Shoeing a Clydesdale

Here's a picture of Your Humble Narrator being fitted for cleats. The gentleman doing the fitting is the legendary John Allis, three-time Olympian whose 1976 record for the Mount Washington Hill Climb stood for seven years. Kind of like saying, "Yeah, and Mario Andretti changes my oil." I felt like the biggest poseur in the world...

Sadly I don't think Bill Gates could fix his own computer anymore .

But that is pretty cool.

So far as I can tell, Bianca is fine, having been carefully protected by my well-padded self.
