1- for this day... November 27th. Why? Because Jimi Hendrix was born on this day in 1942.
2- that both of my sons took a nap, freeing me up to go for a ride. (And for my wife who agreed to stay home and watch them)
3- for the two old guys sitting in the shade next to the skate park watching their grandsons. They offered me a beer within 30 seconds of my pulling up to take a rest.
4- for the clerk at the Circle K in the sketchy neighborhood that let me bring my bike inside while I bought another beer.
5- for six inch travel forks and healthy wrists.
6- for 12 year old bikes that are as fun to ride now as they were the first day they were built.
7- for short steep climbs that lead to big desert views.
8- for 83 degree Thanksgiving days.
9- for jerseys with full length zippers.
10- that the only thing "black" about my Friday will be my buddy Mike when he comes over to eat leftovers.
Punk rock is as punk rock does,
PS- Yeah, I'm a little late in posting this. You think this place is run by professionals or something?
