A month in lockdown plus our week off for Spring Break and where are we? The Lemon in Chief is now in manic pursuit of opening up and yesterday even started chanting “LIBERTY, LIBERTY” almost bordering on inciting civil violence in 3 states…… mark my words this will not end well!

Beyond belief!!

Some people, fortunately, have a different idea of the great outdoors

Be like Bob

Meanwhile ……..     what led up to this saga?

Well here he is

Maybe you do


Well, while the lockdown continues it looks like Noah will have to continue with the “Uber Ark” as others have already found gainful employment.

and now onto today’s news ……midday, and the sun is peeking through, roses beginning to leaf up and the grass is coming out of winter hibernation. Some clean up has been done and hopefully it will start warming up and I can spend some leisure & pleasure time out there doing some of the early gardening tasks, and maybe get in the workshop and tart up the trials bikes again.

Up that Waterfall

….. and out for the clean

But before any of that work begins I’m still pushing those pedals to get around the planet, and although at this time of the year it can be very easy to sit and do nothing I’m pushing myself to get out there and try and hit my personal targets.

Sunday, not quite so nice, looks a little stormy! Set off and 6 miles in it starts to rain but I can see the house ahead so arrive as it starts coming down. Doesn’t last long and the mission starts over with another 8 miles as a big black cloud arrives and now some heavy hail to add to the fun. When it dries up a bit out for the last session and finish the day with 22.66 and 122 miles in the last 6 days! Not bad in winter conditions for the 73 year old.

Getting there!

…….. as I said he couldn’t open the bottle

your hands AREN’T big enough!
