March Schedule Posted

First up this month is Moon Valley Cafe, one of my favorites. And wonder of wonders, the weather looks like it might cooperate! Of course, with all the sunshine coming back, the weeds in my yard will be popping up like crazy I am sure.

See ya Sunday!

Sunday at LoLo's

Alexis took this shot of the gang on Sunday at LoLo's. Was nice to have a decent weekend, but rain is moving in this afternoon. Sigh.

I'll have the March schedule posted as soon as I get it.

Rainy Days and Mondays

Tomorrow's ride to Sylvia's La Canasta is likely going to be too wet and rainy, at least for me anyway. I'll wait until morning to decide for sure.

However, it's looking promising for that Monday holiday ride. Meet at Granada at 8 AM Monday, Jamie has a plan. I won't be there, but at least I should be able to bike to work.

By the way, up there on the left is a link to my donation page for the Bike MS Arizona event coming up March 25-26. Again this year, I will match donations up to a total of $250.

I'll leave you with a little musical interlude for this wet weekend...

Don't Call Me, Owl Call You...

Just outside a co-workers office, a pair of owls has set up housekeeping in a planter. Someone snapped a couple photos of Dad and Mom. Click the photos to embiggen.

Another Holiday Ride I Can't Do

Jamie says there's going to be a ride Monday 2/20 (Presidents Day). Same place, Granada Park at 8:00 AM. I can't make it but if you can, I believe they'll be off to Tempe.

Just wanted to share something that our President said this morning:

"Frederick Douglass is an example of somebody who has done an amazing job and is being recognized more and more, I notice,"

Reflect on that. Go back and re-read. Let it roll around in your head for awhile. This is the leader of the Free World. Only it sounds like the beginning of a bad essay by a really lazy high school student.

Sigh. Oh well, the new schedule for February is up over there on the left. This Sunday it's Times Square at 7th St. and Union Hills. See ya Sunday!

Who'll Stop The Rain??!

The weather's looking iffy for Sunday's ride to Miracle Mile, so if it's raining don't look for me to show up. Check that Intellicast link over to the side in the morning, that's where I'll be looking to see if there's any chance of staying warm and dry.

Found this video on the intertubes, the Finns are up to shenanigans with a 1990 Ford Fiesta. This is quite entertaining, at least to my weird sense of humor. What happens when you use Coca-Cola for motor oil? Watch and find out.

And when you're done with that one, ever see a brake disc rotor explode?

Holiday Ride - MLK Day

Jamie tells me that the plan is another holiday ride this Monday 1/16. Granada Park, 8 AM meetup. Destination is likely Tempe again. And yet again, I am unable to join in the fun. Don't let that stop you guys!

And while I'm at it, Sunday is not looking good for the ride to Miracle Mile, Saturday afternoon into Sunday morning has rain in the forecast. Maybe it will all blow to the north of us. So watch the weather, and see you Sunday

Not Yet

I don't know about you, but I've been spending most of my free time in the land of Not Yet. If you're unfamiliar with it, Not Yet is a happy place where all the bad things that seem likely to occur have not happened... yet. I like to think of it as a shimmering, shivering soap bubble whose fragile beauty is only made greater by the knowledge that it will soon burst, making way for the dark realm of You Gotta Be Kidding Me.

But not now. Not Yet.

And yes, I would love to say Not Ever, but that place doesn't exist.

Monday Holiday Ride - Take Two

I understand from Debby there will be an unofficial and unsanctioned ride on Monday Jan 2 (the legal holiday), starting at 8 AM from Granada Park.

Destination is Tempe, most likely NCounter on Mill.

Yet again, I'll be at work and unable to participate. I am still hopeful for Sunday, but right now the weather is looking iffy. Then again, the forecast seems to be changing every time I look, so who knows?
