Heating oil season

Oil delivery

Time to start filling up the oil tank, 5 gallons at a time & saving 20¢/gallon while I’m doing it.

A UP freight works its way south towards what used to be Brooklyn Yard.


Sigh

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?

Tweaking the born-again Trek

New bars & chainrings

I moved the C13 saddle over from the Mountainhack, replaced the pseudo-ergo Kestrel (EMS pro?) handlebars with a set of traditional bend Easton bars that had been kicking around in my bike mess for a while, then tossed the 50/39 round chainrings in favor of a 52/42 v2 Biopace pair.

Détente

Two dozing cats

Mavis & Ozymandias are creeping towards an accomodation. Thor & Mavis, not so much, but baby steps are still steps.

Hoverrack of the day

10x8 inside-out hoverrack

A 10×7.5" rack fitted to a Elephant NFE fork. Currently hovering because I need to verify the alignment before gluing on the fork leg stay and crown braces.

Trolley picture of the day

A northbound train on the viaduct south of downtown Milwaukie

A northbound train on the Tri-Met viaduct just south of downtown Milwaukie (not on the trestle; the viaduct is adjacent to and a little bit higher than the trestle.)

Floof

Floofy paw

Thor and (to a lesser extent) Ozymandias have long fur growing out of the bottom of their paws. This makes cornering on hardwood floors less effective than it would be on a shorthaired cat.

Never turn your back

Never set down a glass of water

I’d poured myself a glass of water, but then stepped away for a second and someone decided to help herself to a drink.
