Addiction 2021.2

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

Ugh, I don't know how I'm going to cope with this.
Not a reliable indicator. My 22yo daughter also sings along to that song.

Finally!

Change of address request to our new apartment submitted.

Maybe next week I can actually start living again.We got a little 800sqft 1bed/1bath apartment in the oldest neighborhood in Greenville. Going to take some adjusting and serious downsizing, but Mrs. abshipp is thrilled so I'm happy too

Headwinds were brutal, even on an e-bike, gusty crosswinds on one of the descents was "exciting".

Next thing you know, you'll be discussing whether Steely Dan is overrated.

I heard recently from @datlas which has prompted me to post: Puppy Love herself has had a puppy! Well, two actually but one died. It was a complicated pregnancy in which she developed an inguinal hernia, a portion of her uterus was in the hernia and she fertilized an egg in the herniated portion of the uterus. For a little while had an embryo growing in the hernia but that embryo was eventually resorbed. So she had two puppies via csection (the csection was necessitated by the hernia), the one died at 6 days of age after 48hr of at-home neonatal ICU care by yourself truly. Oxygen, fluids, antibiotics, tube feedings. Tried really hard but the boy didn’t make it.

The girl puppy is named Smoke and she’s 16 days old today. She’s a hearty little thing. So cute. She just opened her eyes yesterday.










Oh my...

Only Fleetwood Mac song worth a **** is Tusk, and that's only because there's a marching band involved.

While we're at it, I like subtle kit - no team wear, fan wear, etc.
What if you're on the team?
