For learning how to fix your own bike, Ann Arbor's own co-op, Common Cycle, is a fantastic resource. Open Sundays 11-3 at 416 W Huron.

Spent the morning volunteering as a mechanic for the first time.

Observations: if you get there at 11 it's pretty quiet. After 12:30 and you might have to wait.

Cool group of people there!

new front door in progress. Thanks Habitat ReStore for the new old stock '60s door I knew I would find there.

also had a good coffee with @ed_packet this morning for my day 1.

coffeeneuring is a great excuse to get out and ride in this fall weather.

Cider mill 2 is Parshallville, an old timey place right down the road. It's a little more off the beaten path and less Carney.

The line is long but after a half hour, success! We are eating greasy sugary donuts and sticky caramel apples, washing it down with cider in the sunshine.

Today playing the cider mill game. which cider mill will prove fruitful for Erich and family?

Mill 1: Spicer's. this mill north of Howell has grown immensely over the years. It's a carnival atmosphere and the lines are hours long on a nice day.

Today is a nice day. We bail.

also if anyone wants to meet for some coffee by bike Sunday on bike I'm game

week two of biking to work and it's gotten easier. Makes me wonder why I didn't earlier.

Buckle up and mark your calendars.

UMich is hosting a presidential debate on 10/15/2020.


Rode in to work early today, had a meeting at 0700.

My front light is sufficient for being seen but jeez Gallup is dark at 0630. Also deer are terrifying.

This is my tiny walkable neighborhood on a 65 degree day. We are having a fall festival in a central location no more than a mile from the furthest home in the 'hood.

And this is how people choose to arrive.

There is an empty bike rack (except for my two kids' bikes) nearby.

please ban cars.

Daughter came home with homework that requires a website login. Website login requires me to scan QR code. QR code provided is extremely blurry and leads me to silicone nipples on Amazon.

homework done I guess!

I am, ahem, very nostalgic at this moment.

I can almost smell the pizza rolls in the toaster oven.

Odd request- does anyone here have an overhead transparency projector I can borrow?

I am not much of an architectural photographer, but it would be fun to do a series of Alden B. Dow's work locally. His stuff is interesting and controversial.

Daughter- where are we going?

daughter - oh yay!

wife- HUZZAH!!

daughter, embarrassed tone - seriously?

Warning to parents - last night I downloaded Untitled Goose Game. My son was enjoying it a bunch.

This morning I find he is running around honking and stealing things to get me to chase him.
