We've been in the 80s, too. I've actually had to mind my hydration on rides. Yesterday, I ran out of water (3 bottles) and Gatorade (1 bottle) and called it quits at 88 miles instead of pushing on to 98 miles.

Should've at least done 96.

I wanted 98 so that I'd hit 1000 for the month with a day to spare. Then I could have taken today off, if I'd wanted to. I mean, I wouldn't have taken the day off, but the option would have been nice.

It was only 88° here also, so I got some yardwork in.

Dug up a bunch of American agave, and transplanted a couple.

I thought it just did that if you punch the gas pedal hard enough.

Modern diesel pickups do not smoke at all. If they emit any visible smoke when revving they fail the Cali emission test.

Strong colors. I remember ordering one of those for daughter’s birthday many years ago and a long discussion of the perfect combo.

Sorry to hear your pup is on the DL. Get well soon.

And yet smoke billows nonetheless.

Mrs datlas fixed the painting to make the cat less generic and look more like Jackie. I think she did a good job.

I'm sure an unspecified individual will find something "wrong" to point out.

I already had a lazy eye and now something else has gone haywire. I can manage. I finally figured out something was wrong over the weekend when I was trying to see if my hair was sticking up on one side and I couldn't focus. It had been bothering me for a bit before I put 2 & 2 together.

First of all, cutting a late September ride short because you only have four bottles of hydration.

Second talking about taking the day off, then immediately saying you weren't going to need it anyway.

Is there an art critic here?

The Mariners are off today but if the Red Sox lose today they are tied for the second wild card. #PlayoffRace

I'm hoping for a Mariners vs Blue Jays wildcard game.

LesterOfPuppets 09-30-21 06:35 PM

Oh, I guess the Braves game started a little bit ago, think I'll check it out for a bit.

Free baseball.

It's going to be a dog fight for the wildcard.
