Knowing Wave

Hey everybody! Did you all have a decent weekend? I did, because I attended a wedding on Saturday and had such a good time (hic!) that I slept most of Sunday. But enough about me. This post is (I think) about one of you.

A cyclist going the opposite way on the TVP (Thames Valley Parkway, or in more common parlance "The Bike Path") gave me a wave that looked like they knew me. I came this closeto signalling them to pull over for a quick hello. What if it wasn't somebody I "knew", but rather just somebody who's waves are inadvertently familiar and encouraging? Even getting somebody I sort of know to pull over and say hello would feel kind of awkward to me. I ended up just saying "good morning" on my way by.

So, tell me, is this you, and god help me, should I have known who you were? Is the mighty Richard Sleegers just sporting a beard now? I may never get an answer, but you can't say I didn't try.

Yer Pal,

Guilty on both counts (me and I haven't shaved in over a week). I was heading in much earlier than usual to prep for work and took the path to avoid the heavier traffic. Just after passing I had the urge to shout, "GOPRO" but alas, missed the opportunity as I, too, wasn't certain.

Excellent! Mystery solved. I'm glad I posted on it, because now I have a most excellent "this close" graphic. One of the things about commuting is that I imagine we both have little or no time to stop. One of these days I'm sure...
