Two Years of Riding - 100th Post

In this past week I celebrated two years of being a scooter rider and one year of having the motorcycle endorsement on my license.  And with these words I pen my 100th post here. To be honest, when I started writing "Scootin' da Valley" I didn't know if I'd have anything much to say beyond that hello to the world in my inaugural post.  I still don't know if there's a genuine purpose to my writing this blog but I enjoy writing and sharing my pictures from the road, and I appreciate having you folks stopping by from time to time to see what I'm doing.

 Bringing the Fly50 home - May 7, 2007

When I started here I saw myself as some humble, inexperienced hobbit to Steve's ("Scooter in the Sticks") Gandalf.  Luckily for me, not long after my start, Paul ("Scootin' Fool") was here too - my trusted companion hobbit from a nearby village.  This hobbit I'll remain, plodding along and hoping from one day to the next to do something to earn at least my meals on the journey.  It's an unassuming road I scoot down.  My thoughts and my sights are familiar ones, at least in form, to most of yours.  To jump to another storybook, I guess what I do here is a lot like Piglet hollering, "Me too!"  I'm just yelling to the world that I like my life, and that rolling around on my two little wheels is part of what I like about it.

I think that our blog community is full of writers with differing views of the world, and sometimes it changes our perspective to see things from another point of view.

I like to stop by and see how you are getting along
