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

When I got back to my cart another shopper had taken one bag of litter out, laid it on top of a box of the linens and was placing some items of hers in the cart. She said something like "Oh. Is this yours? I didn't see anyone." Was she just too lazy to get her own cart but not too lazy to lift a 31 lb. bag of kitty litter and likely do the same to the other one still in the cart?
Weird. otoh I never leave the cart unattended.

No macular degeneration, something above average relates to blue light, and no glaucoma. The seeing double thing was correct. I need more prism in my glasses to help out but they can't give me as much as i need but it should make it so that i can adapt. Or something like that.

as previously stated, put down the Twitter pipe, it's dehumanizing you. If you interacted with people face to face more you would understand this.

I need to get some white bread for the log of Braunschweiger I got the other day.

Those sandwiches take mustard, no pickles. We only have bread that's primarily composed of seeds and nuts, and that just doesn't work with Braunschweiger.

Geriatric double-dose flu shot is big and the nurse stuck the head of my humerus on the first attempt. Did not feel good. I had better get back to the weights this this winter!

My neighbor feeds Braunschweiger to the peacock. L.A. passed a law a few weeks back making it illegal to feed feral peacocks.

Just before I got on here, I get a text reminding me that I have a monthly eye injection in two weeks.
