I was with a friend of mine who was a professional race car driver at an SCCA event in Texas, where he was renting his Toyota Atlantic to a younger driver and doing a bit of mentoring. As us pit crew guys were walking back to the garage, we were all discussing how hot the young drivers girlfriend was. We turned around to find his father following us back to the garage, well within ear shot. It was uncomfortable.

One of the few things that are better on the way up than the way down.

I hold my tongue a lot in meetings at work for this reason, I hate eating my words. I only speak out on something that I'm 100% sure on or there's open discussion.

Momma, always told me that is was better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to open my mouth and remove all doubt. Isn't it wonderful the lessons we learn from our Mommas!!!

Now I lay me down to sleep
Keep my bike safe from the bicycle thief
Keep my tootsies toasty warm
keep my carbon from any harm

Good Night Road Bike
Good Night Moutain Bike
Good night all you Foosters
And good night Moon
