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

Re Mormons and alcohol: Actually, the story goes:

Never only take 1 Mormon fishing...if you do he'll drink all the beer! If you take 2 Mormons though, all the beer will be for you and they'll drink lemonade!

Can't attest to the veracity, not being in Utah, but that's the old joke!

For anyone not following the story on the Dark Side, the annual Aussie Thread ride is on the 19th November in a place near you. All welcome, bring coins for coffee.

Northern Division riders are meeting at Wyong Railway Station at 9am for coffee, hit the road by 10am for a loop of Tuggerah Lake. Back for lunch. Keener riders are starting out from Terrigal at 8am and riding to Wyong. Skinsuits are NOT permitted.

Southern Division are still organising route and meeting place. TBC

Expat can organise the Mormons, they're always up for a nice bike ride.

I happen to be enjoying a nice cuppa melted crayons at this very moment. Not many riders these days, with the temps hovering around 1 for parts of this past weekend. But I did the yard up nice for Halloween.

It's really not that bad here. I'm just happy when we're sitting on the lunch room at work, and it's someone else going on about how nutty Mormon's are.

Orem, Utah just rated #12 on the FBI's list of safest cities in the US. Right behind my old home on Thousand Oaks, which was #11. T.O. has a homicide, on average, maybe once in 6-8 years. Not bad for a city well over 100k people.

I've said this before, but if I'm desperate for a perve in the middle of winter, I ride home past the train stations to watch the cute office chicks getting off work. I had a route from the beach to Benlteigh: Sandringham, Hampton, Brighton, Ormond, Bentleigh, then home

Ever thought about moving? How about Sale or Bairnsdale? Bigger populations so more likely to find some skinnier chicks.
