As I was messing around with my camera today taking pictures of a few baby bunnies that are living in my yard when all of a sudden I heard a sound coming from out in the street and what I saw was quite the sight, a 20 to 25lb Turkey making his way down the sidewalk, now thats something you don't normally see in a residential neighborhood ( at least around here). He walked about half a block with me on his tail when he crossed the street making traffic stop for him and then proceeded to jump a chain link fence into a yard then over another chain link fence into another yard and just kept right on going.

No riding today due to the 12 yo's doubleheader. Good day, though, as it was his second consecutive Saturday with 3 home runs.

Rode to Ft. Lauderdale beach last night and got caught in a thunderstorm. Pedaled to Riverside Market during a lull in the storm and had some fish tacos and tried a few varieties of beer:



Over 500 to choose from!

That doesn't look too bad, really. I often wonder why the cheap bikes at places like Wal-Mart couldn't be simpler than an $80 double-suspension mountain bike, and I find that they're changing quite a bit lately.

I don't understand the need for the 80 spoke radial front wheel, though.

I'm always glad to meet a fan of glass craft!

I am looking forward to the completion of his new museum in Seattle this year, finally a good reason to travel out West
