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

I really hope there's some dirt left to hold the grass seed when I get back. 🙏

Never even threatened to rain.

No snake sighting this week. Only a couple chipmunks and a few robins.

Leaves are falling off the trees. The Season of Death (autumn) is nigh.

5. Couple drove it off using bear spray, and it has not been seen since.

Details emerging in fatal Ovando grizzly bear attack (kpax.com)

Have to wonder whether camping in town instilled a false sense of security.
Grizzly bears are bad. Black bears are good. Ursus americanus!

The SportWagen is back home with clean intake valves.

Cost a little less than a Claris-level aluminum road bike.

One of the latter recently attacked a young girl as she slept in a hammock at a backcountry campsite in Smoky NP. Not good.

While they have the similar markings, the males have much more prominent yellow spots on the wings and the females have much more prominent blue on the tails.

But non-zero, so maybe instead of "Grizzly bears bad, black bears good" it should be "Grizzly bears bad, black bears less bad."

Mrs GeneJockey was a teacher for a couple years early in our marriage. One of her students was a descendant of Samuel FB Morse.

As long as it was the red can brake clean. The green can stuff can barely be called "clean".
