Addiction 2021.4

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

Day 2 of staycation.

I already knocked out an item on my to do list! I took Roscoe to the vet for a check up. His eye surgery was successful and I'm happy to report he is still awesome. Grass cutting is also on the schedule today I'm just waiting for it to warm up. Hopefully I can fit in a nap at some point. Napping is an essential activity when on staycation. enjoying some coffee now.

Really? I have no recollection of that at all, although Im now not surprised to see who it was. Probably because early on the brother was too freaky for me. Another song of his that I do really like is You sexy mf.

no need to worry, the hinge has been expertly lubed and is not squeaking. I might have to lube more often in the future. No one likes a squeaky hinge.
