Cranky wants to play!!!!

I've healed nicely from my little altercation with the Structural Steel at work last week. The broken skin has healed over, the bruises have subsided, and the teeth have been repaired. I was a good boy and I stayed off the bikes for a whole week (of course it's been cold and stormy so that wasn't too hard to do).

Now Cranky wants to play!

If time permits I'll start commuting to work tomorrow night, as we have a noontime dinner party at the in-laws house across town to celebrate a few birthdays...including my wife's, so I kinda sorta gotta be there. If we are home in time I'll be hopping on the old Trek and pedaling in to work at dusk, if not I will on Monday night for sure.

I hope to find a little time during my days off to take a ride around the local parks also. The leaves are about at their colorful Autumn peak right now. I love the sound of riding over those fallen leaves in 50ish degree crisp, clean air!

Oh yeah! I'll keep my eyes peeled for BengeBoy's keys too. Ya never know what you'll find along side the road.

Good to hear you are back and in full working order. I guess I missed the details on the accident, I really hope that there was nothing serious there. I'll stop in downtown and let Gov Patterson know to tell the state police to clear the roads for you...

Has the I-beam been painted hi-viz orange?
