Buzzworm Crossing?

Certainly seems serpentine. …

I don’t think so, but maybe we need a few of ’em around here.

Herself and I saw three defunct snakes at roadside during yesterday’s ride. At speed it was impossible to tell whether these were buzzworms or bull snakes, and since “at speed” is the way I prefer to view snakes, whether alive or dead, we’ll just have to content ourselves with blissful ignorance as regards species.

Speaking of vipers in the collective bosom, I understand today’s Justice for Jagoffs rally is starting to look like a tailgate party for a tank-town JV field-hockey match. Seems the paranoia strikes deep:

Users in far-right Internet forums and groups have claimed without evidence that the rally is a “trap,” created by the federal government to lure demonstrators to Washington, where federal officials will arrest them. Users also allege without evidence that the event will be infiltrated by left-wing activists who will disguise themselves as Trump supporters and deliberately cause trouble to make the rallygoers look unlawful.

Hee, and also haw, etc. Like The State needs to corral all these selfie-snapping shitheads in one place to snatch ’em up instead of picking them off one by one using their own social-media postings as a virtual breadcrumb trail to their various holes in the wall.

“I couldn’t do that. Could you do that? How can they do that? Who are those guys?”

Just a couple federales with a laptop, Butch. You and Sundance ever consider relocating to Bolivia? They love a good demonstration.

      You ain’t kidding! Plus, these people think politicians, especially the dumpster, care about them. Delusional is what.
      The reference to Bolivia was interesting. My guitar mentor’s smarter half grew up in Cochabamba, and her brother and sister still live there. Alan and Carmen lived there for 12 years before moving here 2 years ago. The roadblocks were and are a constant source of problems there. Plus, even though Cochabamba is at 9100 feet of elevation in the foothills of the Andes, the air pollution there is the main reason they moved here.

    What? What’s that? I just woke up. Did you say that the orange buffoon is going to run for dictator of Bolivia? MBGA! Yeah baby!

    We gave “at speed” a go this morning. We were “at” something, but speed wasn’t it. A whopping six miles in just over 50 minutes of ride time, or two hours door to door, counting stops to snap pix of heron or eagles, to toss sticks into the Poudre, or just to nibble on something. Good thing I had the Ortlieb maxed out with granola bars, fig newtons, and extra water, because somehow both of the girls ate, not just theirs, but their Dad’s rations as well along our short little trip.

    Didn’t see any snakes, but with all the giggling from our pace line, we probably scared them away before we got too close.

    The 11-year old just graduated up to Mom’s old mountain bike, but the littlest one will be on 20″ wheels for at least another year, so we’re doing a whole lot more cruising and sight-seeing and two-wheeled exploring than anything that would look anything like exercise. I told Michele, looks like my heart rate hit 75. She said, 75% of max, that’s pretty good. No, I replied, just 75. That’s the highest it got the whole trip.

    Still, a day coasting on two wheels beats any day on zero or in four.

      SAO’: Good on ya! Rule #1 is FUN! Those girls will want to consider the coloradomtb.org league in a few more years. Absolutely fan/FUNtastic!! 🙂

      Tell ya what, the skeeters down to here are worser than the buzzworms. We were out chatting up the neighbors and the sumbitches were on us like Dracula on a hot jugular.

      Your family outings are the real deal. My family took evening spins when we were at Randolph AFB. Nothing strenuous, just four O’Gradys rolling around officers’ country. Those rides are among my fondest memories. Hell, a half century later I’m still riding with my family.

    It will be fall in 30 minutes according to sun watching folks at NOAA. So, pretty soon Hurben can start working on his sandal tan. Happy fall all you hosers, heh?
