Today is George Washington’s birthday. We’d rather talk about Abraham Lincoln. Our greatest president. Think about that for a second, and, the enormous weight on his shoulders when he wrote these fascinating words.

Back in Michigan.

Our first leg, the “Three Men and A Gary” section of of our Winter tour, was a smashing success. Not only did we make new friends, outsmart any scoundrels that crossed our paths, rescue a wealth of treasures, enjoy rib-stickin’ hearty meals, fended off frisky lot lizards, let the wind chart our course, conduct fair business practices from the road, and, make good time, well, we did it without one flake of snow messing with us. Gigantically amazed by that, considering the time of year.

The next phase of the tour is tentatively titled, “Time To Do Some Work For A Change, For Our Benevolent Clients.” Something along those lines.

We’ve got our mobile command unit up and running in mom and dad’s living room, and are organizing our job list and will commence “slaying projects” very, very soon. Really.

No one tells us nothing: I’ve met Bryan from Coudal Partners a number of times when passing through, but just found out he’s the fella behind the impressive, revving 2StrokeBuzz outta Chicago.

I don’t know a damn thing about scooters, nor do I sanction their drunken rallies and foul language, but I do know this much: This site is real good and covers all the good stuff in those gangs.PJ back ‘em, so, we have to go with family on this one.

Yep, I back Bryan and 2SB 110%. Good people.

Great updates from the road, I know how hard it is to stay on top of it. I appreciate every goddamn word and every photo. Take ‘er easy as you enjoy the comforts of home and give your parents a hug for me. Solid Gold, the whole damn family.

I wear my green Abe shirt every President’s Day.
Friend of a friend makes these great shirts, although I think they’re only available in girl cut.


Loved your Motel Gary story.

Damn, I just changed 2strokebuzz to orange and black in tribute to my PJ-Designed Genuine Blur:


and I was thinking “where have I seen orange and black and grey helvetica before?” Now I remember, duh.

Also, why does helvetica look like aĆŸ in Safari? (Don’t answer that, I know why, I’m just whinging)
