Addiction 2023.4

Road Cycling ďIt 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.Ē -- Ernest Hemingway

Wow, I don't mind the occasional hoedown but they seem a little too frequent in your neck of the woods. And on a Sunday night? That ain't right.

I was surprised it went on until 12:00. The people who had bands most often were across the street but they moved out a couple weeks ago. Their bands were usually good musicians and they always stopped by 10:00. This Saturday there was another band down the street a bit and while they were loud, there was no thumping bass drum or bass. Very different and focusing on vocals, they were not disruptive and actually had an interesting sound.

was Indy the patient?

Ha, thanks! But the real beast mode is my wife who's called AG around here (Atomic Girl, because she worked out at a gym called Atomic Athlete when I met her) ran a little over 20 yesterday. Hoping to BQ at the San Antonio Rock'n'Roll in a couple weeks. I'm just going to try to finish the half respectably...

Oh is that the origin story for her username? I always assumed she was a nuclear physicist or something like that.

No, EE. I have been in the house while her data (different flavor of EE) was on a call with an actual nuclear power plant diagnosing something. That was fun.

Now there's a proper looking mountain, hopefully this batch of snow doesn't melt.

Man my legs are wrecked after running up those parking garage stairs — 6 stories, X2 yesterday, X1 today.

I think that's about 10 miles from here. 103 mph winds up there seems incredible.
