My name is fatmarc vanderbacon. I lost my wedding ring this weekend. Ouch. In the scope of an otherwise incredibly awesome weekend, I lost my wedding ring. I'll admit that put me into my own sort of fit and personally inflicted havoc. But, at the end of the day, I'll say that it was all for a good cause. Now the good news is this: I have a friend named Benny da Jewlar. Benny is da Jewlar for cyclist everywhere,
and Benny was able to help me out with a new ring. Thank you sir. BTW even if you aren't a cyclist, I would highly recommend Benny as a jewelry resource.
"How the hell did you lose your wedding ring?" I'll get there...
Thanksgiving morning started out with a spectacular ride with these gentlemen. A couple of nice hours over at fairhill making a special spot in my belly for a lot of food later.
While Diane can't ride a bike yet, Blake, Consorto, and Kita also rode out of our place and we hung out for a bit and shared things we were thankful for... and few Fat Tire Ale's courtesy of Mr. Sean Mealy!
"Great, now how the hell did you lose your wedding ring?"
Okay, on Friday Henry's Bikes was holding a CF foundation fundraiser. Essentially they were going to have people riding trainers in front of the shop for 24hrs. I had signed up to ride from 4:30pm-6:00pm. In the course of rushing there, and trying to find socks, and.. well I lost it. I scoured the Henry's Parking lot. I scoured my car. I scoured my sock drawer. It's gone. I'm quite sure an evil little gnome took my ring into some odd black hole. bummer
Good news is that the CF Foundation Raised just over $7000!
And frankly, I think the event could do more. Could get more spinners! We could do $10k next year. I look forward to being a part of this again next year!
That cute guy in the back with hi-vis booties and no wedding ring- yeah that's me...
So at the end of the day, I got to be apart of a pretty amazing event, got to see lots of friends, and have a really wonderful long weekend...
As Kelly Cline said, "Maybe Christmas doesn't come from a store, Maybe Christmas perhaps means a little bit more. Happy Black Friday"
