Two Bikes, Hot Sun, Cool Iced Tea in Bertram
We went on a "very small" (just two bikes) chapter ride satruday, the high was 95', but we got home before that.
We started at about 10am at IHOP at Duval and 183 with very nice temperatures, rode out 183 south to 360 south to 2222, took that to valente road I think, then up to 1431, then out 1431 to cow creek road and up to the road that goes to Bertram. Very nice ride. Had some very good Mexican cuisine, then slogged on home in the heat around 2:30pm.
Stopped at a low water crossing on Cow Creek road to take some pics. ooh it was gettin' hot! As usual, click a pic for a larger version.
Debbie had to play in the water. Not a good idea, they don't call this Cow Creek for nothing.
Gosh that horn was loud!
Benefit for Behr put on by the Taylor CMA chapter
Debbie and I went to the benefit for Mark "behr" Barron today, he is in critical condition in the hospital, and all our prayers go with him.
They had a ride, and then met for the 'party" part of the event out at a farm one one of the chapter members. We had lots of great food, and wonderful deserts. Oh yes the fellowship was great too, and the music as well. We even had a real nice visit from one of the local William County Constables, no problems of course, just a friend of the family I believe.
Please keep Behr in your prayers!
Weren't we meeting at IHOP?
Well, Debbie and I went to IHOP bright and early this morning, so we could get some coffee before leaving with the group for our chapter ride. The coffee was great, but nobody ever showed up for the ride. Turns out we were meeting at Rudy's, just down the block, not at IHOP. Oops! Bummer, I hate it when I don't pay attention, but I am sure it must be someone elses fault, right?

At our officers meeting the other evening, I took a photo of Johnny our chapter VP. I really like the image, but the background was very distracting, so I blurred it out, and this is the result.
Hey Johnny, I will be happy to have a print made, and send it to your mother if you like,
A Time for Everything - UCOA Moment for May 2010
I have heard that if you are going to borrow, then you should borrow from the best.
Here is a writing from the man that was called "The wisest man to ever live".
Ecclesiastes 3:1-14, one of the writings of Solomon;
1 There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven:
2 a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot,
3 a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build,
4 a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance,
5 a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them, a time to embrace and a time to refrain,
6 a time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away,
7 a time to tear and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to speak,
8 a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace.
9 What does the worker gain from his toil?
10 I have seen the burden God has laid on men.
11 He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men; yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end.
12 I know that there is nothing better for men than to be happy and do good while they live.
13 That everyone may eat and drink, and find satisfaction in all his toil—this is the gift of God.
14 I know that everything God does will endure forever; nothing can be added to it and nothing taken from it. God does it so that men will enjoy him.
What could I add, but WOW!
