RIDE A BIKE, ITS FUNNER!

thanks MG...for buying the first round, as the self confessed weakest link, I just did not want that to be me, it was the only little victory I was looking for, so I owe you one. :D
ran into Mg at the wrench while there for a quick gear adjustment. Thinking about some further commuter modification that I will have to talk over with the guys. Small wheel change maybe. And then saw Cornbread on the rock island. I was just so happy I recognized him. In case you ever thought I was being stuck up and ignoring you, while that is not completely outside the realm of reason, it is way more likely I just do not realize I know you. I sort of need people to be where I expect them to be to recognize them, it is odd, but then when I recognize them and they are not where I expected them to be, ok I know bike trail is a stretch on that one, I am just always so pleased with my recognition abilities even though really I do not have any of those.

day two...of the summer commuter challenge and yes I am still having fun, I do not owe anyone any beer. And I am already learning not to kill myself going home in the evening, take your time, have a nice ride, you can hurry in the morning if want or have too, no need to race toward the barn.
This morning I stopped at the the cup (there should be an accent on the second the) and had a delicious overly icing'd cinimuffin, yummy. I am getting used to this riding to work stuff fast.

the show was great...and that is really all I can say, I just love David Lindley too much to give a good review. And I loath those gushy everything was great reviews, those are not really reviews. But I will tell you about one great moment when he was starting a new song on a freaking beautiful Wisenborn, he carts around two and really makes them sing, sounds like there are three on the stage at one time. Anyway he broke a string mid intro, hissed out,"sonofabitch" and never missed a beat. What kind of brain is that, that can completely adjust and entire song in a split second for a now missing string, I will tell you what kind, a brilliant one.
Sorry to have missed thursday Syd, work has been late these days, maybe this week though, I am hopeful. Going to breakfast with some marathon running friends and then heading to work for what could be the rest of sunday, hopefully that will put a dent in it. Got the Kona Dew loaded with fenders, it is going to be the commuter, and talked to Nate about a handlebar change. I did the fenders, not sure if I can handle the bars. I will think about it, maybe just let them take care of it. Though I do like tinkering around with it myself.
