Something funny........CARBON110

So, my brothers' wife recently told me she and her brother, who is a good friend of mine, went to school with Lance in Plano. After receiving this news I jumped in a high pitched tone "well, what was he like?" They replied flippantly "He used to ride his bike alot, everywhere" I said, that's like saying Charles Dickens "used to write alot" I asked repeatedly for details but alas to no avail....they could not provide any....

My business sold some stuff to a lady that was making up a present for someone to give to Lance. It was pretty cool I thought that I was suppling him. Yes it was a bicycle related item.

sold two bikes that were for Hialry and Chelsea Clinton. They were Ralegh MTB's. My good buddy built them and I happened to be there when they were picked up. I helped the sceret service guy load them in a big white Suburban with dark tinted windows. There was a big diamond plate toolbox just behind the drivers seat. I asked what was in it and the agent just smiled and thanked me for the help.

They could only afford Raleighs? Did they ever bring them back for service?

you know, the one with the bee-hive hairdo ... Athens, GA

I went to college while REM and B-52s were playing locally but never heard of them until later. Was studying too much, I guess.

He was pretty funny back then.
I was too, but pursued playing the Cello rather than acting.

Less profitable, but I bet I have lower stress!
