    That's great Splat, I embarrass my children in front of their friends every chance I get.

    Looking forward to the weekend:
    Probably picking up another german shepherd saturday; a 8mo rescue male.
    Wrapping up work on our boat before we drop it in next week.
    A couple little league games, 2-3 mtb rides, memorial day parade and possibly 3-4 dozen beers will round out the weekend.

    Morning.

    It definitely is finally effing Friday!!! Keeping my fingers crossed for an easy day at work. Then off to the Zoobrew this evening for some live music, beer, animals,... and people watching. Events like these always seem to bring out the more interesting folks of the community.

    Also can't freakin wait for my first DH outting of the year tomorrow!

    Finished my Goodwill BMX project last night.

    ^^^This. I'm headed to Angel Fire tonight for three days of tossing myself down a lava-rock filled mountain. Well, technically 2 days of DH Saturday and Monday with an epic high-country 30-mile trail ride on Sunday. Also of stoke note, I got mah girlfriend new bars (flat ones, she's really short) as well as new tires (narrower and lighter, she's really short) for her DH bike and I'm hoping she digs the changes. She likes that DH bike a bunch, but it could fit her a bit better. Them there double-crown triple-clamp forks tend to make the front end real tall on 'em DH bikes, and like I sayed: she's short.

    Why yes, yes I do...



    :D

    You win, hands down. Who's got two thumbs and is insanely jealous?






    PS - can you monkey's give Nick a bunch of crap about NOT coming on this trip with us? All he does is whine about how he never gets to ride, and he's bailin' out on potentially the only DH trip he'll be able to make this summer. Fuggin' guy.

    Putting down the beans, squash, corn, mellon, and hoping to get some berries planted too. I just want to make sure if I put any berries down, that they can hold the winter (black berries, etc)

    I know raspberries have *no* problem with winters around here. I'd suspect blackberries wouldn't either - they grew quite happily in MI and that place has much $hittier winters than here.
