Looks like a smashing day to start a ride with a great forecast
Having said that about the weather it could always be a whole lot worse. One thing keeping me grounded will be the thought that I could have always been an 18 year old in the group of ANZAC soldiers who landed at Gallipoli Beach in Turkey on April 25, 1915 and didn't even make it out of the boat before losing my life.
In fact to all those who have lost their lives in any armed conflict from whichever side
LEST WE FORGET.
On a somewhat lighter note, it should be interesting to see how this changes by the time I finish.
