I had a nice 10 mile ride in Flanders along the Ijzer Front 1914 -18. I ride by World War I memorials and ancient German bunkers. The entire ride is 30 miles long and is broken down into segments. I've ridden bits and pieces before and every time I've done so I think about the poem In Flanders Fields.
In Flanders fields the poppies grow,
between the crosses, row by row
It's a somber little poem. Here's the link if you'd like to read it in its entirety. However, yesterday I rode through Flanders fields wearing my Taco socks.
If you look closely, you can see a bit of chain grease on my calf. It's a habit I have, leaning into the chain.
I did see where Mark Meadows, a henchie for the Idiot Jerk in the White House was on... CNN possibly, saying that there was going to be an election on November 3, and that the president was going to win. Don't you find it interesting how the Idiot Jerk in the White House rails against fake news, but has no problem sending out his henchies to these networks to seed his lies? I do.
And, finally, I saw an interesting opinion in The Hill his morning on how the Idiot Jerk's presidency has been more of a reality show than a presidency. I liked the comparison between the Idiot Jerk and Paris Hilton, another reality personality who was cancelled, cancelled being the operative word. The man has never been a politician, one of his many, many shortcomings. Rather, he's more of a petulant 'B' actor who lucked into a starring roll in a show which exemplified his lack of qualifications. This November, because of his shitty performance, America is going to fire him. He's going to be cancelled.
