aaaaaaaaaaaand I'm in. I purchased this bike at the University Of Washington Police department annual bike sale. I waited in line for an hour and 45 minutes for the doors to open at 9:00AM. Roughly 200 bikes available and I was 65-80 back in line. Each person was allowed to buy 2 complete bikes, and as many parts units as they wanted. Would I get 1, I hoped so. First guy inline was there at 3:20am, and he walked out with a carbon roadbike for $250.00 at 9:05. The police let 10 people in at a time, I finally saw bikes around 9:45.



I got this gem for $10.00 plus a Bridgestone Mixtie with a 4 speed Nexus Hub for $10.00 as well.

ahhh yes, the title. We live in a home that was built in the 1960's. The aging septic system finally gave out, leaving us to go to family members homes to shower, laundry mat to wash our clothes, and renting a sani-can to avoid the use of a lovely chamber pot from medieval times. Let me tell you, stress levels have never been higher.

To add to my stress, my 14 year old son, who is defending state champion for BMX racing stepped off the curb at school on April fools day and broke his leg. Rolled his ankle and snapped his Fibula. Now my racer can't race. AAAAAAHHHHHHH Calgon, take me away!

I can honestly say over the past few days I feel a lot better. Septic service restored, topsoil going down for new grass, my son got the DR's okay to ride again (he raced cruiser class yesterday and won his 1st race back!) and I'm playin' pedalcycles with you fine folks!
