Kinda like a 58 year old refuge from an old episode of The Fugitive:




With no. 2 son in Montana last October.

Most current picture I could find. Bicycled to a tractor pull. The John Deere Model R is 5 years older than me.

This was taken this past Saturday on the Brain Tumor Alliance charity ride that included most of the Gulf Beaches.

The most recent. Cycling photos are all several (as in more than 5) years old.

Laughing too, but I'm not old enough to be a hippie. Real hippies have ten years or more on me. I was still in grammar school--and sporting a parent-mandated brush cut--for Woodstock.

Plus, I can't stand folk music. Kumbaya makes me retch. I get the heebie jeebies just typing it.

Give me the driving beat of club music--trance, house, drum & bass--and I'm a happy man.

OK, other than the few pictures of guys with their wives, these are all very disturbing.

The most recent that I have is this selfie from a few months ago. Was visiting an old friend in ICU. She would never forgive my not cropping her out of the pic.




The avatar is a pic of me twenty years from now.

You know? Red looks good on you.

One of these days I'll have to get up to your neck of the woods.

Tell Suzanne I said hello.

Bona fides for my username.



With Wifey. And my good friend Bucky, may he Rest in Peace.



And one with a bike.

Be honest. Do you think I'm too good looking for my height?

I usually wear red on the bike for visibility, mostly black other times for the, you know, slimming effect.
We'll look forward to your visit. Hope you can come by on a weekend I'm at home and not on the road.

I turn 51 next month. This pic of me is from Labor Day with my kids, any pics I have of me on my bike are both rare & awful


And this, of course, is my bike - which I just bought this summer after not really riding a bike... pretty much ever

You are going to rock that thing, youngster! Welcome to the surreal world of old folks, acting and smiling like young kids. My hope is that, in a short while, you'll need a new handle.
