Our home is a creative one for sure, there is always music playing... mostly punk or jazz as I grew up in SoCal in the 70's. As you can see from The Descendents baby gear, she is 8 now, my daughter was destined to be a little sammie. That quote in your signature is one of my favorites, I loved that interview! The Clash are my lil' angel's favorite band but lately (thanks to Pandora) she has really been getting into The Misfits. Works out good for me, I get cool birthday gifts from her, like some Misfits shoelaces to go in the birthday riding shoes my wife bought me... my daughter and I quickly "decorated" them.
I always thought punk and bikes went together, but as I grew up realized that people take themselves and their cycling to seriously. As a young man in south Florida the ramps were alive with the sound of NOFX the Decendents, Social D etc. I think Fat Wreck and Epitaph own the soundtrack of my life. My wife is into Hip Hop but my daughter loves Rancid and Green Day they are more musical to her ear and have a cool beat so she can sing along. I'm 36 now have adult responsibilities but I feel more and more punk as I get older there is so much wrong that could be fixed if people just gave a damn..I feel like Steve Ignorant my feeling haven't changed but the impact of but it doesn't have the same impact when a slightly pudgy family man says or implies FU than it does when the same guy had more muscles and more attitude.

but yea I still still sing this on my way to work everyday
Ha- I've got 'ya by a few years but I think we're cut from the same cloth, I know exactly what you mean about the squish and muscles... my daughter enjoys reminding me once or twice a week that if I'm going to shake my fists at the world I should consider being more svelte to go along with that angst. Funny you mention Social D., my sister was in the same grade as Dennis in high school, Nessy was a couple years younger... Ness was the first guy to crack me on the mouth when I was 8 and he was 16 (yeah, I was being a mouthy kid) and for that my sister beat him into a pulp. The fool ended up on the ground right next to me! Sucka! Great memories for sure!!! Scotty Miller from Agent Orange was my assistant baseball coach, Mark Miller was my buddy and classmate and his dad and brothers were our coaches the first year we played little league. Growing up in Orange County in the 70's was the best... punk, BMX, skateboarding... daily life!!! Still is but now it's my daughter and I enjoying those same things 35 years later!

Just got back from a three day camping trip with the family. The kids (well most of them) enjoyed the mountain lake swimming and I got to do some huckleberry picking with my sister for the first time in many years. I love the smell of the evergreen trees - nothing better.





The view while berry picking:





A successful day:

Got a rare chance to sit in the front row at a Phillies game (losing will do that). Of course the best part of the game for the kids was this guy......

Yesterday was the last morning spent in my first house. It was nice a peaceful and relaxing morning, spent a lot of time on the porch swing. I handed over the keys to the new tenants today and i've got a good feeling about it. I think we found the proverbial needle in the haystack when it comes to them. Never thought i'd be a landlord....

I had to pic up some papers for a new job, starting tomorrow. Somehow I hit warp speed going through a beautiful forest on an old roadster. Strange.

Did some more mountain berry picking yesterday and it clearly wiped out my 9 yo's - this was on the way home.

Welcome Jacob....if you are having a blast on that...it is good training for when you get a lighter bike, you will REALLY fly then! I am assuming you have chrome rims on that, be careful in the wet. IF you find a good deal on alloy wheels...GRAB it, that was the biggest improvement on my old 79 LeTOur



Picked this up last week. 1980 schwinn traveler. My first road bike and I really love it.

I think that might be a Varsity. I had a 1978 for a while, and I still have an actual 1980 Traveler frame, although I don't use it any longer. The frames are quite different.
