I didn't shave today, or yesterday.

Will I shave tomorrow? TBD.

Sad when I look at this pic and think how I never see any of these people anymore. I'm second from right, the guy third from right rode mountain bikes with me for a while. The guy third from left still races motorcycles and I think he is 70 now. I speak with him on the phone on rare occasions and chat with his wife on FB, (that's her next to him). They live up north.

I feel the need to pull a muddy pic from the vault.

The end of a fun day exploring the neighborhood.

The near misses I deal with are intentional. You decide.

Me and you both.

Saw this on a walk 2 Sundays ago. I'm thinking 71 or 72. Any old timers care to weigh in?

Here is the photo. The students were studying aeronautics, hence the shirts. No way to really narrow down the area a lot. I did find my old map from that part of the trip. We crossed the Illinois at Henry and rode through Wenona, Cornell, Odell, Cullom and Ashkum. I do remember that I went off route a bit to Streator and got a motel that night, so it must have been taken west of probably Ancona.

If pictured lots are in line with yours, the mowing facepalm is even worse than I thought.

Small yard then. One a person should easily be able to do in its entirety without interruption.

ok. I didn't understand what you were getting at.

This is in a different development with small lots. we looked at houses yesterday in anticipation of our eventual downsizing and saw some with lots that would take 10 minutes to cut at a maximum. Way too close together. #Decisions

Some fun facts here on a fun fruit.

MoAlpha did you ever display a pineapple upon the completion of a voyage on the high seas? (Bonus: they prevent scurvy :bday:)
