A little later (yes, I'm tardy in writing this) Bobskoot, the sandal wearing photographer, Master of Eggs Benedict, and proprietor extraordinaire at Riding the Wet Coast blog, arranged another t-shirt for me, this time a select event model from the vintage Cannonball Run coast-to-coast ride for pre-1930 bikes. Bob knew I wasn't much given to the flaming-skeletons-riding-a-chopper motif and selected something properly tasteful and vintage looking for me. Bob's a classy guy. He wrote "I have to make sure you have decent clothes to wear, can't have you riding without some form of cotton protection."
As Bob lives in the exotic and frozen land of British Columbia, Canada, and to make mailing easier since the shirt started life in the USA anyway, he passed the shirt off to Brad at Troubadour on a Tiger blog for mailing to me. In due course the shirt arrived and now graces my manly and newly svelte physique. No, you can't see a picture of me naked but I have lost weight.
One of the very best parts of blogging is the people we connect with through the blogs. I hope one day I get a chance to meet Bob and Brad in person.
Thank you Bob and Brad. You guys are the best.
