Because I’m fully dressed and waiting on my son to get here so we can go to dinner. Exercise and related activities will have to wait.

Critics out in force today. So it goes.

Had a boring, but peaceful quasi-jog at sunset. Now listening to the organ recital. #VeloVolZen

Can’t not watch it though when it comes on.

#ScaryRabbit

I just watched Donnie Darko on Youtube. With that format, there are comments that suggest possible meanings. One such comment suggests he killed Frank(who was driving the car), went through the portal to the past and then died in her place. Does that help? Another suggests he saw the future through a wormhole and decided not to live it. Yet another suggests he was supposed to die in the first place, when the jet engine landed in his room, but he was out sleepwalking. His not being killed according to plan begins the collapse of the timeline.

One of the best bikes I've ever ridden was my friend's singlespeed Trek Stache with rigid carbon fork and 29 x 2.8 tires. Reasonably light and unbelievable amounts of traction.

Fat tires make up for my lack of skill. Mostly.

My father has a Fuse with 27.5 x 2.8 tires. When he was down here recently he took our rental Intense Sniper T with 29 x 2.3 tires. Despite the extra squish from the shock he still commented on how little traction he felt he had :)

I got the 27.5 x 2.8 tires with 160/150 mm travel bike because I was hoping it would bail me out when my lack of skill set in. Lots of slippery, baked dry stuff around and loose rocks. The thing is great for that but I have more trouble with deep sand than my old bike with 2.3s. If I can keep the power on it's better but sometimes I can't do that.

If it doesn't kill you it makes you stronger.
Note: running/jogging is stupid. You're welcome.

I liked it when I could properly do it.

Kudos.

I've decided to not watch one minute of the Olympics. It will be an easy task.

I will be taking a spin through the city for shopping, etc.

After I drive to the recycling place since the trash guys managed to overlook mine yesterday. You had one job. :notamused:

Our weather is schizoid. Near 50ļ yesterday but a high of 23ļ for today.

big john 02-12-22 08:31 AM

The wind was shaking the house about an hour ago but seems to have calmed some. We planned a ride into a wind prone area. Hoping the calm prevails.
