a long, long ride
I left the house around 8 o'clock this morning, figuring I'd get my ride in before it turned too hot. But I made a mistake I haven't made for quite some time: I waited until I was getting sore and tired before turning back toward home. So of course, I was almost unable to walk by the time I got home at 11 AM. I find I can handle a two-hour ride very well, but anything longer really gets to my old bones. Anyhow, I enjoyed the scenery on a road where I don't often ride. When we got back, I cooled Blue off with the garden hose, and he seemed to appreciate that. Cliff and the neighbor boys got another 56 bales of hay put in the barn while I was riding, so they were tired too.
