Addiction 2021.4

Notices
Road Cycling It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. -- Ernest Hemingway

They must teach it in journalism school, apparently having given up on teaching affect/effect usage years ago

What? Miranda rights?

Oooh yeah, it doesn't care for that at all. Looks like 5 question marks gets converted to 10 asterisks, I found that interesting.

There are also cougars from time-to-time, but that's something different.
I've never seen a bobcat in the wild. Then again, I don't spend much time in the boondocks or other strange places.

I haven't suffered LPLO for at least a week. I credit a healthy diet and positive outlook.

The local bar I have been going to since 1992 has never taken cards. Cash only.

There's a feral cat living around the office. A woman leaves it food there, which I get. She usually puts a can of food on top of dry food, which I don't get.

Especially during the summer, what a mess. SMH.

That park is in the middle of DFW. Ten minutes from the Cowboys stadium.
