We all know Pittsburgh is number 1, why did they feel the need to point it out?

Coincidence? I think not.

What does that have to do with God having narrow-minded cycling preferences?

Dogs. SMH.

They are possessed with joy by being simultaneously dogs and outside.

Loosen up a little. Didn't you ever have fun in the dirt as a kid? I always liked being out there and had years of fun on dirt bikes. Here is a (reversed) pic from about 1982 or so.

In related news...

When the Rams left Los Angeles in 1994, a restaurant across the street from Anaheim Stadium posted on its billboard "Today's Special: Lack of Ram".

Yeah, claws are claws. Chill or not. I love cats but that ones big enough to feed a family of four.

I was serially disappointed in that cereal as a yute. I don't know why I kept trying it.

one of my favorites, especially the 3 brick packages. I loved to crush them. So awesome. Little cinnamon and sugar. Delicious!
Now they make it ready to eat like that, but crushing the little squares is just not the same.

God intended the two go together.

Not really. And even if I did, I outgrew it. You don't see me having eraser fights with my friends anymore.

New Bike day!!!!

Was thrown in the trash. Brakes work well, shifting needs some work. Shocks feel like they have some life left. Needs a seat post clamp but otherwise itís in pretty good shape.

Wish it was a little bigger, but it will fit the wife well.

sah,weet!

I’ve done Movember for many years just because I felt I should but I decided not to this year because after 2 years of Eligard injections, I can barely grow anything and I couldn’t grow much before, anyway. A couple friends of mine are cultivating facial hair on my behalf. 👍

The Lord frowns upon things that are dirty.

I have to do some observation flights for training. Wed it looks like going to Austin and back. Should be back in my hotel by lunch.

side note bike didnít make the noise today. :). Weather was perfect in Dallas, 75 light wind. But my knee didnít enjoy it.

Riding a dirt bike or a mountain bike is a lot more fun than an eraser fight.

It's not my Strava post but I have done that climb several times. Earlier this year I went up there but drove part way. I'm the fat one in this old pic.
