Had a long ride today, route suggested by Heathpack, now going for a walk from Santa Monica to Venice Beach. Here is the public restroom at Venice.

Hey, I don't make the rules.

LA has a bunch of scooters lying around all over the place (apparently you rent them), near USC there was one parked across the sidewalk and I was not yet scooter-aware and I tripped over the ****ing thing. No major injury but I got some road rash on my knee, about the size of a quarter. I have since become much more scooter-alert. People who park them irresponsibly should be fined.

Welp, we survived our first tropical storm with wind involved. The power was on about half the time but is out now. They're telling us we should expect heavy rain through the weekend. We were closer to the eye this time, and as such had stronger winds. At the eye it was steady at 65mph. We probably had 40mph with higher gusts.

Guess where we went yesterday!!

I saw the radar earlier and thought of you. Glad all ok.

My wife requires me to wear a full beard, and I don't complain. Most of it is still red, but it has grey patches on the chin.

Shaved skin scratchy when lights are low, as it were? That's what LSS liked about me with a...beaver.

No, she just prefers to look at a bearded face.

Duh, yes, your wife.

Beards don't do a thing for me. 😜

And I passed through your neck of the woods today. Knowing that you were in CA, I did not wave.

It's for you to watch now.

This kind of confirms my point from earlier. Guy are generally going to be bearded or shaved depending upon the preference of the lady with whom we want to get close to.

Beards are dumb. Surely we've already established that here.

Because scraping your face with a sharp blade every morning makes so much more sense.

Not shaving saves time every morning. Time that can be spent on more important activities, like drinking coffee.
