Thank you, Christine!

I ordered a Carradice Long Flag Camper and Saddlebag SQR Uplift from Wallingford Bicycles to add as rear luggage on Brahma. The bag arrived a few days after Brahma arrived. The SQR system is a quick-release system that allows you to attach/remove the bag off the seat pillar, very quickly. This feature is especially useful to have on a folding bike like Brahma. In a Brompton, particularly, it is much easier to attach the SQR system to a telescopic seat pillar than a standard seat pillar. Attaching the SQR to a standard seat pillar prohibits the seat pillar from retracting all the way. If you have a telescopic seat pillar, you can attach the SQR to the telescopic seat pillar and still retract the seat pillar all the way down.

Rambo practicing his Taguchi : inspecting the goods, to make sure everything is to specification!
Installing the SQR Uplift on Brahma's Telescopic Seat pillar was a piece of cake. The installation took about 5 minutes, tops

The bag looks great and is quite spacious. I haven't used it for shopping or carrying stuff to work yet. Between the Brompton T-Bag and the Carradice Long Flag Camper, I bet I will be able to carry all of what I need for a S24O.

My bag was personally handcrafted by Christine of Carradice. Thanks, Christine, for a job well done!
Given the 98+ degree temps in DFW, I doubt I will dare do a S24O before it cools off, unless we get some good rains and the temps really drop...Now, that would be a welcome change, if you ask me :)

Hope your weekend is going well!

Peace :)

Sand Burrs - Not a friend of Shaggy Dog!

Shaggy and I drove to Cedar Hill yesterday so I can get turn in my Texas State Park Pass voucher and get official pass from the TX Parks Office at Cedar Hill State Park.

We stopped at the Joe Pool Lake to check it out. It was a hot, yet beautiful day here in Dallas. Shaggy didn't appreciate the heat. He hid under the bench.
While this photo is not very crisp, I still want to show it so y'all can see the devastating effect the burrs had on Shaggy's face, which you can see in the next photo.

After we got done with the official business, we decided to go hike the Duck Pond Trail at the Cedar Hill State Park. Little did I know about the dangers of taking a Old English Sheepdog walking in a trail abundant with the infamous Sand Burr. The result:
Those evil things got all over his face and he started rubbing his face with his paws and the burrs from the paws got transferred to his face and it was just a really horrible mess.

I tried pulling them burrs off but in vain. There were way …

Out goes the Chow In comes the Basil and the catters are resting

So, we finally got some cooler temps in North Texas.
In fact, a bit too cold, too soon, for some :)

So, with the new colder weather, someone who has been refusing to stay out in the yard, doesn't want to come in no more. Go figure :)

In comes the Basil plant. Too cold for it, at least right now.
Who knows though? Next week it could be back in the low 80s or some such.
Either way it is fine.
Change is good too.

The catters like to eat and sleep.
Particularly, the seniors.

And, some tired looking Juniors.

It is an assortment this time

That's right. You read the title correctly - this post contains an assortment of photographs, not necessarily in any special order.

I will give you a minute to guess what the first photograph is of :) In case you haven't a clue, you can see my little blurb about it at the very end of this post.
I had the day off Friday, so I did rest a bunch and spend time with my family. Black Kitty took a nap with me and was even friendly after I trimmed his nails :) Sometimes, reflections can be very interesting. I love looking at reflections on many objects/surfaces, such as this reflection of a fence on a motorcycle's headlight.
Just in case. 
The reflection in the first photo is one of a church. The photograph was taken by clicking at the television, while we were watching a British Murder Mystery show. If you enlarge the photo, you can see lot more details.

It has been a great week. Hope yours was too.
