|Mom and dad at Carol's house.|
I read this morning that one of my friends lost his mother over the weekend and I was flooded with thoughts of Mom. I often say that I was blessed that both my wife and mother loved me and they liked each other. For a good part of her last years, Mom lived near us and I would go over and see her regularly. I did all her shopping and ran errands for her. My brother got to share the last couple of years with Mom and I'm pretty sure that he enjoyed her as I did. There is a little oil royalty money coming in and every time a check is spent I think about how Mom would want me to spend it on other people.
The days are getting a little shorter and the morning temps here in the Heartland are getting cooler. Not long back we would ride early to avoid the heat and soon we will wait until later on in the day so it will be warmer. It is never perfect, well... A couple of times each year it is but what's a little sweat when you are having fun. Much rather drip a little sweat than have to wear a coat and try to keep the body the right temp.

Better Run - Pears to pick and perhaps circles with pedals to make.
