Big Day Today

Big day today. No not Valentine's Day, although I am wondering where all my anonymous gifts are.  And no it's not a big day because I have chemo today.  I do, but whatever to chemo.

Back in 1988, I was given a Univega by Mom as a college graduation present. I took the long route to graduating. 9 years.  Those 9 years are a story all on their own.  I loved and love that bike. It's a steel framed bike, that is basically a tank. I still ride it occasionally, although it's been missing a front brake for 3 years, the chain has been way too loose and other cables are frayed.  Last weekend, I took the Univega to a new bike shop in Long Beach that refurbishes old bike. It's a awesome shop.  My bike is ready. So today I got a ride to work and at noon, I'll get dropped off at the bike shop to ride my bike home.  It's about an 8 mile ride.  I am very excited. My bike is going to look great, I get to ride home and I feel good.  That is why it is a big day today.

Tonight, I'll be all jacked up on my steroids, so someone may be receiving random emails and texts at 3 AM.
