Bike To Work Friday

Well, I made it through a whole week of biking to work.  Sixty miles total!

Here's the duck I saw the other day, on Jackson Drive. It was loaded on a car carrier, as you can see, but this afternoon it was sitting back on the ground.



Here's the back end of of it!



I gave some poppy seeds to the gardening class last year, yesterday I was notified they had finally sprouted.  I got there a little late for the full bloom, but I think the first pic is so dramatic!





I found this 10mm socket on the way to work this morning.  I'll let it go for fifty cents. No free delivery!



On the way to work I saw some guys goofing around with a camera and tripod. I thought I should take a pic, but I did not. Later I saw on the news it was the Fox fellows doing a piece on the La Mesa Centennial celebration, talking here to Mayor Art Madrid, who is apparently Mayor For Life, and why not, say I.



I stopped by the Grossmont College Bike To Work station and picked up a tee shirt.  Size medium, thank you very much. The lady manning the booth recognized me from last year.  I nearly fell over when my foot caught in the toe strap, THAT certainly would have been memorable! I also took a Clif Bar, flavor Chocolate Fudge Brownie, which I don't see on their web site, so perhaps I am confused. It was extremely unattractive, but oh so delicious, and best of all little pieces kept reappearing, like magic, so the fudgie goodness lasted quite a while.



A pic of me and the shirt, in the jersey Steve M. presented to me the other week, 'shopped with Sumo in front of Lake  Murray.

Well, gosh, I think that is quite enough for today!

2 sockets in one month. When I cleaned out the garage a few weeks ago, I found that we have 4 socket sets! Nice t-shirt!
