No one has asked about the bike. Is the bike OK?
Ha, yeah, the bike (Specialized TriCross) is fine but due for a replacement anyway.

Mom gets her stitches out today and the doc will decide what the next steps are. It sounds like she'll be referred to a wound clinic for debriding of any necrotic skin that appears.

The lawyers contacted the dog's owner to get in touch with the insurance company's legal team. One of Mom's lawyers is a dog bite specialist who even won a case where a police dog bit an innocent person ($150K). It would seem Mom is in good hands but, having seen all of the typos and grammatical errors in their letter to the dog's owner, well, I'm not sure if they're playing "crazy like a fox" or just need to hire a new person to take their dictations.

Glad your mom is in good hands. Best of luck to her and her lawyers.

(I wouldn't sweat the typos; with this tight labor market and these kids today running roughshod over grammar and spelling rules (e.g., O UR 2馃榿), good help can be hard to find.)

Their crappy grammar is entirely our fault.we are obsessed with their reading and writing as early as possible and we screwed them over with phonics to that end. Then we blame them for crappy grammar after that鈥檚 what we taught them... My experience with young people today is that they are smarter and harder working than generations before them. I鈥檝e spent years,decades, immersed in their presence.

That said, I鈥檝e never seen a letter from an attorney that had crappy grammar. Never. I鈥檓 not saying it鈥檚 suspect, it鈥檚 just weird. They are content maniacs, and that extends to the repercussions of grammar (see Bill Clinton on is/was).

Dogs have ruined one of the nation鈥檚 best county parks to hikers and cyclists. Off-leash dogs are particularly a problem for mountain bikers. The beaches and trails have become dog dangerous so much so that people are now avoiding them.

So many dog owners suck.

Most dog walkers I see have control of their dogs if un-leashed, it's the dogs on the 30ft retractable leashes, with the owner who has his/her head up his/her ass while paying no mind to the dog, or anything else, that bothers me.

Honest question. I'm not from a "dog loving culture", so I ask this in honesty. Why do Americans love dogs so much that they treat them like humans? When I read on neighborhood websites like Nextdoor, I see a lot of people who are ready and willing to bash the homeless and all the issues associated with homelessness, victim shaming is common. But these same folks go to great extents to defend their dogs and use descriptives equating their lovely dogs to human-like. I'm sure I'm oversimplying the social behaviors of these folks and their dogs, but may be this is because I'm not a dog owner. And of course, each time I see a discarded "blue bag" of dog poop on the trail, I'm constantly forced to reevaluate the behaviors of all dog owners, because we're not talking about just "one bad apple" here, but a lot of bad apples, a systemic pattern of disregard for common community rules.
