Congratulations, Corbin and Sarah

Saturday morning in central Ohio brought showers and thunderstorms. But by 2:00 pm the sun was breaking through the clouds and the missus turns to me and says, "Let's go for a ride." You gotta love a woman like that.

So we took a leisurely loop around the area and ended up at the Ye Olde Mill, a restaurant and ice cream shop at the home of the Velvet Ice Cream plant. Its called Ye Olde Mill because it is on the site of an old grist mill.

There's a water wheel that doesn't turn anything but it does rotate and gives the illusion that one has stepped back into time.

One side of the property is the commercial enterprise and the other side is a park. The two are separated by the ice cream shop. The commercial side houses the ice cream production, storage and delivery facilities. The park is part play ground, part petting zoo, part nature education center and part pond with dozens of ducks, geese and a couple of swans.

After finishing up my sandwich and partaking of an "old fashion" sundae, which tasted a lot like a contemporary sundae, Teresa and I walked outside and visited this goat and sheep.

I tried to get Teresa to put her face in one of these cutouts but she declined.

As we departed the mill, another rider and passenger turned into the entrance and they immediate caught my attention. Trailing their bike was a string and a couple of time cans. The rider, Corbin I learned later, was dressed in a tuxedo and the passenger, Sarah, was dressed in a white satin gown hiked up to her knees. The sign on the back of the tail trunk said, "JUST MARRIED."

We pulled a U-turn and followed them back into the parking lot and asked permission for a photo, which there were happy to oblige. I didn't get the last name but when the announcement comes out in the local paper I'll send them a copy of the photo.

What a great way to start a new life together - on two wheels! Best to you, Corbin and Sarah! Congratulations!

Your description of riding in the midwest really has me chomping at the bit to get the heck out of Vegas! Thanks for the reminder of how beautiful riding can be back there.

And, congrats to the newly married couple! Tux and a wedding dress on a cruiser??? NICE!
