Only the COLDEST survive

Single digits y'all!!! Out at the Kitten Factory the temps hovered in the sub-zero domain, but the trip into Mad City raised the temps up to a balmy 4 degrees above. You know winter's been hard when 4 degrees seems warm.....initially. Liquid courage was in order to get this MOTAB started so anti-freeze was applied at Mickeys before heading off to the meat locker. 7 took off from the bar and were soon joined by 2 more at the abandoned building for the first 24MOTAB of '09. The Kittenmaster climbed Brick Mountain without the aid of oxygen or Sherpas and successfully launched the race only to be caught in an avalanche while descending.

Gamely fighting the cold everyone rode as fingers, toes and faces froze. Sometime during the race Zack disappeared and was not seen again. A search party was sent out but no trace was ever found. Avalanche, hypothermia, the dreaded snow sharks? We may never know. Colin despite the loss of a comrade bravely pushed on beginning '09 as he ended '08 with a stunning victory. This makes 4 24MOTAB wins in the space of a year. The Anti-Doping Federation is now interested in Colin's further activities. My guess is that they won't be disappointed. The Kittenmaster took a distant 2nd place and former MOTAB golden boy Scotty Shapiro took the DFL spot.

It would be nice to think that it can only get warmer from here on in but those used to the fickleness of Wisco winters know that February could actually be worse. But we'll be there. No matter what.
what are we stupid or somethin'?
pix are here.

aboriginally speaking, the climate beckons a once favored taste. not so much of a tepid flow, but rather, that of a limitless style whose contrasts stimulate the benchmark.

smartly clad and intrinsically woven, the grounds rang a glorious wail as the actors played out the victim's truth. forever spent as a nurturing womb of life, one must reconcile the absolute loss of sense and collect the common breath.

elegantne oblečený a vnútorne tkanín, s odôvodnením, zvonil slávnu Kvilte ako herci hrali mimo obete pravdy. navždy strávil ako starajúca maternice života, musí sa zmieriť absolútna strata zmyslu a zbierať spoločnom dychu.
