See Mom I have friends!
|This just kinda freaked me out so I had to share it...|
Someone needs horns and it's even more perfectly weird.
Maybe a tail and a pitch fork?
Any photoshoppers out there?
Hills with Ro on Wednesday, we discussed our Long Island bike ride that was supposed to be that day but got pushed out due to schedule issues till the next day. It was rainy in the morning and got nicer as the day progressed, still cool, probably the first day I’ve not worn a tank top in months. We were happy the trip was postponed a day, the weather was looking ideal for Thursday. Took Gus out for a walk then Jax, while it takes longer it was more fun for all of us.
The Long Island bike ride day was upon us, Dave and I were up and out by 6:20 a.m. on Thursday to catch the 7:15 a.m. ferry with Ro, Mark, Grace, & Steve. The day started with Grace having a flat tube before we even got on the ferry. That was changed on the boat and we were off for the second of 4 ferry rides for the day. 9 miles to the Shelter Island Ferry and then we were off to cycle through Shelter Island to the South Ferry and then on to the long part of Long Island. The wind was not our friend for this part of the journey along the South Fork and the Hamptons, but once we reached Riverhead we would be heading East and the wind would be in our favor. We made a couple stops here and there and one at the Big Duck! Then lunch and then we were a few miles from having the wind at our back as we rode through the wine country of the North Fork. Really a nice ride and Long Island is very very flat so lots of pedaling and very very little coasting. We had a couple adult beverages at the bar ¼ of a mile from the ferry and made it on the 4:30 ferry. Gus got a walk, it is trash night on a lot of the roads we walk; one of his favorite nights of the week.

Relive it here.
Back to Circuit Class for Friday and my Wobbly Crumply Knee wobbled and nearly crumpled but I’m able to sense it before I fall, it’s really really wobbly and crumply, I didn’t complete the first set of sprint exercises in class and was able to do the second set without Wobbly Crumply Knee. Interesting, very interesting. Gus and I went for a long ramble, I needed to get cash from the money god and thought I'd try the closer one but it was closed, like no more bank, so we wandered around and headed home and there was another money god that would give me money with no service charge so we prayed to it.
|Yeah, not so much anymore....|
I could feel my Wobbly Crumply Knee clicking a bit, not sure what that was all about, something to note.
|Me, Faith, Crutch|
Knitting: Made some progress on the increasing part of the baby sweater!
Reading: Ulysses, my friend Sheila asked how it was going. My reply:
It's the ramblings of a drunk lunatic about Leopold Bloom's day, his random thoughts, his sexual perversions and fantasies on the 16th of June 1904. As with most of the 'classics' overly descriptive and wordy. Dave, while reading Moby Dick "Really, Melville needs 4 single spaced tiny type pages to describe the color white?" It's 30 hours of driving time. I got a little bit out of it but really, it took me 10 hours to figure out that this was about one person and not many persons... Maybe I'm illiterate? ha ha
My mother suggested this may not be the book for me. I'm going to finish it damn it, I am stubborn!! It's really not all THAT bad, better on audio I probably would have thrown the book or the Kindle across the room by now...
Feet: 43 - (28 of these are running! Gus is walking longer)
All in all a good week, a little light on the bike but totally on me for bailing on Saturday's ride.
Beth, happy with the cooler weather.
