  1. Shared from my Facebook posting regarding our Finish The Ride tonight... Finish The Ride. Tonight we finished the ride that our friends didn't get a chance to finish last week. I spoke to several riders from the Chaingang that missed last weeks ride for one reason or another. We all shared that moment of shock and sadness. I got to ride with Daughter #2 and several of my Chaingang friends. I missed Tony and Larry. I kept expecting to see them, both when we were getting ready and during the ride. The ride was great. We got to be led by Lance, escorted the entire way by three po

  8. Picked her up this afternoon. She was a bit stressed on the car ride home. Took a 2 hour nap on the porch. Then we got out in the grass to play. Then dinner. Breeder said a full cup. That is what our full grown Golden's got. So I was sceptical. I put down 3/4 cup and she ate it right down. I'll let you know how 2:00 am potty is.

  9. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I was making lunch and heard a rap at the door. I went to the door as the UPS guy was walking down the driveway. I picked up the large heavy box and was surprised by the weight. I was expecting a box of medical supplies today, pads, wipes, lotions, and drugs. The hospice nurse said they should be delivered today. I set the box down and went back to making lunch. We had our lunch and I did a load of laundry, sheets, gowns,towels, etc. I finally sat down and was checking the forum. Finally I decided to open the box and see what all supplies I got. That’s when I s

  10. I thought it was going to be an easy thing to do but it wasn't. I have a ton of respect for the manager I called yesterday. His character inspires me; he's a really good man. But, he doesn't run the company. He doesn't make staffing decisions and I'm certain he has a directive to bleed out the last of the blood of every employee (this might sound dramatic but I wouldn't be surprised if it is true). I have three co-workers I adore and love; which also made this decision to leave a hard one. Anyway, I'm moving on to a place where my schedule allows me to go back to school. The new com

  17. You all know that WoScrapr passed almost a year ago. Our boy (he's 24) texts me tonight out of the blue & says do you have dreams about Mom? I reply funny you should ask. Last night she touched my arm when I was sleeping. She startled me & I woke up. I think if I had not woke up we might have hugged. So young Scrapr says she came to me last night & hugged me & sang to me. I think young Scrapr was a bit freaked out about it. But he said the hug was really good Both on the same night. We are checking with other good friends to see if she came to them. I had only 1 othe

  19. Over the last couple weeks at work I was helping out a fellow employee.. unbenounced to me, my boss actually had me training for his spot when he decided to leave the company and go back to school full time. Monday was his last day. While working with him, I was told I was just going to fill the job till a replacement could be found.. I was cool wit that since I have no idea what all his job intails. Today as I was working away at the job, I was pulled aside by my leader and was told I have that spot in the company if I want it. HELL YA... I want that job... not only do I get away

  22. Now I really feel like @Randomguy. I didn’t see anything there w/ massage chick. Too much baggage and she seemed pushy as to start something. What really shocked me was she’s still married but estranged from him. I’m not signing up for a Jerry Springer episode. Anywho, the chick I went out w/ last night seemed like a no brainer. She’s a very avid cyclist, my age, good lookin’, nice butt, and oh yeah, in my bike club. We’ve known each other for a few years (since she joined) and have ridden together countless times on club rides. I was messaging w/ her Saturday night, eventually asked her out

  27. “For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.” Where there is death there is also life. Where there is heartache, there is also joy. This is the great dichotomy of life. This week, I welcomed my fourth grandchild into the world: And this one is my namesake. 😊 My heart is truly overwhelmed. And though life takes from us, it also gives. And I am truly blessed with my children and the beauty they’ve created in this world. Peace

  30. 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.

  31. Found this project on the interweb and decided to make it. HoSmudge helped me a bit with the cutting; he held the board while I used the chop saw. He also neatened up the pieces when he noticed the chop saw was set at 1° rather than at 0°. Other than that, it was all smudge. P.S. Glued wood pieces are slippery and tricky to screw down!

  33. Einstein was almost released from his two preoperative procedures. He was awake. He drank the ginger ale. They were decreasing the pressure on the band holding his artery closed. Then he had an allergic reaction to something. Then it started spurting blood in a rather dramatic quantity through the hole in his wrist. Now we ae in the wait mode again. Overall he is pretty durn healthy for a heart patient and all should go well with next week's surgery.

  34. G ran a PR today. Big Xc meet in Columbus IN. This high school thing is really getting intense. His goal was to run 22 something this season. 2 weeks ago he ran a 23:08 in Louisville with side stitches that forced him to slow down at the end. Today no side stitches but he has some mild shin splints. There are only 3 freshmen on the team. The upperclassmen are running closer to 16 min races. So clearly he has work to do. But he has shaved about 4 min off his 5k time this season. I am pretty stinking proud.

  36. Started at 6am this morning. After a relatively flat start we headed up of Bear Notch. Not a terribly hard or long climb but enough to know you climbed. That was followed by an awesome decent back to the valley. Then began the long climb up through Crawford Notch. The last mile or so was 13%. We drove down it yesterday and it really looked hard. Actually it wasn’t nearly as bad as expected. Once over the top we had about 30 miles of rolling terrain. This is when it really started getting warm, 85 or so. Then we made the 11 mile climb through Pinkham Notch. Long but not real steep. That was fol

  38. So my knee ended up being a stage 2 rupture of the quadricep tendon. No surgery, just physical therapy. The even expect me back on a bike this year. In oncology news, CT directly after radiation showed nothing concrete but also nothing too concerning to them, yet. No tumors so I'll take the win there. Only potential issue is my jaw bone is still heavily bruised and showing signs of blood starvation. CT in another month, hyperbaric chamber then too to try and save it if it is dying from the exposure. So overall pretty good outlook short term. Nothing life ending, maybe altering but th

  39. No new lesions in the C-spine, T-spine or L region. There was one very small lesion in the right hemisphere of my brain. It was not active, but it was new from the last images from 2014. So, the results mean that I am still kicking ass on the MS front. This is very good news.

  40. Long and sappy so you might want to skip this. Today I took Tillie to the Rochester Children's Book Festival. There were like a million kids running around all day. We were situated right outside the area where authors were reading to kids. So in like 20 minute intervals we were flooded with kids exiting the space. In between, it was quieter with just a couple of kids at a time. The idea was that kids could read to the dogs if they wanted but today they were much more interested in petting and visiting. At a quiet time. I little girl stood near Tillie. The girl was timid and shy so I ha

  42. and those that came in stayed and had a few drinks. My debut last night went fairly well. I messed up more than several songs, both lyric and chord wise, but I just kept playing like it was normal. Several people came up after I had finished and said they liked it. I can do better so I'll have to polish it up a bit. Totaled about 2 hours of playing time. My finger tips need more callouses.

  44. I worked Saturday at the LBS. Busy day as it was sunny and pleasant out and everyone wanted to buy a bike and ride. A family of four comes in to get a bike for their 9 year old daughter. The 7 year old already has a bike. I look at the girl and she fits a 24" kids bike fine. But I'm thinking she is going to hit the hormone highway real soon. I ask the 'rents to humor me and take them back to the adult mountain bikes. Set up a 13" WSD entry level bike and explain the near future to Mom and Dad. They are shocked that she fits a adult bike and like the fact that she will ride this bike thru high

  45. If your reading this then lets assume you know how to keep your big mouth and swarthy fingers silent. I know quite a few of you on social media and this cannot leak there. I'll assume at this point you agree to keep this only on here and are now privy to this news. Some might be asking why then should I be telling you something I can't tell on the book-of-faces, groupme's, twitters, and instagrammies? Because I can't keep it in!!!! TIL
