And . . .
The son of a friend was hit last night. A car made a left turn in front of him. He came away from the crash with a broken leg. His mother was very pleased her $800 investment in protective gear paid off. I'm grateful it had the outcome it did. I'm told he's eager to heal and ride again. He's mother says she'll believe it when he tells her this after the drugs wear off.
I don't know if it is original with Dom over at Redleg's Rides, but he is where I heard it. He says, "Ride as if you are invisible and made of glass." Truth.
I'm always grateful when I make it to my destination safely. Today I was even more grateful.
And . . .
It was a beautiful day to be Downtown.
I spent some time in Citygarden. It surprises me how after spending hours and hours and hours in this place I still catch a sight I've not seen before.
Of course, watching the people and spying on strangers is always fun.
And the children and the sprinklers. Oh my!
The only bad thing about being outside is having to go back inside.
I would of rather stayed in the park and listen to the peonies sing.
- 67F/19C with a few clouds for the ride Downtown.
- 81F/27C, calm, bright, and delicious for the home safe.
