And Life Changes Again

I think I found a workable tire, it has been ordered, and I await delivery.  I still haven't taken the current rear tire and rear fork off yet because of laziness and the chance this tire may work without further modifications.

But the big change is I was offered, and accepted, a job at my Daughter's school teaching PE as a long term substitute. Only know right now it will last until Christmas break in mid December, but there is the possibility it will last to the end of the school year.  No, I'm not bored being retired, but because of my riding time out, I need something to get me out of the house and into the fresh air.  Plus it will help offset the cost of Petunia's updates.


  1. Charlie6; Yep, whistle is ready to go.

  2. Little slow here. It took me a while to figure out the whistle...

    Have fun!

  3. Nothing wrong with working for farkle funds (those bike bits get spendy)

  4. Well done ... In my board, we are no longer able to retire and still supply teach. Will have to look for employment elsewhere I guess!

  5. B.D.; You must mean whip me in shape.

    Richard; Whistles are a teachers good friend when corralling the kids out on the open fields.

    Trobairitz; Petunia is spendy for sure, but worth it in her return of pleasure.

    VStar Lady; Here teachers can go back full time for 80% of their last contract because of the teacher shortage. At the school I'm at they are still missing 5 classroom teachers and are using subs. Student behaviors are evident in these classrooms. I was surprised at the PE offer as I had turned down the opportunity to return to a classroom.

  6. Anonymous; Also known as my retirement uniform.
