And who is this Harley?  Click here.

As to the small sixth boro contingent of Harley, I miss the bow puddings I first associated them with more than half a decade ago.

Kyle, again . . . many thanks.

Unrelated:  my mission today is to see if the mermaid parade brings any tugboats;  of course, I’m likely to get distracted.  See you there, maybe?

Here’s a photo taken from Pegasus in July 2012, showing the entire Harley fleet in New York that night.  HMS Justice has been around since also, although I’ve not seen her in a while.
