    Found a hitch for our X5 at the local LKQ yesterday, and installed it this morning:

    I then drove out to LA to buy a bike rack, but seller and I couldn't quite connect. Ended up driving out for nothing which was a bummer and screwed up my afternoon ride!

    It was a good try.

    I'd say they were just getting warmed up! But us antipodean folk consider drinking a sport.

    Take for example David Boon (Legendary Aussie cricket player), he managed to consume 52 beers (cans) on a flight from Australia to London in 1989. The fact he did it whilst drinking the absolute swill that is VB :sick: is beyond belief!

    Ignoring the stopover it still works out to more than 2 beers an hour for 23 hours straight.

    I've been on some heroic benders in my time. One that comes to mind started with a dance festival in London on a Saturday afternoon and ended in Hiroshima on a Tuesday. Still didn't even come close to those sort of stats.

    Cause I installed new CV axels, motor mounts, and a new tire (after the old one had a blow out) in my daughters car today. Saved her $400 in labor.

    I had plans to meet my buddy at JPL for a ride. My alarm went off at 7 and as I got up I heard the rain start pouring down.
    I ended up going to Burbank to take my friends’ pup for a walk- because we’ve been dog sitting the cute little guy. We walked over to Let’s Ride (the shop that runs the LA Tourist race.) As we were leaving the bike shop we walked by the model trail store next door and I decided that when I’m at a place in my life where I can’t ride a bike on my own I’m going to take up model train-ing. Seems like a fun, dignified way to bow out. And, I love the idea of building tiny, whimsical landscapes.

    Good call it poured here too. Grandsons game got rained out. Next time you are out this way Fallbrook there is a front yard a guy who loves trains has built. It is amazing to see what he has built.

    The previous owner of our house was into model trains. There was a 60' x 25' area outside that had bridges (some made of wood), waterfalls, a pond, and who knows what else. I can't find any pictures of it, but some of the tracks and such were still there when we bought the place.
    I also have a friend that made a real steam engine that you could ride on. I think I posted pictures of it here a few years ago.

    Feeling the effects of the eclipse, and global warming and mourning the death of a misunderstood murderer... and the dog ate my bicycle. You get the idea. Anyway, my back has been feeling it lately so I took a day off.
