Monday 28 February 2011


Many many years ago when I was a young lad in my mid teens I fell in love..!
Well, it might just have been a huge crush, but it certainly felt like love at the time. Her name was Carol and I met her at a youth club.
I didn't have much confidence back then and it took me months to ask her out. Finally I managed to overcome all my fears of rejection and I asked her out to the cinema. She actually said YES. I was over the moon and couldn't wait for the seven day's to pass before the evening that we had set for our 'date'.
Then about 48hrs before we were to go out -  Catastrophe!!!  I caught a cold. Not just any old cold - this was a major man flu type cold - you know - the sort of cold that women just never get.
I was devastated. I had to cancel my evening of pure love at the cinema with the gorgeous Carol.
We did manage to re-arrange our evening of pleasure, but I have never forgotten that feeling of total disappointment at having to cancel the date that I had looked forward to for so long.

Well, it has happened again..!!
I had arranged a date with the luscious Tiffany - she has an Italian background you know..! She is as smooth as silk and just running my fingers over her beautiful shape is pure pleasure. There is something mildly exotic about her and any red blooded male would feel the same about her as I do.
We only met last June and since that time I have tried to spend as much time as possible in her company.
This has not been easy, what with all the medical treatment that I have had over the months. But I have spent quite a bit of time with her, although this all stopped at the beginning of February when I had my eye operation.
We had made a 'date' to go out together today and tomorrow.  You can imagine how upset I was when just after seeing the consultant at the hospital last week I contracted some kind of bronchial cold. I had to cancel my date with Tiffany.
All those memories of the cancelled date with the gorgeous Carol came flooding back.
Instead of the exotic company of the luscious Tiffany, my new constant companions are shown in the photo above. Lets face it they don't really match up to an absolute beauty of Italian extraction like Tiffany.
And what of Tiffany? Well she will wait for me...! We haven't actually made another date yet, but I have bought her a rather special present which hopefully she will wear when we do manage to go out together.

I will tell you about this special present  in a later posting. In the meantime, Tiffany (the Tifosi) has to wait with my other bikes until I shake off this pesky bronchial cold thing....!

I rode forty miles yesterday - it shattered me. Mind you it was my first proper ride in nine months and I was out with Andy Cook (andcookcycling.com) who runs cycle tours to Majorca and all that sort of serious stuff - serves me right!

I sure she misses you too...Get better soon.

Look at the bright side. Tiffany might well have exploded your eyeballs, whereas the delay will increase your odds of long-term appreciation of her italianate beauty.

Your bikes will wait patiently for you. You will rock and ride soon. Hang in there mate.

Always tough after a break from cycling whoever you are riding with.

Thanks for the kind words.

Very wise words Steve....very wise words.

Thanks for that Davey -I can't wait to get back on the bikes - just seems to be delay after delay though.

It's hard to accept especially with the deja-vu thing but there seems to be similarities with your bike and your romance. I'm sure you are looking forward to good times with the bike. If it is reliable, secure and a good model, it'll be worth getting your hands on it when the time comes!!

My buddy, it seems that luck has favored him. I hope soon to devote time to his girlfriend.
See you soon.

I am afraid that I will have similar companion as you do, though I won't have any plans for dating...
My throat is burning lately. Take care.

I so enjoyed this story about your bikes....I know it is most difficult when sick to be away from something that is a passion in life. I hope your immune system gets stronger and you will enjoy the landscape soon! ~ Linda

Just passed by your blog..I didn't realise it was the norm to name your bike! My husband has his 'Edith' (and I forget the name of his other 3 bikes!) I always thought it was just his funny ways...!

You were probably right in the first place - it IS just his funny ways - thing is though, most men seem to have funny way's...that's what my wife tells me..!!

Six weeks off.

 The visit to see the Consultant went quite well really ...   My ' numbers' have started to creep up again so I am going to be given...
