Lots Happening Today


I was really pushing to get to my hair dresser for an 8 AM appointment.  When I approached the last traffic light a block from the salon the cop cars began arriving. Town cops, state police, and unmarked police cars.  They crossed my path and stopped just a few yards from where I was waiting for the light to change.  When I looked I saw a kid running across the street being chased by two cops.  I rode to the side street in time to see the kid on the ground with two cops hovering over him. (photo on the right above) It was five till eight and I had a decision to make.  Needless to say, I was late for my hair cut.  These two kids chose a house that had camera surveillance. The owner was at work and his phone alerted him to movement in his house.  He logged in and saw the two burglars and the rest is history. The homeowners video is HERE

It was also day 8 of my 30 days of biking commitment. Not much to say about that except as usual I took some photos.  The big news however is a phone call I got from Thailand on WhatsApp, an application that lets you text or make calls over the internet to anyone in the world who is both on the internet and has WhatApp.

#3 son Brandon’s lady Janea, told me that they found him on the side of the road unconscious after being hit by a car.  He was returning from the Crit races in Austin.  He is going to be OK in time, but is a hurt’n puppy now.  Broken collar and severe concussion.  The world has certainly gotten smaller with me getting a call from Thailand telling me about something that happened in Austin.

Racing the Rain


Day 7 of 30 Days of biking
Day 7 of 30 days of biking

I wanted to get a ride in simply to satisfy my 30 days of biking commitment.  I figured to be racing the rain and on the way home after the coffee shop and market stop, the wind really began to whip up it’s fury.  I knew the rains were imminent as soon as the wind died down. Well….It’s two hours later and still no rain.  I’m taking the dogs for a long walk and if the rain has still not arrived, I’m gong for a bike ride to the city for lunch.  Mind you, I ride in the rain.  I don’t like it, but I do.  Wish me luck.
