    Maybe you should lie on the side of the road less often.

    Also, stop clutching your chest all the time.

    I don't stop, I slow down, assess the situation as best I can, and ask if people have everything they need (as opposed to asking if they're okay, which could be viewed as presupposing). I do it regardless of age, gender, race, etc. It's a simple courtesy, that's all.

    Not all problems are readily visible, and I'm not psychic. I don't *know* that you don't have a mechanical. I don't *know* that you aren't in distress. I don't *know* that you aren't lost. I don't *know* that you're just taking a breather.

    Two different people asked if I had crashed. One dude in a car swerved off the road and onto the shoulder - yelled out the window "SIR ARE YOU OKAY??" At that moment I had my bike up and was putting by gloves back on. I shook my head, hopped on my bike, and took off.

    I dont know. With enough people asking me if I am okay and whether I have crashed..... maybe I should check into a hospital. I mean, maybe Bokonon is trying to tell me something.
    OK, I agree that's excessive.

    Default My puppy was stolen by my Dear Daughter already.......

    Snuggle time. To put the 11 week old "Puppy" into perspective the guy in the background is a Big 85 pound Boxer.

    Based on my experience in getting a puppy I say everyone needs to ask Bob "R U OK?

    Sunny afternoon, hammock, calm breeze, dappled light, good book and a pup. Life is good for the Dear Daughter and the pup. (who opened her eyes just as I took the shot.) Stella put her front feet in the hammock and spent 30 seconds quietly trying to work out how to get the rest of herself in. Dear Daughter hauled her up and in and went back to her book. Stella got her sea legs while checking the place out then plopped on her back and went to sleep. Click image for larger version.

    I used to do this too, but now I just throw CO2 cannisters at cyclists parked on the sides of the trail as I rocket past them.
