In the meantime, I guess we'll have to stick to bungee-cording a box of this stuff to a rack:

The correct answer is
An Acme Handbook
Acme Dynamite
and an Acme 5 ton anvil.

FINALLY - sheesh the desk has been nonstop. Yes, I did fill my pockets ...
______________________________

And so I contemplated ... A Total Pheard Quest!! Use my Ultimate Roadie Jersey Pockets as a Total Grocery Cart!!! A FOO idea!

Bicycle jersey pockets can hold EVERYTHING! I mean I’ve gone to trade shows, etc and have used those meaningful jersey backpockets as a means to transport half eaten food items and drinks (I have), paper things, maps, pamphlets, business cards, etc – and, oh yeah, as what they’re supposed to be used for as pockets for food-on-the-road thingees, etc.

But now it’s time to think more worldly on this! Pheard is the next Neon hero, but my goodness – new ideas!!! --- FREEDOM IS AT HAND!!!

Free! I freed myself of local bulky bags to prep for the evening shopping commute.



No tool bag, big or mini backpack and only one water bottle! It’s JUST me and my jersey – and my three Streeeetchy pockets! Hey, if Pheard can do it, then so can I! Let’s take advantage of my roadbike and jersey at the moment while I have it on the road as my commuter for the week!

So off I went – I can’t tell you, as a commuter, how FREE I felt as I made my way down the road with all necessary repair tools tucked neatly and equally balanced within the three pockets. So nicer looking down at the roadie too without encumbrances! I like this! And the bike is so ... much ... FASTER! (hehe).

Even barhopped with BALL too. BTW - his nickname is Santa.



First stop – supper. Purchased a Snausage at little Russian Grocery Shop – they allowed me to take an “official” picture(s) at shop, yet no one wanted to take my picture with snausage hanging out of my jersey (Hmmmm, they kept talking Russian under their breath as they motioned “No” or “NYET” to me ...). Oh yeah and also purchased a small “M&M” type bag that contains chocolate covered sunflower seeds – excellent stuff – purchased in a Russian grocery, yet produced in Taiwan – go figure.



They seem to really like pickles.

Next stop – Liquor store where I park my bike inside (good to be an ex-bartender) while I shopped at other stores in strip mall – which included buying a banana and red onion, oh yeah and a small <cough> purchase from liquor store (well hell, I used it as a parking lot!). Got a picture of bike and BALL in liquor store, but still no takers to snap picture of me and my stuffed jersey (can you blame them??).



Next to Final stop – Friend’s house where (she laughed at me) I was given a “potato something” wrapped in foil from last Sunday’s picnic. Still not sure what it is – but I brought it home. It weighs a freaking poundr – BUT DARN IT I BROUGHT IT HOME!!!! And in the back jersey pocket too. Take that Pheard – try transporting bad food stuffs, hehe.

Final Stop – Beer. Yep. By stuffing other water bottle (BALL occupied other bottle cage) in the last few inches of those handy-dandy back jersey pockets – I discovered I had ROOM for a BEER!! So I purchased one and hid it effectively under a clear (asked for an off color, sigh) grocery sack – so it rode righteously home right next to BALL. Yes, bottle cages DO have other uses ...

Finally – ME. Mom thought I was a nut, as usual, and decided not to be part of these follies so I had to set the timer for this posterior shot. Now I’m not one to deliberately be photographed like this, but I thought it was funny to just see what else I could stuff into the back of the jersey. Ya know, I could have stuffed more in there too ...

Proof! Ha! (of course I snuck outta the house to take the picture - and snuck back in too, hehe)





What a load!


On a final note, I’ll stick to my under-seat tool bag for bike tools and commuter backpack for other bicycling situations. Oh yeah and as for the bottle cages ... And yes, my local area knows me well. I’m the “wild chic on the bike” in all weather, so my bicycling follies this evening went more or less unnoticed by most. Perhaps a good thing, hehe.

Huh, so those pouches on the back of the jersey are pockets. And here I thought they were mini parachutes to keep you from going to fast on downhill descents. Guess i shouldn't have cut them off then.
