Jan and I get out more in temperate weather. No yard work during 100 degree days; but those days are now past. The long dry spell will be ending soon since we got a half-inch of rain in time to help the second growing season. Both rain barrels are now full….
Our neighbor gave us a pepper plant in the Spring. We did not recognize them, but upon trying them out, we did an online search and think that they are hot ghost peppers.
We ride more these days, and while doing so we occasionally see wildlife.
Jan and I did a couple of rides recently, to Rogersville and Northview. We had a good time fighting the crosswinds that every once in a while became a headwind.
Coming back from R-ville, we met a pick-up and a flatbed trailer with field gates loaded onto it. As this truck passed around some other cyclists and went back into its proper lane, the gates came loose and fell from off of the flatbed, scattering across the road, about seven or eight of them. We had already passed by and none of the other cyclists were hurt, a fact for which we are thankful to God. We turned back and helped them reload the trailer. I waited until we were all done to take a picture.
A few days later we went out towards Strafford/Northview area. No, we did not do the hill at Northview. That will happen on a later ride.
