Well the weather FINALLY got warm enough to get the bike out. Actually we even had a couple of TOO HOT and HUMID days.
It is so nice to be able to have all the doors and windows open.
I had quite the audience this time while getting the bike out. Mr. R was very curious as to how it was done and asked a ton of questions.
Also had Mrs. J and their Daughter observing.
As many times as I’ve now done this – it continues to be slow and very carefully and I’m ever so relieved when it’s done.
First up after that was to clean the bike. Boy was it dirty, still from all the Arizona dust and sand plus sitting in the garage for so long.
The next day I took it for a short spin out to Niagara-On-The-Lake – a gorgeous area about 1/2 hour or so from when I am. AND I run into my friend Byron while riding. He ‘claims’ he’s not stalking me !! LOL
Turns out he came by where I was staying and of course I was gone. He had just told me the day or so before about a particular place in NOTL and he figured that’s where I might have gone. But still the chances of actually finding me were very remote.
There are dozens of different ways I could have gone there and come back. So it was just by chance that he did actually find me and we ended up having a lovely little ride together.
Stopped at Tim’s for a cuppa and then he wanted to take me to a HD that was nearby.
It was a picture perfect day for riding.
‘DA FLIES !!!
There everywhere ! And apparently it’s not even ‘fly season’ yet. Sure have to make sure the screen doors are closed.
I’d actually let them ‘live’ if they didn’t insist on buzzing around my head and ears !! I must have swatted a thousand of them already. So off to the store I go and get those sticky fly traps. Hung several in the garage.
And even two in the house – not attractive looking but hey it works.
One particular day it was very hot and humid and it was so nice to sit outside reading my book – enjoying looking at the trees that are beginning to come to life again – and the gorgeous green grass – and know that “I” don’t have to maintain it !! LOL
Bennie sure likes it also.
I really haven’t been doing much of anything – yet the days are flying by – and every day I’m out and about doing something – just don’t know what it is !! LOL
