Greyhound gets docked a day's pay for napping on the job.

Happy FRIDAY, monkeys! Anyone got anything interesting going on this weekend? Wifey and I looking at rides both days. :happydance:

We're watching a friend's dog for the next week so there are now two greyhounds running around our house. Well, they're more like lying on their beds completely motionless the entire day, but you get the idea.

I went for a run last night, and for some reason I slept unusually well last night. I dunno.

Jeez, when I dog sit, the dogs constantly rag each other. I'd give a fortune for a bit of peace and quiet...

Off to a race in 2 hours time. Got packing to do. Forecast is for sunshine, so I'm happy. First race this year without mud tyres.

Later all, see you after the weekend. Have a good'un.

Pathetic laziness is the greyhound's nature. :D We watch a couple of labs on occasion and we get much less rest those days.

Good luck at the race!

not much planned for the weekend ,

Hey IAB -- Soapstone ???
Tomorrow is going to be a quick, early ride at the WH reservoir. We have plans in the afternoon. Sunday we're trying to find a place between us and Keith so we can meet up to ride. Kevin's got a post in the NE forum about a ride Sunday in Holyoke, which would be perfect.

Good Morning!

Sorry I didn't make it here any earlier. I had to make a drive over to a neighboring town first thing this morning to deliver some truss hangars to a job. They got here by UPS at the last second yesterday before we closed, so I got "volunteered" for the assignment this morning.

Yesterday evening was spent in the kiddie pool playing around with Colin and having a few cold tops. I whooped up a pesto spaghetti with grilled shrimp and veggies that was out of this world good. We watched a little bit of "Last Comic Standing" but I was already halfway asleep and pretty much sacked out on the couch for most of the night.

Boss just came in and informed us at the last minute that we're working all day today. That blows. I hate when they just stroll in a ruin your whole day like that. We do four 9-hour days and work until 11am on Fridays so we can have the rest of the day to enjoy.......but not today. Boo-Hoo.

The weekend looks great. I'm playing in a charity golf event tomorrow to raise money to help one of our friends whose son has cancer. Hopefully I won't embarass myself too much with the metal sticks.

Y'all have a great weekend!!

Good morning. Sorry if I decided to actually work this morning instead of checking formums/email. :P

Yes, Holyoke ride on Sunday at 1pm meet at the Batchelor Street lot. A guy from NEMBA is leading otherwise I agree its a bit late. Especially since there might be thunderstorms in the afternoon. Sounds like a great place though. I've heard it compared to KT but with more rocks. I'd also say the same about FOMBA. I'm heading up there tomorrow at 10am (flexible) if anyone is interested.

Morning all,

It's been a really good week here. I have managed to get a ton of stuff done, got some good rides in. Today I'm going to play some golf this morning then when done with that, going to get in a trail ride.

behind you, don't wait up.
People are going to view your profile now and puke on their keyboards.
Worked for me. :twitch:
I didn't know we could do that with our profiles now. The wonders of ridemonkey never stop.

Good morning.
Work continues to suck balls. I took a road ride over my lunch break yesterday, then went trail riding in the evening. Trails were in great shape, but this is the first 5 day stretch of dry weather we've had all year so it was a long time coming. My legs are spent.

Not much on tap for the weekend, hopefully trail riding tomorrow, street festival at night, blahbitty blah blah on Sunday.

Off for more coffee ... Cheers.

We're going camping this weekend with some city slickers. :)

Car camping of course, I'm pretty psyched because we're taking Brinley camping for her first time and we're getting to use our pop-up for the first time. We've owned it for 2 years but haven't had a chance to use it.

My wife sprained her hip yesterday at work so she's semi-incapacitated. Should be an interesting trip.

Morning. Went for my first mtb ride in almost 4 weeks last night - a little two hour diddy around Bend's famous Phil's trail network. Good times. This weekend is more riding and I'm volunteering at a local mtb race Sunday.

Have a good one everyone.

Happy first day of summer!! WOO HOO:biggrin:The weather is actually going to be 'normal' today so I'm trying to skate out of work early for some sun therapy.

Had an awesome sunrise run this morning, hopefully it's a sign of what's in store for next weekend’s race.

Have a great day everyone!!

Morning all.....

Ithaca Festival this weekend. Lots of stuff for the kiddo to do and good bands for me to listen to. :rockout:

The only riding I have planned is for Sunday: a 50-60 mile road ride.... Unless I get the kiddo over to my mother's early enough Saturday afternoon. Then maybe I can squeeze in a trail ride then. We'll see.

Hope you all have a fantastic weekend!!

Not too much planned for this weekend. Tommorow I'll probably do some house cleaning. Sunday I will be doing the Iron Girl 5k and then going over to the San Diego Fair after. We switched to a 4/10 work week, so I also have Monday's off, but I have not decided what I will do on Monday yet.

Have a good day everyone!
