Winter bicycle grime

Needs a mudflap

I cut through Sellwood Park when I last went down to Oaks Park to trainspot and there were enough wet pine needles on the path to liberally cover the parts of my frame that weren’t protected by the front fender.

All attempts to blackmail me for undisclosed undocumented visits to XXX websites. All to the same stupid bitcoin wallet. All threatening to send this documentation to my business contacts within 48 hours.

It’s a change from viagra spam & the traditional “I want to do a crime, can you help?” inquiries from various African central bankers. I don’t find it very convincing, oddly enough (something about them blowing their threat deadlines 14 times and counting now, though I was not convinced when I got the first sendmail -f last month.) But it does make a nice lineup in my spam folder.

A single car sits on the tail track south of the terminal at Clackamas Town Center. Out of service because of a mechanical problem, or expecting a heavy passenger load soon?
