I only wear gloves when I don't want to accept the risk of chewing up my hands in case I wreck. Put another way, I always wear gloves when I ride.

Day 5 of of staycation. Up at 5:30. I walked Roscoe, made coffee did some work then drank said coffee. After going to my appointment I will saunter over to Costco for glasses. The rest of the day is open save for ironing those 2 shirts for next week.

Evening activity. DougRNS you should watch this after your appointment with Dr. George tomorrow(?). It's a classic.

I demand more from my entertainment than what that can provide.

Flooding expected tonight, with rain starting this afternoon. Guess I picked a bad day to go back to work.

At least you are not going on tour.

It might wind up being a bottle of Ripple, if anything. :lol:

If I fall, I only shove my hands out when I want to risk chewing up my hands and breaking my collarbone. Put another way, I don't shove my hands out.

I laughed more watching the movie than I do reading your posts.

my best was on a road with a steep incline at a hywy junction. On the way up I shifted down to the small ring, but the derailleur didn't shift due to the massive amount of force I was exerting climbing in the big ring. Near the top of the incline I let up a little on the pressure. The derailleur took that opportunity to throw the chain off to the inside. When that happened all my weight went forward over the bars, which which then flipped full right, and down I went. Left knee onto the spokes of the front wheel, stretching 2 of them so bad I had to loosen the cable on the brake . Broke my shifter, and crankset too.

Epic

LSS is on the hunt for a new coffeemaker, not happy with her current “piece of crap”, her words not mine. We use separate coffee makers, she is fussy about her coffee, and not a French press fan. Likes to start with whole beans. What recommendations do we have on the high end or semi-high end?

At that point, and after a gram of APAP, I was fool enough to do a 20 mi workout on the way to work and it was precipitously downhill from there. ¡Bueno suerte, hermano!

None, but I note the use of "LSS" with approval and mention in passing that I just broke our less fancy French press, which I was using instead of the drip machine because my LSS is out of town.

So far, Arkansas as a state has not impressed me.

I just got back from the office, and walked in to the painters retaping and covering everything. The guy looked at me and said, "You know that bottle of whiskey?" I responded, "Yeah, I'm not getting it am I?"

Would rather have a happy wife.

I don't really do drip, but the Moccamaster Technivorm is supposed to be one of the better machines out there. And then there's St James Hoffman's personal choice -

I am stuck at work and in any case not feeling up to anything too physical. I hope to be better enough to ride tomorrow.

It was a few years ago. They ran out of ambulances, from what I understand. After my wreck, it started to rain, and it didn't cross my mind to ask how the rest of the day went.

The earlier crit which was the 55+ Open.

Sold! I haven't used the auto start function in any brewer, but I just may have to start.

"Work," for me consisted of being a warm, clinically credentialed, body on site to supervise something in the lab, doing some writing, and attending a couple of meetings remotely, I assume you're actually working!

Correct. Seeing patients and stomping out disease!

My long-time bartender friend and her family recently moved from Philly to Fayetteville. They really like it, Her family has owned a lake house about 45 min. away for a long time. She comes back to Philly every other weekend to work. But that won't last forever.
