How to grow a blog – post a lot. How to shrink a blog – post a little.
The main story today: I think I gave a bike trail jogger a very big fright tonight.
It was dark. It was windy. I saw a light ahead from quite a distance. After I got closer I could see a jogger with a flashlight. He also had a reflective strip on his jacket and reflective spots on his shoes. It’s surprising the number of people who venture onto the trail in the dark without any lighting whatsoever.
As I got closer he began to see his own shadow created by my Cateye Five Barrels of LED Fun. Perhaps he thought he was going to be run over by a motorcycle. He whipped around and pointed his flashlight directly into my face. If it had been a light saber maybe he would have cut me in half.
Hi! I said and rolled past.
Today was my first day riding after the time change. Monday I performed water duty for my team. Yesterday my work mates divided two South Dakota cows. The uncertainty of how much meat I would have to haul put me in the car. I tried to pretend it was worth it because the meat didn’t have to be flown from Japan. That only made be feel a little better.
My favorite part of this time of year? NIGHT RIDES at 5:30.
The Boy 4 is really messed up. He’s calling for jammies, even before supper.
The #1 reason I’m not posting much right now: 8 hours of sleep a night!
The #2 reason I’m not posting much right now: I’m reading three books. At once. This, from a guy who sometimes reads 3 books a year.
