This is the third day in a row we've ridden the motorcycle. I packed a picnic lunch in one of the new thermal lunch boxes we bought, put some Diet Cokes on ice in the bottom of it, and we were off.
It's about an hours drive to Knob Noster State Park, which is where we had our lunch. It was a perfect day for a ride, and we saw dozens of motorcycles out and about.
As you can see by the pictures, the state park is lovely, even this time of year.
And now, poor Cliff has to go to work. Flylady has probably disowned me this week. I'm a morning person, so by the time we get back from riding, I'm ready for the couch. Today the bed didn't even get made, which is unusual.
We got home and had a scare: Cliff took off his helmet, felt for his hearing aid, and discovered it was gone. As I remember, there is a guarantee on it, even against loss; but we'd have to pay around $300 deductable. Not bad, I suppose, considering it cost $1,800. But we were both just sick about it, figuring he'd lost it when taking off his helmet at the state park. We came inside ready to call the Hearing Center to see about the insurance, only to find he'd taken the hearing aid out to clean it this morning and had neglected to put it back in his ear. Normally I'd have noticed he wasn't hearing well, but with the microphone/speaker system in our helmets, he hears me just fine without any help; and we did most of our talking while riding.
So, our day wasn't ruined after all.
