Happy to say that my new bicycle tires worked well last night. In fact, my only complaint of the night was that ACF showed up on ITP-Reader Bob’s old bike and kicked my ass! I’m not sure that bicycle had ever gone that fast before. 😀

For the next week I am going to clean and organize at least one room every day in preparation for my friends’ visit next week.

Wordle: two, my starter was LEAST
Connections: perfect, Blue > Yellow > Purple > Green

    Wordle in 4 and shoulda been 3!! F’ers.

    A quiet night. Shoulda run, coulda ridden, but after voting (and saying hello to 2 hunt friends who work the polls) I rode my recliner for the evening.

    We’re watching the new season of Bridgerton and I’m trying to keep up. It’s silly fun.

    Giro stage yesterday shortened because of rain and SNOW in the Dolomites!! Don’t know what today will bring.


  2. Reading about the tornado which hit Iowa yesterday. Have heard from ITP-Reader Barb, she is fine.

    It appears the tornado demolished one of the “meeting towns”, Greenfield, along this year’s RAGBRAI route. It will be interesting to see if the route is changed, or if the town can handle the influx of people in two months; I’m guessing the former.

      I worried about Barb, but never thought of RAGBRAI.

        I did hear the sirens for a few minutes – but it was really never that bad. Never even considered going down to the basement. It was very windy last night though. I had to shut my windows in my bedroom.

        Watched the NBA playoffs (Celtics & Pacers) – Celtics got lucky & went into overtime – and then won. Yes- this is my fun 😉

        Mom got moved to a rehab place, my brother really doesn’t like it, but will he like anywhere? (its for 20 days max, and mom hates it too, but that would be everywhere). I asked my high school classmate FB group for what they have liked & not liked for places here in town, since many have gone thru this sort of thing.
        I’m getting a list together to show my brother.

  3. Out harvesting a lackluster garlic crop. I had high hopes for this year, which were not realized.

    I’m glad somebody can make that bike go fast! 🙂

    Another evening spent staining the clubhouse deck, we are almost done but I’m busy for the rest of the week so had to hand off the rest to the neighborhood crew.
    Bowling league starts tonight with a meeting to go over how everything works followed by open lanes to bowl. Next Wednesday is the official first week.
    Heading up to Brevard this weekend for some mountain bike and motorcycle riding, looking forward to exploring new areas.

    Really busy week so far, I haven’t had a minute to rest. We are replacing the elevator in our building and it will be out for 12 weeks. I am on the top floor and many of my colleagues have temporarily moved to a lower floor for the summer. It requires a lot of moving and tech support. It’s only the 5th floor, I think I can handle 4 flights of stairs.

    In other news, my great aunt Dotty died over the weekend. She was 105, so it was not unexpected. She was a truly amazing woman who was a lieutenant in the Battle of the Bulge and later in life received the French Legion of Honor. My grandmother (her sister) lived in Florida for much of my young life so Aunt Dotty was that for me. I got to see her last month when I was up in MA, I’m so glad I did!

  6. Listening to a podcast, Just Go Ride, which is mostly about RAGBRAI. They have mention more than once that this is the hilliest RAGBRAI ever. Oh boy! Of course this is subject to change with yesterday’s devastation.

    Lovely day for FIRE DRILL!

    just ordered a Pure Wick for my mom – its an external catheter so you don’t have to get up to go to the bathroom. Since she’s pretty stuck in bed right now, its a cool thing. They had it at the hospital, but not at this place.
    Damn – I think I want one for me so I never have to get up at night to pee.
    (its not cheap, so I won’t be getting one, but I love the concept)

  9. Listening to the Beastie Boys’ album “Paul’s Boutique” — what a masterpiece of Caucasian hip hop!
