It rained here well this morning. I think we're about done. The streets are drying off.

lol. You looked quite surprised when you glanced back at me during the "event". I really don't know why you were that surprised. Hey. At least that water broke your fall.

I really don't see that many poor choices but if you say so...would be very applicable for me also

The snot crossings are in full bloom. On 4180 the safer route was down the middle. The tire tracks were black and slick and the edges of the tracks were yellow and super slick.

Don't be lazy. Park it and walk it when in doubt. If you can't walk it, you can't ride it. Now, watch me be the next swimmer.
