Profile In Courage

Milestone time. I know, I know… this blog has become a bit redundant of late. If it’s not about my weight loss or a walk around the neighborhood, than it’s about whatever I’ve dug up outta the backyard. Well tough.

Instead it sat in the drawer languishing with my other bike garb that I hadn’t dared wear since the end of 2003.

Now I tried it on a few weeks ago and was very close to fitting into it then. With a few more pounds lost in the interim, I decided to don her one mo’ time. The results astounded me enough to damn the flashbulb and take a dang picture in it… I told you it was blindingly yellow.

Now tell me that it doesn’t look like it was tailor-made!
