Afternoon Delight!

My wife works weird hours but she get's off at 3PM. on Weds. afternoon's. we finally got some great weather so we took off on a 10 mile ride, lot's of sun, blue sky's and some puffy white clouds. We ran the whole Rock Island Rail-Trail and then stopped off at a Subway's for a sandwich. Great way to get thru Humpday, back home in time to watch LOST on the TV. SWEET!

I think he should of posted some pics.
Howdy, I saw no "smiley faces" or humor in the response, sorry. If he ment it as a joke adding a "winking smiley" would have worked wonders.

I guess I DO!, after all, don't you all get tired of the same old, "Gee pls. tell me which bottom line comfort bike I should buy" comments in this topic area? We consider ourselves "Recreational Riders", I "thought" that's what this topic area was about. I'll make SURE I go back to the 50+ area where folks are not so hostile!

I was posting on an iPod Touch, which limits what you can do. Seriously, lighten up or risk being called a "noob".

LOL, IF that's the worst thing I get called in my lifetime, I'll die a happy person! I've been trained to look for "smileys", they can be done by hand without the pretty colors Thanks for the warning!
