Thankfully, the drama was kept to a minimum around here over the weekend. Although, the single dramatic event was, in fact, quite large. The 100+ year old Hickory tree that shades the entire house decided to jettison one of it's large branches...directly onto my roof. Fortunately, upon inspection, it fell lightly, if there is such a thing when talking about a 50 foot section of tree falling on your house.
I spent Friday morning cutting what I could off the roof in an effort to lighten the load, as the meaty part of the is still connected to the tree about 20 feet above. The damage, thus far, is minimal, and easily repaired. Hopefully the tree service will be here before lunch to remove the remainder.
I did get a decent ride in on Saturday. 2 hours on the CX bike
including the singletrack. I got out early, before the heat came up.
It was quite nice in the woods @ 0800.
After the ride, my cross-training was dragging out the pile of limbs that #2 son and I assembled Friday morning. That was fun...
Then Ken brought his new whip over for me to build.
Sunday broke with cloudy skies, and the want to roll the new Kenda Happy Mediums on some dirt, so that's what happened. Given the fact that I was on my feet most of the previous day, I didn't feel too bad. I even made the effort to, well...make a couple of efforts.
There was also a Toby Porter sighting! What the WHAAA?
2 hours later...back at Service Course.
Now to enjoy the few remaining moments of relative peace and quiet before Junior Management returns from their Corporate Retreat.
(look for a review of the Happy Mediums in the coming days)
