Addiction LXXIX

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

Oh? I've done some dusk (or later) cycling on Knoxville roads, and it didn't feel too balmful.

congratulations on your purchase. I am sure you will enjoy it for many years. We have 2 Honda CRV's and find them to be fine vehicles. Never had a foreign car and now we have 2. Made in Canada.

I will google to see what a Fit is. I am guessing a hybrid/E assist.

looks sporty. Did you get the stick or CVT Automatic? Interestingly the automatic gets better MPG. Enjoy your car, I give 3.5 out of 4 awesome Marigold jackets.

The shiner. The eye is getting better, not as much closure from the fluid accumulation. It will be nice once the remnants are gone so I don't have to explain what happened.
