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

Smile, thank her, wrap them carefully, bring them home, put them in a closet, and forget they're there.

Mrs.GJ's cousins shipped her her grandmother's dishes, after packing them with great care, and presumably paying a fair bit to send them. The box is still on the porch, but covered in a decorative burlap drape....

Serious with a caveat. Only about 98% of the time. Why change what works? Just like the awesome Marigold jacket.

Indeed. But also, for a farmer, it's returning to the soil that has fed his, and thus my, family for... I think sixteen? generations.

Maybe you had been drugged.

Being a thread in a cycling forum, you'd think that it'd be easy to point at a creep that could roll, but I'm having trouble labeling any Addict as a creep.
