Taking it easy
Sorry that you haven't heard from me in a while, but now that Thanksgiving is over with we can relax and get ready for my favorite holiday...Christmas! I say "we" meaning Daisy & myself...Thanksgiving just wore her out having to dodge so many feet.
The weather has warmed up again nearing the 70º F. mark and of course, anyone who knows Jimmy & I, know that you won't find us sitting at home if the temperature is above 60º. It takes 60 for me to ride, but Jimmy rides if it's dry...that's his criteria. I have to have a little warmth along with the dry, before I ride. We met 3 friendly bikers today and talked to them for about an hour outside a restaurant and they invited us to join them, on bike night, for a ride to Science Hill.
There were many bikes out today enjoying the warmth of the sun. What's nice about bikers is that they're friendly and will come over and start up a conversation with other bikers. Would you walk up to strange car drivers and begin a conversation everytime you see a car? Your answer is probably NO. I don't either. But bikers are different...they're friendly towards other bikers. They also wave to each other when they pass on the roadways. Bikers don't consider other bikers as strangers, but friends they just haven't met yet.
Tomorrow I plan to go out and meet more friends, who perhaps will direct me to a wonderful place to see in their area...like a beautiful waterfall or a scenic view not known to the general public, or a herd of elk in a distant field. There is always some new destination to discover and I plan on going there.
Get out and enjoy the warm sunny weather and for the Christmas holidays, do something nice and "pass it backwards." When you pull up to pay for your food at a drive-in restaurant, just go ahead and pay for the car behind you and tell the cashier to just wish the car Merry Christmas. And believe me, it's more fun when you don't have a clue who's in the car behind you.
