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

My private practice gave up the ghost, and I'm working for the VA and loving it, (COVID aside). I got remarried in 2016 and am the dad to a teenage girl (who alternates between being the best person in the world and driving me insane). So my life is blessed.

See you in another 4 yrs.
Miss you RUOkie. Enjoy the good life.

Oh, yesterday’s almost century was with two others. In the rain one of the riders started literally foaming at the chamois (obviously had not thoroughly rinsed out all the detergent) which made him the butt of several immature jokes during the ride.

In regards to Pcads passing. I'm am experiencing a strange contemplative mood. I can't really put it into words..the surealness of the situation . His tongue in cheek predictions of how he would likely meet his end, and the actuality. Just raises goose bumps on my arms.
Its just to damn sad to think about.
