Addiction 2021.1

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

Got my shopping done this morning when it was sunny. High, thin clouds have moved in, and the wind has picked up.
If it's going to be cold, there had better be snow.

I guess that's why the awesome shovel easily disassembles and fits in a small area.
Crisis averted!
Stuff him in the back. Problem solved, plus, with any luck, being cramped will make him short of breath and less talkative.

I believe that a proper Mid Life Crisis requires a convertible, ideally a red one. I don't think the Supra is available as a convertible.

I have been interviewing tunners to put a Dyno tune on the firebird. I think I may have the proper one selected. I just don't want to drive the car in this crap weather especially with the salt on the roads.
But I may have to. It'll be nice to get that out of the way.

They were going to make it a t top, but there was concern it might bring paul walker back to life.

Station wagons don't count as mid-life-crisis cars.

No one is offering me money to get vaccinated. Or even vaccine, for that matter.
