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

CC is having a big shoe sale. In particular, for the paddlefeet among us, all Lakes are at least 25% off with select models/sizes at 50%+ off.

Thank goodness that they don't carry the 238 Wide in Silver Camo - I might have been upset if they were available for only 50 bucks more than the shoes that I just received.

South Africa apparently. Tuscon thinks they can avoid infestation. I find that highly unlikely.

Maybe you can train him to wake you up at 0400 hours.

I've only got a few rides in with them, but they're keepers (not that I could return them if I wanted to, but ya know).
Shame on you for posting a photo with obvious white balance flaws. Takes less than 2 minutes to fix. We have standards.

Oh, less than two minutes, but this was on the phone and it's not exactly capturing RAW. Noted, though, and I will try to adhere to thread standards in the future.

Yeah, I could have him call me at 0400 when he finally goes to bed after playing on the computer all night.

My grandson (16 yo) got hired by our local Golds Gym a couple weeks ago to continuously clean surfaces, equipment, railings, virtually everything non-stop. I assume he lost his job as of 5 PM due to the Illinois SIP edict.

For the most part I don't know what's invasive here, but I know this is.

Forgot to mention on my ride (Wednesday?) I went by the Brown Squirrel and it appeared to still be open, or at least there were cars in the lot. DougRNS

I actually have two over sold flights today, kind of surprising. My other flights are empty though.
