Babies and Bicycles...

On Friday, June 10th, Zenora Dawn Keyes came into this world at 9 pounds 1 ounce. She is an incredibly cute baby girl, and as of Sunday night she is at home with her loving parents. Jen and I went to see her, Krystal, and Brandon at St. Mary's on Sunday. We brought Krystal some vegetarian spring rolls from Mai Lee. It was good to see Krystal and Brandon's ordeal over with and the beautiful end result of the last nine months. She really is cuter than the average baby, although they say that when a baby is born by c-section they usually look cuter as the head isn't all misformed. Huh.

I spent most of the weekend (including Monday, which I took off from work) fixing an old women's bike for Krystal. It's going to be awesome, with metallic blue as the primary color and cream as the secondary color. This is the second classic bike I've fixed for Krystal, though it will be the first I actually will give her. I got the scheme from a bike pictured from the Ann Arbor Classic Bicycle Show. There is a link to them on the right under the Bicycle Links page.

Interesting point about women's bikes - the reason that the frame slopes downward is that in the 1800's women wore dresses everywhere and it was "inappropriate" to have there skirts all hiked up. once again: Huh. By the way, here's a message to the Banana Bicycle Brigade: Boas and Bells do not a Bicycle make. But to each their own...

Michael Jackson is a free manboy. I don't really have a problem with that, but who the hell are those people hanging out in front of the courthouse everyday... everyone saw the lady releasing doves, but what really freaks me out are the people screaming and crying for him... one guy in a suit with his hands in the air Nixon-style, weeping to the heavens. Who the hell are these people?! But message received: If you are going to murder your wife, drive drunk, shoplift, break into homes, run from the cops, or molest kids, it helps to be famous first.

Jen's best friend Laura had a birthday yesterday. She was also diagnosed with skin cancer last week. Here's hoping for the best for Laura...

My father Tuck turned sixty-four on Saturday, and he is still a good-natured hard ass. Love ya, Pop!

And the CARDINALS beat the Yankees two out of three...
