It's Tuesday

I drove today, full of hope that it was going to rain. But it did not start raining till AFTER I got home!

But, I DID ride the bike yesterday.

I found out that Steve the L. is going to another work site, did I mention this? What am I going to do for new socks? And stuffed animals for the basket? The bike and I are going to miss him!

I made this demotivational poster today:

Feel free to use it.

I was riding along yesterday morning, feeling my usual shoulder oddness. I was thinking maybe I should should try one of those recombinant bikes. Then I thinks, a "recombinant" bike? What the heck would that be! It's a recumbent bike!

I received a plain brown envelope in the mail today. Instead of immediately tossing it, as was my inclination, I opened it to find a subscription offer from Backpacker magazine. Why the plain brown envelope. Do they think that I will open it out of curiosity? Oh, it's from Backpacker, I think I will subscribe! No, for some reason I am offended. I'm still not sure it isn't a flim-flam from some bogus subscription agency. The return address on the envelope turns out to be the legitimate address of Active Interest Media (Efrem Zimbalist III, President and CEO, son of Efrem Zimbalist Jr. (star of the 77 Sunset Strip television show, kids!), the folks who publish a number of magazines. But the address to send the order is in Florida. Who knows?

It's still raining. Will the roads be wet tomorrow?

A Recombinant bike would be where you cut two bikes in the middle, swap halves, and weld them back together.

I remember Efrem Zimbalist Jr. from F.B.I. He also did a lot of the voice work for the Batman and Superman animation series in the 90's.
