    Currently got an interlude in the rain, looks like normal service will resume shortly.

    Need to find a pharmacy, then put missing bits back on bike before a race this afternoon, hopefully in the dry.

    Moaning.

    Weather is looking better for a brief window. Must go pedal.

    The left arm is a bit sore after yesterday's battery incident, so i'll pedal one armed but that impediment will be offset by ceramic bearings.

    Morning All. Tad blustery out but rideable. Sad news for me today my rear freehub is definitely dead, upgrade to hope hub and freehub and ouch or like for like reasonable cost. Me being tight I've gone cheap and hinted to OH might get a new bike next yr. Pinno what you been playing at, not to hurt I hope.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Had a lie in till 10, much needed. Will go drop off/collect a few things then to the local chaff for bacon, eggs, sausages and coffee. That's good enough plan for now.

    Our apple tree has been dropping a few recently but they really do taste [email protected] Even the dogs won't eat them.

    Crab apples probably but great for cider making.

    Read my post at the end of yesterdays thread.
    Took my bad arm out for a ride today, seen as I can't unbolt it and it was okay thankfully. No major issues holding the bars/scratching my arris.

    πŸ€” I see why now Mr P. Suspect you kept hold of said battery and used yourself as an airbag so it didn't get damaged. πŸ™„

    Afternoon folks,
    Traditional slow start was enjoyed. Just been sorting out the old tut from under the lash to in the back garden. Space for more bikes now πŸ˜† somehow not how the EPO sees things.
    Glad you managed to ride Pina. Still can't ride on my bad arm of course, haven't reduced myself to running yet but I'll have to soon to avoid complete couch potato syndrome. Follow up to MRI on Friday so hopefully can move on after that.
    Off to see the old dear shortly, might walk there to get some air.

    Good point, the snails and slugs in the compost bin will have a party. Maybe next year...

    scorchio con los fuegos del infierno del diablo, had to drink double beers, fortunately there's a separate fridge just for drinks, so plenty on hand

    too many injuries in bb, anyone'd think we were getting on a bit

    Careful now SG, there are weirdos about on this internet thingie who'll be deeming you an alcoholic.

    Daughter #1's sig birthday today. Had a lovely time with her, her mother, her pals from early school days and some recent work colleagues. All outside and sanitised of course. Left them to it, time for generation n+1 to leave the party. Perhaps da kidz will be traumatised by seeing me drink a bottle of Corona.

    I'm not injured (yet) just diseased (shingles).

    It is a thing that apple varieties trad used for making cider are not that pleasant to eat. Free fact for you there.

    It's not that bad, just itchy and feels a bit odd.
    I've had it a few times over the last couple of years but this is the worst so far, and the doctor was sufficiently concerned to prescribe something (which I still haven't been able to get hold of).
  • pinnopinno Posts: 42,708
    Oh great. What was it your were going to get prescribed?

    I had it once. It was bad. Blisters all over the left hand side of the body. The only alleviation was Co-codamol crushed into a powder and mixed with E45 cream spread all over.
    If I get a bit hot and sweaty now, my neck itches.

    Aciclovir?
    Never had it before but hoping it will make me faster.

  • step83step83 Posts: 4,107
    Shingles? Pfft I have something covid πŸ˜‚ that's not really one to brag over though.

    An Pinno clearly go infected with my sudden terramagnetisim disorder. Though mines owning to some censored pedals.

    Much faffing in the garden today and the amusing situation of my dog getting stuck in the trench I'd dug, I'm assuming she either got curious an fell in or wanted to do some digging herself. Anyway extricated dog brushed off the dirt am she went an hid indoors.

    Weather gopping as per bring a dinner living in middle heckville. Windy random sharp showers etc none of this sun SG has been lapping up, what did they call this storm Egor or something?

    Anyway pedal tomorrow morning an then faff about doing things.
