Saturday HC Ride

The HC ride had a nice turn out this morning. We started with eight stalwart lads. I heard someone discuss the temperature -- they either said 68 degrees or 2, I couldn't quite hear them clearly, because my baklava blocked my hearing.

We stopped at a coffee shop in St. Paul. I had my first cup of coffee in a month. Wow! It was delicious.

This is Lake Nokomis. The little black box on the lake is an ice fishing house. That looks fun. Do you sense sarcasm?

When winter is over, this bike will need some serious maintenance. Notice rust around the lugs and bottom bracket shell.

Sitting in a box fishing. I'm trying to think of why? I saw a guy on tv eating razor blades once.

We ride bikes in the winter. To each thier own I suppose.

I like ice fishing, but I prefer sitting out on the ice exposed to the elements. I also drill my holes by hand instead of with one of those gas-powered augers.

I mean no offense to ice fishing. The part about sitting in a tiny shelter on a block of ice doesn't seem to fun.

I think the view from the middle of any lake is worth seeing.

I used to work with a guy who did a lot of ice fishing. he also had an immaculate lawn, a big garden and a nice garage workshop. The impression I got from talking to him was that he and his wife didn't always get along well. I guess what makes a happy marriage is different for different people.
