(nearly) Wordless Wednesday: Standy Guy

Who can explain Standy Guy?  Some can and won’t.  Some will and can’t.

Personally, I like to remain in the dark about it, though I’ve heard tell of a few stories.

But whether there is a good explanation for his talent of riding everywhere standing up, donning yellow slicker and red flying scarf in the winter, bare-chested with red flying scarf in other seasons, we all get a kick out of this local urban legend.

One day we’ll issue punch-cards for Standy Guy-sightings and it will become a tourist attraction to spot him, gaining you discounts at the local Cheese House or $$’s off a gallon of Maple Syrup somewhere.

All in the name of fun, and thank you, Standy Guy, for the free entertainment!

    1. Yes! The goggles, too! Guess I don’t really notice them so much! Used to think he was “too” much, but over the years I’ve sort of come to respect him for standing (!) by his eccentricity 🙂

  1. He could have no knee joints. He looks about as tall as I am and perhaps he can’t see through the windshield on the old Gold Wing. There might be a slash in the seat vinyl and the sponge bit is wet all year round. Perhaps he was taught how to ride by somebody with a sense of humour. He could have a bad back. He may just want to be a local hero. If so, he has got somebody in Ireland thinking about his antics.
    Go stand up guy!

    1. Love all of these! And maybe someday I’ll leak what I’ve heard here….but another very funny tidbit is that he’s packing heat under that yellow slicker – two pistols! Which is a little disturbing! But who knows…perhaps someday there’ll be an interview in our local paper or maybe I’ll interview him myself! Have a fantastic February, Conor, and thanks for visiting the farm!

  2. He is a legend. Coming from an Arlington born and raised resident I have to correct you on his title. He is widely known in his home town as “The Red Baron.” appropriately. We too have heard lots
