That would give Harper plenty of opportunities to let his hair fly behind him in the breeze, and of course his tight american swimsuit would fit right in with the European swimsuit sensibilities. We have a year to get the planning together. Count me in.
While that windmill and bikepath tour I did around my hometown with Roland (Rolandisimo) is a fine trip, it's not worth crossing the Atlantic for, I think. It's different if you are in Europe, or preferably in the Netherlands, anyway, and hence can do this 50 mile ride as a bonus. In that case, I'd be happy to guide you folks on a Dutch-flavoured International Harper Day.

I was in VEGAS, BABY!!

Karen and I provided upgrades to several casinos there and then came home with empty wallets and our tails between our legs. We attended the wedding of the son of some friends of ours. It was at the Graceland Chapel in Las Vegas. What a riot. Elvis attended, but did not preside. Odd...they don't know about IHD in LVNV.

I celebrated in the spirit of Harper, by ditching out on a ride.

Harper, Pannekoken and Unicycling. The stuff dreams are made of.

I spent-a International Harper Day searching for the six-fingered man.
I did not-a find him though.

It's been-a twenty years now and I'm starting to lose confidence.

GILD posted the link to the radiostation in this thread. But it was streaming audio and I'm not sure if the station serves past programs. However, tada tada, Klaas comes to the rescue. I saved a portion of the stream, including said announcement, as a 23 MB mp3 file. Send me a pm and I can make it available to you.

I have the specific link available as a 1398KB mp3 file which should be easily emailable.

If you'd like to give it a listen, drop me a mail on unigild at gmail dot com.

Dave-

Thanks for the moment of fame. I got the entire file from Klaas. Odd, the announcement runs exactly 15 seconds. Are you a closet Warhol agent? I hope you're able to make an IHD ride someday. I hope I can make the next one.

Do not lose confidence young man. For the wheel of fortune comes full circle eventually.

International Harper Day was a bust this year, again because of a no-show by the (self proclaimed) guest of honor. But the good news is that next year it will be International Bionic Harper Day, and the turnout will be massive.

Why? Does everyone plan on gaining a lot of weight?
