Here comes the sun

It's all right.

It’s all right.

One of these days I’m bound to get tired of the view out the back door. But not today.

My mood may be extraordinarily light because we’re actually getting a refund from Uncle instead of having to forward the usual duffel bag full of tear-stained greenbacks to the Eternal Revenue Service.

I’ve lobbied heavily to direct this windfall toward consumer spending, in order to jump-start the economy going into the 2016 elections, but Herself just chuckles and tells me to get back to work. I think she’s a closet Republican.

    I’ve got to move.

    Gorgeous sunrises and sunsets here.

    But the rest of the day, it’s the Front Range Inversion I’m looking at, a brown blanket stretching from Pike’s, across downtown, right by the Flatirons, to Long’s and beyond.

    The folks who live in Denver have no idea help their city is because you can’t see it from street level. You got a step back a little bit to realize the brown sludge you’re breathing every day

    If you want to take over economy-jumping duties for me, I’ll gladly hand you the keys.

    Took me a while to figure this out, but kids are terrible for the environment but great for the economy. I used to think I was a pretty serious shitter, but my collective 60 lbs of two and four year olds go through a mega pack of Charmin in about 24 hours. A box of Kleenex on the counter doesn’t stand a fighting chance. And don’t get me started about ba and don’t get me started about band-aids.

    Great photo, Patrick! Sounds like your new life south of the border is agreeing with you.

    My modest refund, when it eventually arrives, is destined to pay bills, sorry to say.

    Jump starter: bike or a Mac – it’s all work related, right?

    Tax refunds are good. Life is good.
    Good morning!
    I’m getting the “Is this walk ever going to happen?” look from the Duffinator. Duty calls.

    Nice day up here, but given it is spring, the wind is up. Five miles into a pollen-laden headwind has left me a little grumpy and dazed. Where is the coffee?

    I’m trying to shake the bronchitis my wife gave me before I head north for L-B-L. Meanwhile we’re (between coughing fits) trying to entertain the visiting in-laws. Our weather is nice though. Just like a couple of years ago at Flanders, I’m doing great “training” before I get my legs torn off by Peter Easton and his crew at Velo Classic Tours. This will complete my goal of seeing all 5 monuments of cycling live, in-person. Provided I survive until then of course!
