Full Moon Fiasco 66

Can you believe it is May?

When: Wed, May 10th @ 8pm
Where: Eichardt's
Theme: National Lost Sock Memorial Day

Yup, there really is such a day.  Ever wonder what happens to those socks from the hamper, to the washer, to the drier and out?  I certainly do.  I like socks.  I have lots.  And I have lost many a good sock mates to the phenomenon.  I don't throw them away.  I always keep them in hopes that their mate will turn up one day.  Amazing, I have had times where a few wash loads later, miraculously, a lost sock will turn up.  But I often wonder, when has the waiting gone long enough?  When should the remaining sock be put to rest?

Enter National Lost Sock Memorial Day, a day to honor those socks that have disappeared.  A day to bring closure to the mysterious loss.

We here at FBC Sandpoint HQ ask that you wear your single left over socks for the last time.  We will have a moment of silence for these lone socks sometime during the evening.  When you return home after the ride, you will not hold on to these socks looking for their mate any longer.  You will burn them, or better yet, re-purpose them as a dust cloth, or a place to dry your garlic, or a sock monkey, or a place to keep your marbles...the possibilities are endless.

As a fleeting thought, are you aware that your feet have about 250,000 sweat glands that are capable of producing about 1 cup of sweat a day?  Hence, socks are important.

Full Moon Fiasco 65 in Review

Our last ride happen to fall on National Librarian Day.  And so, of course we dressed like librarians.  We also did a lap around our fine library.  Then we rode down to Connie's and chatted about books, libraries, smart topics and drank very adult beverages.  It was a fine night of learning.

We finally had some very nice weather for the ride, and hence, we saw some 100 riders.

There were a lot of new FBC Lifetime Members for Life inducted.  Great to see so many new faces.  Except the kids that showed up on the ride unattended.  If you happen to be a parent, these rides are not for unsupervised kids.

Thanks to Connie's, Val, Jenna and the rest of the staff for their hospitality.
