Cupcakes!

I hear that today is Administrative Professionals Day. I found this out when I passed by this box of cupcakes at the university. I still rely heavily on their skill and knowledge for the stuff I still do for the university. Budgets, purchasing, human resources, contract management and travel are just some of the areas where their expertise is relied on.

The day (Wednesday) started out not at the university but swapping out Ural tires with JedR. He had switched to studded K37 tires back in November so this was just the switch back to "summer tires" (also K37). The first one always takes a long time but I think the pusher proved to be the most difficult as it was a brand new tire. Very stiff. The Baja No-Pinch tool worked like a charm. I don't even want to do a motorcycle tire installation without that wonderful tool.

I thought it was warm enough to remove the handlebar muffs but it was below freezing again this morning (Thursday). Heated grips are nice to have.

  5. Cupcakes!! My boss used to celebrate Administrative Professional day, but after 16 years of working for him it is just another day, lol.

    I think Brad bought one of those no pinch tools but hasn't used it yet. Good to know it is a keeper.

    1. Second best tool around for working with tires. JedR has one of the original ones and it works much more smoothly.

  7. Things you still do for the University??? I thought your were retired! They're clouding your reasoning with sugar and cupcakes!
