i've tried to post this 3 different times. The first, the DSL started giving me funky messages. i'm blaming the downstairs, non-filtered phone, but who knows? The second, the computer just locked up, mid-function. the "controlaltdelete" didn't even work. who knows? the third, locked up again. i'm now blaming blogger's photo thing. it locked up both times right around trying to load pics. but who knows?
well, had a good commute under interesting conditions today. a.m. 50F with 25mph winds gusting to 40mph+. almost fell one time from wind gust. another time, i was pedaling downhill going 8mph at one point. had to laugh.
p.m. temps had fallen to 30 with a stiff breeze. went prepared and had no problems. took an intentional detour of abt a mile down an old, brick alley. love those 2" Serfas. i beginning to believe they're the perfect urban commuting tire. also helps me understand the appeal of the Pugsley as well. go anywhere!
gonna add some pics, but gonna save first. :-) Gremlins!
this is first a pic of the tag "ECAS". muy interestingly, this is the tag of 'lance's', yes 'lance's' older son. he got caught last year some time (2005), had to do service hours and pay restitution. i don't know if this is one of the documented tags. i hope it is, b/c otherwise Mr. "ECAS" is back in business and that's disappointing. i appreciate creativity, but vandalism ain't the answer.
i like this shot of one branch of the Beargrass, this taken from the Butchertown Greenway. it's, perhaps, a good example of how the Beargrass could've been used throughout the city if it hadn't been channeled all over the place. it's only .5 long, but it's a pleasant diversion. too bad it's so short.
and finally another pic of the Beargrass under the old River Rd. bridge. not particularly appealing, nor even a good pic, but the Ohio is right head. really this is a pretty bad pic now that i look at it. oh well.
maybe this will actually post in its present form.
