I have passed the half-way point in my letter writing to Congress. So much effort goes into division that I thought a “little effort” toward understanding and unity would was worth my time.
I had a few more pictures to show before I put away the memories of this years bike ride across Iowa…
Spring is a month away… but the weather has been warm enough think winter’s day is done. As much as I enjoy the cool but warm day… it seems to early to see flowers and trees with green leaves. I will go with the flow and hope the summer does not continue this trend of heat and just enjoy the nice of nice days and nights.
Picked up my bike, and the bike shop reduced my bill by 50%… I did not get upset that I had driven 84 miles and my bike was not ready. I did not ask anything but they took on themselves to only charge for parts. One of the reason’s I stay with them. I did right by them, they did right by me. (Passing thought, people think that by yelling and making demands gets results. When I worked at a restaurant, a customer made a big deal about his dinner and wanted it done over…. it was a spaghetti dinner. The head cook, dipped into a pot of steaming hot spaghetti sauce, poured it over the dinner and sent it back. The customer was happy…)
I walked outside and passed by a weed… then I noticed a flower and decided I would spend the day on the good! Nice thoughts, good people and nice things.
Been thinking about what I would like to do… haven’t done a marathon (for the simple reason that running 26 miles has zero appeal for me). On the other hand walking that distance is a horse of a different color.
On my bikes… I think and then I ride some more.
Even before the April showers… my yard is full of flowers. So warm in fact that global warming seems more fact than fiction.
I have this statue of a monkey siting on books holding a human skull… he appears deep in thought…
