I'm having serious doubts about this whole "Italian Trip" thing...


Good luck with the training, er, I mean "travels", Naitch!

Stai parlando con il Rolex che indossa, indossa un anello di diamanti, che ruba baci, WOOO! spaccio volante, giro in limousine, volo in jet figlio di una pistola e faccio fatica a tenere a bada questi alligatori! WOOOO!

Gasoline in my neighborhood is over $6.60 US for the β€œgood” stuff. 91 octane gasohol.

I saw Diesel as high as seven dollars although the average prices are closer to $6.50.

That’s why you can’t find bicycle parts or good quality bicycles for sale at a reasonable price. High gasoline prices have driven the demand for bicycles way up. As for me I’m just preparing for a future where they take my car away because I’m too old to drive.

(Let them try to take my bicycles! LoL)
That's not the good stuff, I can still buy leaded racing gas that's around $9.00 a gallon..

I went to Wally mart yesterday they had two racks of 24" mountain bikes from last year on clearance. Don't know how much they were, but they are cheap if I had to guess. As for being to old to drive, screw em if they try to take your bikes from you.... RideOnn....

I just hope I’m not reduced to stealing lawnmower engines for transportation.

Here is a wicked pic that me and Queenfish got in Riomaggiore earlier in our vacation.

Here is what the town looked like on the approach from the boat.

I have a feeling that bike building is the furthest thing from your mind in these photos! As it should be!
Wow, did you ever land on a fabulous 'stretch' of fine weather !

Spent our last Italian night having dinner with this amazing view of the Milano Duomo.

On our way back to the hotel we danced to a street musician sax player and an Italian female Ric Flair fan caught us on video. (sound on). Woooooooooo. That's Amore!!! What a perfect ending to a Silver Anniversary trip!

Congratulations!

I wanted to go on a trip like that. On my wife's 60th I gave her what she'd been talking about. A new kitchen trash can.
There was a pile of cash in the bottom and a card that said: "Pick a ship. Anywhere. This should cover it."

She bought new furniture.

:headbang:

But she did quit complaining that, "We're never going to go to Hawaii!"

The wife and I did a couple cruises and a trip to Singapore right before Covid kicked in. We're getting set to do some more traveling in the near future.
