A Glorious Sunday Drive

 On my bike. As strange as this may sound, there's nothing more relaxing to me than a long bike ride on a beautiful Sunday morning. Of course by the time the 30-mile ride is done, there's nothing more relaxing than being back home, showered, with a bowl of popcorn and an A&W 10. 🙂 The… Continue reading A Glorious Sunday Drive
