Addiction 2023.1

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

Doesnt sound good. I think it’s in your legs best interest to send it to me. That way you won’t have to worry about any readjustments in the Spring.

How bout that leader board aye?

I saw some pretty wild looking plaintiff’s attorneys in my hired gun days. Hats were big.

I could pull it off and skim it over the fence too, but then I’d run like hell.

Long ago and in a land far away, we were out cross country skiing, when we came upon a small group of people riding a large inner tube down a large hill. I asked if i could give it a run. They consented and pointed out a little, lone pine tree off in the distance. Beware of that tree. Right, I thought to myself. And sure enough, I had to bail at the last second to avoid slamming into that tree.

He reminds me of Junior Brown, but without Junior's bug eyes, and Junior always rocks big swoopy brim hats.

I do not wear the hat. There is a stereotype associated with hat wearers that I wish to not associate with.

Truth, my head is teeny tiny and I look ridiculous with it on. Plus, it’s one more thing for me to forget on the plane.

Lets see, to date I have left: Ipad, head phones, charger, sun glasses, head set, liscense, medical, passport, plus all the things I havnt discovered missing yet.

I failed to mention, in my ride report, that the sky was literally cloudless, and not a puff of a breeze, until the last two miles. A headwind, of course, but a very mild one. That literally cloudless sky continued throughout the day. I don't recall ever experiencing such a day. Magical.

That is the traditional configuration.

What happens if you get pulled over (out of the skies) and you don't have your license on you?

It wouldn’t fit you and I’d hate for you to just steal the parts off of it. As for the leader board, you’re killing it!
