Christine over at Stine Writing is our hostess for this terrific photoprompt challenge.

It was Tuesday and bike night, a chance for all bikers to show off their wheels and meet up with their counterparts from other districts.
They came for miles, and the gleam of chrome was blinding, such was the pride they took in their machines.
The roar of over two hundred engines was deafening, but there was never any trouble, just a ton of respect and admiration.
Men and women turned up in leathers, boots and crash helmets, some even having specialised additions to their metallic steeds for some precious cargo.
A group of canines were gathered round the burger bar waiting patiently for tidbits to drop whilst their owners supped coffee and non drivers had a beer.
A rather scruffy terrier turned to an equally scruffy jack russell and said
‘Sometimes I think Fred takes his job as Top Dog too seriously.’

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Fred is one cool “cat”!

    • Ha! Tuesdays was always Bike Night on the quay, and they had some fantastic machines.
      One really huge guy offered to swap his Harley for Maggie. She was only a pup, but he was quite besotted with her.

  4. Hahaha! You think he’s too serious! Lol!
