Enjoyed a week’s stay in the Wisconsin Dells, mostly riding my bike on the “400” bike path, a nice flat ride on an old rail bed.  The 400 is so named for the 400 miles in 400 minutes, a passenger train had which traveled between Chicago and Minneapolis/St Paul.

Featured along the path are many rural scenes and so I offer photos and enhanced shots along with my thoughts on the well known rhyme♫♪



NF Abstract Wednesday

Alphabe-Thursday, letter D



‘The Farmer in the Dell’

Always thought that rhyme was swell

Round and round, the words just flow

Until they drive you bonkers!#!

As all parents know♫
