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

Tonight? I ride.

I hope everybody out there in America had a nice, quiet, and very safe Fourth of July.  The family up on the hill behind my house had a backyard bar-b-cue; I could smell the burgers on the grill when I left the dogs out.
The store did its usual holiday business - customers till around noon, but they they thinned out.  I'm always surprised by how many people feel the need to shop for a sale on a holiday.  I mean, it's not like this is the only day they don't have to work.  And though we do offer special sales, but if you look at the product and the cost, you'll soon realize it's a deal only in advertising, nothing more.
Last evening I put the door on the tank stand, vacuumed up half a million little pieces of Styrofoam, and unpacked the light.  Inexpensive plastic, a lot like the Fourth of July deals we offer in the store.  So I jumped on Amazon and ordered a nice LED light that's good for both plants and fish.
The Idiot Jerk in the White House turned the celebration in Washington into another hate rally.  This is why he's going to lose... badly.  His swallows this moments like sugar coated gobbledygook.  Someone needs to tell him that fascism is a far right ideology, not one that belongs to the far left.  Someone also needs to tell him Robert E Lee is not one of our 'Founding Fathers,' unless he was very, very old at the time he lost the Civil War.  Let's be honest here, Robert E Lee was one of the biggest losers of all time.  So was Jefferson Davis.  The confederacy didn't almost win the Civil War, they lost badly.  The North crushed them.  Sherman's March to the Sea shattered them.  He set fire to Atlanta, burned the jewel of the south.

  Someone needs to tell the Idiot Jerk this.  He supposedly hates losers, and yet here he is backing the biggest bunch of losers America has ever given birth to.
Finally, for 2 days I've worked on the new tank stand without climbing on the the saddle of my bicycle.  Tonight?  I ride.



  1. dump also made "white power" signs last night during his rant.

    did you see kanye west wants to run for preznit? bwhahahahahahahahahaha!

    I don't think sherman did a thorough job. look at all the idiot rednecks out there.

  2. Yeah, I saw that about kanye... dumb shit

  3. It's just so weird to me that a store would be open on a national holiday. Heck grocery stores only started opening up for four hours on a Sunday here in France a few years back. On Bastille Day only bakers will be open first thing in the morning and then it's all closed up. That being said, I don't quite know how we ended up at my in-laws in PA one year at Thanksgiving but we went shopping the next day and absolutely made out like thieves. Everything was so cheap I handed my kids huge baskets and said buy what you want, just make sure it fits!

    1. In America almost everything is open because corporate America is all about the money.

  4. We went to a local park and ended up riding 25 miles on the 4th! It is much more fun riding with others.

    1. Yeah, it's real easy to rack up mileage if you're having a good time.
