1. Just A Ride Challenge
  2. Holidays Challenge
  3. Cycle Days Challenge

I don’t always find ONE challenge on a ride, and looka here, I got three.

It would be just a ride today. Something between mist and drizzle welcomed me as I started riding from home at 8:30. I intended a relatively short ride this morning and with no destination in mind, I had no idea what I could possibly find for my picture of the day. 

Just riding, I came across a couple of things to like — the butterfly on a stone, the trike in the window of an otherwise empty building, and leaves that have fallen and become less colorful.

I suppose when most of us think of Thanksgiving we picture turkey. Food is probably the next image that comes to mind, and a gaggle of family surrounding us at the table. I am seeing more Christmas decorations already, but was pleased to find at least a few Thanksgiving reminders.

This looks about ready to head for the oven

What will be my photo of the day??? And then this. I approached the two women handing out lunches at the nearby elementary school and told them of my plight. Immediately, before I even finished my story, one of them moved the stuffed animal to a more prominent spot on the table, and both women told me they were smiling for me. How great is that????

This exact post will most likely be posted on my blog, but I could not resist posting it here for the three challenge capture.

      No more emptiness for me I suppose ;’-). Far from empty on this trip.

    Ooh, I loved the trike. Sometime I’ll have to show the trike my wife has stored in the garage. It’s a classic. (She really likes to collect OLD STUFF.)

    I pass the women handing out lunches at our schools all the time. I never thought to stop and talk to them. Good idea.

      Would love to see her old trike. As all of us, I love to see anything bike — and usually take a photo ;’-).

      The lunch women were so very nice, and it seemed I brought them a smile or two.

      I am always on a photo safari on my bike rides, so I keep my eyes not only peeled, but moving side to side ;’-).

    Oh my goodness, that picture of the inflatable turkey made me laugh. To me it looked like he is leaning in and trying to peek in the window… a literal peeping tom… the turkey!

      Maybe peeking to see if someone is getting the oven preheated!
