It started off a slow news day, and I was going to be retrospective…which I still will, but first, NASCAR Teddy is bleeding the fuel lines again. More layoffs, more pay cuts. Teddy, I’ve got to ask “Parker gave back his bonus. Et tu?” Yeah, I know, as long as the SOB breaks even you don’t care. Don’t make me look up your golf handicap again.

Yesterday marked the one year anniversary of our move to The Farm. A year ago I had one working toilet, no working shower, no working kitchen sink and one big black Doberman. Now all the toilets work, the shower works, the kitchen sink works and I have a blue and a red Doberman but my big black prince is gone. He thought I bought him a dog park when we moved in here. Today I met one of the icons of the modern Doberman. She’s had dogs at Westminster and won just about every where else. I showed her a picture of my “Hillbilly Dobermans”. She looked at them and said “He’s got a really nice head piece. Don’t call him a hillbilly.” It was sweet. He’s a hillbilly and I like it that way. Don’t let that long hair hide that red neck boy.
Sunday Ride on Monday
I did the Diablo loop yesterday. The only difference was that I rode up Ygnacio instead of coming up Treat. It’s tougher coming up Ygnacio but it’s over quicker. The distance is exactly the same.
