#330daysofbiking Days 81 & 82: and now, for something completely different… almost

man hits the ground (and not on a bicycle)


Not that I am a huge baseball fan or anything … but who doesn’t like a baseball game on a summer evening, cheap seats, beer and peanuts?

RIding on Saturday (Day 81) was a pretty boring commute/errand-running trip.  To the pet store.  To Target.  To the grocery store.  Just plain hot and nasty.  Arriving everywhere like a complete sweat-ball.  Oh well.

In the evening, the entire gang decided to head into Chattanooga to catch a baseball game.  The Lookouts are our local double-A team, an affiliate of the L.A. Dodgers.  Always feels like summer, sitting at a ball-game – even though I tend to do more people-watching and everything other than paying close attention to the game.  I just like being out there, sitting with Mark and the boys.  And a different setting for picture-taking.

Day 81 errand-riding

Today was another hot one.  I think, on average, we’ve been in the 90’s every day this week – with heat indexes at 100’F or above.  Just pretty miserable to be riding for any length of time.  Saved the riding for the evening once again – Mark and I took a spin on the Xtracycles.  Just around “the neighborhood”.  The cicadas are out in full force, their droning song fills the air.  We need some rain.  We need some cool.

Day 82: two Xtracycles, double the fun...

      I have not been watching ENOUGH Monty Python, pal …. 😉 Sending you a note; feeling like being in CA about now, assuming you are bit more temperate than the sweltering blast furnace it has been here…

    If you want rain, my darlin’ girl, pedal yourself up to ONTARIO and on up the road to Honey Harbour. It has barely stopped raining here in weeks…occasional sunny moments but they are few and far between.

    I don’t swim but if I did I would not need flippers as there are little webby forming between my toes.

    Hope the patient is recovering and will soon be back to his old self.

      If I start pedaling now, I should make it up to the beautiful shores of Honey Harbour by ….. (the time you head back to FL??!)

Mary Lou, it’s a small world…your good friend Kathryn S. has just come back to northern cal and is rug hooking again with us again. she mentions you fondly and I know you’re great pals with Cas. So…lets make a road trip out of it…I’ll even ride my bike

      If you’re riding, LP, then we’re definitely going … the Cycling Hookers?! LOL

    As I’m not sure of your readership I was afraid of using the term Hookers without the word rug (perhaps capitalization helps?)….However I see once again you’ve wildly swept in. I can’t wait to hear the buzz now about that girl who rides bicycles is also a Hooker! Shall we explain? Nah…….You’ll just have them all lining the streets looking for you! You go girl…
