Wind has been the main companion this past week, but no complaints about Thursday. That day I had tailwinds on the way to work and on the way home. A cold front came through and reversed the wind direction! Every once in a while a rider will get blessed like that.
On certain days, the breeze helped with the overall speed. These clouds were evidence of the west wind that pushed me home on Thursday.
I don’t always have my eyes skyward. These tree roots have been stymied by the curb.
As I passed the Springfield Cardinal stadium, Hammond’s Field, I saw my friend Chris. He drives for FedEx and does deliveries to where I work. We have become pals and he is a commuter as well and a trail rider on the weekends.
My commute takes me across some RR tracks, but I rarely get delayed by passing trains. Not so yesterday.
Final observation, the objection to which will not be countenanced.
My readers (dear ones, all of you) may recall that one of my goals for the year is not to drop any clothespins while helping Jan hang out the clothes to dry.
Well, Jan started the laundry this a.m. and then went to attend a Master Gardener seminar in Nixa. I stayed home to work on the yard, this blog, and hang the clothes out to dry.
While diligently performing my task, I happened to knock the clothespin bag from off of the line.
In a flash, I rejected any accusation that I had Failed in my goal. I unilaterally and categorically DENY ANY statement to the contrary!
Let the record show, I have NOT, so far, dropped any clothespins for the year 2012.
I encourage you to,
