  1. Banner outgrew his size large dog crate. They tried shutting him in their bedroom when they go somewhere without him. He did puppy stuff like tear up the toilet paper and dump the trash can and scratch at the door. They decided they needed to buy an extra large dog crate. They found one on Facebook marketplace. Bought it and brought it home and set it up. This thing is huge, you could fit a donkey in there.
  2. She’ll be coming round the mountain doing ninety When the chain on her bicycle broke And she landed in the grass with a sprocket up her axle.
  3. Owl put it up with the other thread.
  4. I never had any heart issues or heart attacks until I started taking Crestor for high cholesterol. After it got my numbers in the acceptable range I had my first heart attack. They doubled the dosage of Crestor and got my numbers really low and six months later I had my second heart attack. I don’t think the numbers mean as much as the pill pushers think they do.
  5. Going to celebrate my wife’s first birthday with her not here. It was my son’s idea. Just a time to remember her. Maybe go to her favorite restaurant?
  6. I’m guessing because we didn’t lose power there won’t be much tree damage. I’ll find out in the morning.
  7. https://www.lafieldguide.com/archive/first-look-2021-mtbgb Check out that drivetrain a 1X18 they said it couldn’t be done. Take that you single speed freaks.
  8. Did you get a big storm? We had quite a storm but the lights stayed on. A lot of noise, thunder and wind noise and heavy rain.
  9. It was the first opportunity to share it in a parody to wheels thread.
  10. Working the forge shop and doing constant lifting I had hemorrhoids. Used preparation H for years. Finally I made an appointment with the anal doctor and he fixed them right in the office. If I would have known it was that easy I would have gone sooner.
  11. Sometimes when you brake less you break more.
  12. I have all the warnings turned off on my phone. I got tired of hearing Amber alerts all the time where it’s always in the big cities and a noncustodial parent doesn’t return the kids after a visit. I keep my wife’s phone charged in case one of the grandkids wants to play with it. She had lots of games downloaded on it for them. It still has the alarms on it.
  13. Probably that’s just your friends natural voice.
  14. We made axles for semis at the forge and they didn’t break. I can’t remember the grade of steel we used I just made the parts out of whatever steel came out of the furnace. It was up to other people to make sure the right steel was loaded. Sometimes they made costly mistakes but they were always caught before the parts were shipped. Actually I only remember it happening three times in 28 years and there was a lot of years without a mistake after each mistake.
  15. I would guess the stainless would work best.
  16. I had an awesome primary care doctor. She is the cousin of one of my friends that lives in Florida. She would fly down to Florida to run marathons with her cousin. When the pandemic hit I had one virtual visit with her and then she took a sabbatical and hasn’t come back. My new doctor is also very nice but she isn’t an athlete.
  17. Factory defect, they should give you a new one. I still say have a machine shop (or 46) make you a new one. So how did the bike handle when it broke?
  18. storm passed, we still have power didn’t even get the hail they called for. Just a lot of noise and wind and rain.
  19. What did you do to your old axle?
  20. My wife’s phone just went crazy I checked it and it said tornado headed this way. Other locations impacted by this tornadic thunderstorm include Stoneboro, Clark, Sandy Lake, Fredonia, Jackson Center, Mercer, West Middlesex and Maurice K Goddard State Park.
  21. Driving truck I always had my ICC exams. When I started working at the forge they encouraged us to get a primary care doctor and get an annual exam. I always did but when I got old I started picking up other doctors. I now have an Oncologist, a Dermatologist, a Cardiologist, a Nephrologist, a urologist, two eye doctors, and see other specialists as needed. Getting old isn’t for sissies. I probably average over five doctor appointments a month. I saw my Urologist this morning, going to the Dermatologist tomorrow morning to get another squamous cell carcinoma cut out. Going to try to talk him into taking the stitches out of the last one he cut out. I’m scheduled to get them out next week.
