Spin Cycle

While the washing machine is chasing out all the grunge, mud, and grit from my bike shop clothes and my riding duds, I figured I had a few minutes to sit down and waste some bandwidth.  There is either not much on my mind or there is so much crammed in there, all I hear is a dull roar as all those things needing my attention scream, holler, and stamp their feet in a vain attempt to get my attention.

Ferchrisakes, calm down.  And you there, yeah you, the returns I need to get to UPS.  Stop pouting.  You'll be on your way back from whence you came by day's end. 

I know, I know.  Yard, you have been ignored in recent weeks.  Hey, it's not my fault.  The weather wasn't cooperating there for awhile and well now, I'm busier than a .............Well you know what I mean.  I'll be out trimming you back and rubbing you down this weekend................I promise.

What's that?

Oh, you don't believe me.

Well get in line.  And here's a quarter to call someone who gives a shit.

Everything in it's own time........Well Geez guys, riled all of you up with that one.  You need to talk one at a time or I just cannot deal with you.  All you irritating duties and chores will continue to suck hind tit while I try to keep the madness at bay down to the bike shop if you don't cool your jets.  So be quiet and I might get some of you out of the way.  Or keep whining and I will walk around you until Hell freezes over.  Your choice.

Ah, that's better.  Now see.  When everyone quiets down I can almost single out one of you to dance with.

Damn.  It's a bitch being popular.

It is so reassuring to stop back in after a long absence and see that my first blog friend Mike is still at it, fixing bikes, grousing about the yard and doing his laundry. You are a refuge today, sir, and I am grateful.

Dang! I'm supposed to be doing laundry right this very minute - but I'm drinking coffee with you instead.
I figure that the universe is guiding me to exactly where I need to be.

Weather's the worst. It rains, then you wait for the grass to dry out a bit so it doesn't clump up when you cut it, then it rains again, cycling cycles on the cyclotron.

Looks like life is either steak or hot dogs for you Mike. No happy medium. Oh and if you have a minute there's this piano I'd like you to help me move. :-)
