I took Jack the Dog for a morning walk. He is so much more energetic on the outbound route than the inbound route. On the return, I felt a tug on the leash and there he sat, refusing to go farther. It took a lot of tugging to convince him to continue.
I rode the previous day and than Amy and I got out for about a 25 mile route that included checking out the new pavement on Kolb Road and then doing a loop above Ventana Canyon Resort.
I arrived at the top of a pretty good climb a few seconds before Amy and snapped this pic as she was going by. On our way back....
....passed this SUV. It's interesting to me how the locals put far more effort into Halloween decorations than they do Christmas. I suppose the climate has an influence. The times I froze stapling lights to the front of a house in December yet here, no weather barrier exists. I put off visiting Ohio so we could attend....
....friend Dawn and Tim's Halloween party on Friday evening. Amy, above on the left, Dawn on the right.
Dawn put in a heck of a decorating effort and we had a good time. Of course....
....had to pose for the couples pic. Why do I still look paunchy???? Pull in that stomach Mark!!!! My costume was that of a mortician, caring for one of his customers. We kinda ate and drank too much and then the following morning, Amy drove me to the airport and I arrived in Ohio for a briefer visit than normal. More to come.
