There is meaning somewhere in there.
If you know me, you know I’m not exactly a girly girl. Last night Kimberlee, my girlfriend, was sitting on the couch painting her toes. Proudly I announced that I wanted my fingers and toes painted as well. My toes look brilliant, a nice tone of red. The fingers were so-so, with a metallic blue/gray.
Today during work I remembered why I don’t paint my finger nails anymore or let them grow out. I work in a bike shop and they don’t stay pretty for long.
Sure, this probably was the last thing you wanted to read about today. But it goes along the lines of what is happening this week. I’m turning over a lighter leaf, look forward to a drunken post tomorrow night.
A local cyclist, and customer, was hit on her bike not but 300 yards from where I daily commute. Since this accident happened this past weekend I’ve had strong concerns about getting back on the road. A lone rider, struck from behind. What a large fear!
A Davidson bicyclist was seriously injured on Sunday, July 4, when she was struck by an SUV while riding on Faith Road in Mount Mourne, just north of Davidson. She was in intensive care at Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte on Monday with a fractured spine and punctured lung, but was “hanging in there,” her husband says.Julie Zimmerman, an avid runner and cyclist who lives in the McConnell neighborhood, was on a solo ride around 1 p.m. Sunday when the incident occurred.
Trooper M. Childres of the N.C. Highway Patrol said she was eastbound on Faith Road, which runs between N.C. 115 and Shearers Road. A driver in a Toyota Land Cruiser that was also eastbound came up behind Ms. Zimmerman and struck her, the trooper said.
