Default Third ride not happening

It's a glorious day out there, and I know I'd enjoy the ride once I
got moving, and my diastolic is up to 85, so I *really* need the
exercise.

But by the time I got suited up, it would be time to come back.
Besides, my only heavy sweater needs darning, and if I wear it before
I darn it, the hole will get bigger.

==========

I never set foot outside except to throw out the garbage, but I did
get some sewing done. Looks like my next chance to ride won't be
until Wednesday.

On my first ride of 2016, I thought of two new topics for the Aunt
Granny posts, but lost one because mittens aren't conducive to taking
notes. I was disappointed that the topic didn't come back to me
during my second ride, but I did perk up after I got moving, stopped
at two stores before getting to Aldi -- there would have been a point
to taking my heavy socks so I could try on shoes after all, but I was
glad not to have them while packing groceries into my panniers. And
afterward I made a side trip to Aunt Millie's Bread Outlet.

AWK SCRICKLE as I exited the store -- where is my bike? Took only a
second to remember that I'd parked by the steps that appear to have
been installed for my personal convenience. But I did once see a
long-haul trucker use them to get to the convenient store in the gas
station.

If you've been following AG: , you may have noticed that I'm scraping
the bottom of the buffer. The series will end Real Soon Now.

Oh, don't stop!

I know the feeling. I have a couple of regular monthly writing
assignments. After years and years, the well gets a bit dry.

(This is why television is so bad, on average. It voraciously consumes
content.)

But don't stop.

While lying in bed growsing that a telemarketer had interrupted my
nap, and wondering whether I could find out the name of the
chronically-sore body part a little to the left of my spine, not too
far from the top of the coccyx, topic drift brought an idea for
another post to mind, so AG: will last at least one more week.

There are also two partly-written articles in the buffer, and one of
them wants only another couple of paragraphs. The other, alas,
describes something that I don't understand nearly as well as I
thought I did before I started trying to explain it.

That last phenomenon is common among teachers. It leads to intense
preparation, so one learns a lot when trying to teach others. It's one
reason I tried to get my better students to act as tutors.

Imagine how much better we'd be at cycling if we all taught cycling classes!

Which is why I'm writing those columns!

And I took it. Not as fine a day as Saturday, but I didn't need
mittens, so I was able to take notes, so there should be two more AG:
posts. Assuming, of course, that I remember what I meant by
"comickup:stop" and "fit in winter" when I have time to write.

There were fine flakes of snow in the air, and temperatures were
predicted to rise above freezing, so I didn't stop as often as I might
have. Still didn't get home until after one o'clock -- despite having
risen at half-past eight, it was ten-fifty before I got moving.

The first time I stopped, I forgot to take my bottle in with me. But
I took it in at the next place, and closing and opening the valve a
couple of times got it working again. (Maybe that can be another
post?)

Thanks to what I call The Easter Incident, I now know that that is the
sacroiliac joint.

There are some things I don't mind knowing, but regret having learned.

You mean having learned the hard way. Usually the only way to deal with these things are to ride through them. After the last two huge crashes I was on the bike again in days. Though not very fast, mind you.
