Maybe I should save this for the banquet, but people need something to smile about now. Anyhow, I bought a garbage bag full of Frisbees and 8" plastic rings at a garage sale last summer for 3 bucks. I thought it would be a nice treat to toss out to the little kids during the parade. So me and another fella (Al Byerly) are cruising down the beach in the infamous RU21 during one of the parades. Al has Frisbees and plastic rings at the ready ... and there ain't a kid in sight.
But then out of nowhere 2 20 something guys appear riding those fat tire beach bikes. So Al tosses one of them a plastic ring. The guy catches it and is really proud of himself, guess he thinks it's like a Modi-Gra bead thing.
So then the other kid, not wanting to be out done by the competition, peddles his beach bike butt off to catch up with us some 1/2 mile down the beach. Al, being the good sport, perfectly tosses the 2nd plastic ring of the day. The guy catches it and looks at Al as if to say... "WTF is this?"
Al never missed a beat. He yells back to the bewildered bicyclist..." It's good for a lap dance at the Silhouette Club!" The kid was overjoyed!
I laughed, the RU21 shook and shuttered, Al had a great laugh, and we all wondered if those guys did try to cash those plastic rings in for a lap dance at the strip club??????
This is a true testament to the fun of vintage events; or that it doesn't take very much to make an old car and 2 old guys have a great time. But how did Al know about the lap dance anyway ????????
