Addiction 2022.2

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

Yep, Power Roads. I’m just glad we had one more in stock so I could still ride.

Tomorrow is my discogram diagnostic procedure. It is designed to provoke pain. If it's painful which I'm sure it will be, then finally I'll know the disc is bad. The prize is getting a disc replacement. The upside is I can finally get on the road to recovery. The downside is it will get worse (post op recovery) before it gets better. I still have to choose the neurosurgeon to do the replacement. I want to be on the other side of this nightmare really ******* bad. That's my story.

Relax, I'm not sure anyone will read it given the boring subject matter.

Here's some proto disco to get your feet moving.
