A couple of days ago, my name appeared on a famous bike touring blog. The author used the adjective “creative” to describe me. Seriously? Or was that a typographical error? Or a bit of facetiousness–like calling a tall guy “shorty?”
Today, the same author posted something here on Cycle365 in which he called me an “Absolutely Bonkers Character.” What’s up with that?
More importantly, which is it gonna be? CREATIVE or BONKERS? After reading the rest of today’s post, I think you will have to agree that it sure isn’t the former.
I went for a bike ride two days ago. It was another sunny and unusually warm day. I came up with a collection of A, B, C, D and E pictures. They weren’t very creative pictures, but I suppose they were good enough to satisfy the ABCDE requirements. Unfortunately, I didn’t have time to post them after the ride because I had to drive down to Red Wing, MN to attend a retirement party for a former colleague, and from there I had to drive down to Iowa so I could take my dad to his oncology appointment the next day.
Today (Saturday) I’m back home and I went for another bike ride. This time it was a cloudy, gloomy and cold day. I had even LESS creativity than I had on Thursday. I was only able to repeat the same A,B,C,D and E subjects as before. One small consolation is that they were different versions of those subjects.
So, I submit to you the Thursday photos & Saturday photos. Think of them as the “before & after” pictures.
