Now I've seen it all

Well, if not all, at least one more thing. This one was in the form of a cyclist. A touring cyclist, with the most magnificently huge load of stuff I have ever seen. Ho Chi Minh Trail grade of load of stuff. On an absolutey remarkably large TREK bike with a very large frame and drive train like I have never seen before. An enclosed front chain ring? And this very same cyclist was wearing a floppy felt hat and happily smoking his pipe as he rode on out of the C-store parking lot and on down the road....

At moments like these, Fred and OCP are mere words whose meaning meet, mingle and disappear into the oneness of the Tao. Or something like that. Maybe.
