Look up there! It's broasted, no it's roasted, no it's broiled! Oh hell, just look at the house behind you, the midcentury detail will take you back to whatever sort of food preparation is most evocative to you!
Sunday Morning delivered terrific weather, on the face of it, but we were served, again, a relentless wind that fluctuated between 10 and 20 mph. A potential risk of the one way journey is such, riding into the merciless wind with no respite of a tailwind. But alas, how can I complain when my strong friends insisted on my draft for hours at a time?

Sometimes, riding through Wisconsin, one gets the impression that life must be idyllic out here. But then we think of all the things that folks have to put up with in the country, and remember why all those beautiful farm buildings are falling down and all those old German houses are boarded up or on the market.
Our final ten miles or so. A relief, at last, to be shaded from the wind on a path heading into the downtown area. It's sunny, the water is sparkling, folks are out enjoying the amazing weather. It's near 5:00 and we're feeling great. Anticipating a shower, rest, and dinner out with friends. Who could be so lucky?
|There they go...my friends.|
