Toot! Officially 40 lbs. down! Feels good to get there.
Here's a couple of comparison shots. I snap a webcam pic every day, for my own amusement and observation.

Thank you, friends, for stroking my blogging ego. You all make it very fun. I wish i could serve all of you strong hot tea and crumb cake in my living room right now.
I biked over to the voting poll yesterday, to vote for city council pri... Read more
Why do I blog? Hmm...
Last night I had a little reflection about why I blog. Why do I blog?
1) So that girls will read it, look lovingly at my page, and say, "Oh, Al D. You're so funny, dreamy, and insightful. *sigh*"
2) Uh... Well I guess that's the o... Read more
"Did you hear that? Wake up! Do you guys hear something? No, seriously this time!"
Heya Speepers! Bright and sun-shiney weekend, this one past.
Last night I agreed to a backyard camp out. My daughter and I set up the tent, filled it up with blankets and pillows and flashlights, and all the stuff. Good times. I final... Read more
A good Wednesday, a good ride.
Thanks for thoughts and prayers for Gram, everyone. I went to see her last night, and it was a big improvement. She's still in ICU, and on a respirator. But she acknowledged my presence, looked me in the eyes, and nodded to my questions. The... Read more

Nerd talk: Got myself a new battery for the bike odometer. The odometer displays User1, User2 and User1+2 total. So when I transferred my milage after putting in the new battery, I used User1 for all of my previous years' mileage (305), and U... Read more
Q: What has 4 wheels and weighs 700 lbs?
A: Me and a buddy!
Yesterday's biking miles came easy, and my pace was higher than normal. The weather was fantastic, right around 71 degrees, with little to no breeze. Two hours fly by in a heartbeat.
A couple of years ago, I ran i... Read more
Waiter, I would like extra worms in my salad.
Well hello everybody, and happy Monday.
I like Mondays, because after work is over, I usually have the evening to myself. And can ride ride ride. On the weekend, I don't exercise as much as I would like, because my daughter gets bored, an... Read more
Cross-country Skiing through Dust Bunnies
My daughter likes to go riding with me. Sometimes. (If the ride is short, and the destination is a park.) But she gets bored on the two-hour rides, and understandably so.
Since I haven't been on a ride in a couple of days, I started ey... Read more
Pirate girls on bicycles!
Well, a quick report. While I haven't fallen off the bandwagon, I have noticed myself making lazier choices. For example, I started substituting iced tea for water. I started drinking watered-down Kool-Aid. Beer. Sugar cereal for breakfast.... Read more
