Bonus Day

Well, I moseyed on down to the Big Dam Bridge on Sunday for a little solitude and reflection. It was a remarkably warm, sunny, weekend day after a few days of snow and cold, so I reasonably expected to have the place to myself. I was shocked and dismayed to see hundreds, if not thousands, of strollers, runners, dog walkers and....believe it or not, cyclists! I thought that that little problem had been addressed by Mr. Carlyle's relocation plan, but here they were, complete with their "ridiculous uniforms". My "uniform", of course, had been selected with impeccable taste, fit perfectly, and what Carlye referred to as "body armor", must have been my rock hard abs, so I know I was lookin' good. The rest of those people looked absolutely silly in their get-ups, living out their foolish Tour de France-style fantasies of fitness and health.

"In the name of humanity, find these clowns another site..." Carlyle
Yep, there must be better places to ride bikes than on a bike path.
Everyone seemed to be getting along quite well under the watchful eye of cyclist bad boy Jonny Meyer. He seemed a little "pro bike path", which means that he is likely a supporter of socialism,  the UN, and the New World Order. I don't know these things to be true and he's probably just a guy who likes to ride his bike, but if we repeat it enough.....


Cyclists and walkers weren't the only folks enjoying the remarkably nice day.

I haven't see so many horses since Bonanza went off the air.

OK, I'll quit being snarky. There were a lot of smiling faces out soaking up the welcome warm sunshine and, in spite of the fact that we all hear complaints about various trail users, we all get along remarkably well.

I've never seen a horse out there before. Just evidence that they had been there.

yeah, horses do leave a lot of "evidence"...
