motorists notwithstanding

When man invented the bicycle he reached the peak of his attainments. Here was a machine of precision and balance for the convenience of man. And (unlike subsequent inventions for man's convenience) the more he used it, the fitter his body became. Here, for once, was a product of man's brain that was entirely beneficial to those who used it, and of no harm or irritation to others. Progress should have stopped when man invented the bicycle.

good busy

I was up early for a long walk with the dogs. After breakfast I did some cleaning, laundry, and grocery shopping. With all that out of the way I enjoyed a brisk (45F) ride south of town (22 miles). Now I'm settling in for the FCS college football championship (go Bison!) followed by KU at Oklahoma in hoops (go Jayhawks!) and a weekend of NFL wildcard games. (go whoever makes it interesting!). Have a good weekend. ( )s rule!

p.s. The Bison won! Woohoo! The Jayhawks rallied to beat Oklahoma, and with apologies to Missouri fans, Kansas State destroyed Mizzou. They CAN'T win the Big 12 in their last season in the Big 12! Pretty good day.
