I've been watching test cricket these last few days, with New Zealand touring England. The first test was at Lord's cricket stadium and the camera would often pan the medium-sized crowd that had gathered to watch the match. Many of them had bottles of iced champagne they were consuming prior to a picnic-style lunch, others were drinking beer from bottles and glasses, and at least one fellow had a steel stirrup cup, likely with Pimm's No. 1 in it.

New Zealand performed admirably well, but England managed to sustain a resistance -- the match was drawn because after five days of play, and one day lost to rain, the time was up. NZ was leading the score by quite a lot, but those are the breaks. NZ opening batsman Devon Conway, a debut test player at Lord's, scored a double century, 200 runs, broke various records, and batted from the start of the first innings until the end. Spectacular cricket indeed!

I wonder if "motorcycle" was deliberately misspelt as part of a brand name. The one ancient Indian motorcycle I had some experience with had a stick shift for changing gears!

Apparently they are still making the bikes:

What a great way to spend a weekend. Does anyone still go out camping in a tent. The wife and I do, but rarely these days. When we get friends involved in the effort, they always want to take their travel trailer. Alas, it is just not the same! :(;)

I'm getting the travel trailer. A shower before bed, at my age, is no longer a luxury. After all, deer season is two weeks long.
