Maybe there's a God of Small Miracles?

Joseph and Patches, as last seen on Sunday afternoonJoseph and Patches, as last seen on Sunday afternoon

Yes I've transgressed for the second time, this isn't a bicycle orientated story. Head over to Barista for superb coverage of the tragic aftermath of Katrina.

Amongst the immeasurable pain of New Orleans and the Gulf Coast, small moments of joy still abound. Joseph and Patches are still out there. Somewhere.

Where are they? People are looking for them!

Saturday afternoon Update 10/9*:
Hi Chris
They found Joseph Barnes in Arkansas but Patches is still in NO. The National Guards made him give her up but he says that they told him that he can come back and get her. We don't know who he gave her too but he told Barbara that Patches was ok. Amazing how some people will not give up. Just wanted to let you know.

*cfsmtb note: Isn't the internet wonderful?!?

  • How the hell did you keep this blog a secret from me for so long?

    It'll take me days just to read your sidebar.

    A friend pointed me toward your post about the ride report on radio. I do the morning shift on 98.5 Sonshine FM in Perth and mention my cycling addiction fairly regularly. I'm thinking of adding a ride report to my daily shift.

  • Cheers Rodney, despite being all over the internet like a pricky rash I suppose I should promote the blog more.

    Thanks for the feedback and assisting with a bike ride report!
