Sunday In The Country

Today, my pal Jerry Bayha and I spent the day mapping the route for the 2012 Pick ‘n’ Putt Run at the Fur Peace Ranch. We started out at Millie’s in Middleport, Ohio with a hearty breakfast at people’s prices.

I don’t to give anything away about the upcoming run… but we picked some beautiful roads. Coming out of Lake Hope State Park, we make a quick stop in Zeleski, Ohio and took a couple of pictures.

We logged in about one hundred and thirty miles, covered four counties and had a wonderful ride in a beautiful part of the country.

Great Sunday in the country… hope you all had a good one too!

    OK everyone… this introduces you all to my bike riding buddy Jerry Bayha… Jerry is a stickler for accuracy and here he is busting my you know whats… Well… when wrong, promptly admit it. I was wrong… Jerry is right. Six counties it was… and as for the ‘road home,’ I took a little artist’s license here… I’m looking in the opposite direction from home in this picture… Of course I could have gotten home that way… via Robin Hood’s Barn. Now it’s an entry of rigorous honesty!

    We were just down at the Ranch and visiting family across the river in Williamstown and Parkersburg, WV. Visited a historic mansion called Henderson Hall and they had Indian mounds there!

    Just came across your blog. I always loved your music…and it’s so nice to get a glimpse into the life of a living artist. Thanks for putting it out there.
