Taking Out The Liners & A Very Strange Cow

 How Humid Was It?......

Well, Let Me Tell You.....

The weatherman said that the temperature at 7:00 am was 61 degrees
                                       the dew point was 60 degrees
                                       the relative humidity was 97%
He said if there wasn't a 15 mph breeze from the south, It'd be Foggy As Hell!

(Well, maybe he didn't say "hell")

There was no way I was leaving the liners in my gear. My pants have a fleece and a waterproof liner. Out they came.

My jacket has just a fleece liner (a waterproof liner in a denim jacket is nonsense)., But out it came, too.

The next step was to change gloves. The old Aerostich Summer Vegan (my favorites) were patiently hanging in the garage for over a year. I didn't put the winter gloves away just yet. Might still need them.

80 degrees in March! Are you kidding me?

On the way to work today, I had a mission to stop by the Grand Opening of the new "Chick fil A" not too far from my house. Yes, we didn't have one in Wichita. We have lead a deprived life. The restaurant opened up at 6:00 am today and people had camped out since yesterday to be one of the first 100 customers. Seems that the first hundred would get a free sandwich every day for a year, or something like that.

I was not one of the campers. But I did stop by to get a couple of pics.

At this one in the parking lot, if you make the proper left turn you can enter the "two lane drive thru".

Ahh,, what they won't think of next.

And, of course there was a radio station with their DJ blasting music and this guy....

I regret that I didn't stop and buy anything. Guess I don't get too excited about new restaurants, especially fast food ones. Although, from what I hear, their food is pretty good. I am unable to judge it, though, having never tried it. Maybe someday.


  1. Jimbo -
    If you love the 2 lane drive- thru, you'll also enjoy their community partnership efforts and clever ads. Eat mor Chik- in!

  2. Jimbo/cpa3485:

    A chicken san-wich for a year and you didn't line up ? that is a lot of san-wiches to give away each day for a year.

    I can imagine you in that COW suit, if they take the liners out. We can only dream of 80°f, even during summer.

    happy riding

  4. Jim,
    We just got Chick-fil-A here in St. Louis. I'm told they used to be in one of the Malls and I vaguely remember seeing it, but I never ate there. My first Chick-fil-A was when I was visiting my daughter in Norfolk VA. She likes them. My problem is I usually think of it on Sunday, which doesn't get me very far.
