10 miles in the woods, saw this otter messing with this alligator!

The size of the balls on that otter!

100 Miles O.D... Or was it 101. Might've just been 100.1. Not going to burn my coffee over it.

OK, have to non-humble brag today. Did 33 miles at an average speed of 19.2 MPH. Not too horrible for a 67 YO.

Road about 25 miles today. Wanted to go farther but grass cutting and work calls. Today was the first warm humid day. Sweat flowing down into my eyes.

Stopped at one of the murals in town

That means nothing in Seattle. Being originally from NYC, I have remarked that June is SUMMER. I've learned that is not the case in Seattle. Mid-July is more like it. But even so, we have been running 10-15 degrees below normal even for May.

Dreadful. Absolutely dreadful. We did hit 108F last year, in June actually, and it was coupled by terrible air quality.

But my little story. When my parents purchased a condo in Ft Lauderdale, I quipped that if I were to inherit property, I would prefer a condo in Colorado. Mother was not amused!
