June 30th

Another bloody hot day.  Vic went down to Los Gatos to see her mother, so Tilly and I mainly hid from the heat.  I took the front wheel off the mountain bike, and found the tyre full of little thorns.  Luckily there only seem to be 3 punctures, but obviously they're all right next to moulding lines on the tube.  I've patched them as well as I can (Tilly was most upset at me using her paddling pool to test for leaks), but I had a thicker (and heavier) "puncture resistant" tube in the garage, so I've thrown that in there for now.  I just have to wait for the rear to get holed now, and try to find another puncture resistant tube for that, too.
