I was warned not to.

I had professionally-made berry crumble with my coffee this morning.

No response from the guy with the Kaiser, but the ad is still up. Wonder if he posted his car for sale on Sunday, then left town for Turkey day on Monday...

FYI, lawn mowing is not a winter activity up North.

You could mulch that snow in, massive lawn dividends come spring :)

Yeah, working at the bike shop benefiting the homeless family shelter, we worked on freewheels primarily. The freewheel tool would stay in the bench vise for days sometimes. Thinking back, we should've just gotten a second vise so we would've had one for freewheel tool and the other for the axle vise. Then we'd rarely have to remove one of them for some other vise activities.

No woodgrain. VV may not approve.

if they can't forgive a rare sharp word from an old friend, it makes you wonder. By now they should know that your good outweighs the bad.

Surely you're not serious about buying that.

Why not?

Leave removal activity on much of the lawn consists of pulling a leaf sucker contraption behind the mower. But there are some areas (banks) that are too steep for that. There was longer grass in these areas, so I took the push mower out to even it out.

Had a phone call with my older brother tonight. He had his Stent removed today after prostate surgery almost 6 weeks ago. That was a relief and his surgeon assured him his PSA will be zero. We talked and laughed and wondered out loud how fast the years go by.

I had my consultation for my diagnostic test on my disc today. I am scheduling it as soon as I can. More about that later.

Where was the last place you got pizza from in Cobb County?

I saw a number of houses with Christmas lights alive while driving home from band rehearsal.

Surely LAJ has similarly dialed up the wattage on his lawn.

Could save me 10 watts on a 7% grade @10 mph until something broke. Pass.

I think that a 12lb bike would give me a good +50 placebo watts.

No lawn mowing in winter for obvious reasons.

They're ready to go. I took last week off work to get it done.
