Gladys Gets Hosed

Yesterday's ride in the Valley ended in a much needed spring bath for Gladys. Breezy Blends Espresso hosted a charity carwash for the family of Lt. Bruce Ramsey in his memory. I peddled up behind a big sudsed-down black SUV, let down the kickstand, and announced, "She's next." While Gladys waited for her scrub down, I went over and talked to Mr. Darren Roller, my former neighbor. That guy has a heart as big as he is and just loves doing things for other people. I would have helped "fly the sign" but I wanted to record Gladys's spring baptismal. The young man did an excellent job sponging down my "ride." He uncovered words on her chain guard I never knew were there...even washed behind her fenders!

The carwash was well-attended. The event raised $2,277 for the Ramsey family. The Valley has good people in it. And Roller, you are one of the best. Thanks for all the good things you do for other folk!

  1. Glad to hear Gladys had a wash! I'm sure she needs it after all this riding! I'm sure the gentleman washing appreciated the break from the old F250's and Dodge Turbos. And yes, thank you Darren Roller, tough guy, for being a real man. There should be more like ya.
