    Where did it go?

    Omg...... 1969 was 50 years ago.

    What a long strange trip it's been.
    Of course I'm sure...that doesn't mean I'm right.....

    January 2, 1975 was 44 years and one day ago.

    Man, I hate coming back to work on the day after my birthday.

    I was too busy being a toddler to get the full experience of the 60s. I did have some bell bottom red, white and blue jeans when I was 4 y.o. in 1970 so I got off to a good start in that decade. 😛

    I miss people yelling out their car windows that I should get a haircut.....December 7th was the first draft lottery. That's when I knew that I could stop taking classes at the end of the semester, after 5-1/2 years...#358...

    feeling very nostalgic this week.......also, bored to death. I really want to ride but the roads are ankle deep in salt and gritty slush!
    Of course I'm sure...that doesn't mean I'm right.....

    "Bored" was a word we quickly learned not to use within earshot of our mother. And yes, that was 50 years ago. I shudder to think what may have happened with "bored to death".

    Happy New Year TOG!

    Yeah, the mere mention of the word generated a 3 page, single spaced list of things that needed to be done (that I had already been told to do)

    Oh, man, you don't know what you missed! I not only had bell-bottoms, but striped as well, with big loops so I could wear a wide belt with it. Hop on your Schwinn Sting-Ray (no helmet, of course...) and ride to school...

    Well, I'm old enough to remember when MLK was assassinated, and we closed our curtains and turned off the outside light, just in case the race riot came through out neighborhood in Boulder......Fun times, indeed!

    Race riot in Boulder?.......in 68?
    The crumbling of our wide freeways suggest a narrower vision

    Only the mob and the elite can be attracted by the momentum of totalitarianism itself. The masses have to be won by propaganda.

    Luckily I live in the deep south and I've gotten three days riding in this year.

    It was 50 here yesterday in the great white north (not so great). Rode on the rollers for 45 minutes, then went over to a friend's house with the log splitter and we busted up some HUGE chunks of wood in the mud. The roads are literally decomposing as we watch. Riding might be tough even when it really warms up!

    Any of your bikes have room for larger tires? Maybe 32 or 35mm?

    I know that my bike is a different animal, but those 42mm tires I run really soak up rough road surface. Adjusting the pressure to road conditions makes a difference in ride quality and comfort on bad roads. I'm a mite slower on my 650b\42's than on my 700
    25's but as a 65yo non racer, I can live with that.

    I figure that bringing my age into it lessened the thread drift some.

    Didn't you know enough to stuff the hem of your pant legs inside your sock?

    Wait, I thought you were much younger than that.
    I lost my phone number. Can I have yours?

    I recall being so enthralled with the first manned lunar landing, and wanting to capture the moments, that I took Polaroid pics of images on our massive 19" TV screen.

    I was a first grader. I had a friend whose family was part of the 'Dead Family' and he was @ Altamont.

    Speaking of that, Laura Whitmore has revealed she's had to have a rather nasty treatment on her ankle injury.
