Ride on, baby

Spent yesterday out with a friend, a pleasant interlude and not too expensive! By which I mean we have a bad habit of going to favourite emporia, when I visit her it is generally Borders, when she comes to me it is Variegations. I am slowly building up a collection of stuff from there and elsewhere to get all artsy-fartsy with. ATCs are gradually impinging on my consciousness - actually, I came home inspired yesterday and can see all sorts of ways I could incorporate handspun yarn, so......

But (hah!) - that is not what I wanted to say. Had the best belly laugh for ages. I was driving home, and paying attention to the road as I was, I saw the cyclist as part of the bigger picture. Moving past him, I didn't see the finer detail.

My friend did.

He had sponsorship. One presumes. He had the requisite slogan emblazoned on his lycra.

In large letters across his backside - and apparently, that meant right on target, if you get my drift - were the words......

Liquid gas.

Good Lord! That shop would put me in the poorhouse. I haven't found one quite so diverse here - it's either fiber or paper and never the twain shall meet. If you take up ATCs, perhaps we could do a swap?
