Ian and I went out for a ride this morning, and I can assure you that I did forget some of it. We rode down the capital city trail, to Collingwood Children’s farm and Abbotsford Convent. Not before adjusting my seat one million times. Or getting off the bike to walk across the street with it.
It was a lovely ride though, some of it quite hilly. I don’t know how to do the gears so you can go uphill; can any of you bikeophiles out there tell me? Or do you just need freaking strong legs and lungs?
I asserted my superior physical fitness (tongue firmly in cheek) to my husband, but he lost me at the end….he still has not gotten home, am a bit worried now….
Collingwood kiddy farm was great fun, there was the Rat Fanciers Society (yes, not shitting you, that is the name) present, and they bought their rats with them. Rats are quite cute and don’t bite. They like to sit on your shoulder. We also saw goats, a pony, sheep and several bizarre breeds of chickens. All good fun.
Now, am at home, decamped in front of the heater, waiting for Hubby. ….
addit 1630 – found him – he was out looking for me. Salutary lesson to not show athletic prowess, and take mobile phones.!!!!
addit 1948: All my old facebook buddies – I still get the fb messages emailed to me, so I have been hearing everything.
