Addiction LXXVI

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

I can't even play fake basketball. I dance better than I play basketball.

An interesting twist. Once I stopped sweating continuously, I immediately began peeing much more frequently

I liked the Brave browser so much, on my phone, that I put it on my chromebook too. It will accept my bf password only from lastpass. If I type it in, it is considered faulty. And, if I close lastpass while logged in to bf, the login doesn't stick. Hopefully this issue will work itself out.

Edit: Even if I shrink lastpass down to the ??bar, I am logged out.

I'm not a huge fan of brownies anymore. Costco has a triple chocolate layer cake though, which is deadly, especially if you get stuck taking half of it home. They also have a quite nice choco-flan.

And now it seems it's time to go for a ride. How did it get to be 2:30 already? I have never had trouble falling back. Until this most recent edition of it.

If you're wearing my wedding ring when you come back that'll be really weird.

Enjoy!!!

I do expect to still be wearing MY wedding ring, but you never know....

I will try to post updates of travels and maybe even a pic or two. Short stay in London for a stupid long layover, then on to Andalucia.

Yes, PP&M covered Leaving on a Jet Plane, but they hit it out of the park. Their version reigns supreme.
