Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Damn. I hope you get to feeling better, RollCNY. That is the talk of a man who is not well.

I thought you were on a diet. Get your ass over to the toaster, and eat some whole grain breakfast, and put that **** you're going to eat back where you got it.

How's that, son?

I am literally watching the roads dry out before my eyes. I may get to go ride in an hour or two.

I still have a cold. Thanks for the encouragement, but I still have the "blehs". Has Mr. @rjones28 coughed up details on the bike derailment?

Mrs. rjones28 just signed on to a recording project. And, in the world of classical music, labels don't front the production costs. But artists retain more control.

The lady who lives downstairs is unemployed and miserable and she deals with this by talking loudly all of the time and by yelling about how much of a brat her daughter is some of the time. My first thought is always "I need to get that girl on a bike so she can get the hell out of here." My second thought is "I need to get on my bike so I can get the hell out of here." I think this thinking will become even more prevalent when it starts to warm up here and everyone has their doors and windows open. Who knows but what the girl and I could both be riding centuries by September.

In other news, I made a very unhealthy breakfast of ground beef in brown gravy served over fried potatoes and brought it down to the shop so LoP could open early. Gosh, I'm crazy about that guy. Maybe I should serve him more quinoa so he'll be around longer but this was so delicious.
