Well, ok, Jack is my little friend as he watches me fill a fountain but not the little friend to which I reference in the title.
Amy and I go out on a hilly, 40 mile ride with her sister Tracy. The quality of the pavement we ride is very, very good.
We regroup a couple of times which allows us to admire our surroundings.
We include Territory Drive which has a 18% section. Beautiful day and then another system comes through, not with rain but with....
....wind as Jack's hair acts as a wind mill to show the direction from which the wind is coming.
It's welcome but all the sudden, several roads in crummy condition, are finally being repaved, including many miles of Speedway Road. Never thought I'd see the day. All the way from Houghton, past Freeman, beyond Wentworth to where the road dead ends at the base of the mountains. And then....
....I rented a chain saw which is at the end of a 12' pole. Say hello to my little friend...yeehaw!
We did some major tree branch removal. Dang, that thing is heavy but it worked great and the project is finished.
