Farm Time

I have been having a pretty sweet time hanging out in central Maryland on the Gould family farm this weekend. The races could have gone a whole lot better, but some times that is just how it is. Now I have the goats and chickens and dogs to entertain me during the day and interesting roads to go explore on my bike rides. I have been turned on to Andy Goldsworth's art by Georgias mom and now I cant walk though a pile of dead leaves or old branches without seeing it in a whole new light. I even made a pile of leaves on the porch this afternoon, but it quickly blew away. The cabin I am saying in is rad, and I am even connected to the web so I can do stuff like update my blog and relax instead of flying across the country twice a week. It has been giving me very strange dreams though. Headed down to Kentucky on thursday. It is actually called Kentucy so I dont have to add the "ucky" on to the end to make it sound like a backwoods place, like Fontucky, because it just already is. I dont really know what it means to be an "ucky" as I have never actually been to the real Kentucky, but after this trip I will have a better idea of what all the "ucky" terminology is all about and may be better able to aptly utilize the "ucky"ization of words. Time for some more crazy dreams.

Are you going to be racing in Boulder the first weekend of November?

As a representative of the cycle racing community of Kentucky, I am almost positive that the suffix, "ucky" means crazy fast.

Barry - Watch Rivers and Tides. It follows Goldsworth while he creates a number of his sculptures. Damn good.
