I did not think today’s ride was hard, but even so, after lunch, I settled down to snuggle Jackie, and somehow fell asleep for a 30 minute nap. Mrs datlas took a picture so there is evidence:

Cats are very helpful for naps.

Oh, one of my club mates has a custom Jaegher bike, stainless steel but painted frame, with a 1x12 and the fancy 2 speed Classified rear hub option. I noticed it looks like it could fit me, so I suggested we could swap bikes sometime.

It looks beautiful, I did not ask the price but I suspect it’s 5-figures.

I read his book "I Never Played the Game". It was interesting.

Back in the 80s, SCTV did a sketch "Battle of the PBS Stars", with Eugene Levy doing Howard Cosell, calling a boxing match between Mr. Rogers (Martin Short) and Julia Child (John Candy).

Is your shirt a reference to your body position or untrue statements?

:lol:

Actually, I purposefully am wearing a Phillies shirt today, it's a strategic move.

I always like to wear old comfy tee shirts, but we are going out to dinner to a semi-nice Japanese restaurant tonight for mrs datlas :bday: and it seems that uptight people will give me a bit more latitude on the unspoken dress code if I am supporting the local baseball team.

They got their butts reamed by Atlanta last night. 13-1.

indyfabz 08-03-22 03:28 PM

Good news=My Giro Helios is ready for pickup at the REI near my NJ office, where I just happen to be working tomorrow.

Bad new=After I ordered it my ex told me she bought one and the chin strap sucks.

We shall see. At least I can try it on and get my 💰 back if I donít like it.

Virginia trip is evolving. Leaning towards Charlottesville now. Stay tuned.

Harrisonburg was lovely when we stopped while en route Albany > Austin, so I assume C'ville is also beautiful.

Spent about 2 hours replacing the water pump and belt in my truck last night/this morning.

After letting the RTV on the gasket cure for a while I did a leak check. Everything seemed happy until I let it come up to temp and sit there for a while, then gave it a bit of throttle up to around 4k. Felt a lot of roughness and steam started pouring out of the hood. Pump housing cracked, belt is shredded, and now I get to worry there is something else wrong.

Cars are so stupid.
