This was another fine week, summer is seemingly flying by. It feels like it's been Bike Week around here. I just got back from the bike shop with Wolfgang. He's feeling all rich and bought a new mountain bike. This after yesterday when Chaco bought himself a new cyclocross bike. Apparently he's feeling rich too. Well... not anymore I guess.
Meego, Magnum, and I went on a nice bike ride this morning (no new bikes for us though). Magnum's sister is on a planning committee that is revitalizing the bike trails and paths around our downtown, and the group had an event this morning. So the three of us pedaled on down, did the tour, then pedaled back. They had a decent turnout for the tour - close to 100 pedalers - it will be nice when the project is all finished. And it was a very pleasant way to spend time at the end/start of another busy week.

During the game, there were 11 winners of cars, just selected at random. Yeah, they were used cars but still! A friend of mine from PEO was there with her teen granddaughter, she stopped by the concession stand. I told her I didn't know she was a Sky Sox fan, and she admitted she was just there hoping to win a car.
In movie news, Magnum and I watched Lucy. It started out okay, but then crashed and burned in our opinions. I'm really curious as to how the producers got Scarlett Johansson and Morgan Freeman to be in it.
This week was actually pretty cloudy/gloomy weather-wise. We're still getting rained upon more than seems usual, but not a bad as in May. I snapped this photo one rare sunny day this week.
It was a lovely day to be out commuting... up here, not necessarily down there.
