Pedal to the metal.

With the mercury flirting with the 60 degree mark today, Roomie and I saddled up the bicycles and took a leisurely ride to the grocery store; about a five mile round trip. My poor bike had spent the last two-plus months gathering cobwebs, so it was pleasant to get out on the road again.

I had forgotten how much I liked my shoot-me vest as a cycling garment; liberally festooned with pockets, I could keep a stupid amount of gear and knickknacks ready to hand without having to toss anything in the basket or carry a messenger bag. It's like a purse you wear!

Bobbi occasionally held the bars with one hand while waving her digicam about with the other, so pictures of one sort or another may get posted. (EDIT: Here are some now.)

I likewise was out and about yesterday; apparently both my quads and my bony butt bits have gotten a little soft over the winter.

Hey, your shop sells choppers? What is a HK33 going for? You need a villar perosa for your cycling adventures. http://cgi.ebay.com.my/Bicycle-Mounted-Machine-Gun-Italian-Army-c1902-Card_W0QQitemZ350273122774QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_DefaultDomain_0?hash=item518de7b1d6

Purse? You could at least say "tactical" with that... I feel all weird now.

For the record: it's my coyote murdering garment.

One gentleman approached me in the library and asked if I was a fly fisherman after seeing my Eotac vest. I told him I was a photographer. But I agree about the purse-like qualities. I refer to it as my man-purse when talking with my wife.

wv: croves; stinky cigarettes in Japan.

You two need to get together with Xavier. Guns, bikes, and cameras.

Shouldn't that be "Mettle to the Pedal"?

Nice smile, btw...but so not "innocent".
