Addiction LXXIX

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

Neither do I , and I haven't done it in years. I worked for a painter for a couple days once when I was unemployed. I couldn't do it. No way.

If I was getting paid I could handle it. But we’re on a time crunch. And the preparation to roll takes forever. You can’t rush it.

I'd go hungry. I'd prefer some of the factory jobs I've had, and they sucked.

I like the Park Tool bathtub mat. Can I get one at Bed, Bath, and Beyond?

Coffee is brewing and I am awaiting daybreak to ride. It’s a cool 58F out, may need to dig out my gilet vest.

Slept like a rock. The weather was supposed to break, but 71* and 94% humidity isn't that.

Fortunately I have less on the docket than @datlas.

My wife has had a close exposure to a person who has tested positive to CV-19 with flu like symptoms. This was a week ago and my wife wasn’t notified until last night. So, off to a testing facility this AM. Neither of us has symptoms though we both have had light headaches which is unusual for both of us. I have a chest ache but this is common for me during hay fever season.

It's not 6:00 yet but it's close to 80 degrees. Haven't decided what ride to do, shocking, I know. Gotta figure it out before the sun shows up.

Correct. The coffee device is my stainless travel mug which had coffee from home in it at the time.
