NOT TODAY!

Another Sinko de Mayo, but you get to eat!

……. and I’m one of them

I’m with you ……. more common sense from the man below who should be the NEXT President

A lot of good intentions for today but ……….. along comes the Gale Force Wind and down come the branches and after many false starts I’m forced to accept this is a no riding day!

I did actually manage to move all 5 hanging basket brackets as the fir trees in the lower Whisky Barrels have grown so  more clearance is required. That was it for a disappointing Thursday with the second ZERO of the week due to high winds.

Friday, 8th May, again bright and sunny, but not quite so warm but the intrepid cyclist bangs in the third 30+ day of the week with a 31.73 and the total surges forward to 757.22 for the year.

Saturday, and time to ride a few more windy miles before some extra  photos for the Infinity Seat competition. I seem to get more ideas by the day but so far haven’t captured any of them ….. perhaps today is the day?

“Meanwhile,” I do hope some of the Governors open up the libraries as some of the electorate need a few history lessons as to where various flags came from.

History lessons required

These belong to NO nation and should be burnt!

All “very good people ?”

Windy, very windy miles completed, on the morning run, getting even worse now as the lunch break is over. Brenda back from a shopping run and seems the populace has decided that masks don’t matter anymore as people are out and about. Zero social distancing and the disaster about to begin ALL OVER again! 5 more positive cases in the county in the last 2 days …….. watch this boom ….. again, mark my words!!! Phase II is coming.

Despite the Loon’s statements from the White House there are now 2 cases in the West Wing and as yet the husband of the second case will not quarantine with his wife. It never ceases to amaze me that these buffoons think that immediately testing is the ALL CLEAR when of course it will take a few days to incubate and manifest itself in the next batch of infected individuals. DUMB must be BLISS!

At the Post Office, didn’t use this shot as the sign behind on the bike rack, that I wanted, can’t be deciphered due to the sun!

The afternoon goes pretty well with a mega photo shoot for the Infinity Competition and another 26.76 joins the riding total. Well at least I should have a bunch of entries and we will see how that goes as there is a rather nice saddle I would like to win in blue/white to match the Roubaix.

Tribute to Mother’s Day

Peace at the Lake

Sunday and Mother’s Day here in the US. A few miles to start after pumping up the slow leak in the rear tire. Just make it back past the house when there is a giant “ping” from a stone and shortly after that the wobbly feeling as the tube gives in! Well no big surprise there so back home and change the tube. Inside of tire inspected and fresh tube in and pumped up to 95 psi and after a coffee check the pressure again …. all good and out for another 10 miles, when “ping” again and a slow ride in with yet another puncture!!!! not my lucky day but I did crack 800 for the year.

Brenda made the BEST Quiche EVER!!

Overnight rain as forecast so the quarantine continues with a wet weather program. First up some new tires and tubes for the Roubaix and then workshop cleaning and reorg.

Better do both while I’m at it

Job done NEW rubber all round

Weather seems to be improving, although black ominous clouds down the valley but maybe a few miles after the tire change? Tires done, better check the weather and see if I can recover some unexpected miles this afternoon. 13.66 achieved despite the darkening gloom and build up of winds. Made it home as the skies went black and no sooner had the coffee in my hand and it started raining.

Tuesday, and supposedly very windy for the next 3 days. Getting used to it but it doesn’t make it any more pleasant. Grass needs mowing again and maybe riding after that.

Grass mowed, side of property strimmed ….. good morning’s effort and  time for an afternoon ride….. wind picking up as the forecast said 15-25 with 35 mph gusts! Hard work but 18.74 better than nothing.

Talking of nothing …… where is the next stimulus check ???? maybe the Dictator has decided that without money people will be forced back to work, regardless of safety, to appease the arsehole’s desire for the economy

Well done Trump

Back to blaming China for everything and Obama for what ever’s left there is never and end to it and if someone argues he stomps off!

She asked a question that he said was “nasty”

HE has to GO!!

 

When it’s over a holiday will be needed but currently this is the CASE

Got to love it

One thought on “NOT TODAY!”

  1. Greetings from Florida! I’m bored to death at work so I decided

    break. I love the knowledge you present here and can’t wait to take a
    look when I get home. I’m surprised at how fast
    your blog loaded on my mobile .. I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G ..
    Anyhow, awesome site!
