A Name Change?

Yes, I rode to work today.

And . . .

I got sprinkled on. It was almost a complete surprise. I've lived here long enough to know when it gets muggy, a little pop-up shower can manifest. Still, it took me off guard.

If you look close you can see the telltale splatters of  the sprinkle I rode to work in. I'm glad it didn't became a shower.
Later I talked to Vulcan Rider and got more surprising news. He told to say my goodbyes to his Vulcan. He's getting a new bike. Alas, it will not be a Vulcan. This will mean a name change. I'm told Prince rode a Vulcan in Purple Rain. Perhaps I will need to rechristen him "The Deputy Formerly Known as Vulcan Rider". Hmmm, a little long.

I also discovered a small Beetle infestation near the Courthouse.

Funnily enough, the man checking out the convertible later walked over and got into the white one. I couldn't help but wonder if they just happened to park so close to one another. That seems nearly too much of a coincidence. Alas, I'll never know. I'm really glad there wasn't the middle generation present. As far as I'm concerned they could have skipped that one entirely.

It was a warm ride home, but thankfully the humidity had broke. It was plenty comfortable as long as I was moving.

  • 76F/24C, humid with a few sprinkles for the ride to work.
  • 92F/33C and partly cloudy for the ride home.


  1. I am still surprised your lows are so warm.

    Did Deputy Vulcan at least tell you what bike he is getting, or will it be a surprise?

  2. Yeah, this area holds the heat well :^)

    There a couple of possibilities. He has an offer down on one, but if that doesn't work out he's going another way. Stay tuned.
