  2. She was working on a full size blanket for each of the twins when she died. I saw she was struggling with it and encourage her to finish it the size it is. She said no I want to add one more section or it won’t look right. She wasn’t able to finish it. I didn’t know what to do with it and my daughter in law said “I’ll finish it for you dad, Esther taught me how to crochet”. They are packing to drive back to Georgia right now. She finished the blanket this morning.

  3. I know most people get tired of these pics, but I just couldn't help myself. My son just sent this to me. This pic was taken right after she was told that her grandfather is a Road Runner. She seems to be doing a good job of hiding her disappointment.

  6. Today was the first time I used the live update on my shiny new garmin computer. Left at around 5:30 put in a 30 mile out n back. Asked my wife if she got the email (she's on the notification) and she said sure. I was kinda excited interested and followed up with how'd it look. She said it was kinda boring. The dot was moving so slow. That hurt honey, that hurt.

  7. I haven’t mentioned this in the cafe but I posted about it on other parts of the forum and other places. Just thought it was time I let you in on it. Greetings John, Thank for your recent order of a new Lynskey GR300. Based on our current inventory levels, your frame is in production and your order is estimated to ship on or before 4/30/21. We will do our best to have your order re

  8. After blowing out my Achilles, 2 surgeries and 3 years of rehab, Selling my optometry practice, moving from basically sea level in texas to 8000 ft in New mexico, gaining weight, trying to peddle essentially one legged up the steep forest road we live on and becoming more and more frustrated with my inability to ride, I bought an Orbea FS Wild e bike. Freaking game changer, I can ride again comfortably and with a smile on my face. Yeah its a bit of a cheat but hey...I make no excuses and I'm not in competition with anyone. I can now ride the 400 ft elevation change in the mile it takes to get

  14. I didn’t ride this week, and by Thursday I was kind of lost. Just a 12 mile ride this morning and I’ve got a vision for finishing up the school year. I can see how important my commute is to the work I do.

  16. and the last Friday of my teaching career, my supervisor called me on the phone. He sang the chorus to "We are the Champions," by Queen. Let me explain. Yesterday I submitted the End-of-Year Reflection in my teacher evaluation portfolio. The last question is "What else would you like to say about this school year? [Optional]" So, I posted the lyrics to the song "We are the Champions." You'll recall, it goes like this... I've paid my dues Time after time I've done my sentence But committed no crime And bad mistakes I've made a few I've had my share of sand Kic

  17. The weather was a perfect 85° and sunny day for biking. Wo46 and I found this nice intermediate single track trail about 50 miles from home. I took a few photos from their website. And for @AirwickWithCheese After biking we stopped I a little one tavern town for some carbohydrate replenishment therapy because we forgot to bring a couple of parking lot beers. It was the perfect day.

  19. So my wife and I took a late nap yesterday afternoon. Got up around 7:00 pm, which of course meant I would be up pretty late. I think I actually got to sleep around 3:00 am. But anyway, when I did go back to bed, my PVCs (heart issue) were acting up pretty strongly. It’ll stop every 6 to 8 beats and then start back up with a powerful contraction. It’s uncomfortable, but it is what it is. However, after lying there feeling it for about 20 minutes, my heart stopped. Literally. My hands and feet began going numb. My vision/awareness began tunneling. I reached up to my throat to feel

  20. I waited a year (and a little) and sold the Bend house after Mrs Scrapr passed. I like Bend & the house there a lot. But the pandemic really isolated me (beyond not having the company of my wife). The listing went live on a Friday. There were a kajillion showings. On Monday afternoon we had 13 offers in hand. i chose one. I bought a home back in the area that I had 30+ years in with lots of friends & work associates. The new house is even better than I expected. Very walkable with a nature trail that connects to the neighborhood. Lots of parks. 2 within about 200' (that is 61 meters in

  25. Day 7 of paint work... The lead guy said they are going to try to finish today but if not for sure Monday. I have a tablet for the YouTube’s, talk to neighbors & basically just chill on my sons gaming chair feet propped on a cooler or lie on my makeshift bed. Paint & drywall looks awesome though, these guys are really good. As much as it’s a PITA I’m glad we didn’t hotel it as the projects have gone over budget and hotel with a dog would have been $1,500 -$2000. And here’s to another day of garage living...

  27. It’s a gravel touring bike. I bought a titanium rear rack with it too. I guess I’ll have to order new panniers for it when I get my strength back. My panniers are looking pretty shabby after all the years/miles I put on them. I was going to wait for my cardiologist to say I was going to get better but I feel better every day, I can do this.

  28. Updated the website with links to the various vendors. The two noted "Soon" are placeholders as submitted, but reviewed before active which will take a couple of days. Will update the links at that time and remove "Soon". Comments and suggestions welcome. I ordered a paperback from Amazon that arrived yesterday...and wife was impressed. Enough said! Haven't seen the Barnes and Noble paperback yet as said 2 to 4 week and I will be out of town during that time. Hardback had some text overlap on cover that is being resolved and the reason it is "Soon." Just set Google's up today and under st

  32. The siding should be done by Monday. Supposedly sheetrock next week, DH. The color of the shingles ("Georgetown Gray") and siding ("Oxford Blue") look like the stuff we picked out, not the online-version where the shingles were dark and the siding was almost totally gray. I like the windows now that they're on the house. Fake white shutters will go on either side of the front windows and white trim in places. Here's the front door - I didn't want to interrupt the workers to get a better picture - I'll do that next week.

  37. BuffCarla’s friend’s husband was legally blind until 2005, when he was in a bad accident and lost all of his sight. He’s 61 years old and does a good job managing without sight. Runs his own one man business as a government contractor supplying military bases with food. This weekend gives me a new appreciation for meeting such challenges head on. His wife and family help and act as his eyes. Quite impressive.

  40. My son just left to go back to Georgia. This is my first time alone in this big house. We stood in the driveway saying goodbye for about an hour. We had multiple hugs with everyone and photos. He couldn’t bring himself to get in the car and go. I finally said “You better get in and start driving, you got a long way to go”.

  42. ...I love you guys! Yesterday I had a text conversation with UglyBob, he and his wife sent RO more bath bombs, which she loves beyond all reason. I hope this fun never dies, she just digs them and I don't have to talk her to the bathtub at all when bath bombs are involved. Just previous to that, there was a big package for me, the long delayed table set arrived! Woot! It went together smooth like butter, too, I only had to finesse one chair cushion, and just a touch at that. It really looks like something I would have designed if I had talent that way, and it absolutely fits in p
