    No day off for me, but I do get Holiday pay. No fireworks today either. Apparently the Governor is worried that the 3 acres in the state that aren't on fire yet might get burned. Don't lose any fingers today!

    Happy Legal Explosives Day! Go America! (LOL @ the British)

    Wife and I may ride, but we also may not ride. The weather ain't cooperating right now.

    40th birthday yesterday was nice and uneventful, except for my Facebook page which blew up. Slept nine wonderful hours last night.

    Enjoy your Wednesday, gang!

    Morning.

    Happy blow sh!t up to celebrate our forefathers rebeling against the crown day! No big plans since our little guy is only a little over 2weeks old. Will probably go over to a fellow monkey's house for a little while today for some beers and go-cart crazyness. Yup, thats about it.

    2.5 inch hail, just as I was on my roadbike going home. A cluster**** at work since the competition changed some release dates which give them nothing but really hurt us. Now trying to create time where there is none.

    Still a good day, gonna have some good chemex later that day and finally have some sleep ( I know that is a contradiction)

    I'm sitting here in Wisconsin at my aunts house. Me and my dad took a road trip together to see the family, this place is far to flat to pull my bike out out of the basement. (good thing we have to drive through the Rockies twice) I think today we're going over to my uncles farm to play with fireworks and hang out

    Going to see my mom, then off to a surprise anniversary party for some friends. Pretty mellow day. Happy to celebrate having a country that lets me decide if I want to put a hook in myself for fun.

    Fireworks bore me, and every year I get dragged along to see them. So I'm quite pleased by the cancellations this year.

    Heading to the Denver Outlaws lacrosse game tonight and then watching their fireworks. Last year they had the best show that I have ever seen.

    Don't die, (or lose any fingers today)!

    Picked up my in-laws today (the other set) to stay with us for a week or so. Father-in-law is helping me get my drip setup done. Trying to swap my downpipe today too.
