  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  7. Last weekend I bought a Peleton bike. We have had it for about 8 days and I have ridden it about 5 of those (tonight should be 6). It's odd, but I like it. I have always liked the high intensity spin type workouts. Get in, get it done, and get off the bike. My lifestyle right now just doesn't work with 2-3 hour road bike rides. It's very interactive, which is cool. I am hoping I can really get into this, I haven't found much to motivate me lately so this is kinda dope.

  8. 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”.

  11. ...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

  13. This Pilated Woodpecker has been responsible for a few trees in the area going down. That means that the tree was probably already in trouble cause he's hunting insects. He's made some holes big enough to put your arm through. We caught this picture just after dawn this morning.

  17. I finally got the bikes out and pumped the tires up. Took it out for a spin. OMG. I'm off for the season! This place is even better than I originally hoped. Turned east on Smith Road and it was like I was riding into Mt. Baker. I'm just starting up again and I'm here to say this county is a bike riders paradise.

  22. We had 75 people come to celebrate the life of Esther. A friend of my son’s flew in from Colorado for the service. His friend Ben’s mom made such an impression on him when he was growing up. I didn’t know how many people would come but but we had a good crowd for a memorial service during Covid. After the dinner a bunch of us went over to Ben’s house so the cousins will have one last chance see each other before my son John takes his family back to Georgia. A family that is real close to Ben’s came over for the day and Ben’s birth mom and her husband were there. Altogether 13 kids and ten adul

  24. will soon be shipped to the local dealer. Our old 20+ year old John Deere 325 has a few 'issues' and when the parts fail, there are no replacement parts. Like the PTO clutch bearings, etc... plus a few other looming problems. We mow about 3+ acres and in the winter the JD 325 is used for plowing snow. The 325 has a hydraulic lift and it's nice easy to use when plowing. The X390 was selected because I wanted a hydraulic lift for the snow blade, or I may splurge and get the snow blower. Side benefit, the hydraulic system is used for power steering too. WoBG will like

  25. My oldest brother just passed on the news. Confirmed it was a heart attack. They’re trying to get him to a hospital in Europe or South Africa for better level of care. He never lost consciousness. That’s about all I know.

  26. My first thought was it's from Petite. I recently shamed her into feeling guilty that she has sent each of you on the forum 6 gifts already and this would be my first. Petite is at home sucking morphine down from a straw so I eliminated her. Then Jsharr. 24 years I've known the bastard. Not 1 Christmas card or even a post in the Happy Birthday Cheese thread. Did Dorothy give him a new heart? Doubtful. My beloved Kirby? Normally yes, but she has already given me the best mug on the face of the earth. I drink my hot chocolate three times a day from that same mug for the last 8 years

  33. I don’t know if this will make you smile but it surely would make my wife smile. My wife was always crocheting blankets for people. When my son John got married he and his wife came up to spend Christmas with us. Esther was making a blanket as she usually did. Our daughter in law was fascinated and wanted to know how to crochet. Esther taught her how and told her you tube could help her if she got stuck. Esther was working on a full size blanket for one of the twins when she got sick. As the blanket progressed I could see she was having a harder time with it than she ever did. Her vision wa

  35. For a guy who hasn't ridden in 9 months, I find having the pedal assist is really a great thing. It's true it does steal away some of the magic knowing I self propelled my way down the road for 20 miles, but really the only thing I notice is that I can go further and faster as my cadence never really changes. The other thing that became clear, is that I no longer had pockets of what I'll call muscle fatigue and I was grinding it out. Oh except once on the steepest hill. But I alleviated that by kicking up the level of assist from the lowest to the middle. If I kicked into the highest I'd

  38. That is sad indeed. Perhaps though, you could one day consider building a house of your own design with one of those shipping container things for extra storage, and maybe even with enough property like a couple acres or so that you could use that for extra bike storage and maybe even squeeze a pump track in between all of that. Crazy idea, I know...
