Following Waataaja's (gee, that doesn't look right) advice I am now commuting faster so I'll improve my times at Black Dog. I did a 75 foot interval and feel faster already.
Made a daring rescue of a Golden Retriever in rush hour traffic last night at Nokomis Parkway and Cedar. Some woman aided in the rescue but couldn't hang on to the other dog which was some kind of white fu fu something-or-other. Hopefully the little shit made it ok.
God on judgement day: Are you the guy who can't say 10 words with at least one fck mixed in?
God: Are you also the guy who made sure all those stray dogs were returned to their owners?
Me: Yes, on both counts
God: Ok, you're in...you're in charge of the lawn

Looked like all were asleep at MFD Station 7 this morning. Should've hung around until breakfast.
Smithers doing cross is just wonderful. He's already getting pointers from the College of Coaches.
I spent 3 hours edging my lawn last night and feel really good about myself today.
The Clown Bike (Rollo fixie) will soon have a 7-speed internal set-up on it. Mrs didn't like the internal on her Long Haul Trucker so we changed it to a 9 speed which left a hub and wheel available. Enter the Clown Bike. Now, I'll have an extra wheel. Like Mark from the HC said, 'I buy bike frames to get rid of extra parts'.

I'll be assuming command of Minneapolis Bike Commuters Inc. It's ok, I'm ready. We've got a lot of new commuters out there which is awesome so let's start thing off with a mixer at Bike Center on the Greenway. I choose Snakecrotch as my first lieutenant because he lives in South Dakota and appoint Rosenberg as Chief Cook and Bottle Washer.

It's colder outside than it looks but I still rode 20 miles through the U, downtown with a stop at CRC where the lovely Carl was caffeinating the masses.
Still need to stop at Hiawatha to get my tires I bought at World Cycling put on my Salsa. After all these earth shattering events I'll stop at the hospital to meet Mrs and ride to Freewheel's Bike Center on the Greenway for coffee. This economy ain't rebounding by me mowing my f-ing lawn.
Ok, so Snowy's giving me the hi sign which means it's time for more food.

Two weeks has gone by already? Do you want to hear about my head cold? I'll be there. The self-torture of bicycle racing escapes me. I haven't chosen an outfit yet.

60 trees left to plant. I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.
Shut up, pay the 80 bucks required to fill your gas tank and go on about your business. You're way to soft to ride a bike to work every day. Now, get out of my sight and don't come back.
All kidding aside...I hope we still don't need the heat on in June.

Can we move the spot over 15 inches? What color does it turn in the fall for those 10 days of fall color? My teenage children don't give a shit about anything I have to say so I'm taking it out on you. I am woman hear me roar...

Over the shoulder of mom skating with kid...nothing but net.
Looks like he's got a lotta shit in that bag.
Looks like a floral pattern of some kind, huh? It's a shot of Mrs through a small hole in my apple fritter at Scandia Bake Shop. Talk about your artsy smartsy shit.

We plant trees faster than any nursery and we have a higher survival rate. I just moved a spot 35 inches for some woman that I'd rather of duct taped to a tree. When did women start wearing the pants in the family? It's rhetorical. I don't care what you think.

Hurl, I rode the clown fixie backwards 15 feet in a straight line at a light this morning. I'd call that progress.
Will everyone soon have an suv and a scooter?
I figured out how to use the scanner on my printer yesterday so that's where the pictures came from. I think I was supposed to give that id back and probably my high school baseball uniform too.
I made my semi-annual trip to the grocery store with Mrs yesterday and goodness gracious are prices high. I didn't make a scene in the cereal isle in case you were wondering.

Back in those days long distance phone calls were expensive so you wrote letters, yes letters, and Ma was a legend. She was writing weekly to at least 5 people. Ma taught me that people love to be remembered...on their birthday, Christmas or any old time. It's the most important life lesson she ever gave me. That's why I have the postcard list. That's why you get an e-mail or text message out of the blue from me. I don't need anything important for a reason to e-mail you. It's the most important thing I ever learned from my mother. Happy Mother's Day Ma...I'll always be there for you.
