Our Labor Day is finally over – except for a small girl sitting on a home made mobile chair running up and down the road.
Really. A mobile chair.
Someone has welded a frame work together to hold a battery and an electric motor, hooked up a sprocket and a fixed ration gear. Put the kitchen chair atop the frame work and off the kid goes.
I don’t know if the kid has a sense of empty gas tank or not. It doesn’t go fast, but it goes and you aren’t peddling.
One other note from the weekend before I let it go: I didn’t go to the village center for the activities this year. Didn’t care to. But I was outside when the tractor pull took place – a quarter mile away.
Those boys made those tractors scream. Howl even. Just listening it sounded like some of those engines were reaching six thousand RPM or bette . With minimal muffler those engines were in pain.
Now I’ll get away from the village for a bit.
RGIII seems to be hanging on with the Skins. I got to wondering if what I though I’d been seeing was or if I’d been mistaken.
An article from a sport writer helped me understand something I’d not considered. 16 million dollars if RG gets hurt – whether he plays again or no. Payable up front. And then there are the other years – 26 million.
And, the writer pointed out, there are other teams in the division that just might like to have the young fellow on their teams rather than have him play against them.
One of the things I came up with myself would be RG giving away the play book. There is, I believe, a period until the end of Oct that would render some points against free agency or a trade moot.
Still, I’m pessimistic about the season for the team.
