Hello everyone, just a cool little story from the other night:

I don't ride much once it's dark. We live in a community with lots of critters which like to appear out of the darkness and try to stop you by freezing right in front of you. A week ago my son waited for a deer to leave our front yard so he could open the garage and another night it was a fox. It just sat there waiting for him to leave, I suppose. In the spring we had a bear wandering around down the block. You know, nature.

Anyway, I decided to take an early night ride. The boulevard lights on our main road would be on and I wasn't planning a long ride. Just an evening spin. As I was turning onto our main road I noticed someone who looked to be working on a bike. As I got closer I realized it was my neighbor. I got off my bike and aimed the light where he was focused. He smiled and then turned to me.

"Harv? " He had that quizzical yet surprised look on his face. We solved his problem and he joined me for the ride.

Who or what will be next?

What would be worse would be to find yourself peering into the bushes... Standing...

Ah... That would truly be an accidental discovery...
