--- Damned shame that to be wiped out by a car as a pedestrian.

 

I went full pedestrian about 7 yr ago and it largely improved my attitude in this god foresaken town I don't even wanna ride my bike in anymore. It definitely requires a different mentality in the motorists are looking for menacing cars, not walkers. Thus I generally stay away from big intersections and lucky to have 2 parks and a large church parking lot and nice neighborhood for most of my forays.

--- Both Oscar and Jeff Fenech pick Pea as the better fighter at lightweight over Floydy.

 

Oscars comments date back to April while Pea was still with us, and Jeff's comments are undated, but he has good connection to Pea and says there were attempts to make that fight.
