Sunday Final

I tried.
Really I did.
I mean I went over there, and here, and somewhere and nowhere.
To no avail.
No SARATS tree here.
First I tried this:



No good.
All green.
How bout this:



Not as green but still sort of green.
Hmmmm.
Then I got a flat.
Which was good cause man I was a huffing and a puffing today!
I swear, not riding during the week is like slow death.
Death to my legs that is.
Seems like I'm very slowly losing whatever fitness I had built up.
I need to get out during the week.
So anyways, after I fixed my deflated tire, I went a looking.
Here, there, and everywhere.
Wait.
That's a Beatles song.
There, everywhere and here I looked.
I did see this:



Maybe a bicycle covered with flowers is a sign that fall is upon us.
I mean it was completely covered all over with flowers!



Flower power!
It reminded me of tie dye and Jimi Hendrix.
I kept at it.
There must be a tree around here worthy of a SARATS entry.
Nope.
I was getting tired so I just gave up.
All we got here is green.
It's like I live on a tropical island or something.

Since trees don't really change color in my neck of the woods either, and since we, too, have palm trees, I suggest we kick off the APACA: Annual Palm Assessment Comparison -Athlon, a looooooong event involving bicycle riding and photographing palm trees and then blogging about it. Suggested prize: macadamia nuts and prickly pear jelly.

I would swap your gorgeous palms and great weather for the fallen leaves and the terrible winter that has been predicted for us this year...

I'm thinkin' that someone who lives where you do shouldn't be whining about not having a SARATS entry!

Give it a couple of months in my neck of the woods and I'll be dreaming of your islands. Need a visitor?

You really did it.

JRA, yes!
It would be a perpetual sort of thing with no deadline or limit.
I defer to the One Speed Go Contest Committee(OSGCC).

Trevor, it's okay here.
As long as it don't rain.

Tracy, well you know, I was really jealous of all that maple syrup going around.
Even though I don't eat many pancakes.
Free stuff is free stuff.
If you know what I mean.
Visitors to Flat Tire Land are always welcome.
I'll even take you out on a ride.
As long as you like going around in circles.

Shuichi, I think I did something, or maybe I did nothing.
Not sure.
