Biker beware, or conservation gone awry

When you are biking home from work to save gas, be mindful.

If you are slightly distracted and biking one-handed, and then you suddenly realize you need to stop at a stop sign, you may brake with only your front brakes.

On a newly tuned-up bike, front brakes can be working well. Too well. If that is the case and you brake with only the front brakes, your bike will flip.

Poor Dr. G-to-be.

So much for saving gas.

This has been a public service announcement from Watch Out for Mama.

We are now accepting contributions for our Band-Aid fund. And it is not about hunger in Africa.

My tummy hurts from laughing so hard! I'll be sure to get a special box of camo band-aids for him when you guys are up here Sat.
