Things I learned on Sunday's Bike Ride...

  1. If you ride too fast your hat will fly off.
  2. Do not smile as you ride thru swarms of tiny insects.
  3. The Meramec is high and muddy.
  4. New logs have washed into Simpson Lake for the turtles to perch on.
  5. Missing two days of biking makes riding 6 miles tiresome.
  6. Some people are amused when I bike past with flags flying.
  7. Some people think I'm weird and avoid eye contact when I bike past with flags flying.
  8. There are more families using the trail on weekends.
  9. Biking makes me happy.
  10. Biking makes me very happy.

Rambler...

(Those of you in the know, know who Rambler is.  Those of you who do not know who Rambler is need to read more of my blog)


Yesterday Tiffany asked me to go biking with her.  Biking is not her thing.  She really was trying to jump start me.  It worked.  Biked 3 miles yesterday and 6 miles today.  I will bike 9 miles tomorrow and 16 miles on Friday (weather permiting).  The 16 miles will be on Grants Trail and all other rides are on the Greenway.  Did I mention that I love my Girlfriend?


Notes on yesterday's ride:
  1. I thought that my butt would be sore after not riding in a long time.  I was wrong.
  2. I thought that I would be exausted after not riding in a long time.  I was wrong.
  3. I thought that I might not want to ride today after not riding in a long time.
I was wrong.

Notes on today's ride:

  1. I love riding my bike.
  2. I love listening to music as I ride my bike.
  3. I love watching my flags flutter in the wind as I listen to music as I ride my bike.
  4. I love watching Nature as I ride down the bikepath.
  5. I love watching other people as I ride down the bikepath.
  6. I love watching the Meremac River as I ride down the bikepath.

Twigs decide to become garter snakes and race off as I ride down the bikepath!

Watching theCOOLtv...


ABC's
(K'NAAN featuring CHUB ROCK)

Bundle up my whole style is so cold
I glow like old guys who go bald
My flow got no front in the vocal
Your flow got no button it's so old

I don't mean to sound like a showboat
But it's true my persona's no joke
I stepped into some kinda portal
I'm legend and sometimes I'm noble

I'm from the most risky zone, oh
No place is more shifty global
More pistols, Russian revolvers
We shootin' all that is normal

But it ain't just because we want to
We ain't got nowhere we can run to
Somebody please press the undo
They only teach us the things that guns do

They don't teach us the ABC's
We play on the hard concrete
All we got is life on the streets
All we got is life on the streets

They don't teach us the ABC's
We play on the hard concrete
All we got is life on the streets
All we got is life on the streets

Rock, you know my era
B-boy seasoning, salt-n-pepa
Grown and sexy, come with the extra
Crushed up linen, fly like Cessna

This type brew, I gave it birth
Now it's time again to give it a verse
Jamaican born, not a fan of the ganja
Boulevard, Brooklyn to Somalia

And it goes in the background
Playa, that is my sound
The green doesn't symbolize I made it on the top
Pioneer legend and they call me Mr. Rock

No B word or N word, I don't need those words
Respect for hers
The game dried up, so we come with the grease
Leadin' ya right and treatin' ya right, so peace

They don't teach us the ABC's
We play on the hard concrete
All we got is life on the streets
All we got is life on the streets

They don't teach us the ABC's
We play on the hard concrete
All we got is life on the streets
All we got is life on the streets

Superman is known by the locals
As this dude who's so fly it's global
Attitude that came outta struggle
Destitute but I make it hopeful

You real but my real is tenfold
My real will make yours a rental
Gangsta if at ease, essential
Fight with guns or utensils

So bold, nothing's confidential
Breakfast was not continental
And lunch could not compliment all
We still become competent souls

These streets ain't paved with no gold
Matter fact someone stole the light bulb
Nobody fat enough for lypo
They don't teach us to read and write, so

They don't teach us the ABC's
We play on the hard concrete
All we got is life on the streets
All we got is life on the streets

They don't teach us the ABC's
We play on the hard concrete
All we got is life on the streets
All we got is life on the streets

Just got back from seeing a FREE movie!

Local Jazz Singer Erin Bode invited me to see the movie SALMON FISHING IN THE YEMEN.  Would have been a great date except she also brought her Husband and some odd 100 people to the free screening by GoFoBo.com.

Its raining, its pouring...

So of course I'm heading out to the Sophia M. Sachs Butterfly House in Faust Park.  It's part of the MOBO Gardens so I get in free (a big TY to Tif's Parents for the Membership)!  They are in the middle of the MARCH MORPHO MANIA and have over 3,000 free flying Morpho Peleides butterflies in their dome.  I'm taking my camera...

David<~~~~~~~~has always loved butterflies!
