It's what, 35, 37 years old?

The one I saw was probably circa 1990, so 32 years old.

I went to check the paint can... and there's paint covering the front of the paint can, so I don't know for sure. :o I think that it's Benjamin Moore Advance, either Semi- or High-Gloss.

last time I did it thatís what I used. Ben Moore advance alkyd semi gloss. Itís a great paint

Yuck. In this case, Zwift might actually be preferable.

If I hadnít paid to do this, for sure.

It was originally 77 with 7k, now itís a little shorter. One of the roads was not passable so they needed to re-route

Would have had Wordle in 3 if I had used my normal start, which I gave up on because it always led to 4. :notamused:

I went ahead and signed up for booster #2. Honestly, the data for it is less compelling and even the FDA/CDC gave a lukewarm “permissive approval” rather than full recommendation….but in my line of work I see a lot of sick people so I figure benefit>risk. Getting it later today, and hoping it won’t ruin my Sunday ride where I am supposed to ride my age.

My mother is going to get hers before her hip replacement, as an extra precaution against being in the hospital and with a stressed body.

Reasonable. Reminder to get it 2-4 weeks before surgery to allow enough time to recover from immune response and maximize antibody protection.

I have a few three vowel words that I use but obviously I need to rethink that.

So you have to do a 12 mile ride at 77 degrees?

Might be do able where you live on the daily I am not familiar with your client. Did you happen to check the barometric pressure? Important piece of information you donít want to miss out on.

77 degrees was cool and pleasant. Normally my rides are in much hoitter, and more humid weather, We have another cool day today, in the mid 80s, and then it gets hot again.

I generally try to use s, t, r and 2 vowels.

I can get rid of the pump I always haul with me. This rocks.

Oh, I thought it was an 85. In California you can get the historical vehicle plate for cars older than 25, I think.

There is a house I ride by where the guy has a Mustang like that and it looks like it just came from the showroom.

Also 25 years in New York. BTW, all of the Fox Body Mustangs are eligible. :50:

The one I saw with the historic plates was not in mint condition.
