Weather: All the way up to 16 today, but look out tomorrow.

Trail Conditions: Good to Very good.

As the season starts coming to an end we are seeing some of the best trail conditions of the year. 11n and the Hoop’s access trails are the only bad ones I have heard about.

Although our riding season is far from over the busy season will be ramping down soon. March is awesome up here, that’s when I go for a ride. Milder temps (sometimes) usually more snow and less traffic. Now don’t think I am trying to talk you into a March trip, in fact stay home because if all of you all decide to keep coming in March I will not be able to get away.

A Priest was being honored at his retirement dinner after 25 years in the parish.   A leading local politician and member of the congregation was chosen to make the presentation and to give a little speech at the dinner.   However, he was delayed, so the Priest decided to say his own few words while they waited: Thank Goodness we Catholics, have a wonderful sense of humor!   “I got my first impression of the parish from the first confession I heard here. I thought I had been assigned to a  terrible place. The very first person who entered my confessional told me he had stolen a television set and, when questioned by the police, was able to lie his way out of it. He had stolen money from his parents; embezzled from his  employer; had an affair with his boss’s wife; had sex with his boss’s 17 year old daughter on numerous occasions, taken illegal drugs; had several homosexual affairs; was arrested several times for public nudity and gave VD to his sister.   I was appalled that one person could do so many awful  things. But as the days went on, I learned that my people were not all like that and I had, indeed, come to a fine parish full of good and loving people.”   

Just as the Priest finished his talk, the politician arrived full of apologies at being late. He immediately began to make the presentation and gave his talk: “I’ll never forget the first day our parish Priest arrived,” said the politician. “In fact, I had the honor of being the first person to go to him for confession.”   

Moral of the Story: Never, Never, Never Be Late
