another fine sinus infection

Toronto, 2017.05.19

I don't understand how I keep getting sinus infections - Spring has been here for a while! Post-nasal drip has me coughing all night, I sound like I've been dead and raised by some necromancer. Raspily chanting, "braaaains" as I stumble through the day.

Three reasons to be thankful:

  1. I reached out to the sister of my recently deceased friend. Happily, she remembered our meeting once in 2003!
  2. Earlier in the week, The Boy lost a rather expensive lure (by our standard) on its first outing. I did a bit of research and learned how to recreate it for a quarter of the price.
  3. I noticed that I have now saved over $7,000 in TTC fairs by cycling, over the past six years. After all the expenses on bikes and gear and repairs and maintenance, that comes to a savings of more than $2,800.

Me too... me too Michael. 3rd since January, maybe 6-7 in a year?


Third since January for me, too. Awful.


rand()m quote

(In which I leave the final word to someone else.)

It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by the dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions and spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who, at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly; so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory or defeat.

-Theodore Roosevelt, Jr.
