It doesn’t matter how old we get, sometimes it’s just plain fun to play hooky!
I love riding motorcycle in autumn but we’ve have had a very wet & cool October so our fall riding has been limited. It seems like the best days weather-wise have been during the week when we’re working.
This past Wednesday was forecasted to be another cold, rainy day. However, in the morning, I had to run an errand across campus and it was a beautifully warm and sunny indian summer kind of day. The weather man sure missed this one!
I was thinking to myself how great it would be if we could just go for a ride but knew Dan was busy with a bunch of different projects. Not sure if it was mental telepathy or the fact that we’ve been married long enough to think alike, but lo and behold, as I came back in my office there was a message waiting for me saying “Take the afternoon off and let’s go riding.” Wow, twist my arm!
Now, before you think I’m somekind of slacker, I didn’t actually play hooky. I was all legal-like and submitted my absence request for what is called a “personal day” which can be taken anytime on a moments notice. I couldn’t think of a better reason to take a half of one than what was probably going to be the last warm bike ride of the season.
We headed northwest to JoDaviess County. The trees were at their peak. The ride did not disappoint, the views were stunning.
You want to see pictures? Why, of course I’ll share them with you. I thought you’d never ask.
