Winter is not even officially here yet and already I am looking at how many days off Spring is. As of today, Dec. 6th, Spring is 103 days off. I am anxiously awaiting. I think I can safely say that the only two things I like about winter is cold water out of the faucet and the grass stops growing so I don’t have to mow it. There is absolutely nothing else good I can say about it. Wait … there is one more thing … it kills off pesky insects.
I try to keep riding thruout the winter but I certainly don’t like it as far as dealing with wither weather. And the older I get the less I like it. Back when I was in my early 60s I could dress in shorts and a short sleeve shirt when it was in the 40s and it felt good. By the time I was in my late 60s the shorts were still ok but not the short sleeve shirt. Now that I am in my mid 70s there is no way I could dress like that and be comfortable. As I age things are changing and the changes are not welcome changes.
I used to hate dealing with hot summertime temperatures. At 80 degrees I was already miserable and anything above 80 was miserable for me. But now in my mid 70s I can handle the 80s okay. I am still miserable in the 90s however.
Anyway, I am ready for Spring weather … just 103 days away. 103 days … that is a very long time. One day at a time … that is the secret to getting thru it. Oh Lord help me … one day at a time. One hundred three days. I can do it! Meanwhile I am going to do my best to …
