Tonight, she was a nightmare. We went to crackel barrel and there wasn’t any kind of wait. The server went to seat us and she immediately ran back into the shop. I asked her to come, and she screamed NOOOOOO with such vocals the whole restaurant stopped talking. I picked her up at this point and brought her to the table, but now she’s screaming and crying.

I’ve never been so embarrassed and at a complete loss. I still have no idea what caused this or anything. She has never done anything remotely close to this.

The server grabbed a basket of biscuits and put it in front of her and she stopped screaming long enough to politely ask him for black berry jam.

Got home yesterday afternoon and was relaxing on the back deck with the cat. The kid two doors down started throwing a tantrum, screaming “I don’t want to go outside!” (She was already outside.) This went on for a good 5 minutes until who I think was a nanny brought her back in. It was odd because both their kids are usually well behaved. I am pretty sure it was a nanny because the adult had a European accent.

Another couple whose house looked onto mine had a kid who would often throw tantrums in the morning. I used to think about what dealing with that most mornings would be like while enjoying my morning coffee. They moved maybe a year ago.

Our kid got pissy and refractory for a few days before a developmental leap. This happened on a sort of monthly cycle when she was a baby and longer when she was a toddler.

My kids still get pissy on a monthly cycle these days. I am sure you saw what I did there.

Correction, I believe that’s a 60s song.

Pup.

I associate that song with the death of a schoolmate. I went to a tree hugger elementary school outside the city. We took frequent walks in the woods. While in 5th grade a kid in 6th grade contracted Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, almost certainly from a tick, and mono at the same time and died a day before his 13th birthday. His brother was in my grade. His other brother was a few grades under. The family and mine lived somewhat close to each other and were members of the same swim club. At his memorial service at the school one of the teachers played Turn! Turn! Turn! The school planted an apple tree in his memory. Some of his classmates mixed some of his ashes into the soil at the base of the tree. It was really sad.

When I was in second or third grade a classmate died of leukemia. A few years ago during a ride I stopped at the cemetery and tried to find her gravestone. I didn't see it. :foo:

How about on a road bike?

I can't carry a backpack on any bike. During the brief period I used a camelback I rigged it to a fanny pack.

Then, at the end he told us, never mind, we're going to do a re-run from last concert instead. Sigh.

I guess you guys just didn't get it.

I got 43 miles in I think. Latte and strawberry rhubarb crostata at the midpoint. And stood under this thing for a minute:

Pics never crossed my mind. It has to be pretty spectacular, or I have to be pretty tired. I did pass a wind farm, but so close I was practically right under it. I'll try to do better tomorrow, on a more scenic route.

All of a sudden, "BAMSSSSSSS." The monster truck was actually a tractor-trailer (minus the trailer), and it hit the air brakes.

What on earth was it doing at the Walmart grocery store gas station? It barely fit under the roof. I about had cardiac arrest. :rolleyes:



If you had been at a Buc-ees you wouldn’t have had this problem.

Nice ride with Whyfi this morning. We got stuck by a train which ate up some precious time. Temperature was nice traffic was light.

You no doubt recognize the tunes from your youth. But the rhythms are tricky to learn and we don't have a lot of time for it.

Not to mention as a teen.

Amirite?

It was. When he got sick we were given letters to take home to our parents telling of the kid's illness and reminding them to check us for ticks, which my mom did fairly regularly. He died two days later.

Wwe used to have an old baby food jar with alcohol that my mom would drop ticks in to kill them.

I know some people hate them. I prefer to carry everything on the bike, rather than the body, but when I go on a mountain bike ride I have to put on the larger Camelbak.
The lady in the picture is extraordinarily strong. Not only is she really fast on a bike, she is a big mountain skier and mountain climber. She did Mount Whitney in 13 hours, which is really fast. I was sad when she moved to another state.

I was about 1 click away from ordering an Ultegra Di2 group set this week, but now see components of the new 105 Di2 showing up on websites. Hmmm....

Nope. Years 12-14 were difficult at times but not too bad and after that, she was a delight almost all the time.

Well, the Buc-ees has a more open-air design, so it wouldn't have been like a steam engine exploded next to me in an underground bunker.

Ours was a delight before and after high school. ;) She was actually pretty good during high school, but really came into her own about half way through college.
