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

Just learned back home there have been two different domestic murders this past week. One was a murder suicide, and one was just a murder. Both cases husband offed the wife.
Any chance this is a direct result of the quarantine?
Anybody looking at divorce rates right now?

In lighter news I get to go home today, have not actually gotten to do a ride in about 3 weeks so I am hoping that tomorrow morning before the rain comes I can get one in.

Fun fact since I have been back at work I have been stuck in **** weather. While at work non stop shooting approaches to minimums and moderate turbulence, (wx perfect at my house). I get home and the weather quickly turns to rain.

I blame velo for this case of terrible no good bad luck.

3 am off to work I go.

One upside to this isolation stuff is the lack of morning traffic noise. The birds sound louder.

I was OK with folks with masks, simply because they weren't passing it on to me. I don't get close enough to anyone, and other than a thank you from me, there are few words spoken.

Back at work doing telemedicine. I have to tell our only non-physician provider (a PA) that she has to go on furlough. Sad!!
