What does it mean again

When you hear a freight train coming in a storm like this one???
Sent from my Verizon Wireless BlackBerry

Friends--HELP!

thanks...this peek was all i needed!


Loveall is out of town and apparently off-line! I have been in sole possession of his new bike as you see it boxed in the photo. I have put his salsa post clamp over what I consider the right location but am having a terrible time resisting the temptation to open the box! Why don't we just have done with it?? Let's have everyone over for a box opening party and then pretend we didn't!!! Any takers??

HOT

In TX for the week and somehow it is 90 at 9am! Fun rides with sandy rolling hills, cactus, a million cars and very impressive potholes. I'll try to post some pics.

That was such a strong storm...

There are fish on the trail! Either that or someone left their catch behind seeking emegency shelter!

Saw a couple interesting things while biking today...

1. A parade of about 40 tractors.
2. A 3-legged dog leading the parade.

And all that was before I even got out of Triboji!

Weekend plans - changing?


Hey friends. The few who responded thought Sunday worked better to ride and eat? How about we do pie at the Loveall mansion on SUNDAY night around 7:00? And if anyone thinks a pre-dessert ride on Sunday is in order we can go to spencer or just stay local. Does that work?
PS - the second picture in honor of Kari.

Loveall turns 41 on Saturday!

Loveall is turning 41 on Saturday, so I think this calls for cake, pie, ice cream, all of the above! Please join us this Saturday the 12th, around 7:30 p.m. for a small birthday bash! Bike during the day, and pie at night, what could be a better birthday for Clint? Let Jane know if you can make it!

SPENCER rides this weekend - Who's in?

Anyone want to ride Fri, Sat or Sunday in Spencer to benefit the Ragbrai dream team program. They have kids train on donated bikes and if the kids finish ragbrai they keep the bike. A Friend is pretty involved and let me know they are riding for flagfest weekend. I think we could be in on any day (If our pastor doesn't go long on Sunday). Rides anywhere from 25-100 so we could do anything we wanted. Not sure about pie but I know there will be food somewhere! Here are some links...

Buzz and Woody attempt the Copper Triangle


Clockwise? Counterclockwise? They don't know.
Together, Buzz and Woody will ride 79 miles of Rocky Mountain glory, with 5,900 feet of climb. Will Buzz fail?
Will Woody be able to remain upright while climbing at only 4 mph beside Buzz?
Will there be pie?
