    10 miles of sweet singletrack on the Zank SS to bring me to my office door. No complaints here.

    New lady at the barbershop cut my hair nice.
    Sold my TT bike yesterday.
    Realized that fried carrots are nice (friend in bacon fat).
    56 minutes till the weekend.

    Guy came by the shop really looking for help. 26 years old, 400+ lbs. He drew a line in the sand & wants to change his life. Walking more than 15 mins is painful on his joints. He wants a bike thats easy to ride, capable of handling his weight. After he paid his deposit, I decided to do domething that I never, ever do. I bumped him to the front of the line. I'm very excited about building this guy something that will change his life :)

    I'm going to the JT and Jay-Z concert tonight! (that's kind of a joke based on the Thursday Grump)

    Rode my bike for the first time in 31 days!

    Got my dog back yesterday!

    Replace my bedroom TV today!

    Wife is blowing all my bonus money on semi-cool things! - wait that should be a grump.

    You forgot that you're on the verge of a weekend of riding and a pool party.

    I'm just happy that for the first time in months I don't have to run any errands after work tonight. I'm taking my wife on a date!

    It was 55F at the start of my commute this monring. I mean DC in the summer and 55F, this is unreal.

    I just ordered a new computer and will be running a RAID 5 configuration.

    Take her to SunLife Stadium at 8 PM! On second thought, a date is definitely cheaper.

    I mentioned you were going and she started singing JT songs. *sigh* You're a brave man.

    Got through my presentation at NASA this afternoon. Been anticipating it all week. It had to be on Friday (after lunch). Now I am going home and will have a beer, just one, b/c we have Open House and Meet the Teacher at school tonight. The oldest boy starts 1st Grade Monday. Weekend beginning...now.
    The mountains are calling and I must go.

    I emailed Vanilla to get on the waiting list for the waiting list. So there's that.

    If you don't know about Large Fella on a Bike he's someone who was in your client's present shoes. You may want to pass along the link to him.

    I'm sure you've got a good plan on how to construct his frame nor do I want to step on anyone's toes but IIRC from a long ago Riv Reader Bob Brown built the bike and probably has some good ideas on how to proceed.
