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 considered going this morning, but it was 11 with a wind chill of -1. Friday looks good though

Nope.

That reminds me--we haven't gotten a CD for the last Christmas concert.

Part of Mrs. rjones28's studio remodeling project is to gather the CDs into one place. Primary storage was in the studio space (mostly). The media library shelving can currently handle about 20 feet of CDs. Hope it's enough.

Looks like you might get less snow than we city mice. All depends on how far east it says. Models showing the shore getting the worst, regardless of most likely tracks.

Mrs. rjones28 is a composer, so I think the two of you have different creative requirements.

I carried the cane with me on this morning's dog walk, but did not use it.
Yesterday's dumb potato comment was directed mainly at the chiropractor I saw in San Cristobal de las Casas. He just couldn't wrap his head around the possibility the "The Bed" generically speaking could be the problem. He was all about what kind of bed--soft, hard, etc. I lost all patience with him and, if I hadn't been in such bad shape, might have walked. That's the thing about chiropractor's offices. If you're there at all it's because of a severe need.
I am still the only one who thinks(knows)that the hammock, in and of itself, can be a curative tool

I discovered a chipped tooth yesterday morning, and made a dentist appt. Then fell ill with cold symptoms in the night. I consumed herbal tincture throughout and improved, thus ruling out Covid. Today I plan to consume large quantities of vitamin C, and more tincture in the hope of being symptom free 26 hours from now.

My patience should be lauded even for almost getting halfway through that noise.

That's a lot of CDs. I might have that many cassette tapes. I haven't tossed them because some of that stuff hasn't been replaced digitally. Some of the disco mixes I taped off the radio are irreplaceable.

As of last night's forecast, none of that was even over land yet, which might change a lot.

Our cassette tape collection has dwindled to the sized of a travel case. Wore them out and replaced them with CDs or digital downloads over the years.
