Not sure how you do that. I won't even let the OD touch my eye to do a pressure test.

People without pools.

You'd have one if you lived here.

I won't say it's essential, but if you want to spend time outside in the summer down here it sure is nice!

When I had Shingles in my eye the doc placed a lens on the eye to check something. I couldn't tolerate it. I tried but couldn't overcome the urge to close my eye or just fight it off. I don't know if he saw what he was trying to see.

Had better luck on subsequent trips. Persistence.

You know who else? People who live in places that don't freeze.

That said, I only have a pool because it was there when we bought the house. I wouldn't build a new pool for myself...and I'm a pool contractor. :lol:

It's not supposed to freeze like it did last year in this area. Oh, and the power grid is not supposed to go down like it did.

Many thanks to Abbott and his crony a-holes.

It rained a little here last night and sprinkled a bit this morning. That might be it for the season.
My regular group ride friends are out of town so I have to decide what to do. Might do a club ride, but which one? So bad with decisions.

Do it Han

The doc uses an eye speculum. I couldnít blink even if I wanted.

When I have to do a lot of walking like these guys require I leave all that weight home and travel with a much lighter 200-500 f/5.6.

Went solo Wednesday and again today. I miss the old days of 100 club rides per year so maybe I'll do one if it doesn't rain. Pretty cloudy today.

At least it's not on the roof, like we have here. $15k and the NE lawn still has ruts from the big ol' crane.

When will it end???

Just got a new cleaner valve in the mail the day before yesterday. Might put it in monday. No proper freeze here, the old one sprang a couple of leaks last year, at which time I painted it with epoxy paint. That only got us another year before a slow drip developed a couple weeks ago, so time for a brand spankin' new one.

Kenny Pickett's hands are too small to be an NFL QB. Discuss.

I don't know who that is, but you just hand shamed them.

My hand is a half-inch bigger than his, without any stretching. And I'm not quite 5'11". His hands be small. Whether that affects his play is a different thing.

Too much excitement this morning. Mrs GJ had the front screen door propped open, but with the front door shut, when a gust of wind blew the front door open. I was in the back of the house, still in my PJs, and I came out to hear her calling Rango and offering him a biscuit. Turns out he'd taken advantage of the open door and was now out on the street side!!! At the busiest time of day along our fairly busy street!!! :eek:

BUT it turns out he just sauntered two houses down the street to the house of his little buddy Pepper, his Chihuahua pal, and was trying to figure out how to get in. He came right over to me when I called, and I held him till Mrs. GJ could go get his leash and harness, because you can't drag a Greyhound by a regular collar - unless you want to end up with a collar in your hand and a Greyhound with a nekkid neck.

Whew!!! All's well that ends.

Owls are a favorite of mine. I love to hear them while camping. Back in September there was one in a tree directly above my tent in Cuddebackville, NY. Noisy bugger he was.

That is super cool. Nicely done, Bill!

Indeed, that is a Superb Owl.

I guess All Y'All have never had a rust ring on your eyeball. They use the most badass little grinder to deal with it. Self-powered by giving it a little spin.

The large pallet is at least 2 feet taller than I am. And, I'm 6 foot.

What is the correct hand size?
