Got a great deal on an H3, so Mrs. rjones28 will inherit the M2.

Found this little guy in my yard today. Never seen a lizard like this before. I actually thought it was a baby snake at first.

Slender Salamander?

And as luck would have it, there seems to be a glut of dumb riders these days, too.

I can barely walk right now. Went to dinner, and had to have my wife bring the car around to pick me up after. I am a hurtin MF right now.

Sorry to hear that, in the future try not doing whatever you did.


In a more serious tone, hope you feel better by the time I get to Dallas, donít want to have to wheel you to dinner in a wheel chair. People might get the wrong idea.

Ran to CVS after dinner to sell a guitar, and told my wife I should pick up a cane while there. Her response was that she wasnít letting me put one foot in the grave yet.

Iíve battled this crap for 30 years. It just happens from time to time. The cause can be as innocuous as tying a shoe. Today was weed eating after mowing.

It's really the only way to do coffee. This one's a Bialetti, but made in China, I think. And it works well on the induction.hotplate.

Therapy.

Happens to me sometimes too. And usually itís completely out of the blue. Luckily it doesnít keep down for long. The pinched nerve in the neck, I used to get that all the time when I was body building, and talk about pain. I would be completly useless.

Stage 13 coming right up! A truncated version.

Was it pretty quick? Something like that would sun itself on my MIL's steps, but it was always gone in a flash.

Oh, BTW, what's the story with your layover here? Going to be here for a bit or just in and out?

Wow. I see that my local LBS bike shop has them very aggressively priced ($499). If I didn't have a perfectly fine 1 year old smart trainer, I'd be tempted.

Sounds like you want to be flat on your back. Maybe some acetaminophen.

OTC Tylenol has never done much for me. Iím not allowed to take Ibuprophrine due to some other issues. Booze it is!

big john 09-02-22 08:03 PM

Haven't decided what to do tomorrow. I checked both club pages and it seems nobody wants to ride in 107 degrees. I could drive to the beach and ride among 5 million people, then drive back with thousands of others.
Maybe the best bet is to join a group of 4 starting at 7:00 and be done by 10ish.

Watching the poor cat suffer is the worst. Our a/c isn't very good and he just looks like he's dying. He's happy in cold weather.
