Podcast! Audible! Bike! 5.17.20

Tim A. Cummins @ 9:50 pm  

I studied Spanish and did my brain training this morning.

Beautiful day here in the ATL.

I listened to my friend Tito Ruiz preach on “Peace.”

Had a good talk with my buddy Anthony Jacquin and his wife.

I went to Stone Mountain today.

I’m going to start recording and doing my calls from there. I get a great cell signal and it’s so beautiful. It takes me about ten minutes to get there from my house.

Expecting some storms to roll through the ATL tonight.

Rode my bike 15.24 miles.

On my ride, I saw a dead owl. That made me sad.

I also saw a gaggle of geese. They always remind me of cows eating grass.

I listened to Harry Potter while I was riding my bike.

I have “easy” days and a “hard” days when I ride my bike. On “easy” days, I listen to radio from Madrid or to Harry Potter in Spanish. My “hard” days I review all the scripture and poetry that I can quote. It takes about an hour to go through everything that I know. Then I listen to Spanish for the last thirty minutes.

I got a notice from Audible that my membership was getting ready to renew. I had 12 credits that I hadn’t listened to so far. So I downloaded 12 books and I canceled my membership at least for now. If I didn’t use those credits in another two weeks I would lose them! That’s crazy talk.

I’ve got a good supply of material to listen to now. I downloaded 11 out of 12 items in Spanish.

It’s just my preferred way to listen to things now. Just seems like I’m studying while I’m listening to things. I get about 80% of most of what I hear. Sometimes almost everything. It reminds me of biking. If I bike every day, I get stronger and stronger. If I listen to Spanish and study every day, I just get better and better.

I recorded a new episode of Verbal Surgery called “Wandering Wondering.”

It’s a good one.

The episodes with the 999 numbers were recorded before the Covid lockdown, but they’re still new.

Watered my plants after I got home.
