Which I (kind of) did last week.
The 2013 Florence Prison Run, sponsored by the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club, was a blast. It’s all about showing support for brothers inside the “big house” and a bunch of bikers did just that. I can’t say that I know anyone in the custody of the Federal Government at Florence, but did the run anyway.
Much like the HAMC Poker Run to celebrate American Legend Sonny Barger’s birthday in October, it was well organized, well executed (sorry…poor choice of words) and welcoming to non-patchholders. Like the previous big-boy ride that I wrote about here, I felt like I should have had a Wild Hogs patch on the back of my cut, though I’m not sure whether I’m the John Travolta or the Tim Allen character. I’d like to think I’m the Martin Lawrence character but know I’m probably not, even though the whole “stay-at-home-writer” thing rings true. My book was published in December though, so I’ve got that on him.
I am comfortable in the fact that I am not the William Macy character, despite my preference for Apple products.
Some pics from the ride…
This is really cool. In 1967, Walter Cronkite did a television presentation on what life would be like in the 21st Century. Sure, he missed mentioning Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest, but his writers did come up with a pretty spot-on vision of what life would be like…well…now.
Just tonight, I paid almost $4 a gallon for gas. Wonder if he saw that coming?
Over the weekend, was just thinking about picking up Season 5 to review, though it will be available On Demand starting February 11th.
Definitely check out this slideshow of 4 cast photos. I love the way the actors (Vincent Kartheiser, Elisabeth Moss and January Jones) are aging into the late sixties. Pete rockin’ the sideburns, Harry Crane heavying up on the frames. I was just reaching the age of reason during this period in the show’s timeline, and everywhere you look, there are things remembered.
