Floral or plain?

Depends. Do you want to get beat up?

Exciting day yesterday. My shower head broke off and sprayed water all over one of the walls. Ordered a new one from Ace. About to go pick it up at the local hardware store.

Managed to snag a nice bronzino, which I ate last night, a pompano, which I am going to cook tonight, a few nice chicken breasts and some monk fish filets.

Seriously? We've been bombarded with forecasts of 6" or more for two days. We got virtually nothing but rain.

If it was I certainly didn't see anything about it. I look at the 10-day forecast every single day and didn't see anything :foo:

I went with plain.

Nope. See above.

Ugh. And to think that I helped you plan a handlebar bag purchase.

To be fair, it's more a potential handlebar purchase...

I've got the bag already :D

Maybe it was originally to be south of you and they didn't sensationalize it like they did down here. Anyway, it went north of us and all we got was nuisance rain and you got our snow.

While you’re all getting snow, down here it turned warm and humid again. The same workout from Wednesday was noticeably sweatier.

datlas 04-17-20 10:02 AM

It was below freezing this morning. I can't ride anyway, too much telemedicine work to do.

There may be some branching of neighboring nerves into the denervated area, but mainly the cut nerves have to die back to the spinal cord in the neck and regrow down to the finger at about 1 mm/day. Problem is when they get to the scar where the nerve sheaths end. Then they will have to find their way to the right place on their own, which isn’t always successful.

Well, as luck would have it, the finger wasn't cut all the way off. There is a small piece of original, intact skin.

Doesn't matter. Nerves were severed.

Those are some pricey bags. I have an Ostrich F104 that I got used, for $50. Unwaxed. Maybe that is the difference. Technically not a handlebar bag.

For breakfast, the little lady made a Dutch Baby, and I cooked up some bacon and cut up a fresh pineapple. Cafe Bustelo to wash it down. I think my foot gash might be healed enough for riding. Gonna be a good day!

Any snow in the valley?

Currently 55° at 6900' elevation. Much hotter down here at 1200'. Might go swimming later.

I'm at 980ish'.

The kitties in this South African national park are pretty stoked about it's closure

Strange encounter on road this morning.

I am overtaken by a rider who greets me in an antipodean accent and notes my absence of water bottles. Our subsequent exchange was as follows:

Rider: Here, tyke wonna moyn!

Me: Like I would drink your water?

Rider: Ow royt, COW-VID. I got sow minny otha voyruses, one maw izzn gunna mike any difference!

Me: Well, let's not have sex today, then.

Rider: Good idea!

At which point we came to a crossing, I thanked him for his concern, and we went our separate ways. I have no doubt he would have kept chatting at barely arm's length if I'd chosen to stay with him.

Turns out to be a former pro and local cycling celeb. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nicholas_P._Clark

Should I kudos him?

You should Strava-stalk him, for sure!

datlas 04-17-20 12:08 PM

BTW I noticed there is a pro young woman Columbian on some of my Zwift rides, and I also see she sometimes has been riding in Knoxville.

Maybe we could fix her up with our own Velo Vol ?

My assumption when I saw that picture was that there was a lake or a fair sized, productive river nearby, because it would be exceptionally reckless for a pair of eagles to build a nest in the arid heart of the desert. Finding dead critters to scavenge now and then has got to be a crap shoot in the desert.

Going for a Flintstones vibe.

When I started up to Logan Pass in Glacier in 2017 most of the road was still closed to cars. Not long after I passed the closure point I started seeing piles of bear scat of various ages. One was quite fresh. They bears were obviously enjoying the absence of traffic. Shame the road opened to cars may an hour later.

It's the least we can do!

They are expensive. Fully custom if you want it, though, and very small operations. Waxwing is one guy, and I think Ruthworks might have two people.

I looked at the F104 a while ago. Looks like a nice bag, I just wanted the flap to open up on the other side.

I currently have a waxed canvas Acorn and a green Swift Industries Ozette
