I was out riding BTW. It was wet and messy but beats the trainer.

It's going on too thick. Find a way to spray thinner coats.

Remember when President Bush went to his ranch on vacations, and would bring in cameras to film him hauling brush, to convince people he was a tough guy? Well, that was me this morning, only no show for the camera, I'm real deal tough.

I don't know why I laughed hard at that.

I don’t see it happening.

That was really appropriate BITD when instead of being set up like a liquor store, they were set up like pharmacies - step up to the counter and tell the guy what you wanted, and he'd go fetch it from the back.

Highlight or lowlight?

During my September tour I was having lunch on a patch of grass at a shopping center in Great Barrington, MA. The business next door was playing 70s music piped into the parking lot and doing a brisk business for a Sunday around 11am. People walking out with unmarked paper bags. A lot of them hippie looking with beater cars. I Googled the business. Turned out to be a pot dispensary.

I'm trying to decide whether I want to do a 'last ride of the year, or a 'first ride of the New Year', or "****” it. Do both!"

Also, the owner of that building should look into fixing the cracks in the wall.

All I can say is it was better than the infamously tragic 2020. But that's a low bar.

Go outside. It's gray, dreary, chilly (kind of), and everything is dead.

It's great for hauling groceries. Cheaper to run than an old Honda.

And, when you spray thin coats, spray the next coat while the prior coat is still tacky. That helps the two coats “melt” together and become one rather than multiple layers of cured paint.

We were just watching a bio of her the other night. What an amazing talent! What a life!

I don't think his problem is that his paint is cured. I think it's that his paint is CURSED!!!!!

Sadly, no. But there is a farmer's market in nearby Cazenovia
