Mrs. LAJ had a port installed for her chemo. One learns a lot through that process.

Thanks guys!

She's been cancer free for a few years. So far, so good. I didn't really mention it at the time, because it was just a strange and eye opening time.

Mrs. Seeds returned, this morning, from a two week trip. And i am alive again. Let the projects begin.

Well that's much better.

PC: from the sandwich shop's Facebook.

I actually rarely eat them. The last time I can remember ordering one was in 2017, but I know I have had a couple of slices of them here and there, like when we have had bowling night after staff meetings.

Much different story when I was younger.

Whenever I feel like I want to sell something a good test for me is to clean it really well. I'll know whether or not I really want to get rid of it after it's clean.

Kind of a hard one with that old thing, it's a lovely and pretty bike but at the end of the day it's just too big for me. Plus I think I've ridden it maybe 6 times in the last year.

I'm keeping the really hard to find drivetrain parts and rack though ;).

I'll have another bike like it in the future but for now a full suspension MTB is calling...

I just saw the listing. Was it a big deal surgically moving the brake bridge?

By far. When Velo Vol speaks of infusion room stories, I get it.

Since moving to Central New York, our intake slowed dramatically. Just when we'd go back to Philly metro area. But this little shop, that opened a year or two ago makes a really good cheesesteak. Like they would fit right in round Philly, so we have their steak sandwich a couple of times a month.

They also make other delicious sandwiches. :)

Whatever happened to that silly bear, anyway?

Self-imposed head clearing sabbatical, I imagine. It's an annual to semi-annual occurrence.

Yeah, you dropped a few hints earlier. Glad this isn't new news!

seedsbelize2 03-24-22 11:04 AM

Isn't news new by definition?

seedsbelize2 03-24-22 11:05 AM

There must be another word for news that is old. The Penman would know. And, quite possibly, Mrs. rjones28

When I rode across the country BITD we spent two nights in Bowling Green, OH. Came across a place that advertised cheesesteak. Turns out the guy had moved out there from Philly and opened a shop. Got one. It was pretty darn good. Same thing had happened when I was in law school in Pittsburgh. Philly guy moved it there and opened a sandwich shop during my third year. Good steaks. Became my go-to spot, especially after a night at my local bar, which was only a block away. The rest off the steaks in Pittsburgh were not like back home.

One odd thing in Pittsburgh was that if you ordered a hoagie, many places would automatically bake/toast it in the pizza oven for a while. We Philly folks call that a "grinder", and you have to ask for it specifically. I went out there to look for housing before school started and ordered an Italian hoagie at a place that was not busy. I kept wondering what was taking them so damn long to make a hoagie. (I had worked in a cheesesteak/hoagie/beer place the summer before my final year of college.) When they finally called me up to the counter I realized they had made me a grinder.

I interact with him occasionally on Twitter still.

This guy is not from Philly, but he takes the staff on a pilgrimage (his word for it) to Philadelphia every year on a sandwich shop tour.

Also, I rolled my eyes at the name of the joint at first -- Gino's Cheese Steak and Onion. But one of the owners is named Gino.
