Facilitator

Yesterday I was hired.
I'm now finally employed again. I held out for a while, but this job might be great. I'm the "facilitator" for a green construction company. Cabinets, decks, bathrooms, remodels, expansions. High end-ish work using sustainable materials. As facilitator, I'm responsible for driving the company panel truck, keeping the carpenters and such supplied, keeping track of stuff. When I'm not needed in this fashion, I'll just be working, learning carpentry by being the low man on the totem.

Since I've moved here I've tried to keep my unnecessary spending to a minimum. Beyond getting new insurance and buying groceries and gas and parking tickets and dinners and rent and untilities, I've tried to keep from spending my dwindling funds for going towards unnecessary things.
My last bike was stolen after being locked outside my apartment for less than 3 hours. I hadn't found my key to my U-bolt lock, so I just had it locked with a rope chain. But beyond the hassle of my mom and uncle stuffing it in the truck to get it out to me, it wasn't a terrible loss.(Well, that and the 100$+ dollars it was worth even as a trade-in.)

Today I went out and bought a new-to-me road bike. I've never had a non-mountain bike. It's all very exciting. I went to the bike shop around the corner, but the selection there was minimal, so they sent me to a much smancier place on South St. Old bikes at high prices, but I found what I liked and was in a mood to spend. This was the back door of the place:


The bike I bought is an SR SemiPro.
There's some controversy as to who made the silly thing as there is a bike component manufacturer also by the name SR which probably wasn't the manufacturer of this bike, but did make some bikes? It's all confused. It has a real pretty matching set of Shimano 600 components.
