Addiction 2023.1

Notices
Road Cycling ďIt 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.Ē -- Ernest Hemingway

Just remember you always need to have the last two words in any argument: yes, dear.

Big printing got ahold of you. They want their cartridge money!

I, through surviving 2 marriages, found that I am attracted to damaged women. Why that is, isn't clear to me. I haven't dated since my last marriage ended because I can't do that again. I make bad choices.
My first I married at 19. She walked out on me and took my daughter with her. She's been married twice since then. 15 years later I married no.2, I was her 4th ( big red flag) 5 years, the last 2.5 were pure hell. Marriage counseling, therapist. Jail. Yeah, nope! Not doing that again. It's been final for 12 years. She is on her 2nd marriage since our divorce. Talk about a busted screening process...

Now for a tech rant I need to print out a document. Our ******g HP printer is low on COLOR ink. I don't want to print anything in color, and there is PLENTY of black ink. But the stupid printer will NOT print for me because the color ink is low.
Take it to a field and hit it with a bat.

Someone listed one here yesterday. Not quite as nice, BUT a previous owner already made the first cut needed to turn it into a Vega pickup!

Sharp looking machine. Can’t do pink though. My wife’s bike is pink. I need more affirmation of my manliness, hence mine will be blue.

They want you to buy ink.

I like Brother BW laserjets - they run forever for cheap. And I don't need color for anything I print.

Did just print boarding passes for tomorrow, because OFC.

And glad I decided to get tickets, because the part came a little later in the day than expected and car won't be ready until tomorrow. So they'll have it for two weeks, but I had a guaranteed travel plan.

That new ADZ makes me lusty. I think need a new red Time to replace my old red Time...

This is the best-handling bike I've ever ridden. These days, however, it lives on my trainer. Sad.
