Addiction LXXVII

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

Thanks. This looks to be an extremely truncated trip, so I might not even get to do any fun stuff whatsoever. You win some, you lose some.

So of course, after the bidon flip, one must drink from it with one's pinky held high. Right?

Boat maintenance costs must make bike costs seem like a drop in the ocean.

Fortunately, the co-owner of the boat and cutter of checks has the same opinion.

The blue cheese mustard is not bad, but it's also not something I will likely buy again.

reoffer $5.00 less than your original offer, should be worth a laugh.

Medium light mustard-ish. No bike chunks of mold, if that's what you were thinking.
