A Bike Ride and Second Thoughts about Computer Designed Buildings


Last Friday I took the day off and Heather and I went for a bike ride on Tulsa’s Arkansas River Trails. Of course I had to take the selfie before we took off. Notice that the strap that holds the helmet on my head also packs up my double chins pretty well.


This is a YogiCam shot showing Heather on the right and a showoff zooming by with no hands on the handlebars. What do you think about guys like that. Personally I’m mad I can’t do it. Of course I’ve never tried it either.


Ripping by the University Club apartments. I should have slowed down and took a better picture they are semi-famous. It was the first building ever designed with a computer. It did two years of calculations in 24 minutes. I don’t where we went wrong personally but things have gone the other way around. For example with PowerPoint you can take you days to put together a presentation that should take only an hour to put together. We’ve lost our way somewhere. The other thing that it is famous for is that a former resident is serving 25 years for pushing her husband out a window from their 17 story apartment. I don’t know about you but that doesn’t say much for computer designed buildings is what I think.



Here are some other apartments further up the river. No murders here that I know about.


And then we headed back to the car so we could go pick up the kid at school.

Have you been on a bike ride lately? You don’t live in a computer designed building do you? With a volatile spouse? On a high floor? Poor you.

    I think, and I may be wrong, that you are a bit odd to be filming your wife’s rear end. Poor girl, she gets no privacy where your camera lens is concerned.
    Personally, I reckon the guy riding with “no hands” deserves all he could well get. No sympathy from me if he does – I hate show-offs.
    The row of houses is lovely and reminds me of the famous row in San Francisco. I appreciate my memory may be a bit dim (due to my age and length of time since I was in SF).
    Fun post Yogi and your usual brilliant wording.

      Heather may not like me taking pics of her rear end but I really don’t think that it would do well take pics of other women’s butts either.
