Welcome to the work week Midtown. Five days of work, then you get to play. Order an iced coffee and read on.
I began the day cycling along the Greenline. What’s new on the Greenline? It appears there is a new mural going up at about the midway point. And this is the first day I DIDN’T bring my camera. Duh!
Work, work, work and I made my way back home along the Greenline. Good ride today.
My wife stopped in at a new restaurant named “Southern Belle” for lunch. She picked me up a plate of red beans and rice. Mmmm…. good. You can check out the Southern Belle Facebook page here.
