Pedicab Man wonders:
1. Can you get ticketed for running a stop sign if your going the wrong way on a one way street?
2. Why don't the police lock Pedicab Man up and throw away the key for all the traffic laws he breaks in one hour not to mention a day?
Pedicab Man Considers the facts:
1. Downtown you have the Charleston City Police, North Charleston Police, Port Authority Police, MUSC college police, College of Charleston fat cops, Citadel Rent-a-Cop, US Federal Marshals, Charleston County Sheriffs, state police, SLED Agents and a few thousand private dicks hired by the hotels. Not to mention the odd Folly Beach, Mt. Pleasant, Sullivan's Island cop, FBI Agent, Coast Guard cop who might wander into town for coffee.
2. Bureaucrat Laws say each of these entities has to have a Chief-What-in-Charge, several chiefs for evening and night shifts, admin chiefs, HR chiefs, maintenance chiefs, communication chiefs, weekend chiefs, holiday chiefs, dispatch chiefs, union representative chief and on and on.
Pedicab Man finds the answers:
1. To many chiefs not enough money left for Indians.
2. We now know why the governor has to use the National Guard if there is any real problems.
Pedicab Man demands action:
There is one pedicab cop who works part time in Charleston. We need to make the jerk Chief of Pedicab Cops and get his ass off the streets so Pedicab Man doesn't get another ticket this year.

Stupid is as stupid does.
Fred told his wife she was to stupid to drive a vacuum cleaner.............Hmmmmmm.
Wonder if Fred will be able to smell the dog pee when he rescues them off the street?

Lulu did it.
A handy thing to have with a baby is a room monitor which allows you to wander around the house and still keep tabs on the little one. Jennifer told me hers didn't work.
"That it doesn't work."
"Take it back to the store," I said.
"And tell them what?" she asked.
"Right, this thing doesn't work because....... my dog snores so loud you can't hear anything else!"
"That could be a problem," I said.

Antiwar be careful what you ask for.
The antiwar signs that the 10 demonstrators carried downtown on Saturday got me thinking.
: they want that ultra
for President?Stop the War
: why fight with people who want to control our religion, put women in their place, exterminate all the Jews and nuke New York? Didn't these people killed 3,000 people on 9-11 or was that a Jewish conspiracy?Bring my son home from Iraq
: it's a volunteer army so parents
should decide when their children
come home? Now all we have to decide is to either ban the military or start up the draft.
Bottomline: You should pick your side based on the facts which are: This is a religious war between Musliums and Jews. As long as we support Israel we'll be in the middle of it.

Nick's Joke: What is the difference between an Irish funeral and a Irish wedding?
There is one less drunk at the funeral.

New bike just ordered
Ordered a bike, like this one, from Bike Friday. Mine will have triple crank, finders, folding rear rack and it's own suitcase for traveling. Uncle Bill says we're riding from Missoula, MT to Minneapolis, a distance of 1,500 miles, this summer and I plan to take this bike which will screw the airlines out a $150.00 bike box charge. In my warped biker mine this saving justifies the $2.8 k price tag.

Big shoes to fill..

I just sold this bike and shipped it to
New Jersey. Took the three shipping boxes directly to the UPS terminal and they charged me $85 bucks. Several years ago we shipped Patty's recumbent bike from Charleston to Boston in two boxes which weighed less and used the UPS retail store which charged $135 dollars.
Moral: use UPS terminal not the retail store.

Pedicab Man took these two ladies for one hour ride. I did 10 minutes of riding and 50 minutes sitting around while they shopped. I was having a hard time deciding if I should charge the $45 per hour bargain rate or the $60 per hour full rate until I saw their new, very white, stretch limo.
I took this picture because their camera was too big to carry shopping.

These guys never get nervous and jerky. If the driver were to deviates from the tour route they would just stop and stand there until the driver got it right.
Labels: Always know where you are in relationship to the food sourse.
Question: Which person in this photo is a turon and where does she live in Ohio?
Miss this one and go straight to jail, do not stop at go, do not collect $200 dollars. On second thought how about some ocean front property in Tennessee.

Nice fish dinner, couple glasses of wine and it's time to watch a little basketball.
But then it starts as she says, "What's a girl got to do to get a little dessert? Then maybe later we can knock over some trash cans? We can have a real party big boy. Naturally, I'll need to be carried if we move over 30 feet and no bitching about your poor back"

Pedicab chain gang gets a double duh rating.....
Uncle Bill trained me keep the roads free of all lost coins. One time I got off the bike to pick up coins 14 times in a 1/2 miles distance after someone had thrown out a hand full of change [bad luck to leave a penny on the ground you know]. This is also a way to get bungee cords, spare screws, nails, wire ties etc.
Imagine my surprise when I found my own USA Running cap while riding the James Island Connector yesterday. It has been AWOL for several weeks.

Guitar Man update...
Version 3.2 of Guitar Man's Hoover Craft. Goals this month: 1. see if it will go on the bus [must fit on bus so Guitar Man can go south next winter] 2. identify gasoline blower to run hoover fan [we've final talked Guitar Man out of his solar power idea] 3. attach platform on rear [Guitar Man can use like a skate board until another power source is identified, see item 2.].
Anchors holds Miami Star and she suvived the 45 mph wind gusts. Anyone out there want to buy a boat? CHEAP............

Anyone know the name of these flowers? Tourons asking Pedicab Man who has drawn a blank.
Back in the saddle again..
First wedding of 2007 for pedicab Man. We were charging the fare by the minute. Toward the end of the ride I need a couple more minutes to round up to a half hour. Told them we had to slow down so that the cans dragging behind us wouldn't scare the mules pulling a wagon of tourons in the Market.
Auburn's right tackle 2027.
