Alzheimer's, or something else?

Now that the snow finally melted, the sun stayed out all day and the temps topped 50, the wife and I rolled the V2K out, left her 900 in, going to ride to Erwin,TN to feed carrots to three horses who hang out under the McDonald's billboard alongside I-26.

AFTER rolling it out, she hopped on, I just KNEW I was forgetting something: my helmet.




It sucks to get old

Northeast Tx, hmmmm. That's a good 12 hours (or more) ride from here in northeast TN. Just how many carrots per horse are we talking?

Hi Mark
I have the solution... Keep the carrots in your helmet!

Now where did I leave my bike??

As I'm reading your post, it's been some 2 hours since we got back, still have my do rag on my head, forgot to take it off and leave it in the saddlebag, and I'm only 61. Maybe I need to be looking at trikes soon.

You can bring as many carrots as you want! My "welfare" horses aren't picky, and don't know when to step away! Lol
Oh, and helmets are optional here, so if you forget where you put it...

Hi Mark
61? You're just a kid... I have a few years on you. I'm looking forward to a sidecar or "Leg Up" training wheels! But not yet...

Thought you were going to say you forgot your wife. Now that we would understand.

Uh, hmm, how can I put this. If I forgot my wife, I would not still be around to share this incident with ya'll. Trust me, dynamite DOES come in small packages. I know, I married one.

I know that one! Isn't it amazing that such fire can come is such a little package? Sheesch. However, after near 34 years I guess she's going to keep me anyway...
