Thank goodness summer is almost over, a couple more days. The hot and humid days of summer really do get old and it seems the older I get the less I like it.
I've been getting in some riding, going to the gym and trying to keep up with mowing the yard, lot of rain this year, grass is still growing.
I'll be going on a ride in a couple of hours, this ride should put me over the 4000 mile mark for the year, now that's good for your health.

Hope everyone out there is doing fine, have a great day.

I don't think I've ever seen so much rain in August in this part of the country.
I did miss a few days riding because of the rain but you always hate to complain about the rain in Texas in August.

I've also been volunteeering at the Humane Shelter in Texarkana 2 days a week this month.
Helping at the shelter is a double edged sword, it's rewarding trying to make life better for the dogs but it can also be a bit depressing.

So nothing really exciting happening just waiting for cooler weather and lower Humidity.

As you can see from the photo below I tried to beat the sun this morning but we came over the hill at the same time.

I rode to Linden and met up with Jerry and we did a 26 mile loop SE of Linden and then I rode back to the casa. Jerry was gettin it on the flats at one time I was givin it my all and was having a hard time staying with him. Thankfully Jerry takes it easy on the hills so I got relief. We had a good ride and a good workout.

Yes it was hot even tho we got out early, photo was taken as I was leaving the house at 6:43.

It's heating up in E Texas, we're supposed to have some 100's this week, not good news, but it's Texas and it's summer, so that's how it is.
I had a good weekend of riding, going to take off today to get some things done around the casa and I go to the gym today.

I had a nice short vacation a couple of weeks ago, I went to Colorado for a week, how nice, cool and beautiful. If I can just win the lottery I'll have me a summer home in Colorado.
I've really been lazy with this page, my apologies, I hope to post a couple of my favorite pics from vacation soon.

Here's one of my favorite pics from Vacation, Colorado Mtn Goats on top of Mount Evans, elevation of pic, 14,000 feet.

Here are the Photos from my Colorado Trip that I have uploaded so far, still a work in progress.

I got out early this morning for a ride, trying to beat the heat which is really impossible this time of the year.
I rode to Linden and when I got to Kims I ran into John from Jefferson and a new lady rider named Terri Jones.
Terri lives up near Marietta and is just getting back on the bike, an enthusiastic biker.

John and Terri were going to Kildare and back and I was doing a loop so when we left Linden we went our separate ways.
When I got back to Linden John and Terri were there and I enjoyed visiting with them a bit.

I then headed for the casa, heating up quick.
A good day on the bike.
