  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. 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

  4. 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

  5. Nothing exploded after we came home. The first photo is from a picnic dinner Wednesday evening on the eastern slope of my local mountain. The other two are about three hours from ABQ.

  7. 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

  8. 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.

  9. It is good to see you came to us first. You should probably gift it to me and avoid the tax hit.

  10. 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,

  11. 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

  12. 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.

  13. I saw yeast the last couple of times I was in the grocery store, so yeast producers appear to have caught back up to demand. That said, I don't have to worry about yeast because Aire sent me a package of it (a pound of the very best stuff, no less) at the height of the pandemic shortages when there was none to be found anywhere. I have blitzed through a third of it so far. Every time I make pizza, which is at least a couple of times a week, I think of Aire and smile a big smile while I think of how awesome and cool she is! Thanks, Aire!

  15. Just to update... I made it home just fine. I was working in an area that was very close to a bridge, it's a section of downtown that is well west of the main area of downtown. There was not much going on where I was at. I am scheduled there again tomorrow. I painted the legs of my table, helped Griffin cook dinner and helped Emmy do her pitching drills outside. And I tried to explain to them what was going on with the people on the TV. Then I slept about 9 hours last night. It was glorious.

  17. When I was a kid, one next door neighbor rented out their house and several families were living in it. They had numerous cars & felt the street in front of their house was their parking so would yell at my oldest brother not to park there. My brother repeatedly told them to F’ off. Well one night somebody broke into his car, put in in neutral, released the brake and pushed it down the street. My brother was pissed but never said a word about revenge. However a few nights later someone punctured all 4 tires on every one of their cars. Someone also shimmied up the power li

  23. ...if it makes you feel any better, the first two flights of Sandhill cranes flew over my house today. They come every year to winter over and nest down in the river sloughs and flooded fields south of me. They've been doing this a very long time.

  29. I don't agree. What are they hoping to accomplish by inconveniencing hospital patients, visitors, or staff? I would not have been as patient. I don't go to work because I love the long hours or small (comparable) pay. I do it because I believe in the mission of my hospital, to take care of people.

  30. Walked about 3 miles push mowing the yard. Took the MTB over to Dark Island Trail and did about 1 2/3 laps. I was running out of gas on the 2nd lap so turned back at the highway. Cold front coming. Temperature dropped from 91 to 81 on the ride. Very dry and dusty.

  33. Nope. I wired all 4 wires. The tab is knews to me.......I did see it on the outlet on the low side but it didn't register to me that there might be one on the other side as well. Anyway, that proves that community knowledge is kinda cool to have.

  40. Meet Oscar. His owners took the sick little guy to the vet and found out he had parvo. They were going to put him down, but the vet tech called Dallas Street Dog Advocates, who took Oscar in and paid for his treatments. Looks like Oscar won over Parvo, but it was touch and go the last few days.

  41. It’s a beautiful day so I invited the grands over for a swim before I winterize the pool. They are busy today but will come over tomorrow afternoon. How many kids will actually swim in the pool? I’m betting Cora the nine year old for sure. Her 12 year old sister will not be shown up by a nine year old. The seven year old is anyone’s guess. I’m guessing her sisters will talk her into it. The five year old may not even put on her suit, she is a girlie girl. The three year old twin buddies will probably start out in the hot tub and then decide they just have to jump in with their sisters.
