Firstly, it was on Saturday when I was looped in on the following image from a fellow named Ryan;
“I manage a farm on San Miguel Canyon rd. All of our sows just farrowed, (farm speak for had piglets). This one is the runt, and has had to compete with 30 other piglets which is making it grow slower. It also has a slight gimp so we brought it in to see if we could get her to grow a little. I have had one of these AHTBM socks floating around for at least a year and now it is serving the purpose of keeping the piglet a little bit warmer.”

Anyway, it looks pert’ damned sharp, though I can’t help but wonder if as soon as disk brakes were introduced, Shimano scrapped this and began chasing that other carrot.
I guess I could go so far as to actually call Handsome Andrew Kemp and ask him myself, that wouldn’t do much for the online jibber jabber with the readership that I’ve grown so fond of.
Now then, as I weeded though my inbox in the wee hours of Sunday morning in an attempt at finding some goods with which to round today’s post out, I came across a few gems which I fell compelled to roll out here for another go around.
“Not sure which one is better. Check this pic I snapped at the may day parade in Portland east.
That aside, I assume the person who assembled that disaster is dead by now because of it.
