One of the things my fellow Rotarians remember about me is that I used to ride a motor scooter to the meetings and all over town and much of the county, in fact.
"Still have your scooter?" is a question I am asked from time to time. I can never tell if it's asked out of curiosity, derision or envy.
Yes, I still have it but when I started working out of the county several years ago, it stayed in the garage. Occasionally, like twice in the past eight years, I would start it up and go for a spin down our county road.
I remember the last time I spoke with Jim Dressler, a retired newspaper editor who was so good to me.
"You had a lot of fun on that scooter, didn't you?" he asked.
