OK.
I’ll be the literalist.
Hit a ‘pub’ today.
Drank a beer,
partway thru ~14,000 vertical feet.
Essentially all downhill. Sagged up, so to speak.



Headed down this run. Almost to the Interstate90 road below, seen as a horizontal line.

I grow old; I grow old.
And if I shrink in my sleep
No short pants do I keep.
I grow old, I grow old
So I wear my pants rolled.

Passing the Bar, noticed it was empty. Turned on the lights

to get a better look

AT MY NEW BICYCLE PROJECT.
Hugo Rickert from about 1959.
Been wanting a German bike and a vintage lightweight from my birth year.
Rickert is German - and settling on my birth decade instead of year.
Anyone got a Campy Gran Sport mini-group from '59 or early 60's?




OK, lights off - don't wanna run up the Forum bill.

No problem maintaining social distancing in the Bar today.
New public library being built not far from home. Probably won't change my preference for e-books from the library, but I will check it out when completed/opened.



Last one out turn off the lights. Done.

Love to take a coffee/pastry/reading break in the mornings.



People watching is fun too. Some interesting characters hanging out there. The only one who made me nervous was the guy who couldn't stand still. Kept walking in circles. Would stop at the bike on the left, placed there by a young (30ish) lady. Then around my table across the parking lot and back. One of the clerks came out and talked with him. But she was still inside and he was still outside when I finished. Unlike my books, in real life, sometimes questions remain unanswered.
