"But I Could Have Told You, Vincent..."

How fortunate am I?!!
When weather gets a little schmutzy I get to sit around, surf the net, and still get paid.
We had rain yesterday afternoon, dropping the temperature from the high 90's down to about 70 degrees, resulting in an evening with reduced visibilities and low scud all around.
So the phone rings and my communication specialist says, "Weather check for..."
and I laugh before they can even finish the sentence.
I joke... "What are you trying to do, kill us?!!"
On nights like this they know the answer before they ask, but they still HAVE to ask.

Anyway, while being paid well for sitting on my can, last evening I found a neat site and I'd like to share it with you.
My life has been a blessed one, and there are VERY FEW people I envy.
This guy is one of 'em.
If you like bikes and things mechanical, poke around and enjoy.
(You'll have to tolerate bein' subjected to a thirty-second ad, but it's worth it.)

Oh yeah. How gorgeous is that??

One of the perks of being, literally, rich and famous. But I'd be like Jay; tons of bikes and a few cars.

Once upon a time I owned an Ariel Square Four. It wasn't in the best condition like the Vincent but to me it was the coolest bike around. Sounded just like an Offenhauser at Indy. I fell in love.
