I took a ride in the country on Friday and passed through the hamlet of Alligerville. I like that name.

This past Monday on a gorgeous day in Dallas I was able to get in a longish ride around the city.

I am always amazed at the size, scope and attention to detail of these cowboy & longhorn cattle drive sculptures near the Dallas Convention Center.

My 60cm bike gives you an idea of the size.

My distance vision has been deteriorating for the last ten years or so. I finally got my first pair of glasses this week. The world is such an intricately detailed and beautiful place!
I went out in the yard and took these few photographs to celebrate.

Mine's been doing the same for the past few years. Still haven't gotten around to getting glasses, and street signs are getting more complicated every day. Sigh.

Yes sir, that's Mt. Olympus in the background. I climbed the summit 2 weeks ago and it was covered in snow, amazing stuff. It was a lot of fun.

The problem with showing your bike off at your work is I did not even see your bike in the picture. That chamber is wild.
