Woo-town, USA!!!

My Lilac looking pensive yesterday.

That is until she mixes it up with the Jett-ster!


Then a quick ride to Travis’ ABRASIVE BLASTING AND COATING INC on Sutton Lane. Did you know Trav and his guys can have your older/used lawn furniture/cast iron gates/fences looking like new? Pics from yesterday’s visit:


Patio furniture awaiting sandblasting and painting…you choose your colors!


Travis also s-blasts and repaints (very hard dirty work!!!) trucks, dump trucks, plows, even tire rims taller than Jett …


And mark your calendars!!

14th edition!

George Street Bike Challenge for Major Taylor

Main and George streets

See how fast you can pedal up George Street, a two-block quad-buster that was a training ground for 1899 world champion Major Taylor.

It’s one rider at a time against the clock in this steep uphill time trial in downtown Worcester, presented by Barney’s Bicycle and the Seven Hills Wheelmen, on the fourth Sunday in July.

The distance is 500 feet, and the average grade is 18 percent.

The contest is open to riders age 12 and up.

Helmets are required.

Entry fee is $20.

Proceeds benefit the Major Taylor Association, Inc.

Registration is open.

This Saturday!

Postal dude Ron L. holds the posters he’s put up all over town!

EVERYBODY IN AMERICA – including Worcester! – please put canned goods and other nonperishables in a bag next to your mail box early Saturday morning. Your USPS mail guy or gal will pick up your donations when he/she delivers your mail … Then he or she will deliver your food items to local food banks!

It’s the largest food drive in the country! So easy to participate!


On a down beat … This is what I drove by yesterday: Millbury and lower Endicott streets … pathetic.
