Harold Ramis; November 21, 1944 – February 24, 2014

We have lost another great one. 
After a long battle with vasculitis Harold Ramis passed away yesterday.  Thankfully, he left behind a legacy of incredible work that not only entertained but influenced the newest generation of actors and writers in the comedy genre.  Among his works are some of my personal all time favorite films.  From "Groundhog Day", "Stripes", "Caddyshack",  and "Ghostbusters" to one of my personal top five "Animal House".  His sense of irony and sardonic wit resonated through the characters he created.  The impishly fun way he poked fun at the establishment and it's  morality imposed strictures emanated through actors like Bill Murray, Chevy Chase and John Belushi just to name a few.  His films always left me the lasting impression to just not take $#!+ to serious. I wish there had been more time to see what else this genius could come up with.  Sir, Hollywood has just become a little more dull.
Yesterday was a blitz.  First thing in the AM we sold six in under ten minutes!  This left us hurting for stock, yet again!  But, HEY, it's a good problem to have!  Imagine the alternative!  Soooooo, spent a good amount of time banging out some new goodies.  Got two real sweet kids bikes, one an awesome running girls GIANT 20" MTB!!  Also, thankfully, picked up a few new ones as well.  Top of the heap is a really nice looking Schwinn three wheeler, newer and in excellent shape!  Just needs a few tweaks and she's ready to go!  Then on to a couple old school 3 and 5 speed touring bikes.
So with that, we will make it short so I can get back at it!
See ya soon!
