We had this plan to ride today and when Cindy sent me the text that the weather was a little “iffy” we thought twice about it. Being the intrepid riders that we are, we decided to try for it.

By the time I had biked from home to meet Cindy at our ride start, it was beginning to rain. Huh? “They” said rain would start later in the day. Oh well, here it was so we changed our plan a little. We would go for tea, and stop at Trader Joe’s for Cindy to pick up a few items she needed. Lo and Behold! There were REDS waiting for me.

I had not expected this treat, and these are not the reds I have in mind to capture for another RED post.

By the time we left our tea stop it was raining in earnest and I had a longer ride home than Cindy had. And part of my ride involved fast moving traffic that sprayed everything from the road up onto me. The traffic thinned and the rain eased as I neared home, I dried off a bit and arrived home chilled but not soaked.

Tomorrow I will try for the next round of reds I have in mind ;’-)

    Lots of red!
    Nice photos, the poinsettias particularly — no Trader Joes around here — closest we come is Dollar General with yellow carts, and Meijers in Danville with blue ones.

    Sounds like a nice albeit soggy outing.

      Nice albeit soggy should be the title of that ride ;’-). Glad to have ridden, as usual.

    Remember the old riddle, what is black and white and red all over? Nancy’s bike ride! Well maybe it wasn’t really black and white, just grey.

      I can say that some of the road grime kicked up from the traffic was black! So that fits the riddle ;’-).

    I cannot figure out how to ask a general question on the site, so will try here and hope an admin will read and respond to it. At the end of any of my posts — there is this list to fill in one’s name, email, website, and message. This is not on anyone else’s post that I can see. How can I get ride of it here? I tried logging out and back in but that did not work.

      I think you should post your question as a separate entry. The admin probably won’t see it here. Or post the question not as a comment but in the next entry. Then it will get red. 🤣

        Thanks Suzanne. I will do that the next time it happens. On my most recent post it was not there. Go figure.

          Hi Nancy,
          There is an “ADD CONTACT FORM” button next to the ADD MEDIA button. Maybe you accidentally clicked on that when trying to add a photo?

            That could be it Em. Thanks.

      Since I ride around a lot, these colors just seem to jump out at me ;’-).
