Filling in the Gaps

Hello, and welcome to the Flat Tire!
The newest most innovative site on Bloggerland!
In this, our collectible First Issue, we'll give you a little taste of what you, the reader can expect in forth coming posts.
We think you'll enjoy it.
The forth coming posts, I mean.
We'll start off with a day to day, hour to hour update on what's going on around here, Flat Tire Land.
Every second is filled with adventure and fun, intrigue and action!
So don't miss a minute!
Well on Thursday, nothing happened.
Actually something happened, but not much.
So little in fact that it mostly counts as nothing.
Yesterday though, something happened!
I left my camera in the car though, so you'll just have to take my word for it.
Anyways, I got invited to participate in a pumpkin carving contest.
Lemme tell you, I was sort of nervous for these sort of competitions can get crazy and I haven't carved a pumpkin in like fifteen years or so.
I'd actually rather eat them.
The pumpkins I mean.
My grandmother used to cook them with a teriyaki sauce that as they say around these parts would broke da mouth.
Luckily, someone had a camera so I'll be able to get the images later, but for now all I got is this:

Unfortunately I didn't bring home the gold, but I did get that nice apron.
Which I needed for the pumpkin rinds were flying all over the place!
It was a pumpkin massacre!
In a nice way I mean.
I was part of a team from school, there were like eight of us, and we had four pumpkins to carve/decorate in two hours.
I took along some of my clay tools in hopes they would work on that orangy substance, and it worked out okay:

I gotta go and soak the pumpkin off of them cause pumpkin is like well, orange glue.
When it dries I mean.
Again, I hope to have some pics later.
I need my tools pumpkin free cause it's that time of year again!
I got that craft fair thingy to do and I got nothing so I gotta head out to the gara-uh, studio to make some hopefully saleable items.
More scratch for the bicycle bling don't you know.
As for bicycle news well, there isn't any.
Except for that trainer, which I'm still trying to figure out.
More on this later.
So there you go!
The collectible Flat Tire First Edition(FTFE)!
Save it for it'll be worth like some big bucks in the future.

The Headless Horseman is often portrayed with a jack-o-lantern for a head, either held in his hand, or actually on top. That dude is scary. He could be riding a bike, though.

You know, I thought about carving a pumpkin bicycle helmet, but I figured it would be a waste of a good pumpkin.
I mean it would have to be a rather large pumpkin to fit on this head.
Besides, I'm not very fond of orange hair.
Boy, I really like the word pumpkin.
Pumpkin, pumpkin, pumpkin.
