JUST PUTZING AROUND
The weather still has been a bit chilly here so I didn’t get a ride in until today.
Here is a pic of my new ‘home’ for the next little while.
Took awhile to get motivated today but eventually figured I’d tackle something ‘small’ like putting those stickers I bought on the little pup.
I really need to read this particular one:
Then I decided I would go for a run. Got the bike out of the trailer and off the ramp but that was as far I could get her moved. It’s not gravel here – it’s worse – it’s small stone. I couldn’t get any traction to get the bike back further. So I thought I’d be able to get in going forward but the turn was too sharp and my feet are slipping on the stone. So I’m STUCK !
Nothing I could do but wait until I saw someone out around. So I decided to organize the basement:
hmmm, OK maybe not today. Then I figured I’d put the letters I got on the little pup. Place them there first with scotch tape:
Measure very carefully to ensure each are evenly spaced:
Line them all up to see how that looks:
VOILA ! SUCCESS !
Start making my line for “Rider” …..
But then I see the Owner out and about and go ask him to give me a hand with the bike.
More about the bike and those ‘Foolish’ (insert more appropriate “F” word”) little slippery stones later. I have video – I just don’t know how to put that on here yet.
I did manage to get out for a short ride. I wanted to check out the local hardware store….no surprise there huh !! LOL
Now Ajo is a very small place – population 4,000 with one ‘main’ street going through it – AND I COULDN’T FIND THE FRIKKIN’ HARDWARE STORE.
Oh CRAP – Look what I just read while looking up the population:
“According to our research there were 7 registered sex offenders living in Ajo, Arizona in April 2010”
I swear to gawd there is no hope for me !! LOL
