You don't have a snow umbrella and skirt?

It's actually a large mural that depicts four seasons - the pic is between two of them. Here's a snip from google street view -

Anything is possible. But I doubt it.

The snow is falling straight down but the wind is blowing her hair and the umbrella's not protecting her from either.

Artistic license. Prolly.

Went swimming after my ride today. Just did two laps, don't wanna overdo it so early in the season. It was a little chilly but I've been swimming in a number of colder rivers, irrigation ditches, lakes and ocean beaches.

Also, she doesn't have feet.

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

Bonjour!

Heathpack 04-19-20 03:35 PM

Updates:
1. I have ridden my bike the past four days in a row. I’m tired.
2. This weekend’s baking: four loaves whole wheat bread, 2.5 dozen snickerdoodles, 1 batch cinnamon rolls.
3. I have signed up for Instacart and I’m digging it. My Costco order will arrive imminently.
4. We have been eating too much homemade pizza. In the Uuni portable wood fired pizza oven.

Why doesn't she point her umbrella into the wind so it doesn't break?

Velo Vol 04-19-20 03:36 PM

Time for a milestone ride.

Duh because her umbrella is in spring.

Also, an old friend of Mr H just texted him a pic he found while cleaning out his closet. It’s a pic of Mr H on the lower slopes of Mauna Kea with his hang glider in the back ground. He is posing with two military police officers.

So of course I ask: ???

Oh that’s from the time I flew my hang glider from the top of a volcano and mistakenly flew into a military live fire exercise. Whoops, munitions, attack helicopters flying below me, the MPs arrived before my ride got there to pick me up.

!!!

The MPs are smiling. Mr H is a skinny college kid.

Well and the funny thing is, over in tri-land, the dropped stays are seen as mandatory now and the bikes that don't have it are mocked. The Felt IA is seen as much more advanced than the Cervelo P. Funny thing is, as [MENTION=185471]WhyFi[/MENTION] mentioned, it supposedly improves comfort and handling, but... the P is regarded as more comfortable and neutral-handling, for whatever that consensus is worth.

I'm just fine either way. It does slightly ding that bike on the old-man aesthetic, though.

Would still hit it.

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

You should instruct her.

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.

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
