Crusing with DCinCT...things that make you go hmmmmm..Friday

Day off...wife in NY... again...so what better way to stay out of trouble than to go for a ride...grab a coffee to go, grab the camera, top off the tank and away we go.

Hi 60’s, low 70’s, cloudy, who cares...Initial thought is to head to the RI shoreline but 10 minutes into the journey decide the rope a dope, a series of rights and lefts that lead to wherever...will be the theme of the day.

First unusal sight worth stopping for



always amazes me ideas people come up with to decorate their yards...got a few balls in the cellar collecting dust...wonder if they’d notice if I added mine to the pile.

Find myself cruising the farm country and while its not uncommon to pass chicken farms, turkey farms, horse farms, etc...for some reason I can’t figure...these farms are becoming more popular in this part of Ct…





remember a few years back I was cruising some quiet back country road and I came upon a woman walking her llama on a leash along the road the way one would walk their dog...always regretted not having my camera to get that pic…

moving on, came across a farm equiptment dealer...think you know your farm equiptment...lets see…

no 1



no 2



if you actually know what either one is or what they are used for...needless to say, you have less of a life than I do…

I get the feeling tho, this will somehow work its way into tonites dream...and not with a good ending…



final pic of the day worth stopping for



still trying to figure out why it was worth stopping for.

All in all...a good day...even The ZeussDude was considerate enough to hold off a brief rain shower till I hit the driveway...that kind of day.

Whats the big hurry...slow down and enjoy the ride!

If you don't see something new on every ride, you haven't ridden far enough.

Number one is a round bale wrapper for hay. Number 2 is a rotary hay rake.

Yeah - for some of us we're sitting here on the west coast where it's supposed to be 11:00 for normal people but these whackadoodles are three hours behind the normal people so it's only 8:00

What better way to kill time than read your post and look up meaningless trivia. That's 2 minutes of my life I won't get back.

Like the title says, following Dennis on one of his rides makes my go hmmmmmm. You'd think he would have an idea of where he's going, but after the 2nd or 3rd oops wrong turn and a few u turns to go back, always seems strange. I'm always going hmmmm with him.


I can head East or West, it doesn't matter as long as it's on 2 wheels.

With Dennis there are no wrong turns, every turn is a new adventure, makes it kinda fun.

That's why it takes him 4 hours to get a gallon of milk at the corner store.

I always pack my passport when Dennis is leading the ride ...... just in case.

We, hubby & I were coming back from dinner & I made a turn too early. It was going in the right direction, so I went with it (didn't have him yelling in my ear "this isn't the right road !) Turned out to be a more pleasant calm road anyway....and we made it home before dark
