Not for the flu. And for vaccinated people, now the risk is minimal that any one there will contract anything worse than a flu-level type illness.

No, but I can watch plenty of other people doing it, apart from the Olympics.

I assigned weirdness to the wrong character, then.

You weren't being fair to the dog. She deserves better.

Correct

Did you see people dressed in helmets and padding knocking people over that were carrying packages?

Where, apart from the Olympics, have you ever seen two people synchronized diving? It's not an NCAA sport.

So you don't mind becoming Typhoid Mary. Good to know.

You guys had a Specialized battle too???!!!???

Mojo31 07-29-21 04:57 PM

Looks like you schooled someone.

WhyFi 07-29-21 05:18 PM

I've gotten together with three former or current Addicts. None were leery of pics. DougRNS must have something to hide. Witness protection, prolly.

Never more than one at a time, though. Three Addicts in one place? That would be worlds colliding.

That's some seatpost there!

Velo Vol 07-29-21 06:50 PM

Have you ever seen two or more people synchronize diving, outside of the Olympics?

I'm not going to spread the virus around, because I don't mingle with many people. Nor would I, if I was in a group of vaccinated people. That's why we have vaccines.

It is suspicious.

Oh boy. I met the secretive DougRNS. I am only authorized to disclosed limited information, but he did give me a tyre and showed me Sharpsville cucumbers. He also lives in Cobb County, or at least he drives a auto registered there.

Summary of meet up:
We met at an undisclosed location discussing undisclosed topics for an undisclosed period of time. Then we departed for undisclosed destinations.

Philly got spared the storms for the most part, but a couple of tornadoes touched down in the region.

Somebody else does that, too. Giant, IIRC.

Just saw that in the searches. All things considered - including that its tough to find cycling stuff, I should just buy a new bike. Open to suggestions.

We met at the Papermill La Quita Inn. Doug ? (last name unknown) admitted that his electric lawnmower isn't cutting it.

Sad.
