I look at the picture every day. It's one of a collection of bike photos in my office. And happy valentine's day to you, too.

I hadn't seen that one before.

I like it!

I clicked on this thread expecting to read a fluffy message and instead found a picture that left me laughing.

And thanks.... HVD to you too!

Told you not to wash the cat.

And Valentines day passed peacefully in our household. Not so in my daughters. Son-in-law decided that as he is now married- it is pointless making the effort.

Daughter is still coming down from the explosion she made.

If this is the son in law that just got married its good that he learned his lesson early before bad habits set in...

If a cat looks like that- you do not go anywhere near it. Reminds me of my Daughter.

Did a Google Images search on "Valentine's bike" I think, Yen. Oh, today's your ride!!! Can't wait to hear how it goes.

Stepfam, I feel for your daughter and her new husband. Are you going to give that boy a few pointers? Sounds like his parents didn't prepare him for the realities of married life?

I just heard from a former co-worker that recently he went out and bought himself a new Shelby without talking to his wife about it first. His wife didn't speak to him for three weeks!

I can lace one up for you that looks like that. No trouble, most of the wheels that I build look kind of like that.
