Is that an e-bike? I could understand some disdain...

Or maybe they are just worried about the kid smashing his face into the bars?

Called it.

Enhance your calm, WhyFi.

One of those films I thought I would hate, but I like it.

In any event, as a single guy, I have thought about the issue. Interestingly, saw a piece on the local news the other day saying at least one on line dating app has seen a spike in business. Probably people looking for virtual connections and hoping for a better future.

antidentite!

I mean, I've tried it before, but just goofing around on basically flat ground. Super sketchy even then.

Why are there bananas in your garage?

:lol: It's a good, shut-your-brain-off action flick.


...that predicted the future. :eek:


...and I was smitten with Sandra at the time.

Not surprising. People are probably looking for emotional intimacy even more right about now.

I think they're going to have to make banana bread with those by the time the quarantine is up.

Yes. XR31, CX-Ray spokes, and American Classic hubs. I can honestly say I built them, and haven't messed with them since. I was happy with that, even though it takes me like 10 times longer than a real wheelbuilder.

If you built wheels, you are a real wheelbuilderer. Just a slow one.

Not allowed in house for a few days. Mrs datlas’ rule.

Well right, and I wouldn't at all. I just think it's a silly sort of thing to worry about.

ls01 04-03-20 03:54 PM

I'm in quarantine land for 2 weeks, technicly on 24 hour call till monday morning. Then on call 6:30 to 3:00. Emergency only.
I could use a beer. Preferably the 6th or 7th one, but I have to refrain.
This has been a long 2 weeks.

At the time? Iíd still have her baby.

Last time I was riding in Italy (2013) we stopped at a villa in the Prosecco region for coffee and pastries. There were photos of her on the wall taken during her stay there.

It's safest to assume they are.

I presume they are innocent until it's proven they are guilty.

Good point. I feel a lot better.

Velo Vol 04-03-20 04:31 PM

Does the fact that I mailed a check rather than pay online with an added $3.89 "convenience fee" mean I'm cheap? Or thrifty?

You can't just dunk them in 1:5 bleach for a moment?

People are going to be thinking twice about hugs and handshakes for a long time. Sex, I seem to remember being somewhat harder to resist.

Why not just don't bring the packaging into the house and wash your hands when you're done. And I'm the phobic one in our house.

I had the same thought, but I figured Iíd wait for you to come along and ask.
