Just wash that pain down with another Jelly doughnut, you'll be fine.

So, city work leads to obesity? What % of the city workers are cops? Does that skew the distribution?

Will do. Two jelly donuts and I'll call you in the morning.

My son and daughter are constantly trash talking each other about their "fatness" (Both are probably single digit body fat %). I'm letting them know they are risking our "skinny" standing if they don't shape up.

I have to get on a plane Sunday morning at 0630. At one point this seemed like a good idea.

Today's randomness involved a ride up to Estes Park in the warm sunshine and a shared Reuben sandwich.

That is all.

My randomness for the day included a 1999 Subaru Legacy Outback and a timing belt/water pump.

No pics, that is all.

I would have rather been with Osprey!

This




Plus This




Equals this.



And yes it was yummy.

Got to hang with the Pirates for a while.

I met up with Mark (good to meet you) today to get a tail bag to him and we got lost in the mountains for a while. LOTS of sand in Golden gate.

Went riding yesterday.... The Birthday Girl and the Birthday Bike:


Found a little stream:


Then.....found a mud hole!

Lesson learned: "when it doubt - GAS IT!"

I am amazed by this old Turd Shooter. I had to pull off the air filter then this machine fired right back up. Awesome! I made the BG (Birthday Girl) change her own oil today. It came out like a milkshake and the brakes don't work so good right now....

No Bronsoning this time around (good memory!). Enjoyed a nice lunch in the sunshine at an outdoor table at Poppy's. Good service, reasonable prices, tasty food.

Love the way that old Suzuki looks. Did you recover the saddle?

Great riding form-just like her dad. Head up, arms loose, using leg's, etc..
Now a bit about reading terrain, how to spot deep water...

You ROCK JozGirl!
