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

Got my first flat on the Legnano, luckily it deflated after I'd gotten back home. Whew.

It’s located on the bedroom door and is referred to as a lock.

Bedroom door is closed. Cat meows loudly at the door and claws at it, which is impossible to sleep through. After Heidi goes to LA next month, we may consider sending the cat to the dungeon for the evening.

My last cat was in 1980-something. I'm a dog guy now, much more useful.
