10 within 2 miles of here. They should call this part of town Little Chennai. (actually 2.828 miles as the crow flies)

But not quite as dumb as raking leaves in December.

Suggest to the owner of the best one that he open a franchise in west Knox County, TN.

Christmas Dinner achievement unlocked. It was good. The Younger Boy made the stuffing (I helped, because he does not have my Mad Knife Skillz and he'd still be working on the damn celery NOW if I didn't), and The Older Boy, who really did a number on his right shoulder, made the gravy.

Mrs. GeneJockey even got The Boys, who are currently feuding, to sit down with her and do a jigsaw puzzle. It's a Festivus Miracle!

There is actually a Nissan 350Z under that abomination.

I saw the roofline and was trying to determine what it was. I see it now.

One, or the other. It can't be both :)

What's your secret to chopping celery?

It can't be a Porcshe?

That was hard to sound out.

Lately when I hit the login button, I'm taken to the terms of service page
I had to drop off of my woodworking forum because the site simply doesn't work, in my world. Buttons disappear. HTML overlays. Bot interference. Etc. Also because I'm backing away from the internet in general.

About an hour in, I got the sneaking suspicion that my bastard of a headwind was actually a crosswind and that I wouldn't get any relief upon turning around. Unfortunately, I was right. Oh well - better than sitting on my ass and it knocked out a chunk of the Festive 500.

The weather was nasty here, freezing rain etc. spent the whole day family-ing which was deeply enjoyable. Going out today for a metric probably, or at least close to one though I doubt Iíll hit the full 500 in time.

This was one of the years where the kids were with me for Christmas morning. It was awesome. They opened all of their gifts and played most of the morning before they had to go to their momís at 2.

My wife and I had planned on making Paella for dinner but ended up just eating the rest of our appetizers. We played about 4 games of hand and foot, some trivial pursuit and killed a bottle of gin.

was a good day

Let me repeat, I did not take a nap on the 24th or 25th. It wasn't my idea.

I'm optimistic that I'll get to 500 again, though I can already feel the fatigue piling on. I'll get in a light spin later today to keep on pace and loosen the legs, but I might need to bear down for one or two more 100+km rides next week.

We’re fogged in for now. Coffee now, maybe ride later.

If I had vacation this week I totally could. Iím going to need to do 50 a day to get there, which is a bit of a stretch

Today may be the day I broach the Aspero to Mrs. Phrantic

Though now leaning toward Caledonia 5- 35mm is probably enough tire for my needs
