It really came as a pleasant surprise to me, when Ed showed up today at Rao’s on his beloved Scarabeo 250, recently overhauled at Apollo Scooters’ garage in Houston. Ed appeared stoked about having his scooter back; although he hasn’t quite had a chance to put all the Tupperware pieces back on the scoot so we will call it “half-naked”. “Actually, it seems to run a little stronger than before…”, Ed mentioned…
Happily scootin' again!!

The piercing, northwesterly gusts forced us to seek shelter and a warm, nourishing meal at Joe’s Pizza & Pasta. That creamy, chicken with artichoke and angel-hair pasta dish they called “Chicken Consentini” really hit the spot for me. Reinvigorated, we managed to ride all the way to Orange, even survived the 30-plus mile-per-hour crosswind at the top of Veteran’s Bridge.
Welcome back, “Scare Bear” Ed!–Lorenzo
