Are you feeling positive about somethng today?

I am!

I'll be heading off to work today, knowing that I'll be earning my living and being productive. Sure, I'd like to be off today to go and play but I know that I do get my days off and that is the time to do other things. I'd rather be employed than not and I'm very fortunate to be able to claim that. My body is able and my mind is still relatively there so I can go to work and function to the expectations that are needed to perform my job.

Work hard, be honest, and give what you can to others. Go with the flow.

It's a beautiful day. Go live.

You probably don't want me to tell you I'm going on a nice ride in about an hour.

What are the knives in your avitar?

Enjoy your ride and tell Bailey I said "Passing!"

The one on the top is the Benchmade Mini Skirmish and the one below that is the Benchmade MPR (mini pocket rocket)

Doesn't it feel great to get out there? It was pretty blustery yesterday, I wanted to get out but when there were branches falling, I figured I'd spend some play time with the doggies. Lake Chabot...doesn't that have certain days that bikes are allowed or did they ease up on that?

I feel like a positive pile of crap. Monday night I erupted into a Sinus Infection. Raw sinuses, phlegm, pus filled eyes and all that. By Friday it made its way into my ears and glands in my neck, clogging my hearing and leaving me half deaf and in a lot of pain. I finally went to a doctor and am now on Antibiotics, antihistamine , eye drops and cough syrup. During all this that last two days I forgot to take my reqular meds and now feel like crap from that too. I'm real close to wishing I would die. I feel like I am about to.

Life is good. Learning to live life a little better each day. Spent the morning painting stairwells and cleaning A/C strainers at church. Then stayed for a church picnic with the family, then a nap, then coaching T ball, then pizza with my boys, followed by walking the dogs and catching fire flies. Wife is off tonight at girls night out, so boys are in bed and I am having a vodka tonic and some foo.

Yeah Siu, there are worse places to be than at work. Thanks for your spirit, it is not unappreciated.

i feel crappy right now. But in a little bit I'm gonna try to get on my bike and if there's no more pain, then I'll go for a nice short pootle to the swap meet for some clothes shopping. That will cheer me up, I think.

Bikes are allowed all the time, it can get crowded, but the farther you go the fewer hikers.

That's always nice getting a discount, I love surprises!

Speaking of surprises, I got in the mail yesterday a gift from the ...uh....hang on, lemme go look. ~


The Benchmade Collector Secret Society, Down Under Chapter. But the address says it came from Tennessee.

It was a Benchmade folding attache carry case for my knives.

Didn't know this society existed. Found out they send gifts to those that shown a true interest in Benchmade knives and apparently they know enough about me because the pockets in the attache are the same amount of the Benchmade knives I have.

Another beautiful day today! It's windy and cloudy and it's going to rain, says the forecast. That means free car wash for everyone!! And clean streets and fresh air when it all subsides.

How would you feel after hitting 29 mph this morning on a mtb during the flat part of your commute.

Must have been the wind that was here yesterday.
I rode 40miles with a 20+MPH crosswind the whole time. My whole body hurts right now. (it sure was fun though!)

I had my friend who does not even like to get his road bike dusty, following me through the woods carrying our bikes over rocks and branches. It was fun.........ny.
Oh yeah, in bike shoes w/ cleats. Am I mean? Photos later after walking the dog.

I am now feeling positively dizzy and deaf after my ear infection. I hope they go away. The rest of the sinus infection pretty much did. A little coughing remains.

In the meantime my wife has decided that's it's not fair that I am not taking her out to eat, so she's starving me. Actually our eating patterns differ. I am big breakfast, light lunch and a small dinner; she's a snake - one big meal a day. She makes a huge dinner, knowing I won't eat much so she can eat it all. Of course, if the other meals are available, she gobbles those down too.

You know, the last time I was really sick, I went back to work way too early just to get away from her. Right now I don't know if I can make to work or stay upright all day. I almost wrecked my car yesterday, going out for Tylenol, I certainly cannot ride a bike.
