In my ongoing, strenuous effort to provide content that can only be found in many places, I offer the following, along with a report of the Jimmy move. Also, I did not participate in the roving ride today. Any ride that requires me to begin my drive during an hour beginning with the number 6, is a hard drive for me to start. First, what follows is a letter to the editor in a Solvang, CA newspaper. Solvang is where a Tour of California time trial takes place and is a popular destination for tour groups, pro cycling training camps, etc.. The woman needs counseling.
Many people showed up to help move Jimmy Richardson's belongings, including Mark V, Fkying Tuna, Eve and hubby, Steve Houck and a few others. We had a snack break and I was a bit too slow to capture a classic scene of Cindy, with head buried in bag of snacks. So furious was the motion of hands to mouth with pretzels and chips that it reminded me of a ravenous raccoon, attacking an uncovered trash can. In this image, Raccoon is making a hasty exit but I caught her just before she could leave.
That's Jimmy in the background, confined in a wheelchair and a little medicated. In the foreground is Mark V, looking a lot medicated.
