I interact with him occasionally on Twitter still.

Did you let him know his favorite band, Sparks, is in town playing at the Big Ears Festival?

She's almost crippled, but keeps going. It makes me feel so helpless watching them. It's beautiful and horrifying at the same time.

My mother got tired of dealing with him and when he passed she was relieved. She moved to Boise to be near my younger brother around 2004 and I never saw her again.

Didn't have to move the bridge, although it would have made things easier for fender mounting if it had been done.

That doesn't work either. I've currently got 7 bikes with Look Delta pedals and 2 with Keos. I'll just have to keep training as god Merckx intended.

Left work today, and came home to wash the car with the fat arse. Changed, and went outside, but garage door wouldn’t open. Spring broke.

Got the car washed, and as I’m pulling it into the other garage door, the low tire warning suddenly came on.

Was going to take the day off tomorrow to take a long ride. Now I get to sit home waiting on the door repairman, and checking to see if the tire is flat and get it fixed if so, and probably no ride.

After getting in a ride at 60⁰ over the weekend, I was looking forward to suspending my Zwift account... and then I noticed the 10-day forecast with a long stretch of days hovering right around freezing and a good chance of snow. We did have a rather pretty snowstorm the other morning. Fortunately, the snow didn't stick around and I got in an IRL ride today.

Can Arizona hang on as the last 1 seed?

I am very average at Wordle and typically get the clue in 4, but today got it in 3. :bday:

Nyet. I keep telling people, getting ranked number one is a curse. Even if you donít come in overconfident, all your opponents are geared up to play their best game against you. Theyíve been scouting you for weeks. You canít afford to have a bad day.

Your best bet is to come in as a twelve. Or fifteen. :lol:

So...I arrive at work this morning to discover that REI shipped me two of the same tent I ordered in two separate boxes. On top of that, both packing slips, which have the same order numbers, show me being charged full price for each, without the coupon or dividend applied. But the person I spoke with tells me my card was only charged once for a price that did not included the coupon applied. So now I have to make sure that I was given a roughly $78 credit for the coupon on my next CC bill and make sure I was not actually charged for the second tent.

REI is going to send me a return label for the second tent. I have half a mind to keep it for my inconvenience and see what happens.

Maybe it's a BOGO?

I have ridden a total of a metric century since the start of the year.

I will have the first two weekends in April to get in real rides before my long weekend trip, which is scheduled to start Holy Thursday. (Tomorrow and Sunday are supposed to be crappy.) If that doesn't happen, it's going to be a suffer-fest.

Hoo-ee that one had me worried.

More like crappy customer service. Checked with my bank to confirm that I was not charged for either tent at full price. There is only one charge. Once REI gives me the credit for the sale price, everything will be correct. But I hate having to clear up crap like this.

Can I interest you in a NIB, UL tent? Only 2.8 lbs. packed weight.
