Addiction LXV

Notices
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

Actually I think they would fit in a bottle cage. Some models (the Charge) is actually a charger for other devices like the phone so I think it has a pretty significant capacity. The do charge by USB cable.

These are superb.

Focal makes some great stuff. Their home stuff was one of the anchor brands for the first hi-fi shop that I worked for. The Utopia Be line wasn't too shabby.

Good thing she's not like Moose. Whenever we would encounter another 4-legged creature on our walks he would instantly lunge towards it at full power. Over time I suffered hyperextension of both elbows and damaged both wrists walking that moose before I learned to be as observant as he was. I would not have survived were I recovering from surgery.

Good to get it out of the way before the big, multi-day tours. One has to practically stay off the forums in order to avoid spoilers.

Mrs. rjones28 holds the leash. Benson's pretty good on lead, but I'm not taking any chances.

The goats in question:

(I did warn that they would be crappy pics , I was trying to take them discretely, and I couldn't see the screen because of the sun).

And as an honorable mention, another familiar site is this yard of jackasses (several more abound, but were not in the mood for photos):
