Before going on today's ride with the guys, I decided to ride in to Matter Park Gardens, here in Marion, Indiana, and take some pictures of the flowers. The Garden is very pretty after all the work they have done on it over the last several years. The entrance:

First thing you see are pots of petunias and impatiens:

And beds of pretty flowers:

There is a waterfall on the west side of the Garden:

And, plenty of Koi in the pond below the water fall:

In the center of the Garden is a large fountain:

And "Knock Out Roses" galore:

There's much more in the Garden..a gazebo, statues of children, etc. It's really nice.

I rode to our regular meeting place, Gaberial's, and six of us showed up to day. John Nave, Jerry Cole, Charlie Thomas, Larry Burke, Merle Combs, and Larry Davis. I wanted to ride down to Blountsville, Indiana, so Merle led us down to Gaston for lunch. After lunch, we rode down to Blounstville, which is about 10 miles south of Muncie, just off US35. I was looking for an 1812 War memorial that was suppose to be in the Blountsville Cemetery. The memorial is suppose to have my Great Great Grandfather's name on it (Peter Davis). We looked and looked, and never found the memorial. I'll do some more research on it, and maybe go back down there by myself. It was too hot to do more looking (about 90 degrees), so we quit, and took Charlie to Losantville so he could buy some gas. We rode west on IN 36 to IN 109, and then north on IN 109&9 to Anderson Power Sports. Merle and Billy stopped off there, and the rest of us rode on home.

I rode 137 hot miles:
