Invasion of the Tipsy Santas On Bicycles

Green Santa, Tipsy Santas

Grinch Disguised as Santa, and his Tipsy Friends

Yesterday, December 3, 2016, I walked out of my graphic arts class in Milwaukee into the street only to encounter a fantastical vision of hundreds of Santas-drunk and on bicycles. And a couple grinches and elves too. While I can not answer the existential question of “Can there be more than one Santa Claus” I do know what I saw. And took photos to prove it. I believe that these Santas (and grinches and elves) were cycling from pub to pub in downtown Milwaukee. As you can see above, some were struggling to mount their bikes. Having stood in the street to photograph them, my only advice is to stay out of their way!


Cycling on the Natchez Trace Parkway in Mississippi, March 2015

Late March, 2015, we cycled along the Natchez Trace Parkway between Jackson and Natchez, Mississippi, in the company of our friends Steve and Wendy. The weather accommodated us with cloudy skis and temperatures in the upper 60s. Mid-day, we stopped for a fried chicken Sunday lunch at the famed Old Country Store (rumored to be the best fried chicken anywhere!) located just a mile or two off the Parkway.
