Yep, this is the look I get when I ask our little girl Stella, what she wants to do today. I’m pretty sure she is thinking, “seriously? We do the same thing every day”.
Well it’s day whatever, and we are all hoping for the world to get back to normal. It may take a bit, but we will get there. As you can see, we’ve been drinking a bit much, but I’m sure we aren’t much different than everyone else. Me (Jack McIntyre), well I’m in Philadelphia while Marilyn Stemp, she’s currently out at her home in the Buffalo Chip grounds. Philly is pretty much shut down, the view below is Market Street, there are usually so many cars & people out walking, you can’t even see the street color. I have my bike & RV all ready to roll, and I work in my home office every day at all kinds of crazy times, but it helps to pass the endless days. Marilyn sent me these pics yesterday from the Chip & Wall, approaching the Chip. Both are shut down tight. HOWEVER, soon this virus will pass and this place will be filled with visitors just roaring to let loose. Our European Reporter Herve’ Rebollo has said just about the same thing for Paris, where he lives. Herve’ sends me funny texts every few days, he’s in the same boat that we are over here, making it day to day. EXCEPT, he is in Paris and takes the most beautiful rides on his FXR all over France and the neighboring countries. He sent me this quiz last night, guessing he failed. I thuink this represents how his mind was slipping one day, lol:
And yes… being French, he has the necessities as well.So, I’ll let you all get back to whatever it is you were doing, if anything, but soon, we will gather at the Buffalo Chip for one hell of a party.
There are several events that I look forward to yearly, and the Philadelphia Veteran’s Day Parade is near tops on the list. With a mixture of hundreds of bikers, dignitaries, vets from WW2, Korea, Vietnam, Vets from all of the most recent wars, along with a supporting cast of military honor guards, drill teams, young future recruits, and so on, it’s just a great day of celebration.

It’s always Sunny in Philadelphia, right? Well for this terrific parade it was. Being a former Marine, I was able to move in and about the parade talking with WWII Marine Vets. Wow, one Marine was at the Battle of Tarawa in 1943 and still in Asia for the Battle of Iwo Jima in 1945. Just incredible, today’s youngsters couldn’t even imagine what that must have been like.

On this cold winters day, I thought I’d grab a shoot from my past, just a few years ago in Old Town Philadelphia during a beautiful summer day, Mayhem Cycles delivered this stunning restored 1950 Harley-Davidson Panhead. Enjoy the images.
