Thanksgiving Ride At Charlie's Place (part 2)
I think it's only proper to begin this post with a picture of The D.O.M. club King and Queen - Dan and Leslie:
Let me explain why I’m spinning a Hula Hoop around my neck in the picture below. No, it’s not the effects of consuming alcohol. I’m actually doing a better job of spinning this Hula Hoop around my neck because of the alcohol. You see, earlier in the day we participated in something called a poker run. This is an event where the riders go from one stop to the next and pick up a poker card. After all five cards are picked up, the person with the best hand wins. The person with the worst hand also wins, but less than the best hand person.
This poker run was a lot of fun. And to make it even more fun, the riders had to perform a trick at four of the five stops in order to earn their card. Here is what we had to do: blow up a balloon until it popped, hit a paddle ball 12 times in a row (you know – a rubber ball attached to a wooden paddle with a rubber band), throw bean bags into a coffee cup, and you guessed it, spin a Hula Hoop around your waist (or your neck) five times in a row.
I don’t know about anyone else, but I had a heck of a time spinning that Hula Hoop during the poker run while I was sober. But I had no problem spinning that same Hula Hoop after I had a few. So here I am at the camp fire spinning that hoop ‘round and ‘round:
We'll see you for round 3 of this series in a few days. Thanks for stopping by.
