I HAD TO GIVE UP HAVING A PICK-UP TO KEEP THE CARS I CURRENTLY HAVE WHERE WE CURRENTLY LIVE, SO I'VE HAD TO GET CREATIVE WITH WHAT I'VE GOT:
PICKING UP OUR NEW TV
I bought a Rubbermaid storage shed (how pathetic is that?) at Lowes last night. They told me to wait in the loading area, so I did. I see them at the far end with the two big boxes on a cart and one guy is driving a fork truck. They look down the building and see a speck of a car with a guy (me) waving an arm at them. So they put the boxes on the fork truck to drive it down. The second guy is now not needed, but you can tell he wants to know what is going on. As they are driving slowly towards me, I can see and hear them discussing the problem they are about to encounter, as all they can see is the front of a tiny lowered sports car with the top down. "We had to have pulled the wrong order" says one of them. I said, "Keep coming and it will make sense in a minute." Finally they get around and can see the trailer, so they load it on. Rhonda was hiding inside the store. A guy in a Diesel drove by and had a smirk on his face. My smirk was saying that tonight I did the job of his $40,000 truck with a $4000 sports car that passed a $40,000 Audi S4 on the racetrack the week before. Life is good.
THIS PICTURE IS PARTICULARLY EXCITING BECAUSE FRIDAY AUGUST 4, 2006 IS THE FIRST TIME SINCE THE CRASH ON SEPTEMBER 14, 2004 THAT I'VE RIDDEN A/THE BIKE. AND SINCE I BELONG TO THE 'COUNTRY CLUB' (MUST BE SAID LIKE THURSTON HOWELL III ON GULLIGAN'S ISLAND WOULD HAVE SAID IT....LOVEY!) I GOT A HALF HOUR SESSION ON THE 3.1 MILE ROAD COURSE ON FRIDAY MORNING ALL TO MYSELF. I NEEDED IT. I LOOKED LIKE JUNK OUT THERE. AND MAN WAS I STIFF FOR DAYS!
OUR NEW CHAIR
THESE GUYS CERTAINLY KNOW HOW TO MAXIMIZE THE UTILITY OF THEIR MACHINES!
