Warming Up

It was 48 degrees (Fahrenheit) this morning when I took off. I managed to find the missing leg warmers in the pile of bicycle-related paraphernalia hiding in the garage, so my legs were protected from the bitter cold.

A motorcycle pulled up next to me at the left turn red light, turned out it was someone from work. I got to work before them, I don't know how that worked!

The sky is strikingly pretty in the morning, and in the evening, too. I really should pack the camera along.

No problems with car-people while bicycling, but driving to the grocery store after work I was stuck behind an SUV going 25 mph in a 45. Then they turned into the grocery store without signaling. Typical, just typical!

While backing out of the parking space I nearly hit someone trying to sneak by. I didn't note if they had their lights on (it was quite twilight), but totally did not see them. One would think they could have waited a bit...

Leg warmers. I guess they never go out of style. Sorry that I've been out of the loop. Cool pic. Went to Disneyland on Sat/Sun with the help of John's tickets that he got when he signed us up to listen to a time share presentation at Lawrence Welk. He didn't know that Disney tixs & a night's stay were involved. He initially wanted the Jake Peavy bobblehead and 4 Padre game tixs. We also got 2 movie passes as well. Anyway, Disneyland was great. Crowded as heck on Sat/Sun night. We didn't get there till Sat evening bz Jacob had his end of the season t-ball party. Sunday morning and early afternoon was really nice. Got to ride a bunch of rides without having to wait too long. The evenings were packed bz everyone wanted to see the Christmas tree lighting and on Saturday they had some choir sing. Jacob was lucky and was chosen with about 23 other kids out of the audience for the Jedi Training Showl. Once I get my butt in gear, I'll forward pics.
