one of my favorite memories from childhood is that feeling and sense of tiredness and late-day-outside-play of after-school soccer practice. a very large part of that sense had to do with the smell of wet grass in the late afternoon.
i got to ride through that smell today, really worked ..... before the winter storm hit. i was driving home in a snowstorm in 30 degrees no more than 10 minutes after the following pix were taken.
chalk up another 'sneaky ride' to pure luck ;-) 40 miles with the pony without having to wear my winter shoes OR my rain coat ;-)
