Works for me. I need to be in Morgantown by 3 or 3:30 so I won't be able to stay much past 1.

Where are you pitching a tent? I am hedging and pacing the floor wanting to run down and back just to give momma rella a hug, and see you. If I leave work at noon, and push hard, I could prolly pitch a tent in "the grassy knowl" next to rella's by midnight...... and I could sleep till you wake my dead ass up.....

You might want to let her know if you're planning on doing this, or you may spend the next day picking rock salt or bird shot out of your backside.

No tent. Riding over to eat/converse, make a BBQ sauce transfer, then head back home.

Sucks, but understand. Grown-up tasks around here are on-going. Hope to catch up at another time.

Hell! That's my morning routine. What's the problem?

Seriously, really hope the pooch is okay. Makes me ill just thinking about any of our critters getting sick.

Actually thought my daughter's dog was gonna be owl food last night. Was out late on the back porch having a cig and the dogs were wondering around the yard. Outta no where a huge owl swooped down and headed for Gerrard (daughter's dog). He was about 3 feet off the dog's back and guess it had second thoughts since the dog is pretty big, and veered off. Needless to say I shuffled both of them inside just in case the owl grew a pair changed it's mind.

Sorry you can't make it, but will say hello to Jeaneace and Rella for you.

Bike (Connie) checked out, gassed up, and Mike's BBQ sauce safely secured in the trunk.

Since this is going to be a very long day, decided on the Connie purely for creature comfort.

Will probably run through Helvetia on Rte 46 (and subsequent routes) on out to Rte. 20 and south to Rella's. Altho' the Hacker Valley Road knocks off a lot of miles and time, decided to pass. Did that before on the Connie a few years ago and it was not fun.

See ya''l tomorrow.

Great day!

Looks like y'all have a great day for riding. Be safe and say "Hi" to Rella for me please. Oh, and let's see some photos so I can be there vicariously.
