Well, Pam got me a great birthday gift. A brand new IPod that I’ve now owned for 4 days. Just long enough to figure how to deal with ITunes and play with my little IDog.
Yesterday was a beautiful sunny day so I decided to play all day. Took off on the Valkyrie planning a nice long ride to where ever I ended up. Those are usually the best rides, full of adventure & new experiences. I ran a couple of errands & wound up at Music Millennium, a really good record store for a free lunch. nice music, good food and a great assortment of used CD’s that meant my free hotdog only cost me a little over fifty bucks. Well worth it!
Then off for a nice ride with the new IPod plugged in to my bike’s killer sound system. I ended up on the road to Mt. Hood, when about 2 miles past ZigZag, right in the middle of some killer White Stripes hardest buttons the music died. I looked back & saw the IPod vanish in the distance. Did a U-turn just in time to see the 18 wheeler finish my music off.
Here’s a picture of what a 85mph drop & a 40,000 lb. truck can do to Apple’s best work. What a piece of crap, pretty flimsy construction.
Anyway, I rode on to the Timberline lodge & had a stiff drink and decided to walk to the top of the mountain. A brave resolve that the altitude and alcohol soon cured me of.
