Monday, the 2nd of 3 days off in a row. Almost a mini vacation. I'm going to go pay my real estate taxes today - now ain't that gonna be fun? That means stopping by Member's First to get a cashier's check. Last year I paid with a regular check and had to wait almost 3 weeks for the money to come out of the account. No Way. I worked in accounting for 35 years so when it comes to $$ I'm very precise. I don't understand people who dick around with shit like this.
My syn got put back on the trainer yesterday. I only managed to ride about 3.5 miles. I'd had the X6 on until I got my crank fixed. Switch back meant recalibrating... necessary when using a smart trainer. Getting the traction right between the rear tire and the roller can be a time consuming process: too much and you feel like you're climbing hills constantly, too little and you tire will slip. We deal with these little things in life.
Oh, and I saw where the Idiot Jerk said in an interview that the EU is our foe. Dumb Fuck. He's going to give the farm to his Blow Buddy Vlad. And two of the Idiot Jerk's appointed dicks, Mnunchin and Pompeo, have told pretty much everybody that if they trade with Iran there will be no tariff waivers. These hardliners are killing the country. So, is the same thing going to hold true for Russia? Or is he going to give his Blow Buddy Vlad a free pass? Do I really need to ask. The Idiot Jerk is so desperate to have a dictator call him a 'Strong Leader,' he'll do back flips if necessary. And those allies whom we've counted on for years? They'll move closer to China. We will be left with no one. This is what Putin has wanted all along, to isolate us from the rest of the world. That isolation makes us more vulnerable. His plan is to topple us out of Number One. With his power over the Idiot Jerk, he will succeed.
On to a lighter note. I tend to have luck with roses. Here's a pic I snapped yesterday of some.
They don't have much of a scent, but boy are they pretty!
