My bike Blue was looking a little, well, blue so I dropped him off for a tune-up this morning.
Poor guy needed it, too. Not only was the attachment plate that connects the pedal to the bike (or what ever it’s called) loose, but we were able to figure out why I’ve popped 4 rear tire tubes in the last month. This whole time I figured it was just the fact that I was leaving my bike in my hot car, when in reality the inside strip of felt had warped and exposed the tire rivets to the tube. It took the guy less than 2 minutes to replace the felt and change the tube – problem solved!
Let this serve as a reminder to anyone who is due for a tune-up – don’t delay! Take the bike in, you’ll be so happy you did! Plus, Blue always comes back so shiny when it’s done. Almost like bringing a dog to the groomers. 😉
I had a few more errands to run today, so when lunch time rolled around, I stopped in at Fresh Market and just ate in my car.
They had a smokey ham, fig, and gruyere cheese panini on special. It was delicious, but a little buttery for my taste. However, that wouldn’t stop me from ordering it again. 😉
I also had a red plum and a few veggie chips.
I may or may not have sat in my car to eat lunch so I could finish listening to Catching Fire. Holy cannoli! What an ending! I’m not sure I can download the third book fast enough!!! 😉
Question: I volunteered to bring the dessert for a Mexican fiesta tonight. What should I make?!
