I've also been told I have little tact, so if this offends you simply ride on.

On day 2 of my StayCation

I got up at my usual time, 0500.  I'm having my car serviced, either at 0715 or 0730 - I didn't write down the specific time when I made the reservation.  Silly me.  Shit, I hope that's not what they call a senior moment.  I should have paid better attention.  After I made the appointment I got a notice, "add to calendar," which I clicked on - well,  the date was scheduled but not the specific time.  Shit.
Yesterday I completed my 100 mile challenge... barely.  I had just completed a little over 5 miles when I received an error message.  The route I was downloading failed and that shut down my system.  Everything stopped.  The video, which had been locking up briefly stopped and I was taken to the 'ride completion screen.'  I'd had ridden 3/4 of a mile past the necessary 100 miles.  Golly!  I wanted to put in at least 11 or 12 miles.  I will add those miles this afternoon.  And, what do I get for riding over 100 miles?  A Trek T-shirt.  It's should be read for pick-up at Holme's Cycling in Camp Hill in mid-September.  This is funny since I'm a Cannondale man and ride Cannondale bikes no Trek bikes.  Will I wear it?  Don't know.
My neighbor got a bull mastiff puppy.  He was out in the front yard yesterday doing the house training bit.  He and his wife already have one... but it must be around 6 or 7 years old.  I gave him a 'thumbs up' as I drove by.

Big dogs are great!
Update... my appointment was for 7:30 so I got here 20 minutes too early.  Shit


  1. LoL same happened to me with outlook. I had a WebEx with some publishing house representatives and I just clicked on their link in the email. It turned out it was Eastern time. I’m Central. Fuckup ensues.
    And it’s cool you won a T-shirt! I’m gonna need pics, though. Of you wearing it.

  2. On the bright side, I think you're only hour late for half the year.

    Yeah, a Trek T-shirt... now, that's irony (that cheater Armstrong used to ride Treks).

  3. I did the same thing with an appointment for bloodwork. I guessed the time, and luckily I got it right. And yes, big dogs are great! (Murphy is on the bed with me taking a nap...all 90 lbs of him)

    1. My neighbor used to have a white picket fence... which is nothing for a bull mastiff.
