I was Riding Down such a Street when a car came Down a Side Street. It stopped at the sign and the Driver seeing nothing coming but my Bike started to go. I had to Stop in order to avoid getting hit by the car. J. K. Of Frank Avenue suggests a club to teach Bike riders the rules for the Benefit of the younger generation. I think it is a very Good idea but i also think it would be a Good idea for car Drivers to Brush up on their rules and regulations. That would Benefit All generations. Thanks for letting me air my. Opinion. L., Dekoven ave decent types Are fools enough to marry men who fling discretion to the winds. They Lead dissolute lives and then Are Brazen enough to expect to marry a girl who has respected virtue had will Power enough to resist temptation and sacrificed Good times in order to walk the straight and narrow path mapped out for her. My idea is if a Man expects those Virtues in the girl he marries he should have principle enough to Lead a life that will enable him to boast of them too.
