    Out of the closet (long)

    Well I suppose some of you have seen this coming for quite awhile. My wife and domestic cat are still in a state of shock blended with confusion. To top it off we just had our first son less than a year ago. Our relationship is, among other things, founded on honesty, therefore I decided to break down and tell her last night, “hey honey, ummm….ah…..I am….ahhhhh…..addicted to single speeding”. You should have seen her face. You would think I said the world was going to experience a nuclear holocaust in 5 minutes. Fast-forward 2 hours. I am lying in bed and thinking about the new SS I would like to own. Of course, there is not just one on the list, but many that I would have to eventually filter through the usual laundry list: cost, fit, color(s), materials, components, etc. So finally I reach the state of sleep where one really and truly dreams. In this dream is a Curtlo. Must be a sign of something. Don’t worry Hollywood, pink is not on my list of colors. But, I thank you Hollywood for posting the pic of your Curtlo on top of a vehicle with the sun setting in the background. Breathtaking. Now begins the sojourn of what I would have to sell to acquire said SS. There is always the “run what you brung” philosophy. I am also convinced many of these dreams are induced by the up and coming gathering in central Oregon where we pay tribute to Barbie. We have come to the point in this story where it gets scary. Right after the dream of the non-pink Curtlo, Barbie comes bombing down some wicked single-track on a pink Curtlo. Hollywood, you should check your garage this morning……..

    The first call is always the hardest. For those that exhibit symptoms like mine, there is hope. It is a fair bit of a drive from Tigard to Oregon City, in my condition. I opted for the ride in the van . See you in 25 years.

    Yep, SoulCraft is on my list (up to $1250 now, darn). If you are in Oregon we could ride share to group therapy .
