There are times where I am floating along with everything, understanding and comprehending. Then there are times when I am but a rock in the stream and the water cascades over and around me and I have no idea what is happening… Life is like that sometimes.

Got this one via email from my wife earlier today.

See, I’ve been stocking up. Like I learned long ago in the Boy Scouts: Be Prepared!

I went out for a road ride yesterday morning up around Cave Creek. Took me two and a half hours. Went out, again, today on the road bike. Went around Mummy Mountain. Took me two and a half hours.

First back to back days of riding in a long, long time. Maybe since last summer. Certainly since January.

I’ve got to rectify that in the future. Can’t let the commonplace remain common. It just ain’t good cricket.

About big jonny

The man, the legend. The guy who started it all back in the Year of Our Lord Beer, 2000, with a couple of pages worth of idiotic ranting hardcoded on some random porn site that would host anything you uploaded, a book called HTML for Dummies (which was completely appropriate), a bad attitude (which hasn’t much changed), and a Dell desktop running Win95 with 64 mgs of ram and a six gig hard drive. Those were the days. Then he went to law school. Go figure. Flagstaff, Arizona, USA

  5. +1 for Coppala wine. I have a high school friend that’s one of the head winemakers there…got a behind-the-scenes tour and got to stay in Francis Ford’s guest house for free when we hit Napa a couple years ago. Wine makes me smile like an idiot. Wine makes the wife horny. Wine makes me smile, again, like an idiot. I got to go buy me some wine.

  6. How come they call pms, pms?
    ‘Cause mad cow disease was already being used.

  7. I think you’ll find several of them on this site… Including the dude who started the whole thing… Probably not Dave though. Just guessing..
