Spring.... Yay!


OK. For all the wonderful people do not live in the northern USA, your change of seasons has probably already happened. But for us crazy people live along the Canadian border, northeast Ohio for , the advent of spring is an elusive creature. For example, couple ago we got 2 feet of snow the end of April. Not normal, but it happens.

Blah, blah, blah. I know. But I share this because today was an awesome day. The rain has washed all the road salt away. And means its motorcycle riding season. This has an aphrodisiac like quality in it makes my spirits soar. Open roads. Wind, and bugs, in the . This afternoon was sunny, upper 60s, and I found lots of miles to explore. roads, new roads. Meeting friends and making new friends. Makes life fun and peaceful. the same time. Go figure one ! LOL

For those don't ride motorcycles, I'll ask you to remember when you first got your driving license and hopped in the car just to go for a ride. Nowhere in particular to go, just the thrill of driving around exploring. Then I'll ask how many of you still do take ride to nowhere. Perhaps some. But I guessing most have long forgotten thrill. So, the point of sharing this story is , ar least for me, motorcycle riding keeps thrill alive. I have been riding for some time and it never gets . What's your adventure??

Never know where these go, but I thought I'd share a thought for the day!

Having lived in Barberton, Ohio many years ago, I remember getting 29 inches of snow overnight. It was beautiful, but we lived by the on ramp of the east/west 70. That side was closed but the west/east was open. My girl's Dad was a military recruiter and had to go to work…….Military doesn't excuse bad weather

I have lived in North East Texas all of my life and never remember a deep, beautiful snow. If we get anything it is usually ice!! But today it was sunshine and 80 degrees. Wish it wouldn't get any hotter. I use to ride motorcycles and LOVED it!!

I moved from Virginia to Florida ten years ago. I certainly don't miss the snow. And I have seen snow here once or twice. The weather this year in Florida has been quite unusual. And, We in North Central Florida have experienced a very late spring.

Joe's son lives in Maine, and said they had snow flurries today. We just have a lot of clouds and rain right now, and the poor farmers haven't even started planting yet because of the rain.
Ah, but you asked about adventure. It's not adventure, but it is pure pleasure for me to sit outside with the sun on my face, watch the shifting white clouds in a beautiful blue sky, and listen to the various sounds of the country...... or sit out there and watch the twinkling stars in the black sky and listen to the night sounds of the country.


Spring is here, it's beautiful outside. But let's sit on the computer and insult each other!
