You didn't ask about lightening bugs.

Roundup (multiple varieties), Amdro, tetrathiazide, Spartan (for skeeters), skeeter dunks, Image, etc., etc., etc. Plus, a bunch of other stuff that you can't buy at Home Depot to keep the skeeters away.

You must be new here.

Headset is tight again. I guess I'm have to take it as cry for help. Get out the tools and see what's what.

Doesn't that fall under the infield fly rule? Or is that old news?

Hells no. Plenty of water taps around. Even took a nice shower. The girl running the park is beautiful. I wish I were 25 again. This is the second Vermont state park Iíve been to that has a cottage at the entrance where the manager lives.

Some blue pills and an open wallet are all you need to appear to be 25 again.

No infield fly rule when there's only a runner on first before the atbat

If you're robbing the cradle, is she robbing the grave?

Define “cradle.”

That brings us to the 70s rock song of the day (almost) (it might've been recorded in 1979)

It's my favorite bike lately. I have it down to 23.5 lbs. Hoping for sub-23 with a reasonable seatpost upgrade.

Depends on how you feel about pink, I suppose.

I think the livery looked better on skinnier, more metallic tubes

A young woman used to ride with us on this Trek. She also wore pink shoes, helmet, and jerseys. Miss her.

Creep factor = half your age + 7 years, so in my case <39 y.o.

He's doing the professional chef thing too.
