Just got to take a 145 up for a joy ride. Felt like a kid again.

There seems to be 3 main offenders in my area, the ones with the pro-level skyrockets. You know, the ones when they launch there is a loud, deep "whump" sound and then when they explode it echoes for 2-3 seconds, rattling windows and setting off car alarms.

I don't understand what they get out of it, especially after weeks on end.

Some of us are just wired that way. I used to travel in Guatemala in the winter. Around the holidays, people would buy as much as they could afford. They were used in parades, religious ceremonies. I, of course, could afford lots. There was one festival in particular, where professional grade sky rockets were set off from the ground(a 3"pipe welded to a steel plate). We'd be strolling along and all of a sudden people were moving. Then you'd hear/feel the whump. Some of us live for that sound in close quarters.
One year my wife had an early flight New Year's Day, so we stayed in Guatemala City overnight. I awoke a little past midnight and listened for the next 45 minutes. War zone or thunderstorm. Neighborhood by neighborhood.
Good times
No, I am not a Viet Nam vet.

I had to tell at the neighbor kid to keep his dog off my lawn last year. Having the only grass in a ¼ mile radius, he would head over for a nice poo or pee and a very vigorous scratching of the turf.

I like White hubs, though I do have a set of American Classics burning a hole in my toolbox... Those may go with the soon eliminated HED alloy rim offering... So much to do.

Of course, this is likely fogged out rambling, as Georgia-Mae and Lotus like the squeaky toy action at 3 am, along with the fireworks til midnight.

Who, exactly, is Georgia Mae?
We will need nearly daily pics of Lotus as she grows.

Funny thing is, the car noise and neighbors talking or playing music kill me, but fireworks would be fine. Haven’t heard one yet though.

These were some kids from down the block - they're friends with the boy next door. Not a damn one of them seems to have practiced any kind of social distancing at any point during the lockdown, not that it really matters as far as today is concerned, but to provide a bit of context.

Anywho, they were being kids - yelling, running, making a ruckus, etc - while playing in the neighbor's front yard (I don't think that the neighbor boy was even present, though). Then they start spilling in to my front yard. Fine, whatever. But then they start peering in my windows ("ooh - I saw someone!"), as I'm still walking around in bibs and shirtless, post-sticky-morning-ride. Then they started shooting their Nerf blasters at my window screens whenever my daughter looked outside to see what all the commotion was about. :rolleyes: That's when I had to go shake my fist at them.

Georgia-Mae.

It seems breeders fall of the earf, no matter how hard we try to stay in touch. We stayed in touch with Cheryl, which is where Georgia came from, and now Lotus.

https://cimg4.ibsrv.net/gimg/bikefor...feb9a2573d.jpg

Lotus, loving the grass. I was going to do a little walk with her, but I put the harness on, and she decided a nap under the tree was way more better.

Naps are essential. Especially under shady trees.

I was in by 11. My first normal ride in a week. A dump truck went out of its way to enter my lane, coming from the opposite direction, inside a village fortunately. The cop following him expressed his disapproval. And in that same village, as I was adjusting the seatpost, a car did the same just so it could honk at me.
What is wrong with people?
I'm already a little more alert out there. And not in a good way.
Oh and good luck!
