Well the cover picture is me with a friendly squirrel or road kill that some one had placed on the bridge (I’ll let you decide) in Yosemite NP in 1986. I went on a three month journey doing the west, south and east of USA and across Canada. It was an amazing experience which I will treasure forever unfortunately the only bike riding I did was on a hire bike in Ottawa Canada. I’m pretty sure I’ve seen more of those countries than the average local.
Also a local squirrel story for Greg. When I was young, the Perth Zoo was full of them, running up trees and across the grassed parks. Unfortunately Australia’s history with feral animals such as rabbits, cane toads, foxes was not good, so they all got exterminated in case they spread out and competed with the native animals. Hey, I didn’t say it was a happy story.
Here’s a famous American painting adapted for our Covid 19 times which nicely segues to my song by Bruce Hornsby who had a great middle name
Also here’s a 1 hour talk with John Prine I heard on the radio if you’re interested
I’ve been doing some local rides to compensate for my failure to travel to the eastern states for my Ned Kelly ride
Also here’s the last of my rides around town below
Happy cycling everyone, we’re sending you some warm weather from down south.
