Let There Be Light

Isabelle is her bright self again.

Once again the problem was the relay. It had worked itself loose. It is now secured by the almighty zip ties. 
Tonight, when I went to feed Leo, our cat, I discovered we were out of his canned food. It seemed a perfect opportunity to stretch Isabelle's legs.

I continue to be astounded at how handy this little hook is. Five cans of cat food? No problem.
Isabelle has taken me into at least one new territory. I've seen folks with lots of bug hits on their face shields. I seldom hit bugs with Billie, but with the increase in speed I'm finding many more bugs are finding me.

And, while Heather thinks it looks like a toilet bowl cover, I love my new Buttease Pad sheepskin seat cover.

I guess this qualifies as a farkle, yes? If so, then Isabelle's first.

Good News, Bad News

I did the first gas mileage check on Isabelle, my new Kymco People 250S. I was very happy with the result, 75mpg. The good news is as the engine breaks in the mileage should get even better.

The girls hanging out in the alley.

Now for the bad news. Isabelle's headlights have stop working again. The "pilot" lights are still working which giving me a headlight of sorts, but those big beautiful dual lamps have gone dark.

Amazing the Change

Heather and I went day hiking at Castlewood State Park today. It has been over a month since we last walked these trails.

It's funny, Autumn is just around the corner, yet...

It looked a lot more like autumn on our last visit.

Amazing the change a few inches of rain can make.
