After supper ride

Yes, here in the Midwest we call the evening meal supper and not dinner.  We mostly call the midday meal lunch but sometimes the noon meal is called dinner especially if it’s on Sunday, then it’s definitely Sunday dinner.  Breakfast is breakfast no matter when.  :)  Just a quick lesson on rural Midwestern culture.  :)  I digress.

So tonight we took our first “Supper’s is done, what the heck, let’s go for a quick ride” ride.  We probably weren’t gone 45 minutes but it just plain felt good!  Two summers ago we did this quite often.  Last summer it was just too darned hot.  Yes, I am a fair weather rider.  I don’t like feeling as though I am riding into a blow torch.  Tonight was just about perfect temps.  No need for a jacket but a coolness to the air as it blew past.  Hopefully this is the first of many this summer.

The sun was setting beautifully.  You’d never know that we’re supposed to be pounded with severe storms in a few hours from the looks of this sky would you?

  1. I'm not much on those blazing hot days either - maybe I need to move to the mountains!
