Anyone wanna pitch in on a racetrack and 100 acres of surrounding farmland? I'm in for a 1/50th share.

Awww, lil cat burrito!

Luckily our cat gets by without nail work. We just have to get her a new cardboard scratch pad every 9 months or so

Storm coming in. The power went out and instantly came back on. Lightning strike.

I'll live on the 100 acres and not have neighbors.

Poor Oscar.

Wonder if Velo Vol will post "that picture" from the Peloton ad.

Took the bike out for a little spin to get the sealant all good and distributed. At first blush, the wheels feel pretty nice. Very smooth. The hub is more subdued than I'd like, though - how is a hub that quiet supposed to herald my approach to the MUPpets?

I've been told to call them back in another four hours, if I haven't heard from them first. Thankfully, I've been given a direct line so that *knock on wood* I don't have to wait in queue for another 15-20 minutes.

I still have hope, but I figure with low expectations, anything good will be like icing on the cake. :)

Chocolate icing?

Yuck. I’d rather drink vodka, but yes.

This woman has lived on islands since she graduated from college: South Caicos, Iceland, Ireland. I see her a couple of weeks a year. Enjoy that daughter of yours.

That includes any sort of football. :(

That's annoying.

The pain comes and goes but I meet with an orthopedic next week to find out what the long-term deal is. In the mean time I bought one of those hanging upside down tables which actually helps a bit.

Probably too much peloton. :innocent:

Glad I check my tires before every ride. This lovely shard of glass was stuck in my front from yesterday’s ride.
