Nov-24: Make Room For Turkey

Virtually the same route as on Thanksgiving morning last year.

Fewer partants this year as only Ricochet Robert, BobH and I "signed up".

Bob and Robert had met at about 0730 and ridden to the start together.
With only the three of us expected, and everyone present and ready to ride,
We started the ride about 10 minutes early.

Robt and Bob immediately resumed the deep conversation(s) they had started on the way to PUE.
I concluded that they didn't a third party messing up the conversation dynamics,
So I rode ahead and sang songs as I made them up,
Or sang the notes as I made them up, or borrowed from unknown songs.

Eventually, I backed off my pace, and the three of us rode the last 15-miles or so together.
We continued the guy-conversations.
However, I could not tell you one single thing that we talked about.
Not because they are forbidden topics,
But because I simply do not recall.

I doubt that Robert or BobH recalls any of their subjects, either.

Great day for a ride around the lake.
Early on, crossing the lake on Old Weaver Trail Rd,
The lake was as a mirror.
Too bad all the leaves were already off the trees.

Later, crossing the lake on Cheek Rd,
There were ripples on the surface,
Too small to refer to it as a "chop".

Great quickie ride.
