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

Analogy of the day...

Cool-whip: whipped cream :: Tang: Orange Juice

Fun fact of the day: The creator of Tang also created Cool Whip and Pop Rocks.

Jack passed during the night. Given his behavior yesterday afternoon/evening, I kind of expected it - he'd snuggle a little bit, but then he'd keep crawling off to a quiet corner behind some furniture. When the boy was getting ready to turn in for the night, I told him to show Jack some love and to say his goodbyes. I'm glad I did - when the morning rolled around, I think that the boy took the news much better than he would have, otherwise. Man, from four animals to one, in the span of a little more than two years.

I have a feeling that the boy is going to ask for a kitten for Christmas.

Your kid will remember both the loss and how you helped him.

Man, I could use some sleep - I woke up early and it's been a trying day - but there's a Cyber Monday sale that goes live at midnight (not sure if that's eastern or central, though...) for some woodworking tools that I need for the remodel. They sell cosmetic blems at steep discounts and they usually go quick; they sure as hell won't be around when I wake up tomorrow.

That's sad, WhyFi. I know it's what we sign on for when we welcome them in, but it doesn't make this day any less easy.

Speaking of the trainer, I'm officially a Sufferlandrian. My trial period went really well - the type of workouts that they have and the method in which they scale them just put it right up my alley, so I signed up. Buh bye, TrainerRoad. See ya, Zwift.

There are 365 days until the next one. I bet you can grab some shuteye in there somewhere. You got this.
