This here situation in 2022 is Un Flipping Believable.
Can you believe that in 2022 our phones were locked out for 68 hours?? Have you ever had a phone company lock your phone?? Have you ever waited for an email from a provider with your unlocking code?? If you left AT&T you have.
The fact that the Sand Diego Padres beat Smell A made my year. Every TV analyst picked Smell A over The Padres and I smile with satisfaction. The Smell A Dodgers can take their 111 Season Wins and shove it. The Padres were only a few games above .500 this season and are moving on up. Mind Is Still Blown
Friday night bike night went over the top this week. No, I actually went over the top with Friday Night Bike Night. I originally had zero intent of participating in the 90's theme and The Dude was on a river trip. Next thing I know, a curry chicken with veggies and wild rice is in motion when the text comes through. The Dude was in Loma, heading home to shower, and on for Bike Night. Oh Baby
Next thing I knew, full belly of goodness, few Sierra Nevada Torpedo IPA's , The Blue Z arrives while I am stringing lights on my beach cruiser. The Dude announces that he is going grunge. I'm pulling out the totes of wings and the costumes start fly around the tribe. Everyone is finally hip to the skip and are actually putting in some thought into their outfits and lights. Sh*T Fire
The Wolfman called during a beautiful Colorado bluebird day while I was on a bike ride. I politely declined his generous offer the first time round. He went on to explain his position and displeasure with staff and I quickly agreed to help him out. U Bet
So thankful that I stepped up to the plate!! I stirred up an absolute blast of a show!! Here is the LINK TO THE SHOW and it is a valid link for about two weeks from the 15th. This link starts with STORIES program 12:01:03, then an ad, and then at 12:04:11 I personally lit the station on fire! Ready for this?? I opened the show with Maverick's Test Run from Top Gun 2022. Danger Zone
This verity show is peppered with 1970's B-Side Classic Rock, 1920's & 30's Halloween Songs, 4 music related trivia questions, 9 LP's on the turntable, Black Sabbath Lullabies, and a few tasty hidden gems. Like a quick clip from a Jerry Seinfeld stand up monologue. After my last rant, numerous songs carried merit. I'm telling you, clink the link and have a listen because its a fantastic show. I mean, just the older Halloween tunes are worthy of a listen. Feel Good Tunes
I brought up the Top Gun opening sequence because of a caller. When I offered up the trivia questions the first time around, a random guy Jay called in to answer one of the questions correctly and then enthusiastically shared with me that he just watched the new Top Gun on the big screen last week. He went on with how was able to visualize the screen I was airing over the KAFM Airwaves. How Cool Was That
You wanna talk about a hand full the past two weeks. I am watching three medium sized dogs while their human travels around France. Hand full is an understatement but manageable. The neighbors right across the street asked me to watch their three little dog while they jet over to Fort Collins for a college tailgate festival and football game. You Got It, 6 Dogs!!!
One cool little moment in time was out back watering while listening to a high school football game. The house is butted up against Stoker Stadium and almost an unblocked straight shot to Los Colonias Amphitheater. Anyway, the high school machining band during halftime was pretty whipping to listen to. Los C has hosted a few ridiculously loud concerts as I can hear the lyrics and I am over a mile away from the place.
But hey, I am still enjoying walking dogs, fixing things around their houses, and watching MLB when available to do so. Smelling the aroma of a backyard BBQ, walking in the park under darkness, and listening to random bands as they make their way through the valley. Righteous
Moving around and out and about and all that jazz. Shared a delightful ride with Little K the other day and rode further than anticipated due to the endless banter back and forth. Plus, with these ideal Colorado temperatures, come on!!!
A majority of my rides are commuter based rides and Bike Night. Have only stretched out the legs a few times this month with longer distance rides. Time is a bugger! But as long as the car is parked, I'm cool with that. Totally Cool
Our friend Noel shot this about photo of The Dude and I during Bike Night two weeks ago. Last Friday's Theme was Tye Dye and everyone has a Tye Dye shirt hanging in their closet. What a turn out!! I don't know the official count but well over 150 riders for sure. About 80% were wearing Tye Dye and a number of folks brought along their dogs as well. Way Cool
The highlight of my week...
Above is the Brocchi's Cluster and below is the Dumbbell Nebula
Below is the Eagle Nebula
Below here is the Great Pegasus Cluster
Below is the Ring Nebula
The professor of Astronomy over a CUM hosted a viewing night there on the Quad of the main campus. The Dude & I carried over The Blue Z's telescope for an added bonus. His older telescope was the most powerful out of all the telescopes on display. My highlight for sure was simply observing 18, 19, 20 year old students navigating themselves around a telescope for the first time. A newbie student would approach, I would have them look through the spotting scope first to orient their eyes, then gander a look through the eyepiece, they ritually stated that they couldn't quite see, and then their whole body would react when they notice Saturn for the first time. Then, as that image worked through their little sponge like minds, I asked them if they could pick out that little dot of light reflecting back just below Saturn. That would be the Moon Titan of Saturn. WoW!!!!! Then we would view Jupiter and FOUR of its moons on display. LIKE WOW
