I don't worry too much about silly things I see while riding along - as just occasionally it's me that does it! However I feel a little 'talkative' tonight. While riding up Aldgate Valley Road later this afternoon, I had three vehicles overtake me at different places. The first waited patiently behind as it was at one of the most bendy areas. As soon as I was sure the road ahead was clear, I gave a thumb's up and it passed by with a wave from the occupants. Both the next 2 vehicles also came up just before blind bends, but both edged over the middle line and overtook straight away. Then both immediately slowed and turned off within 50 metres of overtaking me, barely into the side road as I went by the intersection. I wasn't inconvenienced on either occasion, but was somewhat bemused ...
I don't drink much FUIC, but have the occasional little treat when I've 'earned' it. When I do, it's usually from the Mylor General Store. I bought a small one this afternoon. I sat at a little table under the verandah - and looked at the carton. Then I looked down at myself. I thought about the afternoon's steeper climbs - including Lynton-Belair path, Cherry Plantation Road, and the unsealed Brown Road where care is needed to keep traction. Of course that meant nice downhills, like the first descent on Scott Creek Road, and the gentle, peaceful Boyle Swamp Road. I'd gone past the stinky farm on the Mylor-Echunga road twice! (bad planning) And I thought about the climbing yet to be done. So, back to the FUIC. I looked at the carton again. FAT REDUCED. Now I reckon I could easily go a full fat amount! I could do a totally insignificant protest and not buy one - but it washes down the slice of carrot-walnut cake (with lovely soft icing) so well.
