Jim was at the day center and I decided, for a change, that it would be a “Laura” day. After dropping him off, I drove to Mt. Washington, KY (something like 7 miles from home) and had breakfast on the house. Last time we were in there, it took 45 minutes to get our food. The manager was walking around handing out cards for a free meal. I then spent over two hours playing with my new camera (not the one I usually use when biking) at The Parklands, which is between home and where I ate. Back home, I quickly changed clothes and took off on Violette, to do a ride I planned over a month ago. I traveled on new and old-to-me roads in a very rural area with hills, but they weren’t killers. Back home the new computer on the old bike said I’d done over 10 miles. Not much, but this is my first real ride this summer.
The mare and the colt were going to be my “new and old” picture, but after I rode on, I remembered the bicycle was supposed to be in the picture. The second picture is my old bike with the new seat cover (Thank you, Nancy!), new can of dog spray (although our entire county has a leash law), and new bicycle computer. We’re in front of Fairmount Falls Park. It’s a metro park, but as you can see, there’s a cable across the entrance. The sign says you have to call a number 24 hours in advance and give them your auto information to get a permit. I wonder what they’d say if I told them I was coming on a bicycle.
