ladies and gentlemen, at long last, the haiku bike shop...(14 posts)

it's that little door on the left. after months on the market, we've sold our house. penance paid, living with my in-laws for a few weeks (the mother-in-law-hairshirt) complete, we've found a (new) house, closing soon. two cars and a handful of bikes...cars on the right. :-)

we've also splurged on a new fridge, so the old one goes to the haiku bike shop to host scores of red, white and blue cans of PBR and tupperware pitchers of lime gatorade. when it passes on to appliance purgatory, i might replace it with an old-type vending machine, so i can pay myself back for cheap beer, one PBR at a time.

and...through some strange twist of fate, the location of this beauty lies on the edge of my nightly ride route. ahhh, sweet coincidence. sweet! dude! sweet! dude! sweeeet!

Hello, welcome to my garage... Is there a door for people somewhere nearby? ;-)

you've got your priorities right, the double door garage is for the bikes, the single for the wife's car & the window upstairs is for the entire living area. Love it!

All kidding aside, congrats & best of luck.

that's all she wrote for the year. i'm being encouraged to ride a 12-hour mtb race in october, but besides that, it's all about keeping base miles 'til it's time to ride those "old guys who get fat in winter" off my wheel in march '02.
Lets get back to your shameful lack of yard art.MB1

How about some nice plastic flowers and little bunnies kissing. Don't forget to put christmas lights up and never take them down.

must have been a 12x3 banner. they put it in the front of the house, hung from the front of their porch, plus blinking christmas lights and other fun stuff, for a party. they left all that stuff hanging there for several years. this was a fairly nice part of town, too. gotta love memphis. there are several fifteen-foot elvis statues downtown.

we haven't moved in yet, it'll be just another week and a half. we do, however, have a full supply of yard art. hate to disappoint, but most of it is ornamental metal sculpture. our "collection" is only partly comprised of old bicycles and plastic sunflowers (and roadrunners!).

You were civil for about a month there. You should go for a personal best.

Sorry - the attack on America got me back to my grumpy self. I'm so glad to see a pic of his house on Road Bike review.
