Salesman: Let me show you the latest Rolls Royce.

Shawn: I have a bicycle.

Salesman; Does your bike have leather seats?

Shawn: Why yes, it does.

Salesman: Does your bike have a Rolls Royce Motor?

Shawn: I like to think so. Say, what mileage does a new Rolls get?

Salesman: If you have to ask, it’s not for you.

Shawn; Hmmm, same with a bike.

Salesman: I don’t think you are Rolls Royce material.

Shawn: How much for the winged thingy on the hood?


That’s more my size! Do they come with panniers?


I got all excited when I first saw Warwick Castle and took this picture.


I then asked a passing mom: “Say, is that Warwick Castle?

“No, that’s not Warwick castle. That’s a church. It’s down the street.”

So I saw it and took this pic.



Then I saw it and took this pic.



This however, is Warwick Castle. It was built by William the Conqueror in 1068. I wonder how he would feel if he knew his impregnable fortress was now an amusement park.

One thought on “Birmingham to Stratford-Upon-Avon

  1. I’ll put together a little video about my biking Rolls. But not till I have more daylight hours. It’s just to dark to ride safely after 4:00PM.

    I’m outdoors typing this in the English mist at a wifi hotspot at my campground. My breath comes out in puffs.

    Hearing how people talk is delightful, I’ll try to figure out a way to easily capture some of that.
