Moose

That one was a little scary, too. IN my first shot there are only two adults. I turned to put the camera away and the third adult was looking in my passenger side window.

Moose

As usual, my wife and I entered a float in our town's Canada Day parade. And as usual I was dressed in our moose costume. Normally it is a bout 20-24C out but this year the temperature reached 32. I tucked ice packs in my cargo shorts and into the head of the mascot. Still by the time the parade was over I was done.

That's me at the helm of OMG Racing's Mercedes S500 themed in German-air-force-meets-IHOP Luftwaffle colors. The event is the Button Turrible race in the 24 Hours of LeMons endurance racing series. Cooling problems in the 110 F heat kept us out of contention, but we did endure.

One of the very few pictures of me I like. Only now my hair is more of a strawberry blonde.


I can not get pictures in here....sorry.

Here is a picture of me on patrol taken by one of my colleagues last autumn.



Not a great shot, but we are usually not allowed cameras when working, so there are very few photos of us on patrol.

I'm not an expert, but I think your spoiler is a bit out of alignment!

That's one way to exfoliate.

This is me having a picnic with my wife (she's holding the camera) at the top of Mount St. Helens in Washington State.

Well, I said goodbye to my bike of 7 years today. A long relationship for a bike (at least the bikes I've owned). I must admit that for the last 18 months I'd been cheating on her with a newer, lighter bike: it's really been a sham ownership since then. Ever since, I'd just been going through the motions of occasionally inflating her tires, contemplating a truening stand to straighten the wheels out or maybe even some new wheels altogether on account of the rusting spokes... When I got orders to report to Newport, I still wasn't ready to end the lie so I even dragged her along from Annapolis to Rhode Island (though I made it travel via mover's truck as I wanted to enjoy the scenery with my newer, sexier bike, which I mounted on my car for the drive North, so we could go out right away).

Anyways... It's over. I have orders to move cross country and ultimately overseas and I've finally come to terms with things. I took her kickstand on my newish bike (which came without one, but I couldn't bear to strip her of her dignity while I was still carrying on the sham) and have also decided to hold onto her seat in memory of the love we shared. It was very sad to see her in the dumpster, surrounded by trash... I put a sleeping bag I was throwing out with her on top to cover her. I never even took her for one last ride, to taste the wind one more time...

But I don't want to remember her there, in the trash heap with a shroud over her. I'm going to try to remember her as she once was, my first road bike, amongst the rice paddies of Japan:



*sniff*

And now if you'll click on over to the earworm adoption thread, I'll let your earworms play me out...

I got my hair chopped!



It used to be below my collarbone and, although you can't tell from this photo, it's incredibly thick. I was bricking it a bit when the hairdresser started to cut, because I was having flashbacks to my childhood when I got my long hair cut to a bob and it stuck out like a boxy hedge. The hairdresser got a 5 tip for this (which in British terms at least is a very big thank you)
