I'm a day late and a dollar short, as usual. Happy Anniversary to our two favorite BF members (Monica sends her best wishes also,) and great dinner/birthday celebration guests. I want to wish you both a very enjoyable future with lots of sunny, happy miles of cycling. You guys hurry back, the soup and pecan pie will be on the table waiting for y'all to stop by, again.

Bill and Monica

Thanks Bill! I hope you are riding well despite the health travails. A move to Canada in the not-too-distant future is in the planning stages. We will see how the dice roll in the new few months on a couple of job opportunities I have going at the moment.

Whatever the result is we both will always welcome you both here and the garage will have space for bikes. Please keep me up to date if you would.

Congratulations.

I knew Bike Forums must be good for something, but didn't think it would be a dating site.

Move over Tinder there's a new kid on the block.

You'd be surprised how many couples hae hooked up through Bike Forums. I am not sure of the exact number, but I know it's more than 10 couples, and probably closer to 20. IIRC, the site's founder, Joe Gardner and Shadiyah are among them.

I didn't know about the red, but do know about the tree.

And, Jon T, let me introduce you to 2manybikes... or should I say, Rowan meet Bailey.

My sister also has a corgi, called Teg.
