Scary Stuff

Monday, July 29, 2013

My ride today led me parallel to the railroad tracks. It's a favorite spot.

Much to my delight, a train was coming. I love the deafening rumble. It towers above me little more than a cars length away.

I dug deep and the chase was on.

Little did I know there was a critter hiding too close to the tracks for comfort. When it had enough, it bolted for safety.

With my head facing down over the handlebars, it came into view racing past maybe 6 inches from my front tire.

I nearly teetered over from fright. I did screech a girly girl vocalization.

A frightened rat; frightening a girl gone riding.

    We have rabbits and squirrels everywhere but our problem is trying to avoid hitting them with the car. Take care.

    Oh, my! As I was reading I was afraid that you were going to take a tumble! I am so thankful it was only a small heart kind of scare. I hate falling on roads and gravel from my bike. Keep riding!
