The pain in my neck has changed drastically in the last few days. What used to be a generalized ache in the muscles has now become highly localized to the edges of the dent. There is also a little bit of bruising near where I’m assuming the main blood vessel feeding “Chris Christie” was located. If you go back to the pictures that would be the dark spot at the top of the image of the mass that was removed. But the pain and discomfort around the edge of the dent is the part I find most interesting. All of that is still way less than what I was going through before the operation. And being able to walk upright again? That is F&%(*&^ awesome. I am actively looking forward to being able to get inside the garage and work on getting Blue and Francis/es operational, as soon as the weather breaks a little. Mrs. the Poet is likewise looking forward to a break in the weather so she can mow the lawn. I might have to help her out a bit on that one because the grass is getting a little too tall for her to manage on her own. I have been doing the stuff that required more than just pushing the mower along (fences and other obstructions) but I couldn’t do the whole thing before the operation, my back just wouldn’t take it. But the pain in my neck becoming localized to the edge of the dent, that is fascinating.
The drunk driver that killed a cyclist riding in the Horsey Hundred bike ride in KY continues to generate news items. Police: Cold beer found in cup holder of truck that killed cyclist and Cyclist killed after being hit by vehicle more stupidity Citation: Suspect told officers he had six beers, smoked pot prior to crash that killed cyclist And with the admission of being drunk and stoned we now have a good idea on why the driver was charged with murder so quickly.
Two part Daily Ted, Pt. 1. 58-year old Joshua Tree cyclist killed in high speed rear-end collision and Pt. 2 Morning Links: CicLAvia comes to Pas, PCH hugs it out, and SoCal has one of the world’s best bike lanes
At least this time the cyclist getting shot was not an intended target. Bullets injure three including 14-year-old bike rider
And what is it with cyclists getting hit with bullets lately? Boy, 7, shot while riding bicycle in Dorchester What could a 7YO have done that would cause someone to shoot him?
Things are getting better in Upstate NY? Bicyclists say more drivers are sharing the road I’m tempted to make a comment about Stockholm Syndrome, but I won’t.
A Ghost Bike in NC. GHOST BIKE PLACED IN REMEMBRANCE OF FATAL ACCIDENT I’m not so sure about making the bike a portable memorial, this just sounds like an invitation to steal the thing.
FL infrastructure, where they don’t post the detour for the bikes while they replace the bridge with the bike lane. VENETIAN CAUSEWAY CLOSING COULD SPELL MORE BICYCLE DEATHS There is a reason why “Florida man does something stupid” is an internet meme. Many reasons, this being on the list.
Another data point on the death spiral of the once-great state of Walkerstan, formerly known as Wisconsin. Republican legislators making war on bikes Why cut off your nose to spite your face on this?
Bike Month news from far West Canuckistan. Drivers urged to watch for cyclists
And more on the ride to protest what looks like defunding the Workman’s Comp system in the Great White North. Injured workers stop in Brockville Tuesday during 600-km bike ride
And I’m out of links again.
