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

Oh, my bad. I thought that only started once they got name-names, like Astra or Ion.

Thanks. That has also happened to me, but this one is independent of cage position.

I do know now why y'all hate running so much, and it's not that running is stupid (though I know some wiseass will creatively misquote this to say that - I even bolded it for convenience). Cycling specifically tightens the knees and ankles in a way that makes running painful. Restarting now is harder and slower than coming off the dman couch. Going to do it though.

I'm surprised you're surprised, given all the posts I've made about Knoxville Community Band here.

Probably should post this on the show me your cat thread but here's our latest foster, Wybie. He's 9 months old; we just picked him up Friday and will be hosting him until he gets adopted. He's very busy and playful and has already integrated more or less successfully with our resident cats and dogs.

My kid played great, but I wish she was a little less emotional about it at times. It was really enjoyable.

Caterpillar II Update: No longer looks like bird poop. Much larger - it's actually on the same leaf in both pics (it has eaten the other two neighboring leaves), so that should give a sense of scale. It has probably molted a couple times, but we haven't seen it happen and we haven't found any old skins, so it makes me wonder if they eat 'em.

Ah, you're just "no berries" grump?

The strawberry/blackberry pie is a small one (6") that we brought home, but I got a different slice at the shop: they called it CocoChoconut. Imagine if a pecan pie and a 7-layer bar had a baby - that's what it was like. Delicious.

Blue berries, strawberries are fine. But why waste them in a pie?
