    Wind curse is alive and well. 17 mph and gusts to 25 mph. Grrrrr.

    Did spy a yuge trumpeter swan while biking by Crane Lake and by than the wind was sorta at my back so that was cool. The ride up the twin Camel Humps on Plymouth Road was less fun. Not in hill shape.

    Im out sitting on my parents front porch. They live on one of the main roads in town so there's a lot of traffic. If I took a shot for everyone I see driving while on their phone, I'd be in the hospital.

    I've had a couple of people almost rear end me from texting while following me...but they were wearing a mask (unnecessary for driving alone) so clearly they were thinking about safety.

    Heck, even I can in that case, and I make less than I did in grad school.

    Annoying fly in the house. Snatched him out of air with one try with my hand. Not Mr. Miyagi level with chopsticks or anything like that but not bad for a senior citizen and quite satisfying.

    My eyes hurt SOOOO bad. A mask wouldn't help me with the pollen...unless I wear a full face gas mask. :(

    I just told Lew I don't even feel safe to drive right now. My vision is so blurred from all the crap building up in my eyes. Zaditor is barely making a dent this season. GAAAHHH!!!

    Well the 2nd pie was as good as the first. Work took too long so no bike ride for me today. Picked up .75" of rain which was ok. Hopefully tomorrow will be a better day.

    Hopefully you wore sunglasses to protect your peepers. ;)

    I slopped on some screen on my nose yesterday. First time I dug into the Cancun supplies this summer.

    And, just going to assume this is tracked too far east and didn't account for the BCC storm magnet influence. The Boxster Model has this running right to north central Iowa.

    Looks like the storm thinks the woman is really hot.

    EDIT: Or extremely unattractive, pending how you look at it.

    Yes, did that, AND put sunblock on my face, but not on my arms. Which is dumb of me. But I'm thankful for at least applying it to my face because I have an appointment to renew my license a week from Tuesday. Don't need a bright red peeling face for five years on my license.
