Man Law!

Folks, a word of warning here.  I am going to do something I don’t normally do, I am going to stereotype a group of people.  Now the group of people in question are men, so, since I am part of this group, I feel ok doing so.

Remember, as always, the opinions of this page are mine and mine alone, and I never try to annoy or offend (OK maybe sometimes I do to a particula rperson or two, but NOT this time.) So read on if you’d like! Continue reading

The key difference

Sometimes you just don’t know where your mind travels on any given day, or how one conversation will cause a thought to pop into your head. Today on FB I posted this picture from last night’s Seahawk game.

2) Believe someone was dumb enough to pay it.

In the discussion I pointed out this is a good example (though extreme) of why I prefer to walk or ride to get places in town.  My friend let me know she does NOT like riding in traffic at all, which is when I had my realization.. Continue reading

Today though, was different…. Continue reading

Racking up the Miles: August 2014

A busy few days!

Wow!  One of the reasons I blog almost every day is to make sure I don’t forget anything.  Well that, and I enjoy it a lot.  Truth be told though, most of the time, skipping 3 days wouldn’t be a big deal.  However, this was a busy Labor Day weekend for us! There has been a lot going on from Thursday night up to and until me sitting in my chair, sipping wine on Sunday.  It’s a good thing tomorrow is a holiday, I need a rest.

Let me see if I can fill you in Continue reading

Damn I needed that!

Folks, I do my best to give my wife credit for everything she does,  Michelle is amazing.  She knows I have been down on myself for not riding much, and not going on rides on the weekends.  So when I mentioned I was kinda thinking of taking the scenic route home from work, she said “GO! Have fun!”

So I did! Continue reading
