|For Louise Penny fans, locating not one but two copies of desired book in local library|
is a major coup. March 4 errand.
There's something about the longer daylight and geese migrating north that proves perfect timing for the Errandonnee, motivating participants to try something new and jump-start spring riding and/or kicking others out of a commuting rut.
Unlike the first Errandonnee where I attempted and failed, (10 of 12 errands complete, so rather a near miss), because the challenge was held in February then, thus it was difficult to stay warm plus I was afraid to ride in the dark (another 2013 prerequisite). However, this time around I'm well equipped for cold weather and have a rockin' headlight, just in case, which proves that you can teach an old dog new tricks!

|This art gallery seems to change names like the wind, but it will always be the Firehouse Gallery |
to me because the old firehouse was converted to multi-floor arts center.
