    Good pics. It almost looks like the peloton is on top of the train in the second one. Have you ever been on the sub-reddit “confusing perspective.”?

    Thank you, Gilliatt. Yes, as usual I'm ready for the temperature to drop, so I can actually enjoy the outdoors instead of feeling like I need to hide from it.

    Thank you very much, Gilliat! I'm also glad my page is no longer assaulting you with images of lingerie... unless that's a bad thing!

    Isn't this crazy? I turned on the air conditioner last night and then woke up to this! I hope our school will have a late start, anyway, but I'm also glad it will be quite a bit warmer in a few days and officially spring in a few weeks. Yea, spring! I can hardly wait!

    Gill, amigo! Thanks for checking in. I think my work schedule is mostly a self-inflicted wound. With the economy rockin and rollin again, it's hard to leave money on the table. Anyhow I keep threatening to throttle back and just go fishing.

    Cheers
