Rode from home to SBUX to meet up with the Train of Pain for an early morning ride. Took my time and still got there WAY early, so I rode down through the subdivision and did some exploring. Nice way to wake up the legs.

Smoking fast ride with a small group... we just hammered this one. Great fun! Rode hard up the hills on Ira Needles/Trussler... heading south and west into the wind. Once we got out past New Dundee Road, I was the defacto leader as I new all the roads.

Took the group along some roads that they had never seen before... so they were all quite impressed. The one road is brand new pavement and has a lovely little hill on it. Heard some good natured grumbling, but we had a good ride going. When we got out past New Hamburg, they were going to keep going, but I had enough for the day and headed home. I was glad to I have made it home when I did, because just as I walked into the garage the rain REALLY started coming down. Up until then it was just sprinkling or we got to an area after the rain had fallen (wet roads).

Good time with a good group of guys.

Therapy on the ankle... getting better, but still kinda snappy when I walk, just not as painful as it was. Hoping to be 100% by October and Spain! :)

Worked late ... so I had to push hard to get home. Add to that a North wind and you have a recipe for a tired Bopper. I worked the full 40 minutes... and my legs hate me now.

Couple delinquent drivers... they left their brains at the side of the road before they started driving... just can't understand these people. :(

Had to rush as I left late... but I didn't take the shortest, most flat route... so I worked hard and woke up the legs.
Low back is still painful from the golf on Monday, I think I better do my back stretches for a while to loosen things up. If it's not one thing it's another lately... getting old sux.

too many things today... have volunteered to work some O/T.... but also have two appointments this morning and Sweetums starts nights today... I am going to leave work by at least 3. So as I have too many places to go, decided I better drive today.

Decided to go out golfing today... have had an urge of late to mashee that niblick... #3 son wanted to join me. So, we went out and played a round at the local club, where he used to work (had a coupon). I did horrible (for me), but considering I've only played once in the last year, it's not unexpected. Shouldn't have even kept score, just hit balls and had fun.

Walking was still problematic on the ankle. Have physio tomorrow and a massage... see how things go.

today... rain!

I'm going along with #1 to his university orientation... I'm not staying with him for the orientation, but after he's done we're going to do some driving around to show him other roads to take. The main route is the 401... multi-lane hell-- which is often closed or severely backed up due to stupid drivers... so having alternate routes around that is a good thing. The other route to Guelph is a two lane highway, which gets about 100,000 cars daily (just a guess, but it's a LOT) and backs up pretty bad if their is an accident/incident on the 401. So, I'm going to show him some of the back roads... none are great solutions, but they are better than being stuck in traffic... not moving.
