It's like I'm psychic or something. The letters are starting to come fast and furiously, with big chunks of letters being added in one fell swoop! "Woodpecker." [snicker]

Are you going to keep on adding letters to your last name?

Any word on the bar night this month? Does Julie always schedule that? I moved Critical Lass this month so I could be ready for drinking on the 15th, dammit.

Hope you didn't stay out on the sidewalk at the bar all night!  I ended up riding the entire way back to Evanston--made it in about a half hour or so.  See you on another ride!
