I spent 8 years as a sailor in the U.S. Navy but I never heard one of the sirens that are said to call out to sailors. I reckon I am glad no one else on the ships heard that enchanting music and singing voice bidding them to come. Now that I am a landlubber I am hearing a voice. Yeppur, my trike is calling me and I must go. That seems to be very real and applicable for me.

How about you? It is just mighty hard to resist. Hey, the truth is … I don’t want to resist. I truly enjoy every ride and look forward to the next one.

And it is not just my trike that is calling me. Places where I ride beckon me year around …

And seeing various sites, especially wild life, while I am out riding beckon me …

Well, to be honest I haven’t seen this one yet but I would like to. I don’t know if he is just taking a nap or if he croaked.


One might even see a rare sight like a Post Turtle …

I still haven’t figured out how they get up there. They always look so helpless on top of that post so I always help them down if I do come across them. In fact, I try to get all of the critters off of the trail or road so that they don’t get injured. Nope, ifin’ I were to stay home I would miss seeing something like this.

In fact, one just never knows what they might come across. I sure would not want to stay home and miss out on seeing something like this …

On second thought maybe I would be better off safe at home.

How bout this one? Now it looks safe enough and very intriguing. I mean you just don’t see something like this everyday …


This triker would probably be a lot safer encounter out on a trail than a lot of folks I encounter out there. One thing is for sure … they could not be any worse.

There is nothing on TV I want to see anyway. I would much rather be out enjoying fresh air and God’s wonderful creation. And I know I surely need the exercise.

Yep, I hear my trike calling out to me. Now if it would just warm up a little I would be on my way. I feel I am really missing out not responding to that beckoning call. I hear it now …  Come Steve and …


FREE GIFT awaits you!

  1. Hi Steve .. 1st and foremost, tanks for your service .. I spent 22 years on active duty (US Army Combat Engineer).. I am a fan of your blogs and look forward to seeing your postings .. your advice is always welcome

  2. It was cold and windy today but I heeded that beckoning voice. And yes, I thoroughly enjoyed my ride despite the weather. I was bundled up enough that I didn’t even hardly notice the 23 mph wind gusting to 35 mph.

  3. Always a nice commentary Steve! I enjoyed the photos, especially the turtle. I think there must be a mean turtlepost prankster out there just messin’ with ’em.
    Happy New Year!

  4. Thanks Steve. It’s a gift of motivation for the New Year. My trike calls—but I admit I don’t always respond
