    Cuddling on the couch with the boy watching "Zookeeper". Hope he feels well enough for school tomorrow, but enjoying our day alone.

    I know how you feel. As a 6'2" person, I really shouldn't need to occasionally shop for small and even extra-small shirts.
    I'm planning to go shopping for a couple of winter shirts today, which I haven't done in a while, so this should be interesting. When my mom gives me clothes for Christmas they're always at least 2XL, so you can imagine how that fits. I always just accept them graciously and then immediately give them to Goodwill.

    Good news and bad news.

    The good news is that in addition to my modern IR-3, I can will you an antique Shakespeare level wind with a centrifugal anti-backlash. I put a modern handle on it as well as rebuild the anti-backlash a few years ago, but I don't use it any more. It was my wife's grandfathers. So it's probably 1950s vintage.

    The bad news is that, once again, I survived. But I have to go to the dentist next week. Anything could happen.

    Great News here. Tues am we were called at 4am by the rehab center where my Father In Law was, and they said they tried to wake him a 3:30 am and he was unresponsive. They took him to a stroke center down here but could find no evidence of a stroke. Then it was thought he had tried suicide by palming pain pills (Oxycodon) until he thought he had enough to do himself. Now they have found that, nope, toxicological tests show that he had no more opiates in his systems than expected in a person taking the amount they had given him all along. Still, when we left him last night, he was still unresponsive.

    Today he woke up, they have removed the breathing tube and he was in as good of a spirit as you could expect from a person who had just recently had a breathing tube pulled out.

    They still do not know what caused it, but he was a quite dehydrated and may have a bladder infection. Collaboration of the two, along with diabetes may have created a perfect storm.

    A good day it is...

    Facebook is kind enough to suggest friends for me, based on people who know other people I'm already friends with. But there's one girl who is continually suggested as a friend, and when I check our mutual friends, it's about 25 people I went to high school with (which, given the size of our school was nearly the entire senior class). They all know this girl, and for the life of me I have no idea who she is. Have I forgotten a year of my life? (Because I could totally sell that story)

    Was thinking that I might park the old Raleigh at the new shop with a blown up picture... it is like a little peek into the past and reminds me of my own childhood when our bicycles became our steeds when we played cowboys and Indians (I was always an Indian) and am sure that bike saw some playing cards in the spokes when it needed to be a motorcycle.

    Sometimes a bike is just a bike and then sometimes, they can be time machines.

    Making sure the plants are not going to die.

    Wife is away for a week and I'm trying not to kill anything before she gets back. Kids and pets I can keep alive. Plants are another thing...

    Are they old enough to have lived through the Great Depression? If not, are they products of the Depression? It seems to me that those who have experienced times of great need know the value of things that others might discard as valueless. Going from a thrifty society to a disposable society has to be a huge paradigm shift.

    Working from home today and sort of celebrating....got all the inspection signoffs on the new Casa de MV. Also got the appraisal back on the old casa de MV, and it is high enough that the sale is a go!
    Currently have some repair/painting type folks attacking the buyers punch list....only thing left to do now is get the CO on Monday and move. Actually, will start moving tomorrow as the CO is merely a formality at this point. They just need time to write it up, get it signed and stamped.
    MV is gonna go ITP (atlantan for Inside the Perimeter).

    Surprisingly to some, this has been the most important tool in my arsenal recently.

    back from visiting my parents. we returned with a nice chair, gate-leg table and a car trailer. I enjoyed the bike ride there more than the ride home. The tailwind v headwind may have had a lot to do with that. It took me an hour longer to bike home than it did to get there.

    Yes.

    After using the expensive Veritas log scribes and finding that they just don't fit into tight spots, I started using the compass and developing my "eyeball" technique. Now I can't be without one. It just seems funny with all the expensive woodworking equipment and tools at my disposal, a $2 compass is vital.

    About to invest some time for myself, been running around like crazy the whole day, Costco, Smart and final, grocery store, and back home. So now I'm packing my gym bag heading over 24 fitness, investing one-hour on the treadmill and on the stair machine...

    My goal is if I lose 12 pounds by December I'm buying myself a new mountain bike ( Santa Cruz )
    One night in a club called ..The Shaking Hand' There was a ninety-two decibel rocking band The music was good and the music was loud And the singer turned and he said to the crowd - "Let there be rock".

    I made fresh bread for the hamburgers for supper tonight. I also having up some homemade guacamole with store bought blue tortilla chips. Starting to feel very sleepy and I'm looking forward to work tomorrow morning, then a bike ride. Maybe rake some leaves. Do some laundry. Pick up groceries. Ok, all this thinking about tomorrow stuff is tiring.
