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.
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.
