    I made it work!

    I figured out a way to transport both my new Kettweisel trike and Mrs. Grouch's Greenspeed trike inside of our Honda Element. I'm pretty happy about that. In a week or so, Mrs. Grouch will be getting her own Kettweisel that we can link with mine to make a tandem. I'm confident it will fit along side mine too. It's about a 10 or 15 minute job to get both trikes assembled and ready to ride so that's not too bad.

    Before anybody even askes, my camera is on the charger. After that happens, I'll take some photos but it might take awhile for me to figure how to transfer the photos to my computer and over to a post. I am, after all, a retro grouch.

    Assuming you have a cell phone from the 21st century, you can take a picture with your phone and email it to somebody to get it posted... (You can PM me if you want more info/help)...

    I really do appreciate the offer, but I'll spell it out for you. R-E-T-R-O G-R-O-U-C-H. It has more to do with lack of interest than lack of ability.

    Actually, I did get a 21st century telephone (this year). Mrs. Grouch and I use them to exchange semi-risque' text messages with one another while we're at work.

    Whatever you do, do not take pictures of unexposed body parts. It may be fun at the time, but all you need to do is hit the wrong "send" button and next thing you know, it will go viral.

    As long as you didn't have to tie the Mrs. to the roof to find the room you should be golden.

    That would simultaneously end all his political ambitions, while also starting his new career as a porn star!

    Brett Favre.

    Anthony Weiner.

    Vanessa Hudgens.

    Some other politician was also caught and resigned, but I forgot who he was.
