I had intentions of riding yesterday, but it started raining before Cliff and I got halfway through our daily walk, and then the winds were so awfully strong the rest of the day that I didn't fight it.
Cliff sleeps until at least 10 o'clock: that's six hours sleep for him; and since I get up shortly after he gets home from work at 4, I have lots of time for myself in the mornings. I noticed when I took Sadie out this morning that it was unseasonably warm; time for a ride at daybreak!
At 7:30 A.M., Blue's shadow had long legs.
I took it easy on poor Blue, since he's bound to be out of shape; I haven't ridden much this winter. We made it to the Missouri River banks.
Blue saw something moving up ahead.

I arrived home with time to spare.
