Even though I had planned on yesterday being a rest day, no cycling, I rode anyway. I'm up to 54.8 miles this week. I only need to ride 55 miles per week to hit my goal. That will be reached this afternoon. I'm going to aim for over 70 miles this week.
I've got over 10,000 words written in The Body in the Loch. My intention this evening is to start work on Chapter 6, At the Slaughtered Lamb. Of course, the ending is already fixed. That's something which will never change. The only difference between writing a fiction book and writing a doctoral thesis, or writing non-fiction, is I get to make up the stuff between the beginning and the end. Try that in a thesis and you'll never graduate.
I see where the Idiot Jerk in the White House has postponed his first rally by a day. Some boner brain in Facebook said it proves he's not tone deaf. Nope. He doesn't care what the majority of Americans think, his only concern is is base.... and his ever sinking approval rating. Some wise guy, obviously not that racists Stevie Miller, more protests were going to make his chances of getting re-elected even bleaker, not that moving to one day later is going to help.
And the RNC is going to leave their 2016 platform completely intact, even the criticisms of the current president and his administration (in 2016 it was Obama). Now, tell me, isn't that a half-assed way to run things? Surely that document has to be on Word. Of course, maybe they'll just print it off and use a Sharpie or a Crayon to cross out the maligning words.
And for those who didn't see this, voter turn out in Georgia was 3 times what it was in 2016!!! And that's in spite of the Chaos. You can bet the GOP didn't see that coming. America is pissed off. For those who haven't heard this before, I'm going to tell you Dave's Axiom: "America is overwhelmingly Centrist. A Popular president can edge it to either the Left of the Right. An Unpopular president will always move it rapidly in the opposite direction." The Idiot Jerk in the White House, and his Cracker Jack Christian / Racist / White Supremacist base is moving America deep into Progressive Territory. For every action, there is a reaction. They do this because they believe themselves to be special when in reality they are just plain stupid.
Finally, how about a picture of my peaches? Some of them are tiny, not nearly as big as a tennis ball, but they will be tasty.
