Well, yes and no. At the last minute they decided not to stent the blockages in the bypasses. Not with stents anyways. They decided on a medication based aproach to open the clogs. It gives him options further down the road.
weird of weird , one of the bypasses was absorbed by his body. Its gone completely.
He is @ home taking it easy
Hes a tougher bugger than you would think for 80 years old.

No drive after that. You have to remove the power inverter module to test the windings (a giant pain) but after the first one I knew how to diagnose it enough to convince GM to send out a replacement transmission without taking it apart. Don't tell them, please.

They used to... some of thier new offerings aren't really on the same plane as the older stuff. Just rebranded Chinese junk. Check out, Ave on you tube , he has reviewed a couple of the new ones.

I can tell if it's a bit unruly by the shadow it casts.
I have a painting on my bathroom wall, where one would normally find a mirror.
My clothing choices follow a similar line of thinking. As do, alas, my bikes.

are you a vampire?

Ah reckon so..

Have you looked at him?

I did a 53 mile ride today, and it sucked more than any ride has ever sucked before. My average heart rate was high. I felt like shi...not good. Slow fat and out if shape. I need to get on a program...

In other news, I can see a new crease in my torso where those ribs were likely cracked. Awesome.

I can be the thinner man. Would that work?

On my ride today, I saw another solo cyclist. He passed me and said I look like a climber. So at the next hill of course I dialed it up to 200w and passed him. We chatted for 15 seconds and then I let him go down the hill. I stalked him from Strava, he did 100 miles while I only did 50.

We are getting Indian carry-out for dinner. :bday:

Our wheelbarrow has a flat tire. I pumped it up but it’s leaking at the valve stem. It’s tubeless and the rim hole is 1/2”. I hope that’s an easily found part. Maybe I should find wheelbarrowforums and ask there??

Hmmm. I would have thought a master carpenter such as yourself would have mitered those corners , because endgrain. Likely there will be trim at the corners and I have jumped the gun (shark?)

Edit: Too harsh?
