    Got a thumbs up today!

    I went to the local mountain bike trails today near a large university.
    Kept meeting a couple of college kids on the trail. As I was leaving I rode through the parking area and they were sitting on their truck tailgate. We waved and one of them said "I want to be like you someday."
    That really made my day. Then I went home and trimmed my grey beard.
    more cops have been killed by donuts than guns in chicago it is a medical fact ask any doctor.

    Smart, kid. Wanting to get old makes a lot of sense when you think about it.

    It beats the alternative.
    Having a flat tire as part of the total cycling experience is highly overrated. Knowing how to fix one quickly is not.

    Well done!

    Obviously, you gave a good account of yourself and also represented the bearded ones here, admirably.
