The 3rd neighbor showed up, another 10 minutes later though, and we finally got a good heave-ho to break her free. Good deed done for the day.

that's what the girl upstairs did the first day i was here. we got her out with the pitchfork and roofing shingles she found in the garage. that pitchfork... it's my new best friend.

i bought an overnight parking pass for $20. two nights later i got a $20 parking ticket for parking on the wrong side of the street (i forgot about switching odd/even, and it appears so did a lot of other people until they gave out tickets.) i figured out a system to not get sucked into the ruts involving 200 point turns, but i'm sad that maggie probably isn't going to survive this winter unscathed.

Do the Daughters of Norway have a hall as well?

Better than nothing. I can never seem to do more than 35 or 40 minutes on a trainer or rollers. Kudos.

Did the EC team ride today. It's good for 5-20 minute intervals that are all the rage this time of year. More snow predicted tonight, tomorrow and this week, so just glad to have been outside that last two days.

Forecast now say we're not getting diddley squat!

Good.

sherwin-williams superpaint is the ****.

i should have only bought a quart instead of a gallon, unless things look different in daylight. it covered the bright green in one coat, no primer, and i'm going to end up with most of the gallon left over.

now i'm just not sure about the color i picked.

We are getting just enough to eff up the roads and mess up plans for school/work/cycling.

...in life and in painting, things always look different in the daylight.

And in my experience, if alcohol is involved, paint jobs and women look rougher in the morning.

Dinner at the Brae Loch Inn with Mrs. rjones28. It was epic.

and my wife's parents' place in St Croix Falls, WI where we went from time to time. Them was the days.:)

I had friends who tried that, and it totally rectum.

...how does he get both his hands up in there ? Or has that already been covered ?

Ramona_W 03-02-14 09:26 PM

I walked a half mile to find out there were no volunteers wrenching on bikes today and the building was locked then walked half a mile back. Then up to the Minit Mart for half and half and back. Then down to the shop where I waited for an hour to try to give a young man a free bike and, of course, he never showed up so I walked back up the hill to the apartment. Now I'm considering another trip to the Minit Mart so LoP can have some chocolate cuz I seem to have eaten a Snickers from my mom's house and the last Mountain bar. By the end of the day I will have walked ~2 miles in the rain and most of it was pointless. On the upside, there will be coffee and a happy boyfriend.

Yeah. That's it exactly. We used to listen to "Prairie Home Companion" on Saturday afternoons while working in the bike shop. I really wanted to go to one of the pancake breakfasts and I really wanted to see LoP outside the shop so when I finally got up the nerve to invite him somewhere, that's what I picked.
