You make a good case to remain on terra firma.

I don't have an N95 mask and I'm doing just fine.

Shut-ins don't need masks.

I was just out and about in Knox County. See Strava.

Could be worse, you could be sitting in the back of a 145Ö


also, could be spiritÖ.

737-700 with no leg room isn't that grand

Kinda like the neighbors growing skeeters in their yard. No easy way to get the message across and have everyone feel ok about it.

How does one grow skeeters in their yard?

Leave a container open so it collects rain. Then wait.

This one actually looks much better:

Anyway you look at it, the clean cockpit is the shiz.

To me it looks unfinished. Not done till the cables are run!

Update: just ordered subs, which will be consumed during the Huskies game

That's unfortunate, prostate problems are no joke.

Good weekend of riding. Sundays ride out in Northville was a blast. I had enough juice on the first sprint to attack twice, and still finish with the leaders. Figured me legs would be dead from 2 hard days prior but, nein! On the last climb I pulled all the way to the top and ran out of gas with 50' to go when they attacked. Was great fun ( I tell myself it's fun) reeling them back in before the end of the ride.
. Must be the end of the season as I finally feel like I have some legs under me.
5027 miles for the year so far

Any container. Old car tires are legendary. In my case itís a cheap plastic kiddie pool of stagnant water that hasnít been chlorinated since before Ida came to visit. :notamused:

Love me some White Castles, and Iím fortunate enough to not suffer the GI distress theyíre infamous for. Love their clam strips too, they come out perfect every time.

WC is my occasional guilty indulgence. It was a part of my childhood, so there's a lot of nostalgia there, too (in addition to immunity from the gut bomb effect). When I was a kid, my friends and I would pool our (meager) money together and troop over there for lunch. I still scratch my head that a combo meal costs twice what it would to feed three to five of us as kids.
