bk's Creative Writing Kiosk & Mis-Matched Screw Bin: "Dinosaur Steak"

Change can be subtle or

Change may be great

Change is why I can't eat

a Dinosaur Steak

Moments imperceptible

or Nail to the Door

A rock in a river

Worn down by the war

A reef's up on Everest

With one loud voice, or

Perhaps Dillinger's Biograph

Movie Night choice?

The wheel on the Auto-car

or the Velocipede

A heart the motor

or fossil-fuel grease?

bk's Creative Writing Kiosk & Mis-Matched Screw Bin: "Maybe Ride Bikes With You"

I don't really care what the cranks are made of

I don't mind the enormous tattoo

I never mentioned the mustache

I thought "rock it!" and

Maybe Ride Bikes with you

I just learned what's a 'fixe'

Hope you can handle an 8MPH cruise

A good bike is any, to

Maybe take a Roll with you!

Champagne is cheaper than gas

Why pay a health club for two?

It feels truer than traffic, to

Many Lakes... Trash Talk: The Results are in!!!

After a humiliating fumble and classic, not-to-be-soon-forgotten 500-point robbery just after the starting gun, bk managed to regroup and retain his championship status as Bag Footsie Champ with a dazzling 2000 points and the final, epic, off-trail snare of a full-size garbage bag!!! What a way to blast-off the 2012 Spring Bag Footsie season!

Biking Enviro-Game: Bag Footsie (reprised from the "Many Lakes..." Trail Guide)

Every litter-bit helps! We have all seen the urban tumbleweed: The lost and forlorn shopping bag! E-Gads! Well, beloved, Here is a fun way to battle them!

Without stopping your bike, using your foot, try to snare an errant, wind-swept shopping bag! Grab it, stow it and properly recycle/re-use it. Careful! Extra points for style!
