Thanks. Pics will come when it's all done. The shower is to die for; it looks like a spa.

You should instruct her.

Santa del Muerto

Thanks for asking. As long as I do absolutely nothing more than hang in the hammock, getting up only to pee or get something to eat, it does well. Even trying to open a zip-loc bag is painful. The doc was not exagerating when he gave me those instructions. He also told me that re-attaching fingers is one of their most common surgeries. Mine was the second that day. And the man who occupied my bed, ahead of me, had the same injury. The nurses were very familiar with it.
Valladolid, unfortunately, has gone to mega tourism. It's really sad to see. Such a nice town.

She is between the two.
The umbrella is for spring.
The snow skirt is for winter.

#yourewelcome

I saw the skirt and figured she's wearing ice skates

We are making homemade pizza for dinner. No wood fired oven, sad!

But we do have a TT/Tri bike pizza cutter:

Motos, Peugeots,... One of the very first pieces of advice I received over in C&V was to stay far away from French bikes. Threadings and sizes I suppose were the reasons. Nice bikes that I've never tried. I went Japanese and American instead.
Nice bike
My size

Wow I find that hard to believe. It seemed like noweheretown when we stopped by to look at the art.

Must be pizza night in Addiction. Heading out to pick up some professionally-made pizza.

He would have to find her Strava profile, first.

Pretty sweet. I like the I like you photo.

Richmond Va is full of these, not so much here.

"I Like You" is evidently a store. I have no idea of what they sell.

I could go for some Richmond beers.

especially the first one

Thanks!

I like them all just fine, but the second one, with all of the stars, pulls at my heart strings. That's outside of First Avenue, a concert venue that shot to prominence with the rise of Prince (it was his home base and the club in Purple Rain). All of the stars are acts that have played First Ave - an act will occasionally get covered up in favor of another, but Prince will be there as long as the building stands, I think.

Everybody has to be a critic. :rolleyes:

Excellent. :lol:

Seeds, you've been on fire lately in the humor category. :thumb:

Got out for a second ride on the day, this time with the kids; the boy riding his bike, the girl in the Burley. 11 miles, around a couple of the neighborhood lakes. I was impressed with both: the boy for his endurance, the girl for not going bat**** crazy in the trailer.

A Scottish acquaintance posted today that he put shorts on today for the first time since the lockdown and somebody must have shrunk them. :)
