Nothing like losing one of your best friends to cancer at the beginning of the week and putting your dog of 14 years down and the end of that very same week.
sorry to hear of your losses, Jeff,,,,,losing important parts of life is not easy

+1 on what Kaw said...

Thoughts and prayers heading your way. Unfortunately I know more about how you are feeling than I'd like to , I'm pulling together all the good JuJu that I can find and sending it out.

a 100+ pound golden retriever running around.


Sure glad we took him to the lake about a month ago he had a ball.

Thumb Good Job!

If he could have a ball at the lake just a month ago....you did very well by him. Praise is in order for you getting the 'timing' right so that he could enjoy all the good and not have to stay too long for the bad. It's a haunting decision but one that we are privilidged to make for 'some' of our best friends. Time will help you but I have to say, writing this, 8 months after losing Natasha, it's hard to see the keyboard. We are all diminished by the loss (of both) of your friends.

Thanks for the kind words everyone.


Took the Mrs. for a bike ride today just to get her out of the house.
Turned out to be a prefect day for a ride.

Went up to the Palermo area, nice dirt roads to ride, went up to the wind mills in the Freedom area as well.

Not surprising

After that we ate exclusively at Micky D's for the rest of the trip home, never had great food but never had anything we couldn't eat either. One thing the big chains try very hard to do is be consistent, if you liked it in Boston you will not be surprised by it in LA.
In the course of work, I ended up in the kitchen of almost every restaurant in Concord, NH. Only two ever impressed me as being noticeably clean, they were Micky D's and KFC. I have even had employees meet me in the parking lot (not one of the afore mentioned places) to say 'everything is all set, you can go home' while a fire was burning inside the wall behind the fryolaters, they knew that once the FD went in the Health Inspector would be following. Among the worst (now gone) was a restaurant/hotel built in the flood plain (by the brother of the Highway Commissioner I have been told). In the spring they would cover the kitchen floor with pallets because the river would rise and back feed through the floor drains, usually only a couple of inches though.


Still Hungry?

Non-bike related, but I was talking to someone at the campfilre at this year's WHACO about Cub Cadet tractors, and he mentioned a place that makes replacement wiring harnesses. My old Cub runs like a top, but I find I'm spending a couple of hours chasing corroded connectors, wires with brittle insulation that flakes off if you touch it, bad grounds, etc every time I use it. Unfortunately, I forget who it was I was talking to, and the name of the place that makes them. So, if you're out there Cub Cadet guy, please remind me! Thanks!

He needed inspiration for studying. That would do it for me. Great videos.
