I rode my bike this morning to Sunset Lake. This is the same route I always take. Wes has been training for the Conquer the Coast ride so he prefers to ride to the point of heat stroke; whereas I prefer to ride to the point of hunger. Anyway, on the route there are these 2 annoying, squeaky, chihuahuas that I have named Satan and Lucifer. They bark and run toward me snarling and showing their teeth but are on long chains attached to a tree. I have started almost laughing at them because I know they can't bother me or run out in my path. Well, not TODAY, one of them, Lucifer the bigger of the two scrawny rats, ran out in the street nearly in front of me. Scared the crap out of me. I am not afraid of the dogs, but of hitting one with my bike and crashing and hurting myself. This has happened before, just ask Wes or Kim or anyone who has ridden much at all. Lesson-Don't think Lucifer is just out of your reach and can't bother you. Just when you let your guard down...there he is!
