In my backwards thinking, riding a bike allowed me the right to filter.

I tried to find out. I signed on to my SS account, (the payment came through SS) and there was no mention of it there. I can't look it up on my bank account like I can with a check I write.
I tried to look on the 'net for news of a $1500 stimulus and the only thing I find is about child credit and I don't have any of them.

The obvious answer is to hurry up and buy a new bike.

Of course!

The final, missing part for Mrs. GeneJockey's new bassoon arrived yesterday, but she said it didn't fit. She was mistaken. A little "cork grease" (aka Chapstick), and it fit right in. Then I was so jazzed for her, I put the whole thing together (after lightly greasing the cork), but she was too tired to play it last night. She did spend an hour with it today, though. She seems pretty happy with it, and has not raised a stink about the Litespeed, so I think I'm safe there. The fact that the bassoon was >4 times the price of the Litespeed no doubt helped.

Well done, sir. A happy wife is a good thing.

In my experience, a happy wife does not guarantee that I am happy. However, an unhappy wife will make damn sure I am also unhappy, right along with her.

That would be another way to say it.

Yeah. "Happy wife, happy life" is not as universally true as "UNhappy wife, unhappy life."

I would think if the feds knew enough about them to send me some dough I would have some idea of their existence.

He give me a ticked that I was able to get waived by fixing the problem within 2 weeks.

He just wanted a closer look at your Saturn.

If you don't want the $1500, you can Venmo it to me, and I'll find a use for it.

I do note that this one has the usual riser stem, like so many other Litespeeds I've seen. I checked the 1995 Litespeed catalog for the geometry, though, and given the 168mm headtube length I should be cool with a regular stem. I checked my supplies and I have 2 x 110, 1 x 120, and 1x 130mm quill stem, plus 3 Cinelli Nerve handlebars. And two Turbo saddles, since this comes without one.
