    OK that's enough.

    I fixed all the little things inside the house.

    I built things like a ramp for the dog trike that need to be done inside.

    All the bikes are ready to roll right now. Just grab one and go.

    I made sure the cars are all in good shape.

    I've called everyone and done everything that needed to be done.

    I have all my cold weather gear working just the way I like it. It all works great in sub zero temps.

    I got every thing done.



























    I've had it ! This is enough cold, warm, cold, warm, windy, weather, I'M DONE WITH THIS STUFF !!!!!Now I just want to ride my bike with no jacket. I want to be too hot !




    That's enough of this cr p.

    Time for a beer and a classic movie. Unplug the phone, turn off the computer, put on some slippers, grab some munchies and relax.

    Can't do that anymore, been doing it too much. I need to be climbing a big hill in the heat, soaked with sweat. I need to try and get the dog trike to 20 mph. I need to turn around 50 miles from home and discover I have a huge headwind,.................................................. on my track bike.

    i've always told people that early march is the worst. it's the time where you most want winter to end but it still clings on. sorta warm one day, but then quickly turns cold and teases you back and forth like that.

    Bored?

    Gots a flat on my mtb downstairs, not changing it out though cause I am really not happy with the stock tires I got on it when I bought it less than a year ago (always meant to replace them ... but you know how it goes - if it ain't broke, don't fix it - but these tires just don't do it).

    Course I feel it's going to be one of those things ... I'm going to the bike show in Toronto, plus hitting a few shops ( Duke's) and am planning on purchasing tires for roadie and mtb - know what I want in tire techs. so if I don't find something that meets my ideals - then it's online because the LBS's just carry certain brands and if ya don't do some investigating into stuff you really want/need and just go by whats sitting on the shelf, well there's a lot to miss. Have bad feeling - you know how it is to have some saved $$ in your pocket with intentions on purchasing an item that meets your qualifications - and ya don't find it.

    and if nothing is purchased, then you can stop over and fix the flat so I can commute next week.



    I'll even bring down the blinding work light and put it on ya, and I swear it can give you a good tan as well.

    We just got another 7" of snow overnight dumped on top of our already 16" of snow. Can't say I feel to sympathetic to your situation. I won't be biking for at least another month. I'm a fair weather rider

    SWEET!!

    Talked with my friend tonight (she's "JuciLuci" on another bicycle forum, hehe) and it looks like Toronto (she lives right in the entertainment district) got a good 10" dump of snow last night (Tues) - accompanied by thunder/lightening as well ... and the sidewalks are not in the best condition.

    I'm heading up (via Greyhound - yeah - I'm the commuter ...) Friday, but not hitting the show till Saturday - probably around noon or so (have to hit the St. Lawrence mkt in the am on Saturday).

    I'm going there Saturday - and will most likely be dressed in either all black, all red or black/red - cause I'm packing very lean cause I'm not trotting around Toronto with a heavy backpack anymore, plus we're hitting the gym so it's all workout and bike stuff that I'm wearing/traveling with. And I'm blond and I'll be with my greatest best friend is shorter and a brunette.

    hehe, just look for the two women with silly grins on their faces.

    I'm going in for close out kinda deals - but man - I was there a few years ago - went shopping the day before and walked into the place with paltry $$ - and at that time - I WAS looking for a medium type of jacket - not Summer, not full winter - and I found it for $60 and have kicked myself several times too. It was soooo me (and had all the options I wanted) - and the color - <groan> a total washable pure white with a silver kinda panel that went up the body sides and also appeared on the outward arms. Do not know who made it, have not seen anything like it since.

    I shall not ever make that mistake again (hehe, even guaranteed it by arriving in Toronto at 6 pm - hitting China Town for supper and heading back to her place).

    I only live 40 minutes outside of downtown Toronto. But it looks like it was far enough away to avoid the additional 3 inches of snow. We only got 7 inches. They get some nasty lake-effect snow.

    I have a feeling I'll recognize you if I see you. I'll make sure to introduce myself if I do.

    I wish the wind would stop blowing and it wouldn't be so warm.

    Every passing minute is another chance to turn it all around.

    Beautiful weather where I am. Headed for 35 deg C this weekend. Plenty of hills to climb and coast down. Maybe even a seabreeze to ride into in the afternoon.

    C'mon 2many, you know you want to come to Australia!!!

    Just as a slight deviation from the topic... how is JL doing? Has she recovered pretty well now and is she outdoors riding lots?

    The obvious solution is to start breaking stuff.

    I do, and they do, thanks for playing.

    Todays breakage was a nearly full jar of shrimp pellets for the cory cats. Border collies and catfish will eat the same food. Who knew.

    HEY, 2MB, maybe you can experiment with Bailey and food, start a "Will Bailey Eat It?" thread. Post a proposed food, let us vote if it will be eaten or not, and then offer it to Bailey.

    I hope to live long enough to play senile and go to my kids' house and "accidentally" break all their stuff.

    The concept is great! The only problem is he eats everything. Even non food things.

    One of my kids is moving home again, that will take care of the "nothing to fix" problem.

    Lots of good stuff!

    timmhaan said it the best, March gives you a preview of the nice weather coming, then It takes it away.
