  1. A good looking bike dude decided to marry a bike gal. They had their bikes at the altar front of the room. The bikes were covered with flowers. The food was divine. A good time was had by all.

  2. Wo46 and I had a good sidecar race but could only get 2nd place. We did shave 9 seconds off of last years fastest lap time. Our son finished 2nd in his race with a drag race to the finish and lost by .046 of a second. But out of all the losers we are the best losers.

  3. mr. and I celebrated 28 years together this past Saturday. But, I almost took out a lease on an apartment last week Monday, I was so done with being called mentally ill in various ways. But, that argument faded and then passed. It’s complicated. We’re going forward with kitchen remodel plans. Living year 29 together.

  4. The Bend home is going on the market Sept 25th. Talked to a realtor friend this week and was thinking to list it after the new house closes & the rent back period is done. then she says why don't you rent back? Duh! So try to get it done before November. She says it will sell one day. Listing price at the price another house got in March. But anticipate multiple offers & over asking. So I'm getting ready for pictures on the 21st. The new home closes next week on the 10th. I'll go back to Portland for that then run back to Bend & finish getting ready for pictures. All the pers

  5. 1. The toilet is big because this was supposed to be a room for people over 400 pounds. Then they found out that no one told the architect and the door frame will not accommodate The bigger beds. They fold to get into the room but once the patient is in, they cannot roll them out the door for surgery, etc.... 2. The pace maker may be defective. More on this on Monday. 3. The medicine did not have any life altering consequences but also hasn’t been beneficial. ( of course this is likely inconclusive if the pace maker is actually defective). 4. I am not at the hospit

  6. I say to hubby “yay, packages!” he says ... “We are not expecting anything.” The driver gets out and yup....looks like we are getting a package. with great anticipation, I ripped it open. I didn’t even look at the return addy. It was an amazing gift from the lovely man that we all adore. JSHARR! He sent me coffee. I am so super excited. I am ashamed to say that we usually buy cheap coffee. Well, not Folgers, but lower quality. Like, Gervalia, and other decent grounds that are on sale. so this is a huge treat. Yay @jsharr Thank you 🙏

  9. Fired up the sidecar today with a different motor today. It's actually 3 different motors put together so we can race the final race of the year. The motor only has to last one weekend. Than I have a few months to build a monster motor for next year.

  11. I live on a cul de sac that has about 8 condo units in the cul de sac. The mailboxes for all the units are at the entrance to the cul de sac. Every day the mail gets delivered sometime between 2 and 3. As soon as the mail truck leaves, a number of the residents come racing out of their units to get their mail. One of them acts very casual and goes for her walk at that time, but she never starts her walk until after the mail arrives and she always stops at the mail box. She can pretend she's just exercising, but I know shes part of the Running of the Retirees. I've learned a lot since I

  14. Mom of 7 fell in the bathroom this morning and hit her head. She seemed more out of sorts than normal so they sent her to the ER. X-rays were taken and she has a cervical collar on and doesn’t like it. Blood work has been ordered but not drawn yet. She doesn’t remember that she broke a rib last month and that is why her side hurts. I told her, “ you have CRS”. She said, “what’s CRS?” “Can’t remember shit”. She did smile though. She will be moving to a memory care place soon. Either in the same building or to where my sister is at.

  16. We have picked out all the finish things, and only had one disagreement on a bathroom pedestal sink. He said we need cabinets and storage at every possible place. I caved. All of the finish things have been picked. We even know the color roof we want. Light grey. More good news. We are all approved for a standard septic (which is the cheaper kind and less hassle). I have a big replacement field area in the event that i need additional lines. Everyone at the city has been amazing. One person told me that we would need our plans drawn by the septic guy.

  19. My neighbor Nanette and I headed out about 10:15..the plan..drive east...loop Stillwater, White Bear to home with a possible shopping stop or farm stand. We started at Walgreens down the street..and headed toward Stillwater. I totally spaced the changes with the "new" bridge..So we ended up in WI. No biggie..we went to Hudson, walked the main drag..went into a few stores..I got a simple black & gray dress for $35.We went to a different (for us) restaurant for sammies for lunch..it was okay..but nothing about it said let's come back here again. We did sit next to the deck and the fall colo

  20. Wade put new taars on his Tahoe yesterday. He is 19 and wants a cool looking truck, so he went with a semi aggressive all terrain tire. Looks damn good, and I bit my tongue and did not get on him about mileage and wear and road noise. He can learn about that when his is old and grumpy. It was cool to see how proud he was of the tires.

  22. after the Cardiologist visit. Wo7 and I went to a local bar and grill and ate outside. Sitting alone at a table next to us was an older woman wearing a mask. She was wearing a knitted sweater. My wife asked if she had made it. No, someone gave it to me. That started a conversation that went on for a while. Wo7 had brought some masks that she was sewing for kids for the county volunteers. The lady complimented the masks so Wo7 gave her one. She was joined by another older lady and they were old friends who hadn’t seen each other in two years. The friend received a mask too. The first woman, is

  26. Had to go to the coast today and decided to get an early start and make the 8:45AM launch. My worst fear was having to shoot east into the morning sun. Far better with afternoon or evening. Once got past the morning ground haze, wasn't too bad.

  29. The pandemic was just the push I needed to do what I should have done long ago. I used to enjoy going to the gym, but more and more, I find it an exercise in frustration. Mostly, the frustration stems from inconsiderate slobs who can't be bothered to put weight back where they belong, can't seem to bring themselves to wipe down benches and machines when they're done, and park themselves on machines between sets with ear buds plugged into their heads so they can conveniently ignore anyone who might ask to work in. Anyway, my wife and I had the discussion about investing in a home gym,

  30. So I went to Road America for the day. It's something about watching vintage cars and motorcycle racing that I like. It's funny to see a car racing with the same tires that you have on your sidecar. The guy who owned this was a factory superbike racer in the 70s and still has the superbike my favorite car of the day

  31. In honor of our anniversary, I went searching for one of my favorite threads. I searched for all the "story of" threads and it made me happy to see how many "story" threads were posted by other people. But this one is probably my favorite - it combines family, the Catskills and it even is cycling related. And this is to make the post more festive for the anniversary party:

  34. My real reason for the trip yesterday was a mini-trip to some areas south for photos supporting the book. The early launch just moved my clock forward, and going straight rather than turning south where normally would. Needed pictures of an art museum, a wildlife are never been to, and re-do some beach/inlet photos that were quite dated. While it is normal to see gators, but I have NEVER seen a barracuda. Also, the Sebastian Inlet State Park expanded to both sides and was amazed how deserted the beach was. Then realized the the County has multiple free parks directly on the ocean spread

  35. Sometimes we forget to count blessings first. I found myself in that situation today. I had been to the hospital trying to keep Einstein’s spirits up but he is pretty low today. He has seen three covering cardiologists this weekend. Each has a different theory. Still waiting on the guys from Boston Scientific but they don’t work weekends so no news on whether the unit is defective. We were walking in the halls round and round and round so many people look much worse than he does. I stay a little longer than I should and then go to leave. There is a very peaceful protest in front of

  36. Man you have to watch those bastiges. I was paying about $8 a month and got my auto renewal notice, $20 a month! Yeah F that so I called to cancel the service. Oh wait Mr ChrisL, we want to keep you as a loyal customer, we can keep the existing rate. You know, that’s OK, just cancel me. Oh wait, I found a better offer $6.50 a month. You know my wife was laid off, this really isn’t an expense I need (not entirely true but wanted to see what they would do). Oh I’m so sorry Mr ChrisL, how about I take that down to $5.50 a month including taxes & fees. OK that I can do.

  44. Back from Murphreesboro. Had softball all weekend. Cleaning blood today. 1.5 X the pay and 1/2 the patients. I’ll take it! G ran a PR yesterday. 20:56. He’s geeked up about running. Even though it’s evil I’ll allow it because it’s good to see him geeked up and competing. High school Xc has saved him. His goal is to go sub 20:00 by the end of the season. Emmy was Emmy this weekend. She was all intense and stuff. I got zero pics of G because no spectators were allowed.
