I think you mean it's 可笑しい ("okashii" if you don't have Japanese language support for your browser). You don't think I just watched TV the whole time I lay in bed recuperating, do you? I leafed through a variety of books and magazines, too.

I think I'll take my bike out for a spin the next time I'm free and the sun is out. Yay! It's been soooo long.

It shut down. I think this is a sign. Julie, you MUST stop using windows 95. Franzia says so.

ok, apologies all around.
first, i apologize for breaking my no-getting-off-rollers-and-going-straight-to-the-wine-box rule. to the guys in the crossfire of my breaking of that rule, i'm so sorry.

second, i apologize for breaking my no-posing-on-BF-after-tapping-the-wine-box rule. to anyone who read comments, i apologize.

third, i apologize for breaking my no-franzia-in-the-computer rule. needless to say, Win95 and franzia don't get along very well. that's ok, it was time to upgrade anyway. Does anyone have a Win98 machine they no longer want? must have modem. franzia-proofing is useful too.

Chimbly, if this has anything to do with why Joe rolled in here, it's best to drop him a PM and/or post in that thread he created. Otherwise, I'm sorry if I misinterpreted what you were saying in your I'm sorry post above.

Damn. And folks give me crap about using ME. Does anything even run on 95 anymore?

Don't know if I'll make tonight or not,might wind up having to work(why does crap only happen when I'm the on-call? ). If I come,I won't be doing much racing on the bumblecrow. It's the only bike I'm willing to run in the salt.

Anyone else tired of cleaning their bikes? Cripes,mine's so encrusted,I can't stop for more than a minute without being surrounded by deer. Why can't the District use cinders like they do in PA?

Just some thoughts....

As tradition goes we pre-ride meet at Sherwood. This is followed by sitting in the park for 30 min waiting for the slacker to show up

When its nice / warm / not wet this is all good and nice

When its cooled / wet this is not so much fun

Should we consider meeting up at Homebase for all pre-ride activities till spring? All I am saying is that some people are more or punctual than other.

Also, an alternative we could leave Sherwood no later than say 10 min. after the meeting time. NO MATER WHAT

Any thoughts?
