Our weather continues to have multiple personalities so far this year. That in turn is relayed to my RA having multiple personalities this year. That once again is transferred into me having multiple personalities so far this year. Life will be much better when it warms up and stays warm. It gets old feeling pretty good one day only to wake up to frigid temps, snow and sleet the next day and barely be able to get out of bed and walk to the living room.
I was able to get out and ride yesterday with Greg and Randall. I rode 174 miles but I'm paying dearly for it today. We rode out to Oark and I stopped at the old Herrods Creek abandoned bridge just off of AR215. My grandad had a sawmill close to the old bridge back in the 1940's. My dad and uncles worked at the sawmill and hauled RR ties all over the area. I wished that dad had some old photos of the mill here. Last year I drove him and mom over through here and I guess it brought back memories. I knew grandad had 2 different sawmills but never knew one of them was where I have been riding since I was 19 years old.
