REPENT ye unclean hoarders and ye shall be forgiven!!

The Time has come,
to clean up your act and start anew!
Some of "Sinners" with our heathen ways with hoards of junk under the workbench,cupboards,and in every corner of the house, shed and celler want to come clean and repent!

Presbyterian Pastorbobnlnh
has the power to forgive us, set us straight, and lead us on the right cycling path.

One must admit shame first..
take good pictures of your "Den-O-Sin" as it is this very moment.
do not wait for tomorrow!!!


After the purging and cleansing,
organize the stuff and make the place fitting for a woman to visit.
you must then take new pictures and ask forgiveness and pray....

Pastorbob will inspect your images and decide if you are "Worthy of Absolution".

If you are forgiven you will be issued a certificate of Absolution to proudly hang in your workshop, to remind you not to go astray again.

This is no joke! Pastor Bob has heard of my shame, It is a weight I can not bare much longer,

JOIN IN ALL YE SINNERS!!!
for you may be FORGIVEN!!

Dear Pastor Bob,
I come to confess....
I hang my head in Shame!!!
I admit this is my DEN-O-SIN
I will start right away to make a new start.


The filth floweth out into the garden!!

You can start by shipping me that red white and aqua Mixte, but only if it is a 58+

I just spent a few hours cleaning, but it was throwing yard waste into a dumpster. The bike and parts collection is unchanged. I suppose I am unrepentant right now.

I wish it was a 58- its a 55 but my wife rides it anyway-Crescent, found in scrap pile-I put air in the tires-nothing more, she has been riding it all summer.

COMBI-admit your shame and take a pic...put your camera where your mouth is...Christmas is coming,
my Mancave will take a week to clean

this should be a fun game

The Bike is my Shepherd; I shall not want.
He taketh me to ride through green pastures:
He leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul:
He leadeth me in the paths of the Fred's and Salmon's for His name' sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of fixies,
I will fear no evil: For thou art with me;
Thy cranks and thy handlebars, they comfort me.
Thou preparest a workbench before me in the presence of mine mistakes;
Thou annointest my head with chain lube; My parts bin runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the House of the bike forever.

If you hoard French "junk" in the "special" way I do,.........you might be forgiven and allowed to keep as much French stash as you can!......

So...just how much does one have to have "stashed" to be considered a "Hoarder"? Or is it a title bestowed upon one by one's spouse. :-) Or is there some formula Bike part/Sq Ft...if you cannot walk through, or no workbench visible under the pile?

My eldest sister told me that over the phone, and I laughed so hard I nearly dropped the receiver. Liked it so much I had some custom bumper stickers made. Alas, everyone I sent them to didn't have the guts to stick them on their cars, aside from Auchencrow. I notice some pretty strange reactions in my rear view mirror at stop lights.
You gotta have a sense of humor. Hope no one issues a fatwa on me.
