Son of Return to Beyond the Valley of Fashion Friday

coming-soonAnybody still hanging around here? Hello? (Thump thump thump.) This thing on?

It’s been a wee bit hectic around El Rancho Pendejo since last we chatted.

Le Tour started, and Le Tourists promptly started crashing right the hell out of it.

The mom-in-law popped round from Tennessee.

Deadlines for Adventure Cyclist and Bicycle Retailer arrived and departed, bearing full payloads of merde.

And poor Mister Boo surrendered 10 teeth to the doggie dentist. He is taking his nourishment in gruel form for the next two weeks and I fear for his digestive tract. Also, our brick floors.

But now, the good news: The Old Guys Who Get Fat In Winter jersey shop should be up and running sometime next week at Voler.

Once I get the green light, I’ll announce it here and add a permanent link to the online store at upper right, in the sidebar. Then I’ll just lean back in this titanium-and-carbon La-Z-Boy with a flagon of 2003 Domaine de la Romanèe Conti in one hand and a snifter of cocaine in the other and wait for the money to start rolling in. I’ve already ordered up a sixpack of courtesans, and they ain’t in business for laughs, y’know.

    Luca Paolini is now free to share your snifter. He can model the jerseys, too. What’s another Tourist at El Rancho and a Pendejo to boot.

      Poor ol’ Loco Paolini. I had no idea people were still enjoying the Dumb Dust. It was plenty dumb when I was doing it back in the Eighties.

      I had a rough moment while facing my one and only drug test, for a job at The Los Angeles Times, but i managed to beat the lab rats on that one.

      To no particular purpose, as it turned out. I didn’t get the gig, though I did get a free trip to LA and was paid for trying out on the copy desk. But at least I can claim, as have others before me, “I have never tested positive.”

      • Libby Says:

        Yes, the Paolini situation is dumb and strange, too. The LA Times missed the boat by not offering you a job!

    Never had much of an interest in the white powdery stuff. Being descended from a family of musicians on my mom’s side (I, on the other hand, can barely play the stereo), there were too many horror stories about needles, cold turkey (and not on rye) and other bad shit. That put The Fear into me, even in my misspent youth, against progressing past good old Panama Ditch Weed.

    Back to relevance. Patrick, are the sizes on these jerseys going to be the same as the old sizing? I think mediums always worked just fine on me. That one I was wearing for the Rt. 66 ride was a Med.

    • Patrick O'Grady Says:

      I liked cocaine just fine, but it never got hold of me. Nicotine was the toughest monkey on my back. Took me years to dump the sonofabitch.

      Sizing should be comparable to the old stuff, K. We’re going with club cut. In the old Mad Dog Media kit I can wear a large club cut, but the two race-cut jerseys I have are XL.

      That said, the large Adventure Cycling kit seems just a tiny bit snugger than my old MDM kit. If anyone’s nervous, I can order a couple for myself to gauge fit and then spread the word.

      • Pat O'Brien Says:

        Nicotine will test your ass to be sure. Took me a long time to get rid of it too, especially those pipes. Only Savonellis, if it makes any difference to Larry T. Bikes had a large part in getting rid of that nasty habit.

        My Voler jerseys, including my old OGWGFIW jersey, are all club cut. For me the sizing has been consistent over the last 10 or so years.

        Poor Boo, first an eye, now teeth. How old is the little man anyway?

      • Pat O'Brien Says:

        Savinelli. I can’t spell Italian it seems.

    Mister Boo surrendered 10 teeth to the dentist? Ouch, that’s got to be more painful than Tony Martin’s collarbone pieces. Hope The Boomeister makes a speedy and full recovery…..and the Chez Pendejo remains unscathed.

    Looking forward to the jerseys as well!!

    I may not post all the time but i’m always hanging around.

    Poor Mister Boo,. Please extend my sympathies to him. My cat Smokey lost about half of his teeth a few years ago. He’s doing fine now. Still gobbles down his kibble with no trouble at all. His remaining teeth seem to be doing ok.
