bike messenger appreciation day...

you know...every year i feel like it happens on a different date. sh*t...i thought this was in the summer...is there more than one? in any case...cdot have put together a nice breakfast for chicago messengers...



...so far it looks like it's shaping up to be nice messenger appreciation day. you know, weather wise...lets hope that keeps up. i hope our crew knows how much me and scott look out for them and appreciate all their work on a daily basis. sh*t...i wouldn't have a job without you cats out there. you guys are truly "the wind beneath our wings"...



In messenger radio code, 10/9 means repeat the message. This week, 10/9 meant the start of Messenger Courier Appreciation Week, a time to recognize the contributions of a group that more often than not is criticized for its traffic-dodging, stoplight-running and pedestrian-frightening ways.

...the rest of the article could be found at messmedia. btw...you take your chances saying "happy messenger day" to messengers. some will say thank you. some will look at you funny. some will tell you to f*ck off. in my opinion...just give them a dollar to show your appreciation...ha!

thank you to steve vance and emily willobee(did i spell your name right?) for the heads up on the breakfast and their hard work at the chicago bike federation...peace.

I heard there would be free beer at Mother Hubbard's as well. It might be that your first beer is free.
