Thanks to the Covid, this calendar year will be my first without boarding an airplane in 20 years.My flight anxiety plays out as trying my best to get an aisle seat.

I don't have flight anxiety. I have airport annoyance.

From the sound of the engine, I think he went back to a residential area near by. I let the cops know. Dude hit what I think was about 25 mph.

can't swing a dead cat without hitting a Dick lately

It's bad enough that this house is killing me and AG is ready to move out of town, like to Dripping Springs or Wimberly, to give us a place with more space to the neighbors so I wouldn't be constantly on the verge of a breakdown over noises and everything else. The hope is that in two years she'll be able to telecommute some and either the bank will have given up on making me move to Dallas or I'll just take the severance and do whatever.

The new house is killing you?? Sad! But it's got such a great shower!

Well glad that's over. Cut down 3 interior doors, rebutted them, and repainted the edges and any damage from handling. Only ruined one. Not really but the head gap is larger than I prefer.
I don't know what happened. I hung these doors a couple months ago, and all was well. Now everything is rubbing or wouldn't close at all. Waste of a good Sunday I tell ya.

The shower is great. Unfortunately, we went under contract during lockdown, and the traffic has picked back up and it is LOUD. We're probably going to replace the windows with Serenity Sound Control, but I need quietude. This afternoon I heard the yoga music from the guy next door. Last Sunday evening I heard neighbors discussing a Cadillac while we were going to bed. I need a little ranch. And to AG's point, we can afford it. We'll see how things hash out over the next couple of years and hopefully go to the country.

I mean, what I really want is this:

With guards.

I don't even have airport anxiety. If the outfit that booked my flight (never direct with the airline) has done their job, I can relax throughout. I'm a pretty relaxed joe anyway. Even behind the wheel(though that has taken some effort). All that said, I very much dislike riding a bike with more than one other person around.
And now I must finish overhauling that wheel hub I began yesterday. If I'm on my game I will do the other one too.

It's either that or stock it with gators. Hungry gators.

Some of you know, I monitor morning HRV. I can tell you a day of active sailing the way we do it has the same effect on HRV as a string of threshold workouts, the next morning. I assume itís for different reasons, but big stress, anyway.

I don't know exactly the origins of that rear wheel, but what had at one time in the distant past been grease now has the appearance of felt.

Ok. I Google HRV and am told it's a Honda. I can figure out the h and the r. What is the v?

HRV is Heart Rate Variability.

At least youíre not stuck in a 1100SF townhouse with two kids and 2 dogs weighing a total of 170 pounds between them because you got screwed on a house yet again. Silver linings!!!
