I went over to CB's yesterday for Easter. I went after the NCAA games and the kids were fresh from their Grandparents house and they were a wee bit wound up. Okay, they were bouncing off of the walls. Nate wanted to do an egg hunt, so they all went out of the room and closed the door while I hid them. I wanted a better picture of them than the one I had. So after three tries this was the best I could get. With an assist from CB.


Have you seen my glove?

Here it is Mickey!

Spring Ride

Spring Ride. Today it is nice out. 57' sunny and the trees are a bloomin'. This is a house I ride by every morning at 6:15 so I haven't seen it during the daylight for months. I took a nice slow ride today. Just enjoying the scenery.

Light Mount

Behind all of the cables and wires is a mutated TerraCycle light mount that use the Long Wheel base front accessory mount tube and the 75mm and 100mm Arms with the CatEye clamps and the TerraCycle 90' adapter mount. The lights are powered by a 6-volt battery pack mounted like a water bottle. Also in the picture can be seen is the horn, bell, and computer.

The Best Bike Rack

A keg of New Belgium Beer. There is nothing like locking your bike up to a beer keg that is behind your favorite watering hole. They are light but awkward if you try to move or remove the bike from where it is. The bike above is the "Tank Bike" all 58 pounds of it. I was finally able to order a Xtracyle on Thursday. Brown should be delivering it by Wednesday the 26th to the shop. I should be on the road with it by Friday if not before. I can't wait.

It is not a Dogwood but it is spring!

So today it has been five years since the start of Bush's misbegotten war in Iraq. FUCK. 4990 Americans have died since then in a desert that we have no business to be in. I am sad but also hopeful. Obama gave one of the best most inspiring speaches I have ever heard. Read it, watch it and then act on what he has to say. linky: Part one. Peace.

So last night Drinky Santa and I were talking local politics when two members of the Oregon Bus crew stopped in at Claudia's to get people to register to vote. The last day is April 29th to vote in the May primary. It was nice to see younger people involved in the get out the vote initiative.
This Glenn Avenue, see below, is in SE. I didn't know there is one in NE. Thanks for the tip.
