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

I had some Domino's during the summer, for the first time in ages, and it was fine.

Surely LAJ has similarly dialed up the wattage on his lawn.
The lights in the community garden across from my house have been alive for well over a week.

Thanks. One would think they would get used to the monthly eye injections. But I still get nervous before every appointment. The second one is just a routine quarterly jab in the belly and a Scooby Do bandaid.

Every week I jab in the belly. No band-aid needed.

Yeeeeah, I don't know about that. Considering the reflexes hard-wired in to us to avoid eye damage, getting used to it might be asking a lot.

It wouldn't be hard for me to count those calories. 0 + 0 = 0.

I think instinct takes over when it comes to the eyeball. Getting a hot piece of metal in the can cause what's called a rust ring, and the only way to get it resolved, is with a bad-ass little centrifugal grinder. It's amazing how still one can keep the eyeball as that thing approaches.

Do well today.
