It's a great day for a motorcycle ride

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.

Beautiful pictures, once again call me 'green' (with envy).   I'm so happy for you and Cliff ... being able to spend this time of your lives creating wonderful memories together.  Since I retired three years ago my husband has become too ill for us to get out much, except for our trips to medical facilities.  I love to read about your adventures!  I do realize, too, that you both have worked very hard to create the life you do enjoy today!  You deserve every day of it!    Judy

I enjoyed the pictures of yalls trip out and about. :) My younger sister was out with her significant other on the bike yesterday too. It was a good day for it. I love the hibiscus. I bought one of those very kind at Lowes and it has produced some very beautiful blooms like the one in your picture. Have a nice Sunday. Kelly

Nice ride ... chilly but nice enough to keep going for a little bit.  The park is lovely.
