    The GOOD far outweighs the BAD!!

    Really!!

    I had the last four days off and they were all great weather with sunshine and temperatures north of 60*. Two of those days had northerly breezes making the Ontario shore zone quite foggy and cold but I only had to go south a few miles to emerge into the basking sunshine.

    I was able to re-aquaint myself with the recumbents that have been squirreled away all winter and what a joyous time it has been. I ride a lot in areas that were criss crossed by several railroads and this very early riding has afforded me views of some old rail road relics that are usually hidden by foliage. I've been taking a lot of pictures but they will be stuck in my camera for a while as my computer has gone belly up.

    Yep, the bad is that we are in the process of purchasing a new desktop computer. That is all of the bad for this week though.

    The good seems almost too numerous to list; great weather, four days off from work (during the great weather), back on the recumbents (a little over 100 miles over the four days), and the enjoyment of riding and visiting with Gyro and his bride.

    10 more days and I will be able to ride whenever I want- Wherever I want and as often as the wife allows me after I have done the gardening- decorated the house- Cleared the loft and said "Please".

    No more having other tag along with me on rides and forcing me to go at 2 or 3 mph faster than I want.

    Luckily we have a Mup that was an old Railway line and plenty of "Artistic" Sculptures along the trail. When I can get a more "Casual" ride I will get the camera working harder to compensate for me "not"






    And just a tip on that new computer and that is memory-- I have 16gb and image work is fast- Processor is not that fast but the computer flies with the amount of memory I have.
    How long was I in the army? Five foot seven.
