    Summer Country Ride

    Freaking Rains are not stopping and the heat/humidity isn't either...don't believe I have ever seen a summer where we are still mowing the grass two or so times per week, this late in July. I did get out in the south part of Corn County {Mercer} and around the lake....where I stopped by the State Park and watched Montezuma mowing grass in the park forest and lawns....a never ending chore this time ....

    I also stopped by the old Ohio State Patrol building where I took my Motor Cycle License Riding test back in the spring of 1974....they no longer do that at this location, but the course is still lined on the pavement....

    Glad you could get out. Have to stay in shape for Big Bend, right?
    Your weather sure has been bizarre.
    A distant cousin in Midland Mn reported seeing fish swimming on her sidewalk last week.

    Makes you want to jump in the water and cool off on those hot humid days.



    I took my motorcycle test on a similar type course in 1983 ish.
