A little Tuesday morning leftovers…

Over the weekend I learned that I could assign a charity to receive money from Kroger every time I shop there. I saw that Trees Atlanta was on the list, so I selected them. I discovered this accidentally as I was trying to figure out why a purchase I made last week did not appear in my account. Did you know this was available?

At Reclamation Reformation Brewery last Saturday I saw two, count them two, men dressed in NY Jets t-shirts! It was if they thought the Jets had done something like make the playoffs.

Over the weekend I heard that Lime and Bolt had pulled their scooters out of Atlanta. This decline makes sense due to over-saturation, but I dare say that it almost seems difficult to find a stand of scooters in Midtown now, not that I am looking.

Paulie’s Health Score: B- at best. There are still too many problems and pains, all of which are seeming to linger for too long.

Last night’s Moonlite Turkey Trail Score: D. At least there was a trail, which was shortened and made much easier due to the uncertainty of the rain. Many thanks to Bonnie for helping me lay trail.

Last night’s Eagle Trail Score: A. At least that was what we heard from the six/seven people who ran the six miles that went through some serious tunnels. I have a little sadness that I didn’t run trail, but I am not in running shape and I knew it was going to be long and hard, so I didn’t feel qualified to do it.

We ended at a new brewpub called Bold Monk Brewery, which is spitting distance from Steady Hand Brewing. There is another new brewery called Fire Maker currently under construction less than a quarter of a mile from these two. I wonder if the beer industry is going to incur a contraction just as the scooter industry has.

    If that trail was a “D” then I’m never signing up to lay a trail again! 😕

    Correct “Reclamation” to “Reformation.” 😕

    My Kroger account still supports the cat rescue in Memphis that I volunteered at, even though Kroger initially told me when I moved that I can’t support an out-of-state organization. ?

    • That trail was too easy (all road) and too short, with no complications such as checks or count backs, etc. It was the right trail for the unknown weather conditions but not much more. You have to admit that if the eagle hashers had run turkey they would have been sorely disappointed.

      Please continue to sign up for trails, you are concerned with doing it correctly and everyone values that in a hare. 🙌🏻

      Thanks for the correction. 🤜🏻🤛🏻

      Weird that would be a limitation for Kroger since they are national, and there were many out of state charities from which I could choose.

    You know you can do that in Lyft too, right? It will round up your ride cost to the next dollar automatically for charity. Mine’s helping out Habitat for Humanity right now. 🙂

    I need to check my Kroger account – I really can’t remember who I have (if anyone) for charity.
    I wanted to come do your trail, but I just couldn’t get motivated – I just wasn’t feeling all that great – I need to snap out of it.

    Finally started really working on the Barcelona plane tickets – so many options, and none are cheap. I think the times work best for flying thru JFK, but the other option that isn’t terrible is flying thru Amsterdam. then I saw some deals on United, but I just don’t think I want to sit in economy for this long of a flight.
    such decisions.

    • Steve says:

      And United (at least when we flew to Ireland) has you changing at Ohare, where you have to go out and back into security to go international. I don’t know how common that is.

  4. Holy shit, I know it’s six days away but I just looked at the weather forecast for Sunday and Monday next week. 🥶🥶🥶

      It’s going to be a chilly Black Sheep and MLK volunteer day! It was almost exactly a year ago when we did that really cold, windy Black Sheep at Arabia Mountain (Dr. B and Chin Chin Chiller). I just looked at that photo of you, Paulie, on the rocks with the buff over your face—LOL. 😄

    6 miles on a Monday night, with tunnels? Damn.

    Geaux Tigers! Since they wee the SEC team, that’s who I rooted for- there is no love lost on Clem’s son. There was also no way I was going to stay up for the second half and get to work this morning- at least the first half was exciting.

    On my walk at lunch yesterday, I noticed the bike rack at the MARTA station was void of bikes. And you’re right, there are a lot fewer scooters littering Midtown.

    Already time to start planning for the Games! Meeting tonight.
