Wordless Wednesday




It's 7 minutes, but just look at the first minute or so - awesome.

Okay, I could ONLY watch for a few because once he started jumping off the ledges with his bicycle, I started feeling sick. Seriously, that's dangerous!!! Love the cartoon! We're going to get pumpkins this weekend and I'll be thinking of Maxine! Enjoy your Wednesday!

After watching that Scot on the bike, it made me realize how the Scots won Bannockburn! They were outnumbered by more than half, and the routed the enemy. That was one amazing bike ride! It took heart and guts.

Ginny said...

I HAD to watch the whole thing, amazing! He had to have done that before, or known the terrain very well. To have done all that so quickly and self assured. Some of the things were downright very dangerous. Can't wait to show Phil! I LOVED the first song!!! I'm going to look it up.

Rhonda said...

(my first comment didn't go through!! trying again...)

Just watched the video--three times now. The kids had to see it too!! Then more wandered in and we had to watch again. :-) I wondered a couple of things... 1) was his bike part goat? Our goats used to do those same kind of crazy stunts. 2) did he ever miscalculate and spend the next couple of hours singing soprano? ;-) I figure that his legs must be extremely strong!! Great skill and awesome video!! My 7yo son was inspired!!

Thanks for coming by my blog and following!! I'll be sure to check out the blog link you sent me. It was nice to "meet" you and I look forward to getting to know you better!!
Blessings!
Kris

The Boston Lady said...

I love that video! Had to watch it all. Somewhere that boy's mom is grateful she made him wear a helmet when he first learned to ride a bike! Ann

Janie Fox said...

Clint said...

Sweet Tea said...

NOOOOOO! The biker made it looks so easy.
Beautiful scenery too and I LOVED the music.
Thanks for sharing this.

FishHawk said...

Thanks!

Ann said...

Jerry sent me that video too. I would seriously hurt myself trying that stuff.

Sharon said...

UNBELIEVABLE! I just watched the entire video. I think that guy has made some pact with God - because he defies gravity! What he does with that bike is really amazing. I loved the scenery, too.

I guess it really IS possible to do just about anything if you TRY. And if at first you don't succeed, try, try again...(and maybe a few times more...)
