When you read this I am either eating breakfast with my mother, or on the road heading home. Of course you may be reading this during the time when I am at Lueken’s Liquors picking up some beer to bring home with me.
Follow Me To The Headwinds!
There is an old adage “Red sky at night, sailors’ delight”. I want to start a new one, “Gray sky at morning, cyclists’ warning”.
The gray sky yesterday didn’t inspire me to go out riding, my fat belly and knowledge that I would be a leftover eater did.
I headed out on the same route as Monday only to find an annoying headwind impeding my progress. I didn’t help my cause either by riding out the Dunedin causeway, where there is no shelter from the wind, to the entrance of Honeymoon Island State Park.
Hilariously I looked at my stats at the end of the ride and my maximum elevation was 35′, yes, thirty-five feet. My ride covered 31 miles in about two hours; at my fastest point, when sheltered from the wind I was “speeding” on the Pinellas Trail by exceeding the 20mph speed limit.
I thought that I was going to take a second spur off the trail yesterday until I noticed that I was riding though a gate with a “No Trespassing” sign attached to it.
Yesterday I saw a group ride, of about ten, out on the Pinellas Trail. I never even considered looking for a group ride while I was down here.
I Eat More Chicken Than Any Man Ever Seen
Because of my mother’s poor health, specifically the pain mess she’s had to take, she slept a lot yesterday. Because of this I wound up being a leftover vacuum.
For brunch I finished off the Mexican food we brought back from our Monday dinner.
My dinner consisted of leftover KFC with some macaroni salad.
There was an inquiry about whether or not I want to take chicken with me for lunch on the road. I’m not so sure about this…
He is my winning card and the $70 of winnings that remained after I tipped the volunteer $5. After splitting this with my mother, and deducting the $20 I invested in the night, I wound up with a $15 profit.
Think of the fifteen sandwiches I could have purchased if we had been playing at the church again.
Returning Home To Restart
I am looking forward to returning home. I have many, many things to do including figuring out what I am going to do for healthcare. Oh joy!
I also need to restart my efforts to learn German and Swift.
Oh, and on Monday afternoon I have an interview. Wait, what?!?
