So, bike some more I did.  I didn't have any particular destination in mind, so I set out heading north on 13th Street, and turned onto Waterford Avenue.  As I made my way up the hill to the railroad crossing, suddenly I heard a POP!  My rear tire was flat, forcing me to walk the bike the 1/2 mile back home. :(  Not to worry, I have a pair of new inner tubes waiting to be installed, and it will be changed shortly.

Hopefully, next time I'll get a little farther... ;)
