New Kit Day!
17 & 18 January 2017

Confession: I didn’t ride on Tuesday. I just received my beautiful new Babici jersey delivery and posed in front of the mirror. 😆 Okay, I took Mitzy for a walk, so I wasn’t a complete sloth.

Classy touches make opening a parcel tangibly more pleasurable. The tax receipt (don’t ask lol!) is on the back of the sepia photo and the card is a nice touch. As an aside, the Kyoto jersey is a race fit so I instantly regretted the pastry for lunch! 😂 Some Facebook friends - a minority I’m glad to say - write some weird comments. “Is that for cycling or flower arranging?” (Both.) “Is it a corset?” (Sadly no, I’m sucking in my tummy all by myself.)

Mitzy wishes she could lift weights too. Instead she had to make do with offering support this afternoon and hugging me when I did floor work. Tonight’s Dinner Twist (a fortnightly fresh food delivery with recipe booklet) creation was delish - Sicilian chicken and lots of veges! Also, I bought My Boy the Thug Kitchen cookbook - and one for me heehee - but I didn’t realise it was vegetarian! (Distracted by the fruity language.) The recipes are good and one can always replace chick peas and lentils with meat, chicken & fish! (Gas-inducing legumes are off-menu for me with my UC and FODMAP intolerances - I could never be vegan.)

Hey I had a question about your trucks lift kit. I want to do something similar to mine but I don't know what size of tire/rims I would need to get. Do you have any suggestions or advice? Thanks!

My truck is -almost- stock suspension-wise actually, since it is a torsion bar front suspension. I have cranked the keys to give it 1.75″ lift to clear the 33″ tires. My tires are 33 x 12.5 x 15.

The rear is all changed up. It came with factory 2″ blocks which is adequate for 33″ tires. However my truck has the lift blocks removed for improved ride off-road, and has a 2″ lift shackle as well as a 1.5″ add-a-leaf.

Most stock torsion bar suspension Rangers should fit up to 32″ tires no problem.

Count Olaf x Kit Snicket

“You’re hurt,” Klaus said.

“I’ve been hurt before,” Count Olaf said, and he staggered down the slope and waded into the waters of the flooded coastal shelf. In one smooth gesture he lifted Kit from the raft and carried her onto the shores of the island. The distraught woman’s eyes were closed, and as the Baudelaires hurried down to her they were not sure she was alive until Olaf laid her carefully down on the white sands of the beach, and the children saw her chest heaving with breath. The villain stared at Kit for one long moment, and then he leaned down and did a strange thing. As the Baudelaire orphans looked on, Count Olaf gave Kit Snicket a gentle kiss on her trembling mouth.

“Yuck,” said Sunny, as Kit’s eyes fluttered open.

“I told you,” Count Olaf said weakly. “I told you I’d do that one last time.”
