Last Great Day

Saturday may have been the last great day. I see nothing in the forecast but rain and chilly weather, but hope springs eternal and I'm sure things will improve. It's just hard to train for long rides when it rains all the time. Guess I should take up canoeing. I was in Iowa this week and came upon this cool bridge. Remember Bridges of Madison County? This is one of them, the Roseman Bridge. I also spotted this old green barn. Unusual color for an old barn. My favorite pic. of the week is the old building in Humeston, IA with colors that really pop and, as luck would have it, a darling stooped little lady shopper. This is rural America as I find it. Hope you enjoy the picts. and it will have been a good week.

Great Day

Today was a good day. One of the best days I've had this spring. This morning I cut the grass and trimmed the yard. I think it looks pretty nice for early in the year. I then went for a bike ride. Perfect temps in the 70's, cloudy, but windy and humid. God sprinkled on in Olathe and the ride south was into tough 30 mph headwinds. On the way home I had a big tailwind so with that at my back I rode down my favorite downhill - an 8% grade. Top speed - 48 mph, yeehaaw! I maybe could have gotten more, but I was passing cars on the right and the speed limit was 45 mph. After all the work I sat on the deck and had a refreshing beverage. The fun was not over, I still had more yard work to do, but there is always more of that. All in all, a great day.

Later, Bill
