Ah, Fall

Fall, my favorite season, that is, when I can enjoy it.  Fall is such a busy time that is just slips by, sometimes without notice.  Brock ended up sick this week which meant Shelly was home from work with him.  When this happens, I get to be the school bus.  Dropping two boys off at school doesn't allow me to ride my motorcycle either (something else that has not happened much).  Since Tuesday was forcasted to be the best day of the week, and probably the last of these days, I threw the Masi on the trunk rack and brought it to work.  Managed a nice hour long lunch time ride.  

Unfortunately, my Garmin Forerunner 305 GPS quit working (again).  It has done this twice before.  The GPS quits, everything else works.  The watch even reports the GPS as version 0.00. A message to Garmin resulted in the only option to fix it is to send it to them plus $80 to repair.  Not sure what to do, this is only 15 months old.  $80 plus shipping and a 90 day warranty seems steep.  New 305's are under $150 with heart rate strap and full 1 year warranty.  Plus, looks like a couple of other options are about to hit the shelves with the Motorola MOTOACTV (that includes MP3 and touch screen) or the new Garmin 910XT.  Both are much more expensive than the repair of mine, but...

Anyway, back to rollers I guess.  The nighttime lows are dropping into the 20s.

Views of Fall

Penne with butternut squash and goat cheese.  Mmmm.

Not nearly enough miles enjoying the fall views and weather.

Need a better camera (phone).  This tree in my backyard was vibrant yellow.
