Need a Bandaid?

His uttered oath of profanity doesn't surprise me much.  For some reason - be it right or wrong -  it seems consistent with motorcycles, bandannas and leather jackets.  Nevertheless, I turn around in my seat to see. Hubby Rob and I have stopped at a small coffee shop in downtown Colorado...
