Today we have a guest blogger, see if you can guess who it is:
"Boo hoo, I am lonely and I havent had any exercise in too long. My "legs" feel flat and I think i am collecting dust. There are too many leaves on the ground and the wind is too strong these days to want to get moving." Oh well. Pretty soon I will just hibernate for the winter."
Who could that be?
Scroll down for the answer.
In the meantime there is a jealous sister who wants to be ridden as her time has been neglected by the owner's ( who remains nameless) desire to go fast. But she cant complain, she has gotten out a bit and gotten dirty. In defense of her owner the next blogger has to know that her owner really enjoys riding but that to her, getting dirty used to mean playing on clay tennis courts and having har-tru on her ankles. Or on a bad day, getting pegged in the leg with her opponents overhead. (And btw, that does leave a nice bruise, that would compete with those you get in cross)
"Why dont you go to a race with me? I will hold up well if you smack into a barrier, and if you would take me to the shop we could, as a team, figure out why i dont want to get into the big ring. Come on, it would be fun, you have to do one cross race this fall. You can run pretty good, so at least i could roll along side you if you choose not to ride me."
Meet Veloce, She is a sturdy gal that will stand by me through thick(mud) and thin (brush, grass, rain.) She could lighten up a bit but overall she is a pretty nice gal to have for the winter months. Soon she gains some winter weight but we all need fenders when life throws some splashing rooster tails up our backsides.
Last but never least is honey.
"I am happy because today we rode to Wayzata and had coffee at Caribou before the wind picked up. I still dont know how you drink espresso, because if that is what coffee really tastes like I will keep adding more honey and milk to mine!"
This ends my way too long experiment with my new camera. I am going to Atlanta for a wedding this weekend. a DARTMOUTH wedding so hope to see some Big Green on this site soon. Go BIG GREEN. I almost wrote Go INDIANS. I digress, an issue for another blog entry.
