Dead Donuts

It was a dark and stormy Sunday morning.

Well, not stormy, and not so dark, but SOME headlights and streetlights were still on at six in the morning when I headed out, after consuming a measuring cup of Albertson's Bran Flakes.

I rode east for 1.5 hours (what's that in metric?), then I stopped, snapped this pic, then turned around and headed back.

This is rather near Alpine Blvd. and Dunbar Lane. A good place to turn around, as it is the TOP of a hill.

Heading up (west-ish) the little (depending on how one is feeling!) grade on Olde Highway 80 after the Los Coches intersection, I came upon this HORRIBLE sight!!

Some fiend dumped this poor Long John on the side of the road. So sad!

The waste, the waste.

It was covered in ants, so I was not tempted.

Here's something I ran across while researching donuts, the Brown Bobby. Never heard of it, but it looks good! I feel deprived that my mother did not have one of these machines. Although she DID have a waffle iron, for which I am grateful!

I stopped at that memorial I keep mentioning. I made note of the name, it is Ralph Simpson. The year of death is 2004. I can't find anything on the web, so the circumstances are a mystery to me.

Great blog! I found you blog by trying a web search for my own. I ride as well and one thing I think I'll do in the future is bring a camera. Everything goes by so fast, sometimes I should stop and take a picture (smell the roses).
