    Thanks, Curtis.

    My jackets arrived today. Just in time for my 55th birthday. Pics will come later.



    Rode just short of 64 miles on Saturday (7/12/08). Photo is of RCK, on left, and I after the ride. I forgot to take the camera on the ride or I could have had a picture of us in front of Irma's Kitchen.

    Our usual Irma's route gives us around 42 to 43 miles. The loop we added to get my 55 plus miles put us at about 60 miles. That close to a metric, we just had to go for it.

    Will probably go for a rail trail ride today, Sunday. I'll be piloting the Cannondale tandem with Mrs. Skipper as stoker and daughter Angela, 34 y/o with cerebral palsy, in tow in her Wike Special Needs trailer.

    I need to start shaving my head again as I can see that helmet hair is an issue here. The pie was apple-blackrasberry. The other note of interest is that we actually met some other bikers on the way, a rare event indeed.

    Curtis: I'm still enjoying my jersey from the 1st order. I was wondering (and hope I've not missed it if its posted elsewhere)... how many total jerseys, vests, and jackets have you been responsible for putting out there for others to see?
    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.

    Yen,
    It started out cool in the am. Skipper took his off shortly after leaving Irma's and I lost mine a few miles later.
    Ten wheels, I'd take you up on your offer of a free trim, however, I need the extra insulation for the upcoming winter!

    Nice pic! Now I know who to look for on the Badger Trail.

    I was at Irma's Kitchen in Argyle on Friday morning. Had breakfast there. Should have had the apple/raspberry or lemon pie, but opted for the rhubarb. Bad choice ... it was way too sweet for my taste.

    Friendly people and breakfast was good. Will give them another try on pie sometime.

    Must be the PIE warming things up--- Are you sure your both old enough to wear those jackets- or is it Grecian 2000?

    Hey! You guys look GREAT! Like an ad!

    BSLeVan. Total shipped so far? I think it must be about 175 or so. I had 60+ this time.
    Kinda neat, huh?
