June 2012

In some alternate, parallel dimension out there, June 2012 is the month I died. Mishap after mishap kept happening to me.

Besides ending up in the hospital briefly at the beginning of the month, I kept trying to overdo it on the bicycle during too hot weather. I'd end up miles from home sucking down salt and liquids and thinking 'Ooops, should probably be more careful' That was put to an end when I got in a minor car-bicycle accident a few days ago. It was very minor but the impact was enough to slightly bend my front wheel, which makes the bicycle difficult to ride. I could walk and bus around town but it's just too boring. So, I'll replace the bicycle with a cheap one from Walmart/Target. I would support REI or local bike shops but I just don't have that kind of cash at the moment.

Sorry about your bad luck! Bet you're glad June's over! I truly hope you're alright!

Is the rest of your bike still okay? Do you like your bike? If so, maybe you just need to replace the bent wheel. You might find one cheap on eBay.

Ferd - Haha, yeah, I'm fine. The rest of the bike is still okay. If I can find a wheel on Craigslist or somewhere, I'll probably buy it just to have that bicycle as a backup.

Wow, surely July will be better! And happy 4th of July tomorrow. :)

Patty - Happy 4th of July to you too! :) Although, aren't you Canadian? This is probably the month where American bloggers are really, really annoying to bloggers from other countries. lol

Yup. :) I'm Canadian. We had Canada Day on July 1. But Canadians always wish Americans a happy 4th of July. ;) Just out of politeness. LOL
