Then as we arrived home, our neighbors next to us (Ray and Gerie) had just taken his trike out of his trailer and wanted to show it to us. It's very impressive to see up close. Unlike some other trikes that we've seen here that are made from bikes like the Honda Goldwing or Harley Ultra-Glide, this is custom-made. And the engine? You car fans might have recognized it (I didn't) as a 400 hp Corvette engine. It's fully automatic, and he says it's a blast to drive. I asked about the danger of pulling the front wheel off the ground, but he assured me that having the engine so far forward prevents that. He's insisted that I take it for a spin, so maybe in the next few days I'll get a chance.
So back to my point, by the time we got some lunch after leaving the Pickle-ball court, it was 90 minutes later than we planned. We had slowed down, learned some things, reinforced some new friendships and had some fun. And what a nice change it was.
I noticed while writing this blog that Val was working on her computer, rapidly typing away. I assumed it was an email, but when I showed her this post, she laughed and showed me what she had been writing. It was surprisingly close to what I'd written including talking about slowing down and mentioning all the people I wrote about. So tomorrow may be a more thoughts on this change in our lifestyle. That's assuming I get around to posting it.....
