Ever played Where's Waldo?

Well hello there kind peeps.

Let's start off this post with a little game. Let's see if you can spot my bicycle in the following picture. I know the pics are small here on SP, but try your best.

Didja find it?

Had a pretty good weekend. Tried to keep my walking up. Took the dog for a 2 mile walk, got a blister. Biked up to see Gram at the rehab facility. That was a good 32 mile ride. It was a great day for riding. Crystal clear fall day, cool temps. Had a crisp apple, so juicy it ran down my arm. (It was probably some evil GMO hybrid spliced with a watermelon.)

Got a Facebook update from one of my former collegues, saying he was at a local bar. So I popped in and wound up seeing a few more people I knew. It was a nice surprise. I never go bars anymore, so that was about the extent of my 'grown-up' weekend. Two delicious Newcastle Brown Ales. It turned out my one friend, Massage Michelle, sat right next to me at the bar, and didn't know it was me, because of my manly he-man macho beard.

Went bike shopping on Saturday, and... (What's that, department manager? Oh, ok.) Well, sorry, everyone! Gotta get back to work.

    Reminds me of my Monday mornings at work with my GF that rides a motorcycle and actually turned me onto SP. I can never measure up to her miles. Last paragraph reminds me of how lucky you are that you can spark from work! I live behind a banned wall of life in general at work. Religion and Restaurant menus are not even accessible! Have a great week youse, and engage that saddle!

    Get the wicking socks my friend, GET THEM!!!! I swear it's the best 8 bucks you'll ever spend on socks and I'm positive you can rock them with your biking sandals too! I'm looking at the height of your bike seat - dude, are you ten feet tall?? I think if I stood next to it, it would come up to my shoulders LOL

    Oh look! It's a rare sighting of the Grand Patriarchis Comfortado Bicyclus, commonly known as the Grand Marquis of Bikes! It's funny how we now have to savor the beer because it has become like an ice cream bar (a rare treat). You forgot to mention meeting your old friend CHUBBYLISA, a weekend highlight!!!

    You've got some wild followers here dude! Great attitudes, perfect for you. I don't know which reply I liked best, but it would have to be either the motorcycle envy, or the one from Homeland Security, LMAO

    Have a great week!

    I think I found it, what's the prize? Funny. What "they" say about riding a bike...not true. Last time I tried, lets just say I had a skinned knee, elbow and a bruised ego. That was about 5 years ago.

    Please beware of mutant fruit. Specifically, we've had recent reports of certain apples engineered for extreme juiciness, which could easily cause people's fingers to stick together and thus render them unable to dial our 800# to report suspicious bikers who try to hide their subversive bikes in the midst of innocent motorcycles.
