    I carried a case of cheap Champagne from Captain Eric to Farmer Mac. I couldn't make this stuff up.

    I brought my greyhound to the vet today, in my bike trailer. She didn't want to get in. And I made her get in, and she stepped on the prong of a buckle, and it pierced her foot, going through the web between her toes. It went clear through, and I had to pull it out. Ouch! Well, good thing we were headed for the vet, right?

    Once she got settled in, she seemed to enjoy it quite a bit. And of course, I got priceless looks from pedestrians. "Hey, look, it's a dog!"

    Jeez Tom, that must have been one sharp buckle!! What kind of a trailer do you have? It must be large, or you have a young greyhound.

    I have panniers, but today, I loaded up with bottles of flea and tick spray from our years living in Ohio and dropped it off at a garden center collecting unused pesticides this weekend.

    On the way out there, I stopped at a company and dropped off someone's rear view mirror parking tag I found in a gutter on the other side of town a few months ago. I found it a good 8 or more miles away. I don't usually head to that part of town, so it was lucky that I remembered I had the tag in my pannier.

    I had 3 small peat pots and a small plastic pot with tiny parsley plants from our garden. Someone at work planted some parsley seeds earlier at a work garden, so I thought it'd be fun to see handsful of parsley plants suddenly showing up when they come back to work on Monday! I stashed the pots in a plastic sack in the panniers and brought a digging tool in case. I used an extra water bottle I brought along for the purpose of watering the sprouts I planted. I wasn't seen doing this by any employees, I don't think, so the joke should work.

    After another errand stop, I rode to Lowe's and picked up a gallon of paint and some painting accessories to paint our peeling sunroom exterior. Note to self, when there's a gallon of paint, a standard kickstand will not keep up a lwb recumbent loaded with the gallon of paint on the left pannier. I had thought I was being clever putting it NOT on the side with the derailleur where it might bang against it. Other than that, the paint came home fine. I am writing this instead of painting the sunroom, but hey, there's always Sunday.

    Definitely want to get a trailer now and see what all else I can schlep home by bike. I also HAVE to get a cycle computer, I am getting tired of mapquesting my trips to get mileage estimates to log.

    It wasn't a sharp buckle. The prong is plastic. But greyhounds are very thin skinned. You know that bit of skin between the achilles heel and the shin? Both dogs and humans have it. On one of my (two) greyhounds, you can see through it in bright sunlight.

    It's well past time to take the Ute in for its first tune-up, so I decided to be clever and strap my Brompton to the back. The idea was to ride the Ute to the shop, unload the Brompton, and ride it home. I took quite some time getting it on securely and making sure it didn't slide around too much, rode the 3 miles to the LBS very slooooowly and carefully, unloaded and locked up, THEN saw the sign on the door saying they're closed today for a bike race. D'oh! Well, at least now I know it can be done:



    Next time, I'll use straps to cinch it down--bungees worked OK but were a little too stretchy for this purpose.

    Today was primary day here. I rode the bike into the nearby town to vote. It's the first dry day we've had in a while so I enjoyed it since the rains are to move back in tonight. I got a taste of what it's going to be like when they repave the highway this summer. They're doing preliminary work and had signs set up along the shoulder, forcing me to ride into the right lane, which isn't too pleasant since the speed limit on longest portion that I ride is 55 and everyone speeds so they're really going faster. That said, it was a beautiful day to be on the bike. At the polling place, the locals laughed that I locked my bike. (I'm city born and bred and lock everything. I'm not about the change my habits here.) Although, there wasn't anything good to lock to so I suspect I would have gotten a D or F if Hal from You Tube fame had graded my locking pattern.

    The u-bolts holding it in place became "slippery when wet" today while hauling about 300 pounds in the rain, turning my trailer into a plow. Dragging a 300lb plow blade off the street and onto the sidewalk is not easy. I had to call dispatch to send a car to rescue the packages. When he got there he complained that they should have sent a truck, but I helped him get it all into his small sedan.

    I carried the proper size wrenches for my trailer everyday for over a year and never needed them. Recently, I changed the tool kit I carry and I forgot to put those damn wrenches in it.

    Sorry, I not only dropped the load, I dropped the ball on photo documentation. Yeah, I know "pictures or it didn't happen" especially from a "show and tell" guy like me, but I was too busy getting the packages out of the drizzle and under a Starbucks awning.

    Picked up my road bike from its wheel build. I had brought it in my kiddie trailer, wheels off and tucked in under the frame. I retrieved it, in this pouring steady windy rain, by riding home on my utility and keeping my right hand on the stem of the road bike.

    Took the lawn clipping's down to the recycling depot today. Funny my mom's reminding me to remember my ID incase im asked for it, since only area resisdents can drop there. I was like "You think they'd think I'd haul 50+ lbs of yard waste from another area?" ah well. The new guy there now knows me pretty well and never checks me.

    After the drop I did some diving into their metal bin. Looking for some nice scrap to build some side skirt/fenders for the trailer with. Found a little kid bike instead, still works.

    Gonna clean it up and see if the neighbors kid wants it, else to the SPCA thirf store down the street.

    Our recycling center has a new rule: no picking trash up. My wife and I are furious. (I'm disappointed, she's furious, as she's Queen of Recycling.) We're going to talk to the authorities about this.

    Ours has a sign stating that, but it's never enforced, unless you make a huge mess.

    The aluminum has value. If taking materials away from the site was allowed, someone would come and take all the aluminum. The recycling center would then become more expensive to operate.
