Sunny Sunday Sundaes

The Saint Louis area is finally thawing out from weeks in the deep freeze. Formerly icy roads are sopping with melt. It’s sunny and 60 degrees.  Residents are wondering aloud what that thing is in the Southern sky emitting light and heat. Time for a bike ride!

My daughter, Helen, and I called up our neighbors, and good friends, Jason and Octavia Wilson – another father/daughter riding pair. They had the same plan we did – to get some riding done while the getting was good.

Helen and I rode over to the Wilsons’ place and met them in the driveway. We formed a plan and hit the road.

Bill and Helen's Kawasaki Z1000

Our destination was Lebanon, IL, and a little ice cream place called “Dr. Jazz”.

The girls had milkshakes at the counter. Jason and I sat at a nearby table and unwound a bit. I had a scoop of watermelon sherbet.

After snack time, we saddled up and rode home. It was a very pretty day. It felt nice to get out on the bikes with our girls and go someplace fun.
