I have started the day with a little bike riding, and I am just using the bike for transportation today. I have racked up about 5 miles so far and I will do some more riding as the day goes on, and hopefully get up around 10 miles by the end of the day. Feels good to be back riding around on the bike and the knees are not fussing yet, a good sign.
My neighbor, a nice fellow, ask me today if I knew much about bikes and I said “a little what’s up?” He then told me that while riding his bike last night that it stopped pedaling and would just spin. So we took a look ………. the chain was missing. LOL, he is an older guy like myself and I think that maybe he has not been around bikes since he was a kid, I thought maybe for a minute he was just pulling my leg, but he was not. He told me where he was when it happen (just down the road a bit) and I took a ride down and picked up his chain, it had a broken link. As we get older and more unfamiliar with things from our pass, it is strange the things we will over look. It is much like some silly thing I would do, LOL.
I think I will get out and ride around on the bike a little more. 2:30 pm update: I took a couple more rides on the bike with the last one being a good one. A total of a little over 15 miles. When I got back from the last ride I had one of the better stretches …………. that I have had for a spell now anyways. All and all, a good day for exercise.

I am going to play around with Flickr as a photo sharing place and this is just a test link. I am not sure how this will turn out ~~~~ This is a Snip I took of the Flickr page. It was OK in the Preview, only thing I don’t like is that Flickr always links back to its own page, so if you click on the picture, it will take you to my Flickr page …………. I think, LOL. Photobucket is doing that a lot of late too, seems like sometimes it links to the blank page (like I want) and sometimes it takes you back to their page to see the picture.
I am going to test it another way here with a bigger picture, to see how that turns out. Here goes.
Looks like I can make it big enough to see it plenty well and that will leave the readers where there is no need to click on the picture to see it, maybe this is the way to go.
The weather is starting to warm up a little but it is still pretty pleasant as far as temperature goes I think, It is just below 90° outside and just over inside. For me that is not too bad out here in the west where the air is very dry, making the temperature feel a lot less than it is.
Enough chat for today, everyone have a nice day.
