I wanted to ride today but things conspired against me doing a long ride. Putting all the stuff together and entering everything into tax software can be tedious.

The Friday night concert series on Pier 3 in New Bedford will feature a send off celebration forSamantha Johnson. She has been performing all over the county and abroad for a long time and she is now being recognized as a trained, well polished, professional vocalist.
The concert proceeds with Brass Force Funk band. I’ll be packing my bike with a couple of cold ones and riding from Fairhaven at around 5:30 ish.
