Well, I'm a woman on a mission today with one very important errand to run this afternoon.

So what did you think of Dark Shadows? I was a huge fan of the original show.

I understand that Jonathan Frid died this year on April 13 at age 87.
My wife said the movie was nothing like the original show, but it was an entertaining movie. It was done as a dry comedy.

and Depp was very good.

Mission accomplished.

I may have to go see Dark Shadows. I won't expect it to be anything like the original series, so as to take it on its own merit. Besides, I like just about anything Johnny Depp is in. Talented actor.

Well.....

I guess it's a good thing I've been riding for a while and know how to "hold my line". Headed down Shotwell Rd from Clayton towards Barwell to do my intervals (and I know none of y'all know where that is ). I heard a vehicle coming behind me and tried to hug the white line...as the vehicle passed - I got yelled at (get the F off the road) and it was from someone in a !)#(*)%)&)@#&(* tractor-trailer. There probably wasn't a handlebar width between the truck & myself and not even a size 42 shoe width of pavement on the other side of the white line.

Good Lord...I thought that damn truck was going to suck me over into it (and it seemed like it took forever for the trailer to get past me) or I was headed for the ditch. SOB He made no attempt to move over any more and I think he just tried to see how F'ing close he could get to me. And, the one evening I forgot to wear my RoadID......

After my hr came back down, I got on Barwell and completed those stupid intervals. I felt great too even after riding the past 3 days.

I'm with you.

Watched the series as I was babysitting then, and gave the kids 30 min. to play while I was glued to the TV.

It was seriously campy, like the TV version of Batman was campy, and yet had some moments.

Looking forward to seeing the movie, although I'm concerned that Johnny Depp (who I loved in the "Pirates..." franchise) won't do Jonathin Frid (RIP) justice.

Guess I'll have to see it and make my own opinion.

Damn, Wolfie! Too close for comfort! Frackin' sadist..

Glad you kept the bike upright. And finished the ride. Sorry for your stress. Nobody wants to ride their bike in those conditions. Damn.

glad you are ok, WP! What a jackwagon!

I got in 12.4 this morning @ 19.3...... I forgot how difficult it is to ride all out for 12+ miles for a morning workout

Two short sales approved in two days!

We wrote those offers in January...

Crushed my last 40K TT time tonight. Five weeks ago my time was 67:00. I'm feeling both rubbery and happy.

Meetings, a training class, and a recovery ride on tomorrow's schedule. I can tolerate a lot of crapola, as long as I can ride my bike.
