Did I Mention Humid?

By the time I worked up the psychic energy to go for a ride yesterday, it was sprinkling.

Today we have possible thundershowers forecast, but it's just overcast. I went for a fourteen mile wandering stroll around the neighborhoods. I wore the blue jacket, but it didn't rain or nuthin'.

I've seen this auto a few times, have I posted a pic of it before? It is a 1956 Pontiac Chieftain.

Curb and sidewalk marks are a passing fancy of mine, along with interesting manhole covers. The ineffably creative Philip J. Erdelsky has a web page of almost TOO MUCH information about these marks titled The Sidewalks Of North Park.

You can actually READ it in the large image, a word to the wise.

I picked up a few rocks on the way home, and that was about it.

A cat picture, for Caturday (Link goes to a Fark Caturday forum, may not be safe for kids).

This cat has been having seizures, I think it has epilepsy. It it quite a sight to have a cat fall off the top of the computer tower into the canyon between it (the tower) and the monitor during an episode!

I also posted that picture to my brand-new Squeakycyclist Twitter account. I already have one follower, though I can't imagine why!

Tomorrow is Win For Susan Day .

I forgotted to mention on Thursday, I was pedaling along home when one of a group of teens sitting on a corner in San Carlos asked me if I had a match. I said, "No lighter, no matches." He said something like, "Dude. I really want a smoke." Or maybe something funnier. Should I not have put that in quotes? That was much more humorous Thursday, I guess.

I have more than forty-four miles on the trip odometer for the week. Point .02 miles more, that is.
