New 50 Plus Club Looking for Members

I have decided to be more physically active. Beginning
this weekend, I will ride 5 miles every day. If any of you
would like to join my Bike Club, please let me know and
we can make arrangements.

I think it would be appropriate to ride somewhere
between 5:00PM and 8:00PM. We can call it happy hour.

Here is a picture of my bike.

No seat belts either. Those might be helpful for the guys falling off of the wagon.

Many years ago I stopped in a saloon in Port Clinton, Ohio that was sporting seat belts on every barstool.

The Texas forecast ain't sounding that great, either.

Friday night - Freezing rain
Saturday - Freezing rain
Sunday - Freezing rain

I guess I picked the right time to be sliced and diced on.........
