the next big thing in girl bands?

As requested... "Bella and the Mudflaps":





Nice ring to it?  Maybe a name for our girl band?

We'll probably have major drought now.  But anyway, I like the flaps.  No more mud speckled me.  A nice feature is that, once they're mounted *snicker*, it's just a matter of snapping them on and off at will.

No need for mudflaps today, though.  After a dismal drizzly couple of days, we're back to sweetness and sunshine.  I feel better, the greyness was making me grouchy.

In other news, Napolion the mighty hunter is in full predator mode.  A few days ago, he bagged another huge gopher, plopped on the welcome mat, pigged out, then left the parts he didn't want.  Gee, thanks.

Then he came inside and decided the gopher didn't agree with him and left those parts too.  In the living room.

I looked at him.  He looked at me.  Was it shame I sensed?  Yes, he definitely communicated, "OMG, I can't believe I just did that!"  Then he left the room to cower in a closet.  I swear he was embarrassed!  Mighty hunters do NOT barf!

It took him about a day, then he was over the BOS (Barf of Shame) and back in form.

Just wanted to share that because I couldn't just blog about mudflaps.  Be glad there are no pictures.

  1. THOSE are mud flaps? Like, from the Enterprise? And here I was envisioning actual FENDERS.

  2. The mudflaps are pretty cool! Bella's looking a bit intimidating.

    Napolion? Not sounding so intimidating. (Poor baby!)

    1. Well, she's intimidating the mud and muck anyway :D
      And don't tell Napolion I told you, he has an image to upkeep.

  3. I'm obviously a mud flap virgin. I had no idea that's what they looked like. Hope you get the chance to try them out soon!?
    Napolion cracks me up! But only because I don't have to live with him. Wonder if he learned his lesson about gophers....

    1. Well, once you go flap, you never go back!
      Lucky for Napolion, he cracks me up too. Otherwise...

  4. I am with Shadow, I had no idea they even made mud flaps for bikes. Now you're probably guaranteed sunshine by getting those.

  5. BOS. I like that. Would make a great blog post if you were willing to post those "trophies". Not sure how you followers (minions) would appreciate it, tho.

    Love the mud flaps. I'm with Lotta Joy and that looks like some sort of Star Trek nacelle thingy. Hope it keeps the mud off of your back.

    1. I'm pretty sure there will be more "trophies", so I'll keep the suggestion in mind.
      I'm wondering if the macho flaps were invented by a woman - a washwoman.

  6. Few accessories make a mou'ain bike more BA than a set of black fenders. The clearance between them and the wheels exudes even more BA'ness, as if to say "Dude, that clearance is for the mud accumulation". BA.

    Getting reintroduced to the gopher you had for lunch? Not so BA. Maybe you better check that closet for a possible aftershock....
