On Friday after work I got back out on the bike for a 10 mile ride. My pace seems to be improving by tiny fractions each time I do it. It’s nice to something improving instead of declining at this age. Friday night I did a nearly 3 hour live stream celebrating 50 live broadcasts. I drank one of my handful of remaining Zimas during the stream, which at this point is 2-3 years old. The Zima unfortunately did not taste normal, clearly it has a limited shelf life.
Saturday the property was still too sopping wet to consider mowing but I did wind up running the weed whacker as I hadn’t done it in at least three weeks. I am hoping to mow the property tonight which will surely wind up in the dark. Cindy stopped by as I was finishing up mowing for me to do a couple things to the laptop she has been using.
On Saturday night I did something out of the box for me, went to a comedy show. Cindy’s younger brother who has been trying to establish himself in the local Miami comedy scene was one of the openers for a show in Fort Myers so I decided to go. I was curious what it would be like so I bought a ticket and showed up. As I walked up to the front door I saw most of Cindy’s family by the door, many of which I had not seen for a couple years. They were happy to see me and didn’t ask where Cindy was so I assumed they all knew the deal.
The show was funny with a total of 5 comedians doing their thing. It was a bit weird sitting at the table with all of Cindy’s family without her actually being there. Like I said they all were very friendly and nice to me which I appreciated. The three light beers I had during the show helped keep me socially viable. I enjoyed the show and if Cindy’s brother comes back to the west coast I would consider going again.
On Sunday morning I ran several errands which included meeting Cindy at Lowes to help her load up some stone. She has a cast and a boot on one foot right now so it makes doing such things very problematic for her. I carted the stuff over to the place where the work was being done and unloaded it there.
I watched the Eagles game against the Panthers. The offense looked dreadful for the majority of the game, but unlike the previous week, the defense actually made plays, coming up with three interceptions and a blocked punt, all of which was a big part of the scoring the team did. During the first half I thought there was no way the Eagles were going to win the game, they did. I was happy to be wrong but it didn’t do anything to change my overall pessimistic outlook for the season ahead.
After the game I decided to carve out some time for a quick ride on my V11, the only suspension EUC I currently own. I had not ridden that wheel in a little while since I added the V12 and Z10 to my collection. I immediately felt the difference suspension has on my body, it was great. I need to get out on it more often.
