Took the Le Champion out for a chilly spin today. Barnstable Harbor in the background.

Thanks Doohickie. This was its shake down cruise. Weather has been so funky and/or cold, I hadn't ridden it until today! I like it. But I'm going to have to get used to that Cinelli saddle. Been 35 years since I've ridden one of those.

heh, I guess I've never been much of a smiler Colonel. Plus, too cold to smile.

Bike looks big, doesn't it? I'm standing in a bit of a hole.

No SeedsB. Found it just like that. South end of the island of Bonaire, last month.

This is C&V. Nobody smiles in old photos. He's just playing the part.

Btw, I see you are standing in a slight depression, but that bike looks huge next to you. From the looks of it, you don't have near enough stand-over height, or am I wrong?

Ya think there's any hope? This is a five minute walk up the road from our house in High Falls. I'm new to country living, and it's weird for me to see all these decrepit or abandoned barns and houses. I'm pretty sure this house isn't occupied. At least I hope it's not. But there are some pretty sorry looking houses that are actually occupied.

This is the season to actually figure that stuff out. The snow hasn't been cleared, and I don't see any footprints... And it looks like there's a chimney missing in the middle of the house.

I remember seeing little houses like this all over the countryside of Pennsylvania when I lived there. Fascinating stuff.

That frame is a 63. On the tall side for me. But it's fine. I am standing in a pretty good depression in the sand. 2 to 3 inches below the wheels.
As far as smiling, I'm smiling inside. Would be smiling outside too ...but my teeth were cold. :>

Spotted these two six feet apart against the wall of the The Hague University of Applied Sciences. That Pinarello looks like it would be the perfect size for mrs non-fixie.

That Pinarello must make the rider's butt wet and cold.

Nice. Gonna do some roasting tonight? That knife handle could use some mineral oil!

Played "reach in madness" the other night. Leftover coq au vin tossed with some rigatoni, parm, parsley and a little heavy cream.

^^^ Freshly roasted^^^

It is Chestnut season here... if you are Italian and even if you are not they let you buy them from the market and roast them.

My new Mora is sucking up a little oil now... the factory oil is there but it is very light and we have a very dry climate.

Looks like a Blue Heeler, on of my favorite breeds. They're such spunky little dogs!
