Day Before Garbage Day

Having repaired the flat on the rear of Jamis (it was a flat flake of corroded metal about an 1/8 inch in diameter), I rode the sucker to work, par habitude.

But as I took off I noticed the computer display was, well, ALL WRONG! It had obviously been reset. It survived my changing the time the other day, so what could have done it?

I thought maybe it was the magnets in the speakers on my computer desk that it sat next to yesterday.

And then I thought, maybe I set the bike computer too close to the corner of the shelves Jamis rests against, and it pushed on the button. I bet!

A Reconstruction of the Imaged Scene:

Snapped a pic of a dipole very high in the air, where it belongs.

And mine is strung along the inside of the garage roof!

Here is one of our little visitors to the library, very near where I park the bike. Hope I don't pick up any passengers!

I made coffee this morning at work, but forgot to put the carafe back to receive the hot brew. Imagine my chagrin when I found coffee all OVER the place!

What else happened at work, besides deadly spiders and spilled coffee?

Someone (Debbie H.) brought in a textbook she found laying in the grass this morning. It had been there all weekend, looks like. The pages were a bit wavy from moisture.

Later on I had to clean chewing gum (mint flavored) out of a CD drive on a Macintosh.

And then there was the usual pushing in the same chairs five times, and picking up books strewn about.

But this isn't a library ranting blog, is it?

Eventually I got to go home. It was a very pleasant ride, warm, but with low humity, very nice.

Don't you hate it when a length of terlit paper sticks to you shoe? This guy is dragging a plastic bag.

And here I am cycling home from work.

Did I mention I forgot to warsh clothes this weekend, so I had to wear my "holey" shorts. I wore a t-shirt to ride IN to work, changed to the Hawaiian shirt AT work, and felt so, I don't know, lackadaisical, that AFTER work that I just wore it home!

Pro Photo Editing Tip: Don't hit "Sharpen" too many times.

Probably rode 10 miles today, but who knows for certain?

The sharpened image looks kind of like a Seurat.
