This impressive display, trailer & truck belongs to a member of the Dallas PGR. He tolled the bell, every 30 seconds or so, from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. and then again over at the cemetery
We started gathering at the funeral home at 1 p-.m. with the services scheduled to start at 2 p.m. Barbara is on the phone. Angela(by trike) and Jody (brown leather) talk with other PGR members..
Barbara's son, P.J. arrived on this 1952 Triumph. That is Barbara in the middle and Angela to her left. Angela rides the big yellow trike. I have to say, P.J.'s Triumph leaked more than my old 73 AMF Sportster, and those of you who made the same mistake and bought an AMF Harley like I did, know what I am talkin about..
Here is The Bell with the 10 Commandments. It is an impressive display and when the bell is tolled, you can hear it from quite a distance...
Another view 0f the truck, trailer, and bikes
