Good point but he has a purple star so he is at a higher level than us mortals. Possibly.

If not too hot, then after work a couple of times a week. Otherwise, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. I'm generally taking Fridays off these days. Monday through Thursday are still full work days from 8:00 to 6:00 for the most part.

Lately, it's just been too hot for an evening ride. Needs to be no more than 95 at 6:00 for that to be worthwhile.

When I was working I liked to go out on Wednesdays around 6:00 except during standard time when it got dark at 5:00. I would try to leave early on the short days but that got harder as the pressure went up at the job. Even an hour during the week makes a difference and I always felt good once on the bike, even if I was wiped out from work.

Same here. My summer evening rides are only about 15-20 miles, sometimes even less depending on circumstances. I try for Tuesday and Thursday evenings when I can.

I don't ride in the dark as I'm not set up for it and don't really feel comfortable out at night.

I do get to set my own work hours, but I also have to be available to clients and others that I interact with.

It's my boss.

So I answer it expecting something bad.

No no, it's a promotion (Software Engineer III from II) and a 25% raise. I guess I need to be less grumpy for a while.

Nice! Congrats!

You must really have to piss off a mod or do something really inflammatory to get a ban.

Then of course there was the famous horsie pic, can’t unsee that one…

One of my favorite movies and based on a real tunnel escape.

Youre doing it wrong. You should start with STARE.

The banned list doesn't always get updated. The guy who tours a lot is out, don't know how long.

I know we are not supposed to discuss the details of such matters in the open forums, but WTF?

In other news....

Last night's moonflower is already droopy. Apparently each bloom is only for one day (or in this case, one night....hence the name MOONflower).

Oh, and 4/6 on Wordle.

A day lengthy thing. Plant in June or July next time. Day length is everything.

Going on three weeks of daily afternoon thunderstorms. The streets of Tixkokob are a series of lakes.

Tough night after the injection yesterday. Fever and chills, but feeling better now.
Lowell George was a big loss.
Sad!
