He gave up cycling for walking with his wife. Not a bad ending.

3 km on foot and 18 km pedaling yesterday.
I had a bit of an energy burst this afternoon, and stayed busy enough throughout the day, that I missed the morning session of floor exercises.
I was in love with the bike as soon as I was able to ride, and my dad told me he was the same. In my 20s and early thirties I was a runner/cyclist/softballer/frisbee head. My activity level tailed off after that. At the moment I'm reduced to walking, with the occasional ride.
Sad!

OK, thanks. Now I can see what’s going on, I think!

Does it have the big V4?

It's not a lot bigger than the battery.

Yeah I saw the listing. Bidding is getting close to $20K.

Non-Porsche ass of the day, only $4000 in Scottsbluff, they say she runs and drives...
The cats are going to miss that car :)

I actually looked at plane tickets to Scottsbluff. Who knows how many days it would take me to drive that thing down here though.

More like drive it for a bit, then wait for a tow truck, then rent a car to drive home

I was in Dallas with my son yesterday, and driving on a road thru Highland Park. In front of us at a light was a Bentley Coupe. In front of that was a $1 million Ferrari SF90 Stradale. I was the peasant driving a Jeep.

A guy I worked with buys and sells old cars all over the country. He said there are services that will inspect the car for you and you can get a car shipped more reasonably if you are willing to wait for a carrier to be in the area, which could take weeks or even months.
He also has a friend with a diesel pick up and a car trailer and sometimes they buy a car together and go get it.

The new coffee grinder showed up today, but too late for more shots of espresso. I had wanted either a silver or black model, but they were offering a discount on red, so that's what I'd ordered (the colored decal is supposedly easy to remove, leaving you with the natural aluminum finish). I was pleasantly surprised, then, when I opened the box and pulled out a black grinder. :bday:

I may just get out of bed at 5:30 tomorrow to put it through its paces. :D

I'm sure it's good, but I know it can't top this hotel room coffee.

I don't know how they get away with calling that stuff coffee.

What kind of gas do you put in those old cars? Won't the new fangled stuff burn the valves?

For those I just use an energy shot. Sad coffee is just too sad.
