Sorry about not being here yesterday. I usually let y'all know if I’m taking a day off, but I didn’t really have a chance. I had to leave for work a little earlier, and when I got there I was kinda busy.
You know, working.
What a mess. I do like my job though (most of the time.) Anyway, other than work, I finally got out for another ride on Tuesday and it was fun as usual. Social pace, minimal mileage, and a few beers made for a good night. Ah yes, beer. I had plenty of choices too.
I like beer. You know this.
It’s still not all about me though. Since I’m the “bike guy” in my neighborhood, a guy up the street asked if I could put together some bikes he bought for his kids for Christmas. He offered to pay me in beer so of course I said yes.
So they’re not really bikes per se, since they came from a local big box store, but they have wheels, pedals, and all that stuff so it’s close enough. I’m just happy that I’ll see a few more kids riding in the neighborhood. Even though those bikes are more like toys it’s a start.
We all have to start somewhere.
This time of year is about doing stuff for others so I hear, and I was happy to do my neighbor a solid. I have some more thoughts on the “holidays”, but I’ll save that for another time. I have to get to work so I can go for a ride later.
So yeah, now it’s all about me again.
