The people who've seen this photo have asked, "Is that real?"
Yup. Passed him today on the bike. I didn't really need the sign to convince me to refrain from jumping the fence to pet him.
I went biking with our neighbors, finally.... hard-core roadies (in their 60's) who bike at least 3 days a week, and I've never been able to go b/c I was working at the daycare or, earlier, training for the marathon. Today the daycare was closed and I had no responsibilities, and we went for a WONDERFUL 30-mile ride.
I AM SO HAPPY!!! I had such a good time!! I saw Texas hill country, and Texas farm country, something other than my urban/suburban bike commute. No deadline, didn't have to be anywhere by any time! A PLEASURE ride!!!!! What a novelty!!
They're going out tomorrow with the Austin Riders Cycling Club, and I'm going to feed the livestock early and be ready to go by 7:45. We're planning the 45-mile route (there's a choice.) I've never been on a group ride! The most I've ever ridden with is 2 other people. This is going to be fun!
