So, the reason for pushing out a strange post last Thursday was that I was getting in a car and headed to Ohio for my son's (The Boy's) wedding. I knew I was going into some serious radio silence. The wedding was my highest priority, and we were leaving early enough that I had time to squirt out a quick post, get in an hour spin for some junk miles, and get in the car for a seven hour drive.
Get there, take a few moments to relax with The Boy and Nicole, head over on foot in the brisk Ohio April weather to the Hawk's Nest for food and beer... and we're in bed by 9:30PM. Somewhat shamefacedly, but whatever. Sometimes I feel my age.
Wake up, discuss wedding day logistics (you know, the non-romantic non-feelings part of a wedding), head out for a ride on the Thomas Evans Trail, an old rail-to-trail path that goes from Newark to Johnston. Make a few navigational decisions, end up where at the east end with a phone that went from 80% battery to straight dead from the cold, shove my phone down the front of my bibs, turn around and hope I can remember all the turns... because... wedding.
Headwind the whole way back, but some life came back to my phone, so these:
So, yeah. Pardon my last post, but I had my own world on my mind and the last few weeks have been a bit overwhelming.
Looking forward to being underwhelming in the near future.
