Out & About

Saturday night, while Jason, his parents and I were enjoying the truck and tractor pull, one of our friends was being rushed to the ER.  He was stopped and someone rear-ended him.  However, he was driving a motorcycle.  Our friend ended up with a list of injuries.  So, while my ankle bothered me, I wasn’t in near the pain that he was… broken vertebra, broken ribs, broken nose, broken thumb, a serious gash to the head and a black eye.  Just a reminder to watch out for motorcyclists and to live each day…

For the record, the pull was at the Marion County Fair in Palmyra, Missouri.  And it was a great pull.  I even got a story idea out of it.

    I hope your friend recovers quickly – people need to be careful on the road and watch out for motorcycles, bicyclers and pedestrians. I have never been to a tractor pull but Palmyra is only about 2.5 hours away from me…lol


    • Yes, they do. My uncle and several of my friends ride and when something like this happens, it makes me feel ill. The kid that hit him said he never saw him.

      Oddly, Palmyra is about 2 1/2 hours away from my home town, but only about 40 minutes from where we camp (Mark Twain Lake) and they always put on a good pull. If you ever want to give it a shot, it’s a good one to check out. You can always come early and spend the day enjoying the history of Hannibal (about 20 minutes from Palmyra) or go to Quincy, IL and check out some of it’s history.
