I never found that washer I lost the other day but I did make due with some regular flat washers. In the process of putting the seat post back on the bike, the binder bolt stripped out. Luckily, I had a nut that was the right thread pitch and another larger washer. It's not pretty but it is functional. The green bike is a mess. Then I remembered that I had a set of Larsen tubeless tires and figured I'd throw them on. After I got the tubed stuff off the wheels I realized I didn't know where my tubeless valves were so I abandoned that ship. I picked up one of the Larsen tires to look at it and it was really wet. Ruh Roh. I slowly opened up the closet door from wherest the tires had been stored. I knew what the outcome was before I even shined a flashlight in there. The water heater was leaking. It's been making some racket for a while and we've been running out of hot water for a while but I figured it was just sediment. Now it doesn't really matter. I don't even wanna know what that's gonna set us back. I do have a buddy that I think may be able to get me an insiders deal on one though.
I decided to call it quits and go in and relax. I didn't even bother to clean up the garage. When I got to the top of the steps there was a puddle of puke and there Bodhi sat thumping his tail so hard that puke was now all over the place as he flailed it around. Dogs are the best. I couldn't help but pet him a bit before I started cleaning things up.
