Gawd, I've been trying!!!!


And I apologize to one and all, because I confess ...

I've been doing some office work at home here instead of paying attention to BF.

<Hangs head in shame>

I'm, I'm so sorry ...


Now ... who wants to come over and clean out two well used kitty boxes and a smelly arse rabbit??

Come on - I know you want too!!!!

(putting off the dirty deeds I am)

No, the snails are actually burned. Not enough water inthe steamer for the escargot. Boy oh boy is that an awful smell. "What an amazing smell you've discovered your higness!", Han Solo to Leia.

Well we are getting together to ride and you were invited but you never replied. I'll take it that you won't be going. Even though you DID say you'd reserve that date for us. pfffffffffft.

Got the lower end Rockhopper, not what I wanted as I intended on saving thru the winter for a Kona, oh well. I need something now that will satisfy my commute and trails with a tight expense factor.

It's nice and ... blue ... my first ever bike of "color" (for some reason all the bikes I get are brushed aluminum, goldish or black and more black). Little tall though, but I like a larger bike than what they say I should ride.


Took a nice set back on the stolen bike - insurance sucks. Have a guy supposedly driving in from a city 45 minutes away to talk to me about the claim - good grief. Washing my hands of the whole ordeal.

Have a few items I'm swapping out all ready to go too.

And I like being back in the thick of things as well ... using the roadbike for commute sucks, badly. And the fun factor for the commute is gone . The route the I've chosen within the city includes jumping over a small barracade betewen building, no to mention countless 12" curbs (hehe, gotta say - I clipped in this afternoon and started down the sidewalk to the street and ALMOST jumped the curb - till I realized, ugh, roadie - dam it. Miss it.
