Addiction 2021.3

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

Daughter and husband are coming from Iceland to stay with us next week for an indeterminate amount of time while she gets ready to move to Seattle. Wife will be starting radiation treatment and and wanting desperately to get back behind the wheel of her boat. Probably not wise to commit to anything, but let me know.

Oh yeah, that's a good one, reminds me of the little lady's requested drop-in on Vancouver, USA on the way from Wyoming to Phoenix.

So you're saying that you don't have much going on?

I have a feeling that I'm not going to be able to plan too much "me time" in advance, but yeah, I'll see what's what.

I wasn't terribly thrilled about the stop, but then I realized that I'd still have my bike in the car, too... that got me thinking about a silver lining of spending the day on a spin through the city for old times sake.

...and then my wife informed me that she'd invited a couple of our old neighbors, thus committing me to the gathering. *sigh*

You need to if they have the kangaroo leather. They're quite delicious.
