I was expecting my brother Barry over with his dirt bike around noon for a dirt bike ride up in the hills.
A walk checking out a slide
Good little walk
I was leading and had to make a sharp left turn to get onto this road, but the back tire spun out and I came to a stop on this little hill and couldn’t hold the bike up so it and me went down. I rolled off the bike and into a summer sault and got up laughing. Fortunate for me they taught us a lot of tumbling in school on rainy days as automatic rolling when falling really helps keep from getting hurt. Barry had just pulled up as I rolled off in front of him.
A bit of blood
I did suffer a little blood on the right elbow and realized I’d likely suffer for this tonight, but what the hey, it’s all part of dirt bike riding which really puts an older body in shape if you can stand it. :O)
I picked my self up and got the bike back up too. No damage to the bike which is a good thing as the bike is another brother’s who reads this blog. :O) I ride the bike to keep his battery charged up as he’s not been riding it for awhile now. Older age doesn’t always let one do what they want to do.
At the top
We rode around some more and made it back to the over look area where I was going to take a break as I was beat by now. But my bother was hot in all his gear and it was a rather warm day so we headed on down the hill towards home.
Barry took off for home and I went in for a nap as I was pretty beat. It’s not like the olden days when I could ride a dirt bike all day without getting tired out.
Chickens out to graze
New peeps hatching out
I knew some new chicks were about due so I checked the nesting box that was due and sure enough there were some new chicks in there. I counted three so far but some more eggs might still hatch out.
I was walking around my orchard eating some plums off the trees when I noticed a lot of buzzing up above me.
I spent some time chair hopping and walking around the yard just before it got dark and that pretty much was my day.
Nice day and I got some good exercise.
