the same story….again?

I may be becoming the old man who tells the same story again and again.

Now, of course, the reason I tell it may be that I think that it’s a tremendous story….and my memory doesn’t help me avoid repetition.

It’ll be “Hey!! Did you hear the one about?….”

and, then…..a couple of months….or weeks…or, if things really degrade, a couple of hours or even minutes, later….”Hey!! Did you hear the one about?”.

Maybe if the story is good enough, it will be worth sitting through the endless repetition.

Hopefully, the people who are still around me have kind hearts and patient, willing ears.

Anyway….a long introduction ….because I can’t remember if I’ve already blogged about this video.

It’s a good one….so maybe repetition is OK.

Maybe something good is worth repeating? Over….and over…..and over…..and ….over?

Maybe my motto should be “just keep the pedals spinning”….even if it’s to go somewhere that you’ve visited before.

It’s better to think something good over and over than to never think at all….or to only dwell on an endless loop of negativity.

Just keep the pedals spinning……

Big burn pile over at the property yesterday.

Good that a big pile can go down to ash so quickly…..and that the thing that’s burning is of my choosing.

It’s a drag when the fire takes something unexpected.

That would not be good.

All these bike touring videos…..

Something must be trying to float up from the shallow pool of my subconscious….some longing….or …..something.

What am I thinking?

That, while the summer breeze is blowing cool in the Carolinas, it might be nice to get out and spin the pedals some…..see something new….figure out how to tow the kids in carts and tagalong bikes to someplace interesting…..maybe a campsite by the dunes or a shaded forest cabin?

Other people have done it.

Surely, “other people” have done it.

What’s the difference between “other people” and us?

Just a willingness to see the possible?

Or….are they just a whole lot smarter?
