New Year Brownies

At the first of last month I gave the December poem from Palmer Cox’s Brownie Year Book. I now give the next installment for your reading pleasure.


Throughout the year the Brownie Band                                                                                        For pleasure travels o’er the land:                                                                                                    In January, when the snow                                                                                                                Lies on the hills and valleys low,                                                                                                        And from the north the chilly breeze                                                                                                Comes whistling through the naked trees,                                                                                        Upon toboggans long they ride                                                                                                          For hours down the mountain side,                                                                                                  Until the broadening light of day                                                                                                      Compels them all to quit their play.

Stay happy,

A perspective on life and cycling in the Ozarks. I started serious cycling in 2008, after seeing my wife be on the bike for a few years. We have biked many places and hope to continue. I am no where near being a real good cyclist, but I have fun trying to improve. Who am I kidding? Me? Improve??
