… people might want to employ someone to bring them coffee in the morning.
It was a beautiful but chilly ride home after the 7th Annual Layne Creed Memorial Ride last night, and so I decided that for once, I was not going to multi-task my way through the morning. You’ve been there … throw in a load of laundry, bake biscuits for a friend, edit photos, and have a cup or two of coffee while checking FaceBook and WordPress, writing out the grocery list and doing the bills. For one hour, I was going to sit on the couch, with a cup of coffee, under a favorite quilt and just enjoy.
A perfect plan!
Until I realized that I would need to get up and out of my warm cocoon and get another cup. Curses! (yeah, I know … life is tough).
The ride was a huge success! In the memory of Layne Creed, over 150 bikes with over 220 drivers / riders set out to raise money for the Children’s Center of Surry County and two Surry County Community College Scholarships. I really didn’t take many photos since I spent most of the day on the bike.
This is the morning of the ride, looking out over Draper Valley towards the Blue Ridge. The morning mist still hovers over the mountains.

Now … about those chores (after I check out your blogs!)
Enjoy your Sunday, everyone!
(Update: The 7th Annual Ride raised $8000!)
LB I have a solution to your coffee dilemma, a hydration backpack, LOL. As usual a great post and you enjoy your Sunday also.
Thanks Joe. I’ll look for a heated hydration pack!
What you need is a man slave around the house to fetch cups of coffee and, well for anything else that you can think of 🙂 A great read and your photographs are wonderful too my friend. Have a wickedly enjoyable Sunday 🙂
Exactly what I need! Thanks for the complements on the photos 🙂
You are welcome and thank you for offering them 🙂
What you need my friend is what we call in these parts, “A Pool Boy!” for that extra cup of coffee. Images are gorgeous.
Yes! A pool boy! Can I use a bell to get his attention, too?
it looks as though it was a great day for the ride…congrats to all who made the ride! Great read & photos as always! I enjoy your travels…
I’m so glad to read your comment … truly! And I just updated the post. The ride raised $8000!!
Freezing hey glad you enjoyed your coffee,it was good your ride was for a good cause, always makes you feel good when your helping someone else.Looks really green and beautiful over in your part of the world.
We live in vastly different places, from so many perspectives! Both beautiful though. By the way, I just updated the post: the ride raised $8000!!
wow that’s fantastic, you should all be pleased with raising $8000.
Sounds like my kind of morning, coffee and friends and little chores squeezed in on the side. I even solved the ‘getting up for coffee’ dilemma by pouring it into a carafe. So I can park myself in front of the Morning News, WordPress and get refills without skipping a beat. I got that coffee thang down pat, LOL
Congratulations on another successful ride. Surrey County is so pretty and I’m sure pretty happy too. Have a great week LB.
A carafe! Great idea! Does it keep the coffee warm? I’m going to have to do some online shopping!
No doubt, I pour my morning pot in there and it’s still hot at lunch. Actually it’s still ‘warm’ by dinner time but I’ll nuke it a bit then….I like a java after dinner sometimes. I guess even a thermos would work if you have one of them. Cheers!
Sounds like a great morning none the less!
It really was! That’s my church on Sunday … coffee and catch up!
Now that sounds like service (I wonder if I can have Coke delivered, too?)!
I’m very happy to hear the ride was such a success! And absolutely Beautiful photos, L.B – as always! 🙂
You are so good to say that … I am so hypercritical of my photos – mostly when I look at someone else’s amazing ones!
Looks like it was a great ride! You got lots of cool ideas on how to solve the coffee dilemma too. Remember though what goes in must come out! 😉 You probably need to stretch your legs anyway.
I had to chuckle when I read this!! You are so right on target about needing to “stretch the legs”. Now … for some online shopping (for a carafe anyway 🙂 )
I’m sure there are plenty of men that might do that perfectly
And wouldn’t that be great!!
