Yesterday the temps stayed on the cool side, we had drizzles on and off. I spent a lot of my time working on the new / old back door, modifying the frame. In a 115 year old house nothing is square, so I need to add to the trim. No big deal.
And, of course, I had to make time for Stage 3 of the Tour de France. When they crossed the Finish Line those Sprinters were pedaling at 62 kmh (38.5 mph). Can we talk about having legs of steel? Because of Covid, the cyclists are in a bubble, a very, very big bubble. Everyone around them is wearing masks and social distancing. While cycling, they themselves are not. A vast majority of the fans are masked, and there are a lot of fans. It's rather amazing.
For some time, the Idiot Jerk in the White House has been chiding Biden for staying in his basement. Yesterday, he came out. He gave a speech in Pittsburgh. That man is sharp as a tack, much sharper than the Idiot Jerk who's been known to shuffle from thought to thought. As I was watching, I realized Biden is looking forward to the debates. He's going to call the Idiot Jerk a Damn Liar on National TV. We all know how poorly that's going to go over. We may actually get to see 'lava level' anger. My money says the more often Joe makes public appearances, the more resilient he shows his mind to be, the more the Idiot Jerk's advisors will begin to dread the debates. Good.
For those who are voting by mail, make sure your ballot gets posted early! And be prepared. In some states they begin the verification process before the election, not so in Pennsylvania. In this state, that process will not even begin until November 3. There are a few states that don't even start to verify signatures until after the polls close. In PA, they're trying to get that changed so votes can be counted more expediently. However, we do know that the Republicans will do everything they possibly can to squash a fair election so I'm doubting if any kind of resolution will be passed.
Finally, it's rose time again. Here's one of my peachy roses.
