Earlier this month on facebook I questioned that anyone would read or be interested in what I might have to say, so I was quite surprised when someone called me and left a voice message in response to the blog I wrote on March 28 of this year titled, “Staying dry on your next bicycle adventure.”
The person, who did not leave his name or phone number, called to comment quite vehemently on this seemingly innocent statement, “Without proper rainwear protection, you may arrive at your destination soaking wet. It’s easy to understand how uncomfortable and inconvenient this would be as I personally found out on one 4th of July weekend ride a few years ago.” My caller informed me that it had not rained on the 4th of July in Oregon since the year 2000, and that I should get my facts straight! The message made me smile since the weekend to which I was referring was sometime in the 1980’s! I guess that my “a few years ago” is someone else’s ancient history, and that I need to be very specific when I mention a weather event. So I’ve already learned that while people may not necessarily be interested in what I have to say, they ARE paying attention and will take the time to set me straight.
