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 think this may be my first Thanksgiving ever away from my relatives.

I'm a little homesick for sure, but then again for the last 4 years the day has been incredibly busy. Sometimes three separate houses to visit.

Spouse has to work for a few hours tomorrow, so the plan is a bike ride and a relaxing day off of work.

Sounds pretty nice to me

I happen to love Pavlova. It's an interesting treat, with textures that are enjoyable. I do find it odd it's being served in the middle of winter though. (Yes Vol, I know it's still Autumn)

I’m too lazy. Even at home.

Back in ‘00 I went 5 days without a shower or shaving whilst touring. Finally checked into a motel​​​​​​. Frightened the desk clerk. After I cleaned up and walked out, the young girl who was cleaning the parking lot said “You look like a completely different person.”

Little girl woke up vomiting, so I guess it it's a good thing that we'd decided to stay home for Thanksgiving; it at least gave us the opportunity to get together the provisions for a (lower effort) Thanksgiving-esque dinner.

She must have read some of @Velo Vol's posts. Here's to a speedy recovery.

Lol. A woodworking magazine pairs with various tool manufacturers for a daily sign-up/drawings between Thanksgiving and Christmas. They sent out the link for the first sign-up today, but the person workin' the website flubbed the date - it looks like I'll need to wait 18,180 years for my crack at the square -
