The Mother of all Cactus Needles

Wow, those are some humongous sharp needles on this cactus!

When I checked out from the store with this deadly plant, the cashier oulls the cactus from the shopping cart and gets one of the pins stuck right in her finger. 

It was just sort of caught there with the other end hanging out a couple of inches from her finger.

A little shocked and not sure what to say, I just sort of stumbled “Oh, Are you okay? I so sorry!”

She said she was and reached over and plucked the needle out holding her hand limply in the other. 

On the way home then, this guy says to me, “you better not sit on that thing.” 

Ah yeah, you’re not kidding! 😉

Fun and Good Exercise

Man, does that look fun!

Also, I understand you can get some pretty good exercise paddleboarding.

My only concern would be sharks.

Don’t bright colors and strong motion attract them?  

You’ve got to be brave, but not stupid. 😉

Artsy Bike

This is an artistic bike in Washington, D.C. 

Like a newspaper, it’s black and white and “read” or actually rode all over. 

How much time do you give a bike like this before it gets stolen on the streets downtown?

D.C. seems to be getting even worse than before, now with Coronavirus and the riots.  

Doesn’t feel safe, and it’s in definite need of an urban makeover from all the horrible poverty and homelessness.  😉
