    Just 5 more days until OUR day!

    Anyone care to guess why or what day it will be?

    What will be your preference?

    And what will be the official 50+ ride official ___ this summer???

    We started a little early tonight. I had no idea grocery stores carried it in smaller portions until today.

    Of course I know what it is ... National Pie Day.

    As opposed to National Pi Day, which is on March 14th, of course.

    Probably a wedding anniversary. Sounds like you already got into the champagne.

    For me it will be the day I finally get the hole in my neck surgically plugged up so that for the first time since last June, I will not have an opening where air and water can flow through. Normally this would have healed on its own after my trach tube was removed, but my skin had been over eager to heal the wound and grew over the inner surface of the hole before it could seal itself. On the 23rd, the doctor will reopen the wound and stitch it closed so the flesh can close the hole. It's been a long time coming.

    Eew!

    I liked the Pie Day story much better than BD's story. Although I wish him the best.

    You are planning on riding a route in a full circle, and riding all the way across the circle through the center, of course!

    1/23 is the day I find out if the Soma Sparrow bars I ordered are in fact the 490's I wanted, or if they are the 520's. If they are the 520's then I have to decide whether I call that good enough and keep them, or return them and keep waiting for the 490's. Soma told me 490's will be back in stock mid-January. It is cruel to have Pie Day in the middle of the winter.
