My wife would probably kill me if I tried to go on one in the morning. So I'm off now while she is sleeping.

Have a nice holiday everyone, Merry Christmas.

I rode to my friend's house tonight and it was gorgeous out; crisp and clear and no cars at all, perfect for a nice ride. I hope the same is true for tomorrow, I love this time of year.

Not really.....I got a ton of chocolate so that means I have to bicycle more to work off all the calories I will be consuming, does that count? My family knows that I have pretty much every bicycle-related thing I could ever need so the next best thing is chocolate, gotta love them for that

Foiled. I'm actually going to ride out to Kensington later instead. Maybe I'll see you over there.

Definately the clip of the day:

'Chickens Playing Piano' from the Muppet Show. Is this the pinnacle of human creativity? Maybe so.

Yes Iíve wanted rollers for a while & have mentioned it in passing a couple of times & someone was listening cause i now have! So i gave it a try dam not so easy, very difficult actually i'll need to practice up big time. I also got a Aero Carbon TT Fork off evil bay last week its very nice but my track nuts donít fit in the quick release space & my axels are solid so damm gotta figure that out.
But the hit of the day was a couple of hermit crabs along with a nice little tank.
Cheers
Merry x-mas
Ronin njs for life ha ha, very nice

Yeah, I tried to photograph the slogan but it didn't turn out. I'm gonna get a better shot of it...

It reads: "The possibility for victory is unlimited."



Man, you gotta love that!

Got the bad I wanted from MEC, nice multi tool, and a cool retro bell from the wife. Old style silver with the lone ranger on it.

I'm up for a coffee in the morning. What time were you figuring to be at I deal?
