Covid-19 Can Get Bent

To everybody who read my comment on Rich’s post and saw I had gotten the Covid curse, I thank you for the well wishes. Don’t worry though, my symptoms are almost embarrassingly mild. I credit the vaccines, the boosters, my active lifestyle, and my above average immune system for that.

The symptoms are so mild that I’ve been out on bike rides every day. I know I can stay at least 100′ away other people, so I don’t feel like I’m violating the quarantine rules. The first three days, I just didn’t have the “oom-pah-pah” to write anything about it afterwards. Today–day four–I feel ready to show a few pictures for part two of the July Challenge.

This DENTED door is the consequence of being located in the foul ball territory of a baseball field.

Many WRINKLES in the sheet of aluminum below the barbed wire.


I have one final picture coming up. If you have something that’s wrinkled, crinkled, dented, or bent, and you want to flatten it out, I found just the thing to help you. It’s a huge, mechanical ironing device.

Hi. My name is Greg and I ride my bike a lot. That is to say, I ride my bike almost every day. I go on long rides and short rides. Sunny rides, cloudy rides, and rainy rides. I like commuting, errand-running, day-tripping, overnighting, and touring on my bike. I ride on city streets, highways, gravel, single track, and snow with equal enthusiasm. Sometimes I ride fast and sometimes I ride slow. I try to keep my feet on the pedals at stop lights and I do not dismount when I hop up on a curb. I have a roadie bike, a mountain bike and a touring bike. I try to accept any challenge a bike ride can throw at me without complaint. But I don't like bugs.

    Very good finds!
    I’m thinkin’ there might be a more immediate danger at the dented door than HCl acid,

    Good to hear that Covid has not slowed you down. Of course, we would expect nothing less from you Greg!
