Don't forget about the car keys! ;^)

Even though Sam and I differ in our political views I get a feeling we're a lot alike in other respects, so the Medal of Honor might be appropriate...

Cherish your time with them, Sam! Before you know it they'll be asking to borrow the car.

I had forgotten that little incedent.

Yep, I can be a real PITA. Even though I might debate politics with someone I don't use it as a factor for friendship. Politics are personal issues that each individual has to be able to live with.

I look forward to the day mine are out of the house and on the move to be independent.

So true; at the same time, let's remember that being a stay at home parent is not a cake walk. Perhaps, this explains Sam's occassional crankyness and need to live on these boards for any form of adult communication.

I used to think Sam was the lucky one for how patient and polite CB is; but perhaps CB is equally lucky to have a man that will support her in her career and apparently not suffer from that manly problem of feeling inferior from it.

My hats off to you.

She is also married. But she is also not a cyclist or even a very active person at all.

You stole the words right out of my mouth.

Dag nabbit! Foiled again...I guess I'm off to the local rail trail to troll for single, pretty, physician women who would be willing to let me hang out at home with the kids. That's not to tall an order is it?

Considering our polar opposite opinions on many things I find this a supremely generous compliment. Thank you Erraticrider.

There are many hurdles to giving up ones independance and general ability to make all your own decisions to give up career and raise the kid(s). Not to mention my own career had only just come into its own and was yeilding very high pay and self esteem rewards. I had ground my way up through the workforce for over 15 years for peanuts and just over the last three years of my career had experienced a doubling of my personal income and a leap into a much more rewarding position. I sometimes question bailing out on such career sucess since I had only just begun to experience it. Perhaps it was good in a way that I had not become completely spoiled by the sudden increase in pay/position.

And you are right. This is sometimes my only form of adult conversation. Peek a boo, winnie the pooh, and elmo cannot satisfy the need for adult interaction.

I am in fact one of the luckiest men alive and I often wonder why God has smiled upon me so much by sending Christy my way.

CBhungry is truly a special delivery straight from heaven.

Thanks again for the compliment. Can we start arguing again now?

You live so far away dude or I could probably help you out. Meeting and talking to female cyclists when you are hanging out with a dad with his cute little girl in the cart is as easy as 1 2 3. And many of them are looking for a companion to ride with. You could be the available batchelor while I make them ultra comfortable striking up conversation.

Well, o.k., if you insist.

Why don't you just go f*** yourself already.

I was tired of this forum anyway. I'll see you out back in the politics and religion forum where its cold and dark and where those who can't stand polite company hang out.
