November Rain

I'm back on my bike after successfully dislocating my knee while dancing at a wedding reception. I turned, knee popped out of joint, back into joint, lost balance, hit the floor spread-eagle on my back, in my fancy red bridesmaid's dress no less. Classy as always...

This is day three of 70 + degrees. It's November 5th. Not sure what's going on, but I'll take it! Unless of course this is a result of global warming...which is one of the things I'm trying to improve by bicycling...hrmmm.

All of that behind me, my knee has mended to 95% and all is well. We'll see if I can managed to emerge unscathed from wedding and wedding party number two in the coming weeks.

I don't think I mentioned that I purchased an additional bicycle? It is a 1970's Schwinn Continental, with a "Root beer" paint job. I was so excited to have friction shifting for the hills along my commute. I still love and ride my three speed Raleigh Coasting, but the auto-shifting and three speeds wasn't doing my knees any favors.

I also purchased a little knogg frog headlight in pink. I adore it, and it well matches my Starbright model Nutcase helmet.

Don't have any photos of the bicycle as of yet, but will try to get some posted soon.
