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

Did the old house get wiped out by hurricane? Or is it still there, covered in jungle?

I got a sad email from Amazon about some Joe's sealant I ordered.

Hello,We're very sorry that your package has not yet arrived. At this point, we can only presume that the package was lost during shipping. As the item(s) is/are unavailable for replacement, we've requested a refund for the full amount of this shipment, including shipping costs.
So I decided to go with some Caffelatex. Hope it gets here soon.

We sold it, and it was disassembled and re-built in the village.

The Doc told me that. I just get frustrated because I want it to be faster. Last time I saw him, he said it's coming along nicely. I've got full range of motion, it's just weak.

24 miles in a year is nothing to be proud of. You'll have to accept my word or not.
