I am worn out calling for help;
my throat is parched.
My eyes fail,
looking for my God.
Please help me raise money for the MS Bike Tour Cape Cod Getaway. Donate today on my MS Participant page.
I am have felt grumpy and out of sorts the last few days. Grr.
I baked and ate cookies for dinner last night. They are oatmeal raisin chocolate chip almond cookies, and turned out pretty darn well despite the cook’s grumpiness.
As a result of this picture (you can see my eyes!) I got my sunglasses tinted darker yesterday — they now have a 20% tint all the time, and then will darken more in bright sunlight. I hope they aren’t too dark for riding at night.
My new chain lasted one month. I bought it March 21 and replaced it 1,000 miles later on April 23. Having ridden on the new new chain for a few days now, I think the cassette needs replacing too. This would be the fourth chain for that cassette, and at about 1,000 miles per chain, I think it’s just too worn. This will make my fifth trip to the bike shop since last Friday. I’m bringing them some of the cookies. Bribery always works.
I really like my Hill Slug jersey.
I saw 3 tennis balls in one ride, but didn’t retrieve any of them. Last year I mailed a dozen or so off to Carmel and after that Mom and Dad asked me to stop. They said they were drowning in tennis balls.
I weigh 108 lbs. Does that mean that I physically cannot put more than 108 lbs of pressure into my tires using a floor pump?
That is all for now.
