Treating myself to coffee and pumpkin bread for breakfast on this wonderfully cool, if not humid, morning.

Not much to report in my world other than the expected confirmation that State Farm is no help when it comes to windshield repair. According to the person with whom I spoke, they pay for any amount over my comprehensive deductible of $500. Since my estimate from SafeLite is $390 it’s pointless to file a claim. Poop.

On the brighter side, I managed to toil in the back yard for another 2.5 hours yesterday afternoon. It’s coming along, slowly, but progress is being made. I’m still going to need a ton of help clearing the remaining 80% of jungle.

Also needing a ton of help to avoid relegation is my beloved Werder Bremen. Their chance of remaining in the top flight went from “slim” to “almost none” thanks to the unexpected tie and win pulled off by the teams directly above them against teams who are in the top three positions of the standings.

I’ve been watching YouTube videos showing how to clean and restain wooden decks. I did the job once, and hired a handyman once, and am trying to figure out which way to go this year. If I didn’t have so many expenses piling up the decision would be a lot easier…

Hope you are staying healthy, friends.

(Steve, where did you eat lunch yesterday?)

    Paulie has graciously agreed to help me map optimal route(s) to ride to Stone Mountain solo. (When I’m riding with others I don’t care as much what route we take.) I’m trying to find the optimal mix of road / PATH, taking into consideration some other variables. The two routes he’s given me utilize less of the PATH. Yesterday I rode his “hillier” route that ended up being 36 miles including the inner loop. I made a few mistakes, because that’s what I do, and hey—breadcrumb maps on a bike GPS are hard! I thought, “Huh, that wasn’t as hilly as I remember! I must be getting even better! Yay me!” Then later I discovered I actually rode the “flatter” route. 🤦‍♀️ Perhaps Friday morning I may tackle the hillier route. Maybe.

    I’m overdue by 2 months to go to the dentist, so I’m starting to have dental issue dreams. I haven’t been this glad to wake up in a while. 😂

    • Wasn’t hard to do, I was just passing along info that was passed to me a long time ago. Regardless of which route you took you deserve a 🤜🏻🤛🏻 for getting out there and doing it!

      Glad the dental problems were only in your dream.

      I’ve washed and hung to dry my “yard work” clothes in anticipation of getting back out there tomorrow or Saturday morning.

    I was disappointed George’s was closed when I went by. I had my heart set on a mushroom and swiss burger with onion rings, but it was not to be. I called Debbie and asked what she wanted me to bring her, as she was waiting on the hospital bed to be delivered. She reported the bed was being delivered and she was planning on heading to the cafe’. I met her there and supported our local establishment.

    The physical was minimal at best. Pee check, blood samples, and less than 10 seconds of stethoscope. I asked about the shingles vaccine and he wrote me a script. Barb, didn’t you get it recently? And where?

    Attempted to repair tubes last night but my glue was all dried out. 3 tubes now at least have the holes marked.

    Debbie’s mom arrives today. For a month. yippee.

      Steve – you got a prescription for the shingles vaccine? I didn’t.
      got mine at Sam’s – just ask you favorite pharmacy if they have both shots – 1st & 2nd – so you don’t get screwed on getting the 2nd one.
