End of week, good.
I did a Kroger run on my way home last night and ran into Bonnie there, always a pleasure.
Last night I concocted a zucchini casserole, there seems to a a trend in my cooking of late, it was good but my insistence to use all of my ingredients caused me to have to overcook it.
Struggling with my body, hoping that all gets rectified, as best as possible, in the nearish future.
Though it is supposed to be raining, I am looking forward to seeing some of my old cohorts at a Trees Atlanta plant tomorrow. Itâ€™s been a very long time since I last volunteered, and this is a special â€œOld Timers Dayâ€ edition of planting.
What Paulie didnâ€™t mention was that he ran into me and I had a new short haircut. Itâ€™s fine, perhaps not quite as â€œexpertly cutâ€ as I hoped and a little too short. I let the stylist do what she thought would work for me. But like Barb said, hair will grow back. I hope. (Iâ€™ve got my own list of bodily issues that I need to get checked out…)
Going over to Coffee Beanâ€™s this morning to help him with something on Facebook. If the weather is nice this afternoon I may get outside and exercise, but chores may prevail since Iâ€™ve got a pretty full weekend.
I have a feeling there will be a funny story created by your visit to Beanâ€™s. Oh, beware of the Bean Headlock! ðŸ˜‚
yes – beware of the headlock!
washing my hair is weird- I have so much less hair!
I’ll get used to it – but I need to spend more time on it – all the layers are making it wavier/curlier – I need to try to control it some.
But the short hair feels sooooooo good on my head! So light! So easy to brush! ðŸ™‚
And it looks good too, though I have a well-published bias toward women with short hair. ðŸ™„ðŸ˜‚
ITP Hive Mind:
I’d appreciate recommendations for sourcing replacement bicycle tires for my 10+year-old REI-ish (K2) mountain bike.
Fully 9o% of any riding I’ll do will be on (hazard fraught) pavement, but I’d like the option of knowing if I go “off-road” (John make joke), like unopened Beltline sections, etc. then I could. No actual dirt, unless I just have to.
A decent photo of my “mighty steed”:
Current tire size is 26 x 1.95″, tire maker = “Kenda”, kind of hybrid street/trail.
So where can I get a good deal (I don’t mind ordering online or sourcing locally) for replacement tires/tubes? I’d like to keep the cost of 2 x tires + 2 x replacement tubes under $50-60, $75 tops. For less hassle, I’m will to pay additional for mounting, etc if I go local.
Many thanks es 73 de JG/HamWithCam
Allan may have some 26″ tires in the garage.
none of our bikes have 26″ wheels anymore – I will ask him what we have.
and – it wants me to login to Flickr – guess no picture for me
I am logged in, and informed Ham that his photo is currently set to â€œprivateâ€. Perhaps that will help when he changes it to â€œpublicâ€.
Itâ€™s Friday and no Black Sheep start posted yet? Strange. Iâ€™m hoping one gets posted, and that I will be capable of participating.
Shop local! Go down to L5P and see Outback Bikes. They can fix you up.
Jamming to Mikal Cronin in preparation for his show at The EARL on Monday night.
I know. I know, youâ€™ve never heard of a Mikal Cronin. Thatâ€™s fine. I actually had a concert ticket to see him in Portland, but chose to hang out with the hashers at InterAm instead, and I saw him open for Father John Misty a few years ago over in Athens. I havenâ€™t been this stoked for a show in a couple of years, so NOTHING better keep me from going.
I just bought my ticket. ðŸ¤˜ðŸ»
oh- and everyone keep your fingers crossed -out bench seating is supposed to be done & installed on SUNDAY. Nothing like going down to the wire to have it done by the time my parents get here.
