Sanity Snippet: Biking & ‘Reading’–11/17/21

As of October 24, 2021, Sanity Snippets are snapshots of my daily life, those things I’m doing—such as reading, writing, biking, photographing, and gardening—to maintain sanity while living in the most regressive state imaginable. Alabama.

I’m really enjoying my new bike. Yesterday’s ride was 11.11 miles (a current record for me!) and took just seconds shy of 1 hour 9 minutes. Here’s a portion of that ride—sorry for the quality, and lack of editing. Also, I’m filming on an old Motorola.

I love to ‘read’ while I’m biking. Okay, I’m listening to a book through the Kindle App. Yesterday, I finished Robert Dugoni’s fifth novel in his Tracy Crosswhite series. Man, I aspire to be such a talented author. Read the abstract and start reading or listening to this series through Amazon’s Kindle Unlimited.

Abstract of Close to Home from Amazon:

New York Times bestselling author Robert Dugoni’s acclaimed series continues as Tracy Crosswhite is thrown headlong into the path of a killer conspiracy.

While investigating the hit-and-run death of a young boy, Seattle homicide detective Tracy Crosswhite makes a startling discovery: the suspect is an active-duty serviceman at a local naval base. After a key piece of case evidence goes missing, he is cleared of charges in a military court. But Tracy knows she can’t turn her back on this kind of injustice.

When she uncovers the driver’s ties to a rash of recent heroin overdoses in the city, she realizes that this isn’t just a case of the military protecting its own. It runs much deeper than that, and the accused wasn’t acting alone. For Tracy, it’s all hitting very close to home.

As Tracy moves closer to uncovering the truth behind this insidious conspiracy, she’s putting herself in harm’s way. And the only people she can rely on to make it out alive might be those she can no longer trust.
