Here's mine as of a couple days ago (sorry if you saw it posted) just got a new cassette on it and started setting up the derailers today. Taking her out for my first ride on her in the morning.

Thank you. Yes, the east coast, and the northeast in particular, can be quite nice. Humid at times too, like this whole weekend.

FYI, we have "mesquites" here too, properly spelled "mosquitoes" and often pronounced with a curse word in front.

Yes, we need a new car now as well. The one car's motor was burned out. However it's back to school today, so the Scalextric is packed up.

That might imply I actually paid her wages! I like to consider these household chores. "Make your bed, brush your teeth, then clean my bikes!" Actually, she begs to help, which is nice (most of the time). I need to find her smaller gloves though.

Nice. Growing up in the Hudson Valley across the river from the Vanderbilt estate, I went there once on a school trip. I also had my junior prom there. Or at least, it started there, and ended somewhere else . What brought you out there?

I know you're joking but you probably have no idea how right you are. But anyway, the guy is Greek.

Oh, I know. For four years on Temple's campus I supported two Turkish families despite my burgeoning girth.

Well, as a fellow Temple grad I can attest cheesesteaks only really come from south Philly or the burbs. The good ones anyway.
