Roof roof roof

Behind the garage the sun is working its leisurely way up the east side of the Sandias.

Otro día, otro dolár.

Bicycle Retailer wants a cartoon, and Adventure Cyclist wants reviews. It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood. All is well, save for … well, you know.

Swear to God, this pendejo is gonna start strolling around with his little orange dingus hanging out, because why not?

Now, the Secret Service doesn’t have anything to fear from me, because I am renowned as a man of peace. But if some itty bitty brown woman with an interest in MMA were to start slapping all the rabies out of Orange Julius Caesar on CNN at prime time, well, I’d probably watch.

Speaking of spectacles, I am not watching Le Tour, though I check in from time to time via Cyclingnews or The Guardian. However, friends are over in Frogland for a closer look at La Grande Boucle.

One couple recently relocated from ’Burque  to Lyon, which enjoyed a ride-by during stage eight, from Mâcon to Saint-Étienne. Another is just visiting, but I forget which stage they get to see. One more than me, I expect.

As far as I know, neither couple is motoring around in a Citroën 2CV. But they could be.

    Cheeto Benito is just trying to draw attention away from the Epstein bail hearing. When they put Epstein back in the slammer until his trial, the prosecutors will start asking him to flip and cop a plea deal. If that happens, maybe billary and dumpster will leave the country in the middle of the night for a shit hole country with no extradition treaty with the good ole usofa.

      Technical difficulties this morning. My baby RAID array declined to function as intended and I was gearing up for a long chat with tech support.

      Then, on a whim, I unplugged the FireWire cable and turned the thing on. Hey presto! Booted up like a boss. Swapped cables and backed up last week’s collective wisdom without further ado. Huzzah, etc.

      • Pat O'Brien Says:

        Thanks for the fix on my post. Do you think you have a bad Firewire cable?

        Changing subjects, how is your back and leg? Mine are feeling much better, and I am going riding tomorrow.

      • Patrick O'Grady Says:

        Ayuh, I think that cable has had the schnitz. Happily, I’m a hoarder. I got more cables than the Golden Gate Bridge.

        The back and leg seem much improved. Last Monday and Tuesday were awful. But I got out for short, easy rides on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, and today I hiked for an hour.

        Still not running or lifting. If I had to guess, I’d guess the lifting might be the primary culprit, aided and abetted by a wider-than-usual saddle on the Masi.

        Delighted to hear you’re getting back on the hoss, Hoss.

    I’ve been watching…..er, dozing through most of Le Beeg Shew 2019. Of course yesterday I was otherwise involved and saw only the highlights at dinner time. As much as I hate SKY/INEOS this was Bike Racing 101 rather than any massive budget or secret sauce so CHAPEAU! Now the guys who got dropped really have some work to do, but there’s plenty of time (and mountains) before Pair-ee. Allez!

    • Patrick O'Grady Says:

      Ho, ho. Nothing like that sinking feeling as you churn along in the gutter, bleeding from the eyeballs and watching the race go away from you. As Vaughters noted on Twitter, “Well, that sucked.”

      • larryatcycleitalia Says:

        Oh well, there goes Uran’s chance to win. I’m hoping Quintana can pull it off this year now that Nibali’s thrown in the towel. Seems like he didn’t want to race Le Beeg Shew from the get-go, the Giro/Vuelta was his goal but the petro-sheiks had other ideas. He’s not had much luck with them, perhaps Trek-Segrafedo will be better? The espresso should be better at least!!!
