Quick and Dirty

Hey sicko, get your mind out of the gutter. This is about bike racing. And some other stuff.

A thorough braising

Thursday my knees felt better so Lisa and I went for a bike ride. Me on my new Kona Queen Ann and Lisa on her brand new Bianchi Volpe. This is a huge upgrade for Lisa in the way of bikes, her current bike is my old green Stumpjumper from about 1998. Being the ambitious person she is, Lisa thought we should ride up to the Buttermilks road (about 1500 ft elevation gain). Sparkling sun, 80º weather, a strong tailwind, blooming rabbit brush and twinkling aspens made the ride very truly enjoyable. We stopped for a while in a copse of trees near a babbling brook for a break then rolled down the hill back home.

On the way home we stopped and picked apples and pears in a friends yard.

That's not me, it's Lisa dressed as me.

Then we went to Keough Hot Springs. This place hasn't changed much since the 1920's. I think it might still be on its original coat of paint. You can swim in the 85º warm pool, or braise in the 104º hot pool.

To top off a nearly perfect day we made a gourmet pizza dinner followed by fresh apple pie.

Couldn't help myself. Lisa had a drawer full of aprons from her Grandmother and a fabulous 50's stove.
