the run was on!! Most of the 131 sign-ins were at the last minute, but, we squeaked them in. Many brought pet food, and other necessities. There was cake and goodies  in the front office, and a lovely little lady-Mac- was out front selling T-shirts. We missed our Traffic Lady, Patches, this year…she was side-lined with some health issues, BUT, she promises to return next time!! The run ended at H&D Roadhouse on SR 520 on Merritt Island, where the staff had some very tasty food waiting, plus the usual array of cold stuff to wash the dust away…!!! All of the run winners donated their money winnings back to the Humane Society…very generous indeed…!! The live entertainment consisted of “Jam Bands”, which got the job done very nicely. There were several items up for auction as well, which brought in a tidy sum to aid the animals..!!! I’d say it was a very enjoyable day all around. Thanks to Harry, Debbie, and Tayla, and  the crew, and the Humane Society reps for a very pleasant day.

Thank a Vet today, and, God Bless America…!!

WARM-FULL-SAFE by Miserable George

After weeks of 80 plus temps, Warm-Full-Safe-2019, got blasted with cold, wet, and miserable weather…however, that did not seem to deter the large group of riders who roared into Legion Post #1 on Nov. 17, 2019.

Hot food and warm space heaters helped deter the cold, although, many riders preferred COLD refreshment!!! There was an auction and a motorcycle raffle to try your luck, plus a 50/50 drawing, AND, the Henderson Bros. Band…and yes, people were dancing!!!

All proceeds went to the National Veterans Homeless Support organization, to help provide a pleasant Christmas for homeless Vets. This was the 10th. year for this event, and, despite the nasty weather, I’d say was a success!!

Folks, we just cannot do enough for our Veterans, because, without them, we may not even be here…!!

GOD BLESS them all..!

Stand up for your country, thank a vet., and stay safe…

Lake Poinsette Trump Rally by Valgal and Miserable George

The Lake Poinsette Trump Rally was a great success today…We patriots got together like the brothers and sisters we are to celebrate our faith in our President… Good food, great music and a good time was had for sure… I felt comfortable wearing my red Trump hat here!

I know some of you will not agree with us but that is OK… Really, it is OK to agree to disagree and still be friends.

ENJOY

ROSCOE’S CHILI CHALLENGE…2019 by Miserable George

 My friend, Jay and I, rolled into Roscoe’s Chili Challenge on Thursday, Nov. 7, 2019, anticipating a crazy, action filled week-end, and, that’s exactly what we got!! It was the biggest “first day” crowd ever! Weather was good, however they did expect a cold front on Friday with possible showers, which we got Friday night. Most of the vendors were set up and doing business to the beat of live bands now performing almost non-stop, getting the growing crowd into a party mood!! As always, the body painters were busy the entire week-end, doing their usual fabulous work. A group of Vietnam Vets performed a “support tactic” that really grabbed me and many others as well. It’s because of men such as those, that we are all here today…GOD BLESS them, always. Opening ceremonies honored all branches of the Armed Forces, the National Anthem, Taps, the unfurling of a brand new American flag, as well as several patriotic songs….and, NO ONE “took a knee”…!!  Saturday started out with a corn-hole tourney, and across the way…CHILI was now being brewed…ahhh, what an aroma!! Next came the Outhouse Nationals, the burn-out pit, mini-bike racing, and a bike show…all leading up to sampling of the now-ready CHILI!!! AND…Jennie finally got me my de-caf coffee!! What a darling she was!!! More live music, then, trophy and awards presentations!! Famed MC, Pogo, had the ladies all fired up to the delight of the crowd, and, they even got Roscoe up on stage to give him a hand. The usual huge Sat. night crowd took over in front of the main stage, and, the PARTY was ON!!! I wanna thank Roscoe, David, Steve, (and Steve), and all the folks who helped make the Chili Challenge another fabulous success. If I forgot anyone, (or anything), I certainly do apologize. Thanks JAY for the loan of a huge tent, and all the help you gave me. Hope to see you all next year…
