O My Aching Back

2 Aug

Some random Thots:

Why can I ride but not run or walk without pain? So I rode this morning 25 miles.

I bought a Bike rack for my garage:

On sale this week at Target for $39.99. Kinda neat and gives me a little more floor space.

I got a bonus this week. Here is what I want buy. Let me know what you think!

1. A new jersey. My Quintanna Roo jersey is torn from my fall in November but I wear it anyway so it needs replacing. I like the Discovery Channel last day of the Tour jersey but I don’t want to be a poseur.

2. New cycling shorts. I would like a really comfortable pair with a good pad. What kind do you use?

3. A new helmet – my helmet is scraped from my fall in Nov. So a new Giros is in order.

4. A media PC by HP for my big screen HD TV. It would replace the DVD, CD Changer, VCR and give me TIVO type of recording ability and I can put all my cds on the hard drive. It also decodes Dolby 6.1 for my sound system. It has two tuners so I can use my PIP features too.

5. A new digital camera. Cannon or Nikon. I like both but I have an old Cannon already so maybe my lens would fit the Cannon EOS?

6. Nice dinner at a fancy restaurant. Sign of the Vine or Chardonnay but I’ve gotta find someone to go with since I don’t want to eat alone.

7. A weekend get-a-way over Labor Day weekend. But I don’t know where to go… Mexico? Italy? —that’s a week but I have a place to stay in Rome and a car to use plus a scooter.

A penny for your thots!

    I think you should buy me something…I didn’t get my usual spring bonus this year and I am so sad…That said, I thought you were thinking of a new tri bike?

    I’d go for the long weekend in Italy or the digital camera …Government employees don’t get bonuses but we do get several holidays so I guess my complaints fall on deaf ears …What ever you do with your bonus, enjoy it!

    I was with you Oldman, do em all. I mean really you can’t do a trip to Mexico or Italy w/o a new camera, new jersey, shorts, helmet, have a good dinner wherever you go. Plus you have to be able to download everything with the latest technology.
