    I'm glad you asked! Many people are under the false assumption that a pirate's favorite letter is "R." In fact, that's a common misconception and one that is easy to mistake.

    In reality, a pirate's favorite letter 'tis the sea!

    Uuuuuuummmmm...

    I think Tim has just declared a very special "Found Connection." He is now having conversations with himself on the forum.

    Tim, we promise we will visit you. Those padded cells are very comfortable.

    Usually I'd be inclined to think he's being over worked, but ... come on.

    Yup. And that thread, much like this thread, was hijacked after only several posts.

    Kind of ironic, eh?

    Bump. Just because.

    Also because I've cut back my cycling quite a bit (and my running is getting very close to zero), because of an annoying quad problem. I'm still riding somewhat (and swimming), but not as much as in May or June. In the meantime, I have been imagining that all the cyclists, pedestrians, runners, drivers and roller bladers are waving, smiling, singing together, and being polite at all times. Or maybe I'm just so tired from work that I'm dreaming or hallucinating.

    Can I add more more thing? Washington Nationals, 10-game winning streak! 1st place in the NL East! Best record in the National League!

    In the American League, Baltimore Orioles in 1st place in the East! Only a couple games from having the best record in the AL and in all of baseball.

    Will we finally see a Washington-Baltimore World Series? Anything can happen and there is still over a month left in the regular season. But both the Nats and the O's are playing great and appear to be heading for the playoffs.

    Yeah, maybe this isn't a Found Connection post so much, but I am reviving the thread. Plus there's this:

    You can look at it another way. Many other threads have positive elements and aspects, just not in the form of a Found Connections thread. Plenty of people help out others on the trails and roads, by providing directions, instructions for CaBi, use of a frame pump or patch kit, pointing out hazards in the road to other cyclists, helping out someone who is injured, etc. But those moments aren't always as memorable, especially if they happen frequently.

    For some reason, those don't fit into the idea of a Found Connection thread as naturally as the other type of encounter fits into the Missed Connections.

    As for me, I don't think I saw the Missed Connections thread until it had been around for a year or two. I also missed this thread at first, and I also missed the previous positive thread last year.
