    Windy Spring Ramble

    Well, we tried for a longer ride today. My keister is much better, finally, but the 30 MPH winds pretty much killed our 76 mile plans, but we did 15.





    Here's where we grabbed some coffee on the ride on the way home, Panera's. They have a nice outdoors terrace, so it's nice. The temperatures got up to 84, but the humidity was minimal, so other than the wind, it ws a pretty comfortable day.
    on light duty due to illness; please contact my assistants for forum issues. They are Siu Blue Wind, or CbadRider or the other 3 star folk. I am currently at home recovering from a couple of strokes. I am making good progress, happily.

    Nice.

    Chicago has sun, 20 mph southerly winds and 70 degrees away from the lake and then I had rain, 20 mph northeasterly winds and 50 degrees along the Northshore.

    April can be the cruelest month.

    ...breeding
    lilacs out of the dead land, mixing
    Memory and desire, stirring
    Dull roots with spring rain.
    Winter kept us warm, covering
    Earth in forgetful snow, feeding
    A little life with dried tubers.
    Summer surprised us, coming over the Starnbergersee
    With a shower of rain; we stopped in the colonnade,
    And went on in sunlight, into the Hofgarten,
    And drank coffee, and talked for an hour.

    It's good to see you up and about, Tom. Next week beat the wind into submission!

    Felt great, too! My butt is starting to be able to stand the saddle. I did a standing sprint headed through the mall, and got to hear "Go Lance, go!"

    Guy walked up at Panera's and told me he wasn't trying to offend, he just loved seeing me fly low.
