Addiction LXXVIII

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've observed on my last few bike rides that traffic seems at or near normal again. On the interstate, however, it's still noticeably less.

I opted for a shorter, hillier, woodier effort rather than fight the winds on the Hardin Valley plains.

Zero cycling flybys on a 30 mile not-summer evening ride. Sad.

Glad you are unhurt. If he's just an employee lodge a formal complaint with his boss.

The Smoke Chief (https://www.smokehouseproducts.com). A cold smoke generator that sits on the gas grill shelf and pipes smoke into the rotisserie hole. Will try it this weekend.

Mine was all normal, too, except for my hemoglobin.

No, at my cancer center. I did get a new drug, too, though. Don't know if's a dog drug, though.

I learned this morning I have a special ability. I am invisible to all drivers. Now I just need to figure out how to control this special ability.
