Austin “Leadfoot” Osborne won in kt100 at the Texas Lone Star Grand Prix last Sunday in Lockhart, Texas. Family from Houston and Austin turned out to cheer him on.
For my mother
born in Martindale, Texas, 1917
In all her seventy-five years, she never grew old.
The courage that my mother had
Went with her, and is with her still:
Rock from New England quarried;
Now granite in a granite hill.
The golden brooch my mother wore
She left behind for me to wear;
I have no thing I treasure more:
Yet, it is something I could spare.
Oh, if instead she’d left to me
The thing she took into the grave!-
That courage like a rock, which she
Has no more need of, and I have.
~ Edna St. Vincent Millay
