bike wheel

Thursday at lunch I drove my mountain bicycle to Don Johle's Bike World in Garland. My bicycle needed new tires and inner tubes. I had tried to take it to Performance Bicycle in Plano, only to find a two-week service wait to get a 20-minute tire change done. But the bike shop in Garland was able to get my bicycle done in an hour. I picked it up after work. I thought how there is something very Plano in a long-wait for bicycle repairs, and something very Garland about instant service. Garland's store is less posh  but much quicker.

Last night I developed a cough and some leg cramping. I seem a bit better today. I hope I am not getting really sick.

I had another phone call with my young niece, whom my wife is picking up at the airport today. They are going to a tea room called Chocolate Angel for lunch, We three plan a fun weekend.
