Walkin'

Picking up from where I left off last week, Sabra and I started the final leg of our bicycle trip about 8:30 a.m. with two cold beers in my pannier.
The day was clear, warming quickly and I soon noticed that I had forgotten to fill my water bottles before leaving. I was nowhere near dying of thirst, but after 15 miles I was getting uncomfortable.
And then we came across Joe near Perryopolis.

Food For Thought

I have many friends who live in relatively new houses, houses with patios and decks and a front entrance that presents a barrier against the outside world rather than an inviting front porch. I remember the days when front porches had porch swings, Adirondack chairs, even hammocks slung between the house and railing. Porches where families sat after supper and watched the world go by, greeted neighbors out for strolls, kept an eye on the kiddies riding their tricycles along the sidewalk before being called in for bedtime.
