Gettin' Our Kicks: Chapter 27 – Day 21 Abilene to Fredericksburg

June 25, 2015

I slept in a little bit today. Judith was up at her usual 6:00 AM, but I stayed in bed until 8:00. After coffee, a shower and breakfast I got my act together and packed and loaded up my bike. Judith was way ahead of me.

We went to a gas station down the street to fill up. I checked the oil in both bikes and they both needed about a half a liter each. I had a full liter with me so that was now empty. Judith’s chain needed to be lubed and I pulled out the chain lube spray can – empty. Oh yeah, I said, I meant to buy some a few days ago.

Once again luck was on our side. There was a Harley-Davidson, Honda, Suzuki dealer a half a block away. Now this actually seemed mighty strange to me. It is not often you would see a Harley dealer with other brands as well. Got a spare liter of oil and some chain lube, and then lubed Judith’s chain. So, about 11:15 or so we were on the road.

Harley-Davidson, Honda and Suzuki - all under one roof.

And a shade tree.
 We stopped in this nice town of Brady for a lunch break. It looked like the town is at a cross roads for several highways and all the traffic goes through the center of town, and past a nice plaza with an old WWII (or WWI) cannon in front of the city hall, grass and a whole bunch of Pecan trees. There was a bench under a big Pecan tree with our name on it, so was just sat right down and had an apple, some cheese, chips and water and watched the traffic go by. It was down right pleasant.

This was our spot!
We knew it as our spot because right across the street was "D and J's"

Typical old town - surrounding the plaza were some old business'. In the Samuel Building, est. 1935, were law offices and insurance. Next door, to the left (right side in the picture) was the Taxidermy Store.
The cross roads at the city plaza.

After our lunch break we continued on to Fredericksburg.
