    I'll try and make it out, although I'm usually a 10:00 at Doppio in Hood River kind of guy.

    Well, there was two of us for coffee. Good to meet & talk with you James :mfclap: Afterwards & since the sun was still out, I rode solo south past Dufur & checked out Dufur Gap Road ~ meh, it’s not without charm but a nice distraction. At least I got some seat time and let the bike out to stretch her legs. Still bitterly cold though…… :scared

    Alright Mel, here’s your chance. Tomorrow is forecast to be sunny and a bit warmer. I’ll be heading for coffee then maybe exploring some new (new to me) roads.

    The Dark Night was going to try to show but the last I heard he’ll be …….um……busy whips: crackup:

    BUGGER!! I forgot when we were talking, that I signed up for a writing class...it's on Saturdays the next 4 weeks...10-12 in Hood River. As for tomorrow...god I'm dying to get out, but am already committed to helping Ron and Karla finish tiling the countertops in their kitchen after the class. Got most of it done today, just have the backsplash to do tomorrow...so hmmm...depending on how late we can start a ride, maybe something is possible. I'd have to run back up to gdale to swap rigs though, as Kyla would be with me to start with. Lemme know...

    For this weekend’s Saturday Morning Coffee I’m going to check out a new place, the Petite Provence, in The Dalles, 408 E. 2nd Street, 9:15ish. It’s French so they should have some good coffee……maybe :popcorn:

    Haven't tried their coffee yet...but everything else there is yummy. I'll squeeze in a few minutes to drop in again (hopefully a lil earlier for me this time). If the weather is decent...even been playing with the idea of riding there and to my class.

    The Petite Provence is an excellent choice for The Dalles, good coffee, yummy pastries and lots of seating.

    Thanks Mel for stopping by for some good conversation.

    yep...enjoyed the chat, and thanks again for the maintenance advice and links. Two more weeks and I'll be able to have more time and not have to rush out half way through my coffee.

    The afternoon was gorgeous, almost went out for a spin.

    Sa-weet!!! Forecast for Saturday has changed from 60% chance of precip down to 20% (which usually means wind...but oh well...better than rain). Low 50's for the highs and cloudy.

    ...I think I can...I think I can....I think I can... :mfclap:

    (ya know Doug...if we left a little later...like early afternoon...it would have a chance to warm up to those highs a little. (and I could go)) :nana

    Oh that figures! I’m going to be out of town this weekend. But I’ll be back for the next one, maybe then the highs might get to the 60’s (yeah, I’m dreaming….) :fallinga:

    If you can, get out & ride…..I think you can…..I think you can! :mfclap:
