It's been a good week ...

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

It's been a good week ...

It's been a good week ...

My wife just had minor surgery. Not the bad kind, the kind where you
get stuff added to your body. Let’s just say the augmentation was a
success.

Well, it seems she was feeling a little guilty about the money we spent
on her and suggested that I get something for the bike so she wouldn’t
feel so bad. I hate it when my wife isn’t happy and began to think of
the PowerTap hub I was going to try and finagle for Christmas. I made
sure it was enough to relieve her guilt and as a result, I ordered a brand
new PowerTap Pro/Open Pro wheel set. They’re arriving tomorrow. She
feels much better now.

Yes, it’s been a very good week …

Doesn't your wife realize that both of those (power tap and augmentation) were for you?

The implants made me do it! No really...as much as my STBX would like to believe that, it was years (the divorce thang) in the making and the surgery had nothing to do with it.
