What a day for a hat parade...

I went mountain biking for the first time in Colorado today. Just when I was getting really really good at sandy twisty trails the terrain goes and changes on me.

Common obstacles include:

Long, unending uphills only conquered by the granny gear.

Rocky, loose descents (which are not pictured here since I was too busy trying to not wipe out...)

More rocks - note that this is not a good representation of how many rocks there really are.

The occasional friendly hiker


Lots and lots of horse poop.

Overall I think I'm going to be an expert at rock gardens by the time I'm through with this state. I'm formulating a plan to move to all fifty states and get good at one technical skill per state. Then, after I am finished with this adventure, I'll kick ass at mountain biking!!

After mountain biking, I did what any good person does and spraypainted my tackboard "heirloom white" to match the walls...

He's a quick before and after!

Classy, eh?

Also, inspired by the Godard films I've been watching, and all things 1960's french I decided to chop chop chop some bangs into my hair...

Here's another before and after. .

You'll have to forgive me, I was buying 20 vintage hats in a thrift store, and laughing like a maniac.

This picture is blurry but it describes the feeling I get when I purchase vintage hats. I start creeping around laughing hysterically at my good fortune!
