The crud from my sinus canals has transfered itself down to my chest and throat. Laughing causes coughing and choking. I feel like a 30 year veteran of smoking. The hack is better than what it’s been, I’m happy for that.
Several things, but not everything, was completed today. We cleaned up the garage, organized a quasi-desk for me and I even got out to the pier to take some photos of the Casseroll and her new shoes.

Sexy metal fenders
I’m needing new tires. These haven’t been used much <100 miles on them, but boy they must be 5 years old. They corner like crap, and the little nobs left over from the mold (pokers sticking out) make an awful racket on the metal fenders. Sure I could hand trim then, but the fact they corner like crap and the wire bead is about to pull out from dry rot leads me to desire a new pair of tires. Any recomendations?
The Casseroll went fixed last night. I went down a tooth in the back from the freewheel. I think I’m running 48x17t, that’s me going off the Salsa website for chainring sizing.
Tomorrow I hope to tune in the fenders (the struts need cut and fenders clamped down a bit under the brakes), trim the brake cables, pretty up the light cable routing and get a few miles spin to double check gearing. Tomorrow also brings Kimberlee’s sister, from Oklahoma, in for a visit. She’s here through the weekend and we most likely will all find trouble one night or another.
