Yesteday, I went to the mall. There was a huge Iowa thunderstorm banging around outside. I didn't buy sunglasses, but I did get bike riding stuff in preparation for RAGBRAI, including a CO2 inflator thing, padded pants, and an intertube for the lovely Motobecane that I'm borrowing. When I got home, it took me about an hour and a half to change the rear tire, and as it turned out the best tool for doing that is a butter knife. So much for those tire hot pink levers that I bought.

Yesterday, I went to Grinnell. Planted lots of seeds with Carlos for the circus, fell off of a bike, blew out a tire on the same bike, walked a couple of miles with a flat tire bike in tow, ate fresh asparagus and candied ginger , and took lots of pictures during the drive there and back. Here's a drawing I made inspired by the drive on I-80 and Hwy 6.

I made this drawing right before I left Jacksonville. I was running, and stumbled onto this event happening in my street. I had made all these assumptions about what was happening before I reached the spot where the people were standing. I was completely wrong. Here it is.
