That's the way that it goes


Email exchange with Moz, 2003

Me with Very, 2003

Very with dog, 2020

do dah, do dah, do dah,

That's the way that it goes,

Everybodies making little baby clothes.

So we are still in lockdown in Melbourne, and although we are now allowed to travel an entire 25k from home now, I have still not been much further than the previous limit of 5k for several months now,  and am managing to cope.  My son and his wife are expecting a baby, and last Sunday, some of my Mum's home made baby supplies were here, so I rang Ewan first and asked if it was ok to drop them off, and it was. So of course as I ride I'm singing Gillian Welch and David Rawlings song, "That's the way that it goes"

So that was last Sunday's exercise, a trip to Parkville, dropping off supplies, shopping on the way home, pick up more supplies.

And I met my friend Very in Aldi with his dog.  He had wanted to go to New Zealand for a holiday, mainly to let his faithful companion dog run around a lot and hunt possums as a thank you present to the dog.  And to let the dog be a dog.

 But he couldn't go because of Coronavirus lockdowns, and was a bit down about that. Anyway, as you can see from the photos, not much has changed since 2003, Very wears crazy clothes, I ride crazy bicycles. That's the deal.

A helmet for Anthony

Anthony checks out and

approves his new helmet.

Woohoo, this is what I got as a trade-in, a daggy old Scott Aspen helmet.

The tyres

A while ago I started thinking about giving my homeless friend Anthony one of my mirror helmets, as we had been discussing mine, and he quite liked it. A tipping point came a few weeks ago when my son and daughter in-law brought over a lot of their old bike junk - mainly 29" tyres  - but also a helmet. Their first child is due in a few weeks and the bike room is becoming a babies room!

Anyway, the helmet - aha, perfect for Anthony!   I searched through my piles of 3d printed stuff and found some orange mirror sides and had fun putting the visor and mirror onto the helmet. And Anthony is happy. The visor stls and design can be found here
