Thoughts all over the place and kept hitting roadblocks with work, so went out to spin the wheels in the oppressive heat to reset things. They’re putting a subdivision in on the ridge behind my house that overlooks the river flats. Some folks will have some very nice – albeit probably pricey – views. Kind of bums me out that the woods I’ve rolled around in for years will soon be populated. Fully aware of my hypocrisy, it bums me out see them mulching full grown trees to clear lots. Sigh. Progress.
Rolled around the ‘Backyard’ a bit. No one had eaten my Twizzler, so I did.
Had to mail a US tax form. Good excuse as any for a bike ride. Emma pointed out that I could just put the letter in the mailbox at the end of our road instead of riding all the way to the post office. I know this. Kids. Ran across some action on the trail where there were some beavers doing what beavers do. Thing that impressed me is that this spot is a long way up a steep bank from the river. Do beavers know how to rope climb?
Had the idea to set up the Mac outside and stream a movie for the fam. Was fun – makes me think I should find a bigger screen tv or projector and have some CABC ‘bike-in’ movie nights. The feature this evening? The Triplets of Belleville. Very good.
Went out for an MTB ride in Penniac at the Hadley trail system. We were on the clock and Andrew flatted so was a short ride, but good to get out none-the-less. Nice light in the Corrective Action Bicycle Club clubhouse for pre-ride coffee.
