The brisket sandwich has never let me down. Could use a hotter sauce.
It’s right on route 9 going west into Ware. Small place with a couple of tables.
I never ride past it.

First there was all the heavy rain for days at a time.
Then there was the oppressive 100* heat day after day when it wasn’t raining.
Last night the pasture in front of my house was covered in funky blanket of haze from the fires in the Pacific northwest.

What the is going on?

I hear you, this has been the worst July weather ever! I tried riding yesterday but it was oppressive.

! Some of the nicest riding weather so far.
I’m home taking care of a family member who just had surgery.
Can’t win.

I’m on the road in Ohio, meeting Parrothead at Mid-Ohio tomorrow. By the time I get home I’ll have done over a thousand miles this week. That, after being laid up over six weeks!

Just back from a 40 mile ride. Perfect temp, lots of sand, few puddles, lot of school busses out taking it slow but I always figure God put me behind these school busses and slow drivers for a reason. Perhaps to slow me down or avoid a situation ahead.
