    Great turnout today for Mr. Plough's birthday celebration. Roughly 50 motorcycles from PGR and other groups joined some of his family members in a procession to his house. We followed a Round Rock PD car and a RRFD ladder truck to his house where we parked in the street, dismounted, and lead by his granddaughter sang him Happy Birthday.

    He seemed to enjoy it. We sure did!

    Thank you all who came out today for this fun mission.
