For years I steered clear of the Sturgis Motocycle Rally  http://www.sturgismotorcyclerally.com  held annually in Sturgis, South Dakota during the first week in August.  Too many people and too much noise.  So imagine my surprise when friends Pastor Anne & David asked me to join them for a trip to the land of black leather and Harleys.  They we were, wandering between tatoo parlors, street shows, and the endless stream of motorcycles down main street.  We thought we would have a hard time finding a place to park but the nice thing is that the churches and other groups rent out their parking lots so we found a spot a couple of blocks right off the main drag.  The churches and other business groups also put on pancake & BarBQ feeds as a fundraising project and they do pretty well. Rally paraphrenalia and displays of flesh were everywhere.  The three of us enjoyed the afternoon and made it home without a tatoo or body piercing.

I’m so glad you were able to be such a good influence and keep Pastor Anne and David from succumbing to “body art”.
