Total Distance

9.25 miles on the bicycle to work.  I packed a nice work tan 2-buttoned collared shirt (is there a name for those?) to put on after my ride.  When I put it on I noticed it had slob stains all over the front.  So I put back on the flourescent neon yellow-green technical T (is there a name for that?)  Now I'll look like a clown at work all day.

Just put stains all over the rest of the tan shirt so it looks like a pattern.

Burt - I for one thought your "islands in South Dakota" comment over on Jake's blog was funny.

From Burt on Sat, Jan 26, 2013 at 09:25:18 from

You are a genius Joe.

Thanks Rob! I'll never comment on that guy's blog again. I've been in such a deep state of depression.

If it would have rained on your way to work like it was supposed to, then you might have been able to wash those stains out of your shirt while you rode to work. Next time, pack a little spray and wash with your clothes.

A pirate with some helpful laundry hints. Nice.

Always a pleasure- because when it comes to laundry stains, Quiet just won't cut the grease.

I've been toying around with the idea of having a clown come to my son's circus theme party. Are you available?

From Rhett on Tue, Jan 29, 2013 at 13:26:48 from

Burt, are you doing the full Phoenix marathon? With only 32 miles run this month, I hope not.

From Burt on Tue, Jan 29, 2013 at 14:00:50 from

Tara - I'm always available to scare children.

Rhett - I have had setback after setback, but I am signed up for the full. I've got a month to train. LOL!
