So, I post this with a bit of sadness. A few weeks ago I had a meeting with a peacock. You read that correctly: a peacock. The good news is that no birds were harmed while riding my Scout Sixty. The bad news is that my motorcycle and I had a close encounter with the road of the worst kind. We are both fine and, hopefully, repairs won’t take too long.
Taken at the end of a beautiful day along the banks of the Illinois River.
A breezy, sunny, gorgeous afternoon + a silly grandson + rectangle donuts + a beautiful park = lots of fun.
I started my bicycle ride later than I wanted to, but, it turned out okay. I was able to see the beginning of a beautiful day. We’ll get back to New York soon. (Click on the image for a larger view.)
Sorry for my absence from WordPress land. I have been focusing on finishing up my second Master’s degree, getting a nasty upper respiratory cold and, a bit of travel as well. This was taken on a certain bridge that I finally ascended.
We enjoyded a night in Chicago to celebrate our anniversary. Here is the view from our room of historic 4th Presbyterian Church in Chicago.
And just like that…winter arrives. November has been an unusually warm month here in the mid-west, but winter made a beautiful, grand entrance today. This is the church where I serve as a pastor.
