My Modest A-B-C Post

I was riding around MY Town this morning, looking for items that begin with the first three letters of the alphabet. It was pretty easy . . . maybe TOO easy. I had my A, B and C pictures taken within the first mile, so I relaxed and just concentrated on riding my bike on what would probably be the last 50-degree day until, like, March.

It wasn’t too long thereafter when I got a “boopadeeboopboop” sound on my phone, signifying a new e-mail. When I saw it was from somebody named Suzanne from Cycle365, I stopped to read what she had posted. I was not prepared for her amazing onslaught of A thru E’s.

“I can’t allow myself to be outdone on my own challenge,” I thought to myself. I took quite a few more pictures–including the one of Cops at the top of this page. They were questioning people at the scene of an Accident.

Somewhere along the line, I decided to edit myself down to one picture for each letter. I think that will be my modus operandi for the rest of the challenge. December has 31 days and I don’t want to run out of new options in the first week.

AUTOMOBILE (It parks in this spot at the middle school every day. I really like the sky blue color. The Feeshko doesn’t. What do you think?)

BRANCH (It fell from a tree along the Minnesota version of the Vermillion River.)

CASCADE (Also on the Vermillion River)

DUMPSTER (I don’t know why, but “D” was the hardest letter for me today.)

EAGLE (My favorite bird, and this was an unusually big one)

Hi. My name is Greg and I ride my bike a lot. That is to say, I ride my bike almost every day. I go on long rides and short rides. Sunny rides, cloudy rides, and rainy rides. I like commuting, errand-running, day-tripping, overnighting, and touring on my bike. I ride on city streets, highways, gravel, single track, and snow with equal enthusiasm. Sometimes I ride fast and sometimes I ride slow. I try to keep my feet on the pedals at stop lights and I do not dismount when I hop up on a curb. I have a roadie bike, a mountain bike and a touring bike. I try to accept any challenge a bike ride can throw at me without complaint. But I don't like bugs.

    Nice ensemble of letter photos!

    My post is pretty modest too, but then, as someone once said, I have a lot to be modest about. 😉

    I’m with the Feeshko, that blue sucks. I think people painted their bedrooms that colour in the 70s
