Bikes, Boots, and Convertibles.
Just a few photos and comments.
Saw these in Bend Friday night. Not a pair you would normally see together. I think the common denominator was the downtown festival and beer garden around the corner. One of the bikes may be counting on the other to protect it. The question is which one?
In the top right corner of the photo below you can see my patient bride waiting for me to get my photographic jollies. Thanks for all your support, my lovely princess!
This bike was at an ART class I was teaching a while back. Made me think of you know who. Care for a little more bonding with Max?
Here are some photos to titillate the guy with a foot fetish. A guy we dearly love, of course! The first photo is one of the class instructors.
Some assorted footwear among the students. We require the ankle bone to be covered. Boots not necessarily required.
Here's what happens when a student doesn't have over the ankle footwear. They get a dose of stylish duct tape.
Reminds me of a quick story. Notice how the duct tape goes up the side of the leg like stirrups. Then the pant leg is secured to the stirrups. This keeps the pants protecting the ankles, light as the protection may be. More importantly, note how the duct tape is OUTSIDE the pants!
I once worked with a new instructor. A student needed taped. The new instructor assured me he knew about the stirrup and wrap technique. So I turned him loose. There was one small piece missing in the technique. The taping happened under the jeans. The young man who was getting taped was wearing no socks. It was a powerful reminder to me that one should trust, but verify!
Needless to say, the student had the proper footwear the next day. Go figure.
Ever have the urge to buy a convertible?
This one is for sale. Windshield wipers included at no extra charge.
Miles and smiles,
