Time to rock and roll. Had our company picnic last night, beers, steaks, and other stuff. Joshua my son phoned me later after I got home and asked if I could pick him up and take him to work at 5:15 a.m. I have to oblige, it was payday for him, he's 22, and I've always told him don't drink too much and drive, so he got a ride to his apartment late that night and did not have away to work in the morning. Hmm about 5 hours sleep. Well now it's time to ride, ride through the tiredness.
I have a lot of things I should do today, thought for a moment maybe I don't have time to ride for 6 hours, thought again. I need to ride to be me. So I'll get er all done, first things first, time to gravel travel.

Much later................

Ahhh was a great ride. 62 miles on the gravel. Just kept my nose to the grindstone, nothing fast, but kept working. Left knee is a bit flared up, has some fluid build up, got her on ice to settle things down, want to get out tomorrow yanno.

Saw the U.S. Army out in Graf Iowa, population 73. There was a run for the troops going on. My Honey's son, Marco, is associated with this group, they are going to Afghanistan in August. When I told them I knew Marco, they gave me the royal treatment. Fine young men, doing their duty.

Thanks for the visit.

We can never stop being Dad's. Although thats not a bad thing really - much better than the alternative.
