It’s been a nice weekend…

It’s a shame it has to end.

Saturday

I fully intended to ride on Saturday; but I made the mistake of watching a gardening show while I had my morning coffee.  Next thing I know, I’m headed out to buy mulch and a couple of plants.  It needed to be done and the yard looks much nicer.

As for the rest of the day, I helped the across-the-street neighbor close down her yard sale, then a friend stopped by and we had a cocktail on the deck.

Sunday:

I did get in my ride today despite the sore hip flexors and stiff back from yesterday.

Interesting things on today’s ride.

On the way back in I checked out the extension being added to the bike path.  In this case, I use bike path loosely as this fits pedestrians.  But I would use it for the occasional short cut.

Finally, on the last leg of the ride, I happened to spot a CD with a big green apple on it laying in the road. As I rode by, I thought, “that doesn’t look like it’s been run over.” So I went back, picked it up and jammed it into my jersey pocket.

When I got home, I checked it out. It’s disc 1 of the Beatles Anthology 2. It plays perfectly. How do those things end up in the road?
