The old girl is back! (not you matagi)

She's been abused, shoved from pillar to post, molestered, called names, subjected to racial vilification, panned, and resurrected. Wow.

Just in time too. CF seems to have cacked itself tonight.

Did my first twilight race of the season tonight. Nearly missed the start having too long a warm up and had to hammer to catch my handicap group *smacks self in head*. I started at 3 minutes, we caught about half the riders ahead and stayed away from scratch which is all good. And I came second in our bunch sprint which is also reasonably good.

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

So we can go back to CF and read about "should I wear a base layer" and "why do I need gloves".

Is that why they wear the "special" undies in your neck of the woods Exxy? To keep the cold out?

Yeah, I flash the girls my undies all the time. I just pull my jeans up a bit, and you can see where they almost touch my socks.

Nah, we can narrow it down even further than that - he's in Utah, where the sale of alcohol is strictly controlled 'coz the Mormons don't drink.

Although, interestingly, you can buy beer in the supermarkets there. Ok, granted it is that flavoured water the seppos call beer, but it does have a notional alcohol content.

You can also buy it at nearly every servo. But no Sundee sales. I brought my Bundy OP with me. A little goes a long way.
