Started in Cranberry with RustyRed, who I had offered to show the route to. We rode together through the Industrial Park and the Red Belt to Beaver Street. It was cold, but a very nice ride.
Stopped in a nearby coffee shop to read and accomplish Errandonee 12: Reading 2.
Observed: the rich really are different than you and me.
Saw tis at Yarns Unlimited, Beaver Street, Sewickley:
Back on the road, slightly uphill back to Cranberry. Very nice ride, drivers were extremely cooperative. Took a phone call from an older person and thought I was responding in a moment of bicycle-induced clarity. When I heard myself saying, "because otherwise you're going to end up sitting in a nursery home in a dirty diaper for 24 hours", I realized that perhaps I had romanticized my mind-state.
