Pests

This morning, former Wisconsin Governor Tommy Thompson addressed the Iowa Delegation on behalf of his organization fighting chronic disease. He spoke of his own surgeries and told a typically Thompson story about banning smoking in HHS buildings while he was secretary. He also encouraged delegates to walk or exercise.

Ok, ok, I get it. I took my bicycle out for about 10miles this morning. Near the halfway point of the ride, I felt something bouncing off my shins. I figured out that it was some kind of bug and when I looked closely I saw it was grasshoppers. My road bike has hollow aluminum Velocity Deep-V rims and when the grasshoppers bounced off the spkes, they made a resonant pinging sounds.

As I was riding, I saw yet another pest so I took this photo.
