Cliff and I left home around nine this morning, thinking perhaps we might ride to Versailles and maybe say hello to some of his relatives.
Once on the road, we realized we hadn't dressed warmly enough; I had my light motorcycle jacket on without the liner, so it was pretty drafty. Cliff had nothing over his short-sleeved shirt. Still, we figured as the day wore on, it would warm up.
We took blacktop roads we'd never traveled before, and half the time we didn't quite know where we were. We did know that as long as we went east and south, we'd end up close to our destination.
However, when we came out near Sedalia, we decided not to go any further away from home. It was noon, and would have taken another hour to drive to Versailles. And I was cold!
Sedalia has a beautiful city park we love, so we had our picnic there before turning toward home. By the time we were on the road again, the temperature had climbed to a pleasant 75 degrees.
