Odd Ride- was it a Dream?
I went on a short ride after getting home from work on my favorite ride, 11 miles thru various horse farms central bluegrass - few hills, SELDOM any traffic, almost a one lane blacktop. Well - about 4 miles into the ride I notice a large bird (Turkey Buzzard) flying about treetop level just above my head. Follows me for about 100 yards, when he breaks off and another one takes over, following me for about another 100 yarsd or so. I'm thinking Bad Omen.
Well, another 2 miles down the road I see 2 TWO Stunning blonds jogging towards me - well, make that one stunning, the other just simply georgous. I think - Wow! I have never seen joggers out here much less these 2. Wonder were they started from?
I travel 2 more miles, meet up with some horses (colts have been born and are running) and they start running with me! We do this for about 1/4 mile. (clocked'em @27mph)
Sooo- Finish ride, turn around, head back and here comes the 2 blondes EXACTLY were I passed them before (headed back towards me). I'm going up a small incline, and doing about 19-20 mph. Both smile and shout 'Hi'.
My hearts pumping like crazy (max exertion!!! GRIN).
So I get home, wife gives me a cold brew, has dinner fixed. I tell her the experience and she just smiles.
It was one of them special rides were legs felt great, heart was pumping and life was wonderful.
So was it a dream? Omen? (can't figure out the birds except roadkill and didn't see any on the way back).
At a minimum it was an interesting evening!
