Every year for the past four years I have attended "Women's Specific Night" at my favorite Jersey bike store, Danzeisen & Quigley. They always have speakers who talk on a variety of cycling topics as they relate to women, wine & snacks, goody bags, door prizes and a raffle for a bike.
This year, the proceeds of the raffle benefited the MS Society. My thoughts turned to True-Gritter Mrs. Cranky, and I bought $15 worth of tickets. I WON THE RAFFLE! I now own a brand new Trek Alpha! Not as nice as the Trek I already own, but an excellent +1 for me!!!
Some of you may recall I had my Trek 1000 stolen a few years ago. After it happened, Louis sent me this Poem:
On Her Return
On her return
Will she forgive?
Some new bits...a nice gesture, but
Only time is truth.
Your time, and lots of it.
Perhaps, if the gods have been appeased
And take pity on your lot,
You will feel her love again.
Well, Louis! I guess I got her back!!
