Summer has kicked Fall to the curb for a spell and returned for an encore performance. In fact, before the sun faded and dusk arrived, it got to nearly 80 degrees.
It sure was refreshing to head out in the warm weather again, instead of the bone-chilling temps when the thermometer was hovering around the 32-degree mark.
My destination today was a visit to the dentist. I left early and took the long way there, winding my way through a few neighborhoods, and I still got there ahead of schedule. This was probably due to the stiff wind that was blowing. A few times I felt like I could just lift off and go airborne like one of those big character balloons at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
I saw a few convertibles tooling along Fort Street and a motorcycle or two as well. One biker was dressed in short sleeves and had left his helmet behind, allowing his long locks to blow carelessly in the wind. He sure was living the life as evidenced by the big smile on his face – in fact, he kind of resembled this member of “Skells Angels” featured on his Chopper in the photo above. A close-up look reveals a do-rag covering his skull, and one bony hand gripping the handlebar in a near-death grip. I’ll bet he is a real “Skell on wheels” once he gets onto the open road.
It was a successful trip – four miles roundtrip, no cavities, and, camera in tow, I snapped a treasure trove of Halloween and harvest decorations to fill the pages of my blogs during the next few weeks.
