Why, thank you Miss Kenton (and you, too, my British brother)... it *is* nice to be remembered. Gosh, yes, another one.
The bummer is, I probably won't even be able to get a ride in today OR this weekend. It's so nice out today, too
And I could use some miles to start burning off our own March Madness. But, after tonight, the Madness is over.

Whoop Yoop ripper, and I wish you a very happy cup of tea and a cucumber sandwich with the crust neatly trimmed.

(Personally, I'd prefer a half gallon of Knights Ferry, but that's just between you and me)

Take care, pal

I don't want to steal SKT's birthday thunder, after all, it's his day, but I have to ask the British boys...What does Whoop Yoop ripper mean? I tried to google it- nothing!
I understand the tea & cuke sandwiches and I can figure out the Knight's Ferry but...Whoop Yoop ripper?!?!

OK, I lied. It was just too nice a day.
I could've -should've- gone for my shots but, no, the road, it called.
Just a short 11 mile cruise. Some effort made but mostly just a joy ride. Smiles per miles and all that.
Here are some cell phone shots. It was a nice birthday.

I hate to try and Educate our Fellow brethren but I am afraid that this a term of explanation that is totally Inexplicable. The nearest I can get to it would be found in the anals of Public school terminology. It would be the upper class slang- for "Congragulations you spiffing old Chum" But it is more than that.

But as I dragged up within the National State system- I could be wrong and wobbly could just be saying that it is about time that SKT got out on his bike and showed us more pics of his local scenery.

Means nothing beyond emoting exhilaration and enthusiasm - appropriate, I feel, to a bike enthusiast. Also, I'm not sure why it sprang to mind - on reflection, it might be more in the spirit of Australian than UK demotic?

Anyway, it's what I felt like wishing to Mr Tai!!

Wow! Nice photos, especially from a cell phone! My cell phone photos turn out about as clear as an ultrasound, I can't even figure out what they are supposed to be! Moreover half the photos on my phone are accidental photos of my own knees! Nice work, SKT, glad you had a nice birthday!
