I have good friends here in Springfield who don’t let the current conditions keep them from the daily commute.  Tracy, Jim, and Paul are all better men than I.

I took to the truck and turned on the defroster to clear the windshield of the sleet and snow that is heading toward the east coast.  Cycling will return, but not soon enough for me.

Jan and I had to go to a local mall last night on an errand.  Being there reminded me why I don’t go there and it wasn’t even crowded.  I don’t miss it.

But something that we have started to enjoy once more in the evenings is the collection of classical LPs that I held onto when CDs became the wave.  Usually we have Mozart, but tonight I introduced Jan to Schubert’s Trout Quintet.  The music is satisfying.

Everyone needs something like that.

Stay happy,



About rlhoover

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??

    I don’t know about the “better” part, more crazy perhaps, but crazy doesn’t necessarily make you better. 🙂

    The Trout is a real treat.

    It is well to simply say “no mas” on occasion. Even those you cite do so.

      As you say, everyone has their own line in the sand. BTW, I want to say once more how good your recent offering, I Remember, is. I read it to my wife and she just looked at me and smiled. Thank you, Steve.
