You gotta have a sense of humor. Hope no one issues a fatwa on me.
I'll take one of those!

It's hard to repent when you feel so little remorse.

Hey Im doing what needs to be done.
might take some time but I want to go to Cycle Heaven where you get to ride Colnago's

Pastor Bob will only forgive us only if we clean.

I am following a 7 step program-
(clean every day for a week!)
I got tomato boxes from the store and started sorting the bits.
deraileurs
brakes
cables
cranksets
etc..

what on earth was I thinking saving steel 3 piece cranks and positron stuff!
at least 6 junk citybike frames got terminated, steel wheels and ripped. seats.
junk just flows when you flip bikes.



I want one of those stickers also!
count me in!

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the House of the bike forever.
Very well done. A re-writing of the 23rd Psalm. Now if you can sing it, that would really grab my attention. Absolution granted!

Since you are soon to head off to the middle of the India Ocean, to serve our country and help promote world peace, etc., and this looks really neat to my eye in the first place, Absolution Granted!

Just provide me with an address to your storage unit so I can raid it while you are away for the next year.

So now we know why you don't have a GF! You spend too much time in your bike cave! Time to get out and meet some gals. I can do weddings too.

Just in case any one is wondering, a certificate has been prepared. A completed one will be emailed upon the granting of Absolution.

Well, I don't have that much stuff-- it all fits into one small room, so I shan't repent yet. My marriage works because my wife is worse than me-- she gets the rest of the house, including the yard, roof, and street, for her garden. The place looks like an unrestored Mayan pyramid just discovered in the jungle.
