Having A Really Fine Time Rolling Over A Thorn At Mallard Cove Park
As you can see the usual blue sky which hovers above my location on the planet is currently being blocked by a lot of gray clouds.
Thunderstorms are in the forecast. Currently I have heard no booming.
My pedaling at Mallard Cove Park was uneventful except for one event.
I rolled over a thorn.
The thorn was stuck to a stick. I think it may have been a mesquite branch. I quickly pulled out the thorn. It had penetrated deep into my front inner tube.
My inner tubes have self sealing slime inside them.
I continued rolling a couple more miles, to no noticeable air leakage. By the time I made it back to my abode the tire still felt fully inflated.
But, I will not be totally shocked tomorrow to find my front tire flat.
All this self sealing slime talk has me being hungry. I must put an end to my current starvation. Lunch will likely accomplish that goal.
