Postcards from J-Land

I have recieved a couple of postcards so far and am still shamelessly begging for more so if anyone wants to exchange them let me know.

 This first is from Deb at  http://journals.aol.com/jckfrstross/FrostyThoughts/  Hi Deb

               

   The next one is from Sugar.  Hi Sugar, Thanks for the postcard.

    Now of course I would love to have lots more so send me your address and we'll exchange.

    We just got back from a great bike ride.  We did 22.6 miles.  We went to South Dakota following the river trail and then finally found the new bike trail they opened up over there.  We could see it on the other side of the river when we were riding but didn't know how to get there for sure, but we found it. 

   Nice ride.  It got very hot and muggy for awhile,but we were blessed with some rain which cooled us off quickly. We both agreed that getting the sandwiches from Subway had been a good idea so we did that again and ate lunch at the end of the new trail.  Since it just opened we had it to ourselves which was nice.  The woods smelled so neat and there are lots of Russian Olive trees in them which really smell good.  Gold finches, Orioles, lots of birds making sweet songs, it was really nice.  Since the weather has been so hot the trees are losing their leaves and it looks like fall in the woods with all the dead leaves on the ground.  On some of the ride we had to ride on the road which makes me nervous.  Cars give you a wide birth and I always hug the side of the road but that is were all the gravel gets pushed not to mention a really smelly dead skunk.  I hate having the traffic to my back also.  I would much rather ride facing them to see what they are going to do.  Eventually they want to have bike trails connecting all 3 states and that will be great.  Cars on the roads, bikes on the trails.  Live will be good.

   Well, I hope I haven't worn myself out too much for the next 12 hours.  I have to pack a pair of skates I sold and do some housework before work.  Stir fry for supper, something fast and easy and I have to do some laundry.  It will be a long day.

   Remember, send postcards!
