Birthday Ride Report
Had a prefect ride-my-age ride, actually on my birthday for a change.

Lena called out the glass, but I was already into it, and the puncture was so bad that I could feel the air against my leg as it deflated. [I didn't discover until the restaurant that the sidewall was split, and the tube was bulging out like Arnold Schwartzenegger's hernia. I booted it with two one-dollar bills, and made it home.]
Grilled fresh snapper.

This is where I cache my lock for future trips:

Note that fighting is allowed, but not after 10 PM.

As often happens, it looked like a storm was coming, but there was none.

And my birthday "cake" was a low-carb cheesecake, shaped like a pie (all my recipes are found here).

That's actually coffee, but the cream is so thick, it floats on top.

If you were born in 1952, we're birthday twins.

Here's my birthday ride:

I got a couple of kudos for it, probably because wind-kite surfing is no mean feat in Shepardsville, Kentucky.

Actually my daughter and I went go-karting. I smoked all the other drivers, an assortment of squirrelly 14 year olds, and morbidly obese tattoo queens. Wearing a polo shirt and khakis, I felt a bit overdressed. But it was fun.

Happy birthday to both you guys. You share a birthday with my mother who turned 81 today. We just returned home from spending the evening with her.

Happy Birthday, Al! You, too, Mr. Dudelsack! Nice to hear that young guys can have fun on their b-days (I'm 62).

My Dad would have been 100 years old on September 14. I miss him all the time.

A belated happy bday! I passed you yesterday just before the bottom of the steep hill north of Hammond bridge, was riding with a buddy. I called out but you were zooming south. We'll meet up sometime I'm sure.
