PSA: When to rethink SHARE THE ROAD

The corner of Roswell Road and Riverside Road in Roswell, GA, is one of the busiest intersections in Roswell. To get here, I take Marta Bus # 85 and get off at the intersection of the Roswell and Azalea bus stop, which is just a few 100 feet east of the number 258 on the bridge parapet.

As mentioned before, this is a very busy intersection. Roswell is usually a very busy road and while I am certain I can ride on Roswell and exercise all my legal rights to the road as a cyclist, it may not be a pleasant experience, especially given the 45+ MPH automobile traffic; and, the never-ending stream of automobiles. See map below for more details about this intersection.

Getting back to the topic of this post, let's talk about this 300-or-so feet stretch from Roswell road; going, west from Roswell road on Riverside. I have seen some cyclists ride here, but I won't comment on their riding style. For me, it is important not to jeopardize myself or the automobile driver, when I drive my bicycle. Particularly, in this little stretch, the road is very narrow, as you can see from the pictures below.
There is no room for error. As a cyclist, you cannot safely share the road with an automobile. Take the lane/road!
If you are a cyclist, riding in this area, please do consider taking the road, until there is enough room on the road for sharing. You would be doing a service to all of us. Thank you for your consideration and cooperation!

By the way, I find bus # 85 to be more punctual than bus # 185, which drops me off near Holcomb Bride and Marketplace Blvd. Moreover, I get to ride the Roswell Riverwalk trail, all the way to Riverside and 'the shortcut', which is very pleasant.

Peace :)

Sand Burrs - Not a friend of Shaggy Dog!

Shaggy and I drove to Cedar Hill yesterday so I can get turn in my Texas State Park Pass voucher and get official pass from the TX Parks Office at Cedar Hill State Park.

We stopped at the Joe Pool Lake to check it out. It was a hot, yet beautiful day here in Dallas. Shaggy didn't appreciate the heat. He hid under the bench.
While this photo is not very crisp, I still want to show it so y'all can see the devastating effect the burrs had on Shaggy's face, which you can see in the next photo.

After we got done with the official business, we decided to go hike the Duck Pond Trail at the Cedar Hill State Park. Little did I know about the dangers of taking a Old English Sheepdog walking in a trail abundant with the infamous Sand Burr. The result:
Those evil things got all over his face and he started rubbing his face with his paws and the burrs from the paws got transferred to his face and it was just a really horrible mess.

I tried pulling them burrs off but in vain. There were way …

Out goes the Chow In comes the Basil and the catters are resting

So, we finally got some cooler temps in North Texas.
In fact, a bit too cold, too soon, for some :)

So, with the new colder weather, someone who has been refusing to stay out in the yard, doesn't want to come in no more. Go figure :)

In comes the Basil plant. Too cold for it, at least right now.
Who knows though? Next week it could be back in the low 80s or some such.
Either way it is fine.
Change is good too.

The catters like to eat and sleep.
Particularly, the seniors.

And, some tired looking Juniors.

It is an assortment this time

That's right. You read the title correctly - this post contains an assortment of photographs, not necessarily in any special order.

I will give you a minute to guess what the first photograph is of :) In case you haven't a clue, you can see my little blurb about it at the very end of this post.
I had the day off Friday, so I did rest a bunch and spend time with my family. Black Kitty took a nap with me and was even friendly after I trimmed his nails :) Sometimes, reflections can be very interesting. I love looking at reflections on many objects/surfaces, such as this reflection of a fence on a motorcycle's headlight.
Just in case. 
The reflection in the first photo is one of a church. The photograph was taken by clicking at the television, while we were watching a British Murder Mystery show. If you enlarge the photo, you can see lot more details.

It has been a great week. Hope yours was too.
