A Pirate Life
“A Pirate life for me…” Ah, yes, it is Pirate Weekend in Palmyra. The village is full of people saying, “Arrrr”, and wearing eyepatches. This is one of my favorite activities and traditions in Palmyra.
I love our small town and this is one of the many things I love about it. It is simply a fun weekend that started last night with the movie Goonies being shown in the park.
The bed races are my favorite. I was a little disappointed that there were only two entrants this year.
The Stormin’ Mormons met with some trouble when they blew a tire. They were moving so fast you could smell the rubber burning (I’m not foolin’).
By the way, I’m available as a consulting-engineer for future bed makers. When it comes to wheels this former bike-builder/mechanic knows a few things that can help your bed get the edge on the competition. There will be a catch. Your bed will have to bear some sponsorship logos. Oh, and just because I provide you with building advice, I’m not responsible for the execute of the plans or your race-day performance.
It was a fun day, and if you’d like to see all of the pictures, you can check them out at www.dbwalton.com and use the password ahoymate (all lowercase, no space).
