It was a crisp, clear morning and the bike ride in was going to be great. When the temperatures drop, so does the use of the bike/hike path. A couple miles into the ride I finally spotted a pedestrian walking a hunting dog off the leash and pretty far ahead of her. I normally ring my bell about 3 times prior to saying "Good morning, coming up on your left." Today I figured there would need to be some extra warning so the walker could get her dog under control. Wrong.
After ringing 5 times without her head moving a fraction, I finally said my "Good morning, coming up on your left." Her response was unsettling. "I don't care."
It's true. "You are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other!" Wow, lukewarm is disturbing.
