After the Glory fades and the fame is gone

   Well all week I have been hearing comments about the "Night Rider" or more specifically referring to the News Paper article about my winter and night riding in last Sunday's News Paper. Geeepers, I mean I get to work and there is an announcement over the intercom. "ATTENTION, ATTENTION, THE NIGHT RIDER IS IN THE BUILDING AND WILL BE SIGNING AUTOGRAPHS FROM 9:00 TO 10;00 O'CLOCK." I received some letters from people I don't know. Some letters from people I do know and a good bunch of humored ribbing.
This was my "15 minutes of fame"


   But the fame has fastly  fizzled  So I have been sitting here with my little bear buddies thinking about this, sadly realizing the reality of being a 'has been' 




  So I have made a very big decision, and I am going to be Thee NIGHT RIDER. The new caped super hero. I will ride the alleys and streets at night protecting the world from crime and crooks.





My trusty dog Pitty will be my side kick and partner is crime prevention
There now only you know. Tomorrow and Sunday I will just be Dave the FatTire bicyclist and ride the snow.

Have a good day

You need to attach a sidecar to the bike now for your sidekick to ride in!
