Last week was really tough on my family. My oldest of four children enlisted in the Air Force. I dropped him off at the military processing center in Dallas on Monday. He's now attending basic training at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio. I'm happy that he's out there living his own life now but I can't believe how depressed I was. I've managed to snap out of it. My wife's pointed out some of the positive aspects of our son's departure. A bag of potato chips now lasts several days and we are definitely saving money on toilet paper and gasoline.
Anyway, I managed to sneak a ride this afternoon. Riding is great stress relief.
The section of the Trinity Trails that crosses under Rogers and University is now open. The trail used to dive rather steeply under these two roads. The grade has been reduced and sight distance has been increased.
Texas wildflowers. Unfortunately they won't be around much longer.
