Not much of anything to report since my last update.
Saturday- Helped my bitch and Erica move. They only moved 600 yards from where they lived. At that this rate they might retire in Waukesha. After that fun, Russell and I took a trail ride....trails were shitty. Saturday night went to the Pettit to ice skate with a bunch of folks...The Geitners, Rick and Liz, COOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOP and Ann, Russell, Rick Amen and my crew minus L1. We got there too late to skate because I live in a house with 4 women (enough said) so we watched some club hockey and then we all went out for pizza....That was a nice time.
Sunday- Road ride to Pewaukee Lake with the local locos (already posted by the jags that went). I had to work pretty hard to hang with those clowns, but managed to GIT-R-DONE. I am pretty new to road riding (2years) and it shows, but I can see steady progress and am having more fun. Always nice to ride with Mike Geitner but he probably will not read this because he hates blogs.
Monday &Tuesday- Just work where I am completely bored out of my skull this time of year. I usually jump on the WORS board and type some stupid shit to pass the time, but lately the board has been deader than a doornail (whatever the hell that means). And speaking of "out of ones skull".. Where the hell is Wheezer??? If that dweeb is good for nothing else, at least he makes the clock go a bit faster at work. Oh...I guess he's still on there but now he's trying to be Mr. Niceguy...He was much more fun when he was a prick. I wanted to try to go find the Alterra posse out on their ride tonight and get dragged around a little bit but it was not-to-be. I wound up helping my boss move some crap to his new house and got sidetracked by a few Baccardi's..Oh well... they are just gonna have to wait till next week to kick my ass..
There you have it.....I'm out. I think my insomnia is taking a break and one of my other neurotic behaviors is about to take over...LATER

Gut Wrenching. A friend sent this photo of a horrible highway accident in Germany. The picture may be kind of hard to take for some of you. If you look closely you can see what appear to be some survivors of the accident still in the wreckage. Although the picture is quite graphic,it makes you realize how quickly our loved ones can be taken from us.My friend stayed on the scene to help and even though he performed Mouth to mouth on quite a few of them, none apparently survived. Please open with discretion. If you have a weak stomach, do not open the attachment!

WHERE'S SUG....LIKELY EXCUSE
Frozen solid to the shitter while reading the funnys.....I aint buyin' it.
Yes..It was a bit brisk out today and the trails could have been better, but SO WHAT I say. How often does an old stiff like me get the opportunity to get dragged around the trails on my SS, in sub-zero temps, by some of WORS biggest jock-straps? I almost put Ronsta back in the hurt bag with a little stunt I call WHOOOOOASHIIIIT!!!!
Mabeeeyaaatch was not there and therefore was talked about. He does not approve of bike riding in this weather...nope...not at all. I think he called me an idiot. I asked my wife if she thought I was an idiot? Apparently, I'm an idiot for alot of things, but riding my bike today is NOT one of them". Great ride great company , and possibly some pics. to be posted by some of the other clowns when they thaw out.

SCENE OF THE CRASH
Yeah, The Bubbster spent a little time on his ass this weekend. Saturday I bought it on a patch of ice underneath the snow in the parking lot at Hoyt (same type crash Tony G did today except he's about 85 lbs. lighter than me and nowhere near as graceful ), but unless someone can produce photographic evidence, I'm denying that one. Sunday's little stunt had too many witnesses to not claim full responsibility. While following too close to Russell crossing the above pictured bridge, he pulled one of his tactical race moves. I'm not sure which one 'cause he has a bunch of em'. The "dramatic pause", the "phantom bunny hop", the"silent but deadly". Whichever one got me to tap my brake and it was time to go swimmin'. So what....all in all it was a great ride, great company and I managed to get my big, wet ass home right about the time it started to get cold.

AINT LIFE GRAND
If you did not get out and enjoy this weather today, you had better have a real good reason (or two). Given the choice of a few different rides, I decided to just ride our local Menomonee river trails. Having these trails litterally within spitting distance of my driveway often makes that decision easier. Pat, Russell, DaSug and Mrs.Sug sporting matching kits, and now matching Fisher Rigs, and yours truly rode for pert ner' 3 hours. Cool pics to be posted by Tosacrosser.

The name Bubba all but requires me to own and drive a big truck, ideally a pick up truck...which I do. I figure it costs me about $1,500.00 a year more to drive it than a car. Nobody said being Bubba was going to be cheap, but when I do something, I don't do it half-assed. I once asked my wife, Julie "How much weight would I have to lose for you to stop calling me Bubba?" (it's been her nickname for me since we met 17 years ago). She just laughed and walked away.
We have 3 daughters, Jamie 20, and in college, Megan 14 and Andrea 12. Jaime and Megatron do WORS and we have our fingers crossed that Andrea will show interest, but we'll see.
Add Jack-The Hell Hound and yours truly and that rounds out the crew that calls Casa De Bubba home.
