My condolences But I'm right there with you. I hate getting complimentary copies of the AARP magazine. The only thing worse than 50, is 51, 52, ....

Yeah Pcad, just think, not only do you get to turn 50 this weekend, but in 7 weeks, you'll be 51.

Assuming that you or any of us make it to Friday, have a good one.

Damn Merlin. That was harsh. Then again, he probably can't read this without special glasses.

Yeah, patentcad turns 50 on Friday and he probably has 12,000 miles on his bike already this year. 50 is not old at all.

Incorrect.

11,535 miles after today's ride. Whether you're 30 or you're 70, you work with what you got. At the end of the day I'd rather die of a coronary chasing some Cat 2 up Scratchup Road than on the couch watching the Jets lose with a bag of chips on my lap (even if they are Lays Sour Cream & Onion). I'd rather die with an endorphin buzz than Lays heartburn.

F the Jets. Go Giants. Unlike baseball where Mets fans hate the Yankees and vice versa, NY football fans cross-root for both teams. It's far too complicated for the average BF weenie to understand, and I can't explain it anyway. Suffice it to say that when the Jets play the Giants it's a problem. If they ever faced each other in the Super Bowl it would be like matter and anti-matter colliding and the universe might implode.
