Yeah, it was really tough yesterday. I manage the complex we live in. While trying to get through a local canyon to start my work day, I found that the road was closed due to an traffic accident. I went around to get to my destination. After I was finished with work in that area, I tried to go back through that canyon but it was still closed. That usually indicates that there was a fatality involved. Then a few minutes later, I received a call from the Coroners office that they needed to talk to a neighbor in our complex as soon as possible. My heart sank. I had a feeling right away about it. I left the neighbor a message with the contact number. When I got home I could hear hysterical crying coming from their home. I checked Google images for that accident and sure enough, it was his car crushed badly. Two other vehicles were involved also. So sad.

Bike didn't get done a couple weeks ago. It's ok, haven't had any time to ride anyways. I think I would have gone mad if I didnt ride to work! Been sprinting on the way, tracking speed. I get faster every few weeks. That keeps the spirit up!
I have sunday off, so I may be able to finish the build. Dont want to spend $50 converting all the cable stops on my frame for hydro hose and full length housing, so the big Sunday project is to dremel out the stops! Hope it goes well! After that, I most likely will need to trim the brake lines, though I really am hoping to be able to get away with them running a bit long for a while. Riding season around here is right now, and by the end of May it will be too hot to ride. Plenty of time to tweak everything during off season!
Friday is my Saturday here in Qatar, but most of my Friday is Thursday for everyone back home in the states.... And Saturday is my Sunday OR Monday depending on which Saturday it is. Confused yet? I am!
