Long-time readers of my blog will remember that I adopted a kitty about nine years ago. She was a pain in the ass, but we loved her anyway. I found her company far more agreeable than that of four fifths of the humans I have ever met.
She started acting very odd around Christmas time. I’ll spare you the details, but after several trips to multiple veterinarians, it became clear that she had a painful condition for which there was no available treatment, and that we should “put her to sleep.”
So, that’s what we did.
It’s a rather more emotional business than I was expecting.
World Cup Ski and Cycle in Camp Hill is having a bike swap this weekend. That means you can get a smokin’ good deal on a used bike.
Especially if you’re in the market for a 2004 Lemond Tourmalet! If you or a friend are tallish and in the market for a go-fast kind of bike, this is what you’re looking for.
The frame is aluminum, the fork is carbon fiber. It’s so light, if you don’t tie it down, it’ll float away. (Ok, it’s about 20 pounds) The stand over is 31.5″ and the top tube is 23″ long, so it won’t work for short people.
I put less than 500 miles on this bike and half of those were on the trainer. Yes, those are STI brifters.
Up front, there are three chainrings and 175mm cranks
9 cogs in the back and an Ultegra dérailleur.
It’s a very nice bike if you’re into going fast. The cat is not included.
If no one buys it this weekend, it’ll be up on ebay next week. I am trying to raise funds to buy a monkey.
So tell yer friends, tell yer neighbors. and get on down to Word cup and buy my bike. Please!
My cats are officially all grown up. They ate the last of the kitten food, and now it’s on to grown-up cat food. I commemorated the occasion with a (out of focus) photo.
My babies are all grown up now *snif*
The house is full of cardboard boxes, and the cats are going insane.
Wista is scratching the crap out of the couch.
Cringer is having flashbacks from his days as a homeless alley cat, living in the cardboard recycling bin.
