Damn, if it ain't a sunny day!

Servus!

I just finished a bit of routine maitenance on RangerGirl and my bikes and we're going to go ride in about an hour.

She asked if I wanted to go ahead and ride for a while and then pick her up so I get some good km's in, to which I replied "no, I would rather ride five with you than a hundred alone."

She said "I wouldn't ride if I couldn't ride with you."

RangerGirl is a goddess. That's why it's a fine, sunny day!

Bravo, Ranger! That is the kind of relationship that makes EVERY day a sunny day!

Yesterday was our anniversary. We take my mother-in-law to Mass every weekend in the church where we were married. On the way to pick her up, I realized that not only was it our anniversary (well, I knew that already), but it was Saturday, AND we would be in the same church where it all started exactly 28 years earlier. I thanked Rainbabe's Mom for letting me marry her "little girl" that day. It was a very sunny day for the Rainman.

Servus!

Jon, I fully intend to keep the butter side UP!

We just got back about an hour ago and wanted to give you all an update.

We rode to a animal park that is in the area and I must say, I recommend that to all of you. We had so much fun seeing all of the animals and being near a part of nature that you don't normally see. A great time for the kids as well, but you parents out there don't need me to tell you that!

This park is really cool because it is in the middle of a local forest and costs nothing - you just walk through. Lots of exotic and interesting animals living there from Europe and parts of Asia and Australia. The Wisent (a European bison) was really cool and wanted me to scratch his back like my cats. I asked RangerGirl if I could take him home but we decided that an animal that weighs 800 - 1000kg would not fit into our 12mē yard too well. RangerGirl found that the Emu likes to snap at you if you get too close! All of this and a bike ride too! Can't beat that for the money...

A nice end to a nice day. I hope that you all have a great day in the Sun!

RainmanP,
Indeed you are very lucky, and same here, been married for the last 25 years, unfortunately the wifey, doesn't know how to ride the bike, so when my son and I go out to ride the bike, I just meet here on Woodbine beach and we just do our picnic there every time we have a chance to do it, and before I forget
"Happy anniversary"
