So,....

So, well, anyhow


So, it's still a bit warm here

So, the wife is due to bring me back the new Brooks to put on my older-but still-good ride

So, I wasn't able to go fetch it myself - boring and frustrating passport issues

So, there's a century one day, metric the next, planned for a weekend in October as a fundraiser for EOD wounded (Explosive Ordnance Disposal, bomb disposal heroes), and we should be able to raise a couple of hundred riders

So, umm, well, and err, wha'ver

So, you send your wife out of country to pick up a bike saddle?

So, I must have married the wrong gal.

Erm, well, y'know

Picking up the saddle wasn't her first mission, although important. My role was to stay here, assuring the free world's supply of ignitable hydrocarbons and buying her and the offspring's tickets firstly to California and thence to UK, where I was to join them (and, among other pleasures, to buy bike stuff)

It's an honour and a pleasure to serve. But, the chaps who were renewing my residence permit didn't do so in time for me to leave for the planned leave.

I mean. like. So. Whaddya, y'know. I mean.

Sew buttons on ice cream and watch 'em slide off.

Bad boys. Bad boys all.

According to BikeSnob, LSD flashbacks are a myth. Is this true? Do you ever, like, see giant lizards where you would reasonably not expect to see them? And what do they try to do to you?

Ok, so it's still pretty hot here. Humid too. Wonder where my old English teacher is these days. Prolly rolling over in his crypt.

Sentence fragments detected above and where might giant lizards NOT be expected?

Will no one uphold standards?

Let's just hope WOG doesn't end up stateless.

You mean there are places it is not reasonable to see giant lizards?
