They are the kangaroo leather ones.

​​​​​Super nice shoes, I just can't justify that much money for them.

In other news, do you want to hear the latest battery powered debacle? 51 minutes of fail.

Hilarious. That goes through my head on race day. It works OK :)

Who is that at 0:34? I thought Statler Brothers for a split second but it's not them.

We know.

I'm all about the snappy shoes...

I have a feeling that I'm not going to be able to plan too much "me time" in advance, but yeah, I'll see what's what.



I wasn't terribly thrilled about the stop, but then I realized that I'd still have my bike in the car, too... that got me thinking about a silver lining of spending the day on a spin through the city for old times sake.

...and then my wife informed me that she'd invited a couple of our old neighbors, thus committing me to the gathering. *sigh*

Hey, tell her you’ve planned a side trip to The Nations’s Capital to show the kids and, after an appropriate interval, reveal it was really to go on a three hr. bike ride with an internet rando.

Luckily, I got approved with an organization to pay the monthly co-pay till the end of the year and then I have to be approved again which shouldnít be a problem.

****. Sorry. Glad itís paid for.

Itís under discussion. More realistic is spending a few months there each winter. The legalities of living there permanently are complicated so unlikely to make a permanent move. Everything is on hold now because, you know.

Today’s ride will be steamy and sweaty. There will be an extra water stop at what is likely the most bicycle-friendly rest stop ever.

Thanks. My wife and I have no obligations so the money would be no big deal. I do wonder how financially strapped people manage.

The forecast is very autumnal. I'm sure that 99 will end up being a 109 buy the time we get there though.

That reminds me - there had been some discussion of moving a portion of a VA trip up to DC, mother- and brother-in-law included; they still haven't visited the city in the 15+ years that they've been in VA. We decided against doing that on this summer visit, though, thinking that it might be uncomfortably warm for my mother-in-law. The last I heard, we were going to revisit the idea for the fall or winter.

If that comes to fruition, and I'll advocate for it, I always like visiting DC, I'll bring the bike along and bag off on a day when their sightseeing itinerary isn't of particular interest. Weather permitting, of course.

I've met a few internet randos through another chat group. One is from your area. I'm still alive.

I have a few very good friends and crewmates from SA, including the one who died recently.

Justification is the easy part.

Currently, dark and rainy. I can hear thunder in the distance. Today's my half day at the shop. If this continues, it will be a soggy commute.
