A Spring Observation


On these last couple of days of winter, I'd like to offer further proof that winter is on its way out. Yes indeed, the crotch rocket, the bane of all sane drivers, has been spotted again in Detroit. One day it's freezing and the only folks out are those driving vehicles with four wheels, and the next it's warm, almost summer-like and these guys have descended upon the city like a swarm of locusts.


Welcome back, guys. Gee I missed ya.

Thank you for your comment, Rudee!

Ahem... What's a crotch rocket? Lol sorry, I feel like a little ignoramus!

Btw, little Mary isn't here yet, and my SIL (and all of us!) Hope she arrives today, since it would have been her late grandma's bitrhday (my SIL's mom)

They scare me. I wish they could stay on their own dirt roads and off where I need to drive. I also don't care for the big semis because I can't see around them, and they just make me nervous.

Rudee said...

CT--ugh, that's an awfully long labor. I wish her well and I also wish her a swift delivery!

A crotch rocket is a fast thing with 2 wheels that people try to kill themselves on, otherwise known as a sports motorcycle. Is there really a need to go 200 miles per hour?

Rudee said...

Brenda, at least you can see the semis coming. The crotch rockets seem to come out of nowhere, or hell, take your pick.

Good news indeed for those needing organ transplants! (word verification "bling")

Ah, the joys of summer. Why is there always a downside?

The ones who ride around half naked make me scream inside ("Gravel rash! Degloving injury! Skin grafts!!!"). Maybe they also think skin is something they can do without?
