Flashback Bonus

Today I will be posting two Flashbacks.  The first one is a final piece on my 2 years in graduate school in Denver.  The second is a 2 part post I wrote in June of 2010 for the blog after a ride to Peoria and other places.  I felt the Denver piece was an inappropriate farewell for the 2 weeks I'll be gone from the blog.  I scoured the site and found a more upbeat entry that I hope keeps you all in good fettle till I return.  God.  I must be getting old, I used the word fettle.  I just looked it up and I used it appropriately.  Whew.  Fettle is a word I may have used in Denver, but would probably not use on a day long bike ride with friends.

The cloud formations confirmed the cockpit announcement that there was some foul weather ahead.  I tried to get some lightening in the clouds but never saw any.  The ride was probably as bumpy as I've ex…
