Yes, just not entirely by choice. She was kicked out of her old place, I was being a nice guy, ended up paying for nearly everything.

Did a little side by side comparision of 11 year old son of jsharr and 11 year old jsharr last night. It was very cool to do this with my son and to watch his face as he processed how much alike we look. I loved that when he was done he just looked at me at smiled.

You need a new gig, the stress isn't good for you and if you are not careful your hair will start falling out.

...

Kids have been dispatched to school and I have coffee, my birds are telling me how good looking I am, and will go and spend some time at the (pet) shop this morning taming the baby birds.

We cooked breakfast for employees that had service awards. Bacon, sausage, eggs, biscuits and gravy, oatmeal, waffles, fruits, juices and coffee.

Been a while since I've ridden with the trailer. With a headwind it was like riding with a grown man sitting on the rear rack. And dragging his feet.

My trailer is so draggy. I need to figure this out, as Saturday may be my first ride with two kids in it... my son and his little buddy.
