Flashbacks

There’s been silence for a few weeks, tied directly to silence in cycling.  A little rewind back to the end of June when I bought a new mountain bike, Lapierre X-Flow 312.  The story began on a wet drizzling Friday, June 28th –Lapierre’s 1st time in MTB environment.  Let’s just say I got initiated into the…

Monday Haul

After my Bike to Work Day event at Nathan Phillips Square this AM, I went to my office & was greeted with some amazing products. Last Friday, my coworker Paola shared a sale with us at G Fox Gems.  The Silicone Crystal watch in Seafoam was on sale for only $20.  It was so beautiful – I have to buy…

The KONG!!

Make way for Laser’s 1st Haul!!! Laser got a brand new toy this week…..the Kong Wobbler!!!  It’s the monster of all Kongs! It’s shaped like a normal Kong, but it’s designed to be both a toy & a food dispenser.  You unscrew it & fill it with treats or food.  Dogs knock it down using…

Not too “Shaddy”!

Today was such a gorgeous day!  En route to work, I took out my shades.  As I put it on…CRACK!  My new sunglasses from last year……..is no more! 😐 I wasn’t planning on purchasing yet another pair this year, but I guess a change of plans!!  😎 Not a terrific start to the day, but I’m still…
