Historians won’t credit my assertion when they prove that 2016 was the windiest year in recorded history.
It was perhaps the windiest LEAF that I have ever attended, with gusts knocking over poorly-secured tents and pavilions, making it downright chilly at times.
As always much fun was had, and I am suffering the affects of grass, dust, and chill, allergies today; most noticeably my nose is running like a leaky faucet.
My commute home wasn’t the greatest, lasting at least an hour longer than the one performed by the Raleigh Royalty. I encountered an accident on I-64, and two slowdowns on I-85, before pulling off for dinner and then taking back roads to get me to 316.
After taking a shower, my first since Friday, I nestled into bed for an all-too-short sleep.
Shitty Photo Taker
I think I’ve lost the talent for taking photos, especially with an iPhone. I tried to shoot things on a couple of occasions but am not satisfied with the outcome.
At one point I attempted to take a couple of photos with the Nikon V1, but by the time I got it out of the bag and was ready to shoot I lost my brilliant light. Blerg!
Wunderbar Werder Bremen!
My adopted German soccer league team, Werder Bremen, avoided league relegation this past weekend by winning their final game of the season, against the team that was ranked one point ahead of them in the standings (“table” in soccer vernacular). If Werder Bremen had either lost, or even tied with Eintracht Frankfurt they would have been up for relegation. And as I look at the game recap they scored the lone goal of the game in the 88th minute of a 90-minute (excluding stoppage time) game.
One Ride This Week?
If the weather folks are correct about the amount of rain that will occur this week, and we know how well they’ve done in the past, then tonight’s ride might be the only outdoor ride that I’ll get this week. Have to keep the pedals turning…
Short blog today because I’m behind the 8-ball here at work.
