The rain popped up and caused me to (gleefully) give up my ride last night. Had the weather been better I would have gone out and most likely enjoyed my ride, but it wasn’t, so I didn’t. Instead I joined the boss for some happy hour libations and appetizers at The Pub Perimeter.
My shame appears due to the fact that I could not convince myself to get out of bed and ride this morning. I would have beaten the heat and any afternoon rain, and gotten some much-needed exercise. But no, I rolled over and went back to sleep instead. Shame, shame, shame on me.

There is none. Shame, shame, shame on me.
Because I Forgot
Theoretically I will be riding the first day of BRAG with ITP-Reader Barb, Allan, and many others. The weather forecast looks pretty grim, but one can always hope.
I was supposed to bring a bag of clean clothes with me to Hartwell last weekend to give to them so that I would have clothes available at the ride’s end on Sunday. I forgot. Shame, shame, shame on me.
Therefore tonight I shall be driving to Marietta with the change-o-clothes that I packed up last night, and thankfully remembered to put into the M6 this morning. In addition to clothes I will be bringing some Heirloom Market BBQ. I’ve yet to eat Heirloom’s food, and I’ll bring dinner for Barb and Allan as a penance for my forgetfulness, payback for the food the brought to me last Saturday, and thanks for toting my clothes to Social Circle, and me back from Social Circle on this coming Sunday.
On A Positive Note
One benefit of not riding last night was that I got home at least a half-hour earlier than I would have otherwise. With this time I managed to sort out the items in my “Needs Action” folder (don’t ask), a task I’ve been putting off for over a month. I’m glad to say that I hadn’t missed any bill payments (though I was a little concerned that I forgot to pay my auto insurance when I saw the bill in the folder), and I also managed to put a lot of things in order. No shame, no shame, no shame on me!
Have a great Thursday, yes it’s Thursday already, friends!
Barb, if you have an requests for food tonight please put it into a comment or shoot me a text message.
