For some strange reason, some people keep little rodents as pets. Regardless, small birds and rodents are prey for cats, so I couldn't hold it against them.

They had no issue eating them here. We needed to thin the heard, and they made for good eatin' for some folks in need.

Went to my office to pack but left before i finished because I looked down to the street and saw that I had a parking ticket for being in a 20 min. loading zone.
Stopped by Whole Foods for some wine and a burrito for lunch then took a nap with kitty.
Woke up and cooked chicken breasts with Dijon and made an arugula salad.
A friend stopped by to drop off some things, including a popular cat toy which Stephen now loves. We chatted for a while at a safe distance.
Then I watched some more episodes of the first season of The Wire.

My R3 certainly came with a chain stay protector - it's hard plastic with adhesive backing, though; wouldn't be confused with tape.

The top two look like behind the lever bar tape chunks and the bottom two look like bar tape finishing tape. The middle one could be chainstay protection.

Well until I can get the above mentioned tape, I think Iíll put some painters tape in that area so it doesnít ruin the finish.

The good news is that what you're seeing right now is most likely just some light grit that'll wipe away; it's not likely that any damage has been done.

I was gunna mount my cycling computer to the chain stay and fork with zip ties, and reason for not doing this?

Also with regards to the chain stay, It came like Whyfiís R3, itís plastic.

Have no fear; less than an hour later QA reported another "bug" that is working as designed and hasn't changed in six years. We did have to spend four collective hours proving it, though.

QA was better when I was on that team.

My R2 definitely came with a sheet of clear plastic frame protectors. I'd rather not be clear though - I've never had a mechanic who didn't get a fingerprint under one anyway.

I can understand rodents better than spiders and snakes. At least rodents can feel affection - a "pet" tarantula cannot. It's not a pet, it's a captive.

In the end, I was too tired for a documentary last night so we watched Westworld. I was too tired for that too apparently because I fell asleep while Mr H watched it and am more confused than ever now.

The might minis chased some Canadian geese off at the park this morning, Gutsy really since the geese outweigh the dogs. Hope we don't get cited for menacing a protected species.

Ya know, Mo, I have come far enough that I could ride that bike (if it was bigger). I haven't yet come to grips with crabon wheels.
Hot

Overall, sounds like a good life.

Maybe for 1-2 days, tops. If pain not resolving you need to see your hand specialist.

I see her every third day, to have the dressing changed. As I was getting ready to be released from the hospital, I asked my surgeon for a plaster cast (they are still common here). That was when he informed me of the three day plan, and the near complete non-activity plan.

yep, just lick your thumb and rub it a bit, and it'll be like brand new.

:D At least the top tube is straight.

However, the thing is so much more fun, responsive, and measurably fast than my updated classic, that I would ride it if it had a banana seat and streamers.
