That is what the big fellow yelled at Jan. We had by-passed his gas station to go to the one across the road.
But then I saw a few of his buds were walking towards him. So, maybe he wasn’t yelling at Jan after all, but it still scared the bee-geebees [direct quote] out of her. We headed out another way.
We were at Willard having switched routes from Republic. At least the east wind going home gave us more opportunity to perfect our drafting technique.
That was Saturday and no I did not take any pictures, but Monday was different.
We revisited an old friend [route] by leaving from Temple Israel and going to Rogersville with an added section south on Finbrooke.
Out fourth turtle save of the year occured early on. This ol’ fellow [or gal? I didn’t bother to check – but then I wouldn’t know what to look for, not being well aquainted with terrapins] had seen some action in the past.
White flowers are my favorites and we saw plenty of the following two varieties.
Some of the fields were unplowed and unsown. One field was getting its first cut. Perhaps the farmer will get two more by the end of the year.
A couple of years ago this field along County Road U was full of wheat, as it is again.
Most of the trip was in a cross wind, but the turn north on County Road VV gave a needed respite. When we got to the Hardee’s at R-ville we parked the bikes out by the trees on the south end of the parking lot. Our last visit had there caused our odometers to wildly register phenomenal speeds while standing still. I checked the Cateye website and learned that their bike PCs are sometimes affected by wireless communication which cannot be prevented. Parking away from the building we did not have any trouble this time.
An uneventful ride back to the car was followed by mowing the lawn and inspecting and watering the garden.
We have two new families moved into the neighborhood.
Jan and I feel we have taken on new Obligations and Responsibilities!
