    Screw it I'm riding!!

    Today looks just like yesterday : no clouds in the morning, temps in the 40's, no WIND. I made the mistake yesterday of thinking I'd ride in the afternoon after a meeting. By then it had clouded up - really gray. I'm signing off work and riding for an hour and a half. Its like a trip to the doctors; if I don't go then I'll really be sick.
    For you Coloradons on the thread - hwy 119 1.5 miles to Gap Rd (gravel) a couple of mile to Mtn Base rd. Then 3.5 miles straight down to hwy46. 5 miles up to 119. then approx 5 miles back to the house.
    Going to take the new PArlee and see how she does on these climbs and descents.
    I just can't stand it any more!
    And you know that notion just crossed my mind.

    That's the right attitude

    I seem to have a very similar attitude toward work knowing I'll be retiring later this year.

    A sound plan if ever I heard one.
    Oh I used to be disgusted and now I try to be amused. But since their wings have got rusted, you know, the angels wanna wear my red shoes. But when they told me 'bout their side of the bargain, that's when I knew that I could not refuse. And I won't get any older, now the angels wanna wear my red shoes.

    The best time I had at a job was when I could ride at lunch time.
    Enjoy the ride.

    Ahhh yes and I am lucky. I also get to slip away to Eldora at lunch for the occassional (twice? three? times a week) skate ski during the winter. However, it does make me feel somewhat guilty and I do carry my pager with me. Damned thing has gone everywhere I go pretty much since 1998.
