Playing Hooky from work...

It hit mid fifties today here in Indiana, so I put in about 75 miles over an, ahem, extended lunch hour.

Along with riding my favorite local twisties and backroads around Lafayette and Battleground I decided to do a tiny bit of exploring. Entering Delphi from Battleground I encountered the Schoenstatt Wayside Shrine. Uhhh... yeah. Here are the photos, draw your own conclusions.

Bikes lookin' real good!
You weren't ridin' on those walkin' paths were you??
Hope to post some ride pics myself in the very near future, though they are callin' for more snow for tomorrow, up here.

No, no riding on the walking paths. Believe you me, I don't want to mess with any bad juju from the Schoenstatt Wayside Shrine.

A man after my own heart. So many times I think about playin hookey to ride. I've done it a few times, but if I did it as much as I wanted, I'd run out of vacation time quick!!

Haha, it's even worse when you're self employed - nothin to stop you but an underdeveloped sense of guilt!

If I played hooky from work to ride I wouldn't post it here. My boss owns a V and frequents this site- of course he isn't posting his hooky rides either. That is unless we are both doin' a hooky ride somewhere then I guess that's fair game.
