The box wine was empty and there wasn't any of that on hand.
Probably about the cost of the J.Lohr, just slept longer.
Besides, I'm good enough, I'm smart enough and (dogoneit) people like me.

Turns out that the wine is also available in box but the store I bought it at did not have any at the time. Went to another store a couple of days later and there it was in box AND CHEAPER. doh

People say "always think positive" -- I instead always think the worst because by doing so I prepare myself for the worst outcome and am always right and ready or pleasantly surprised.

I tried drinking a glass of white recently and got a headache within 15 minutes. My body hates alcohol. At 58 my body seems to hate a lot of things lately. Sad.

I hear that alcohol is a rust preventative for when one rests.

Definitely a moss inhibitor for my PNW body.
@RB1-luvr - hopefully you will grow out of this affliction. Or,...maybe just a bad box/bottle? Condolences.

During a break from the glissé, the amber glides smoothly down the gullet.



Not much to chit chat about - other than I am ready for some consistently warmer (50s?) weather. Drier would be nice, but … why push it?

Gift from my son-in-law. One of his hobbies is making wooden things.

Finished a ride and since it was early afternoon (on a Sat) that I chose an ‘apple beer’ at only 5.2. Gotta get in a day’s fruit rqmt!

Goods for later as well.
cheers, pubbers.



More booze pics showing up in 65+, thought I would bypass the ageism for this post. Anchor’s Away, 50+.

Good years ahead, especially if family is close.

Thanks!

They're about an hour away by car, and I'm mostly retired, so I'll be visiting as much as they let me. Yea, baby.

Funny thing. Right now, the baby is pretty much a sack of protoplasm. They eat, sleep, poop, and cry. They can't even see you well, and don't respond that much to stimulus.

Given that, what is great about being a grandparent?

Well, I was on a bike ride when I got the text from my son-in-law that my daughter was in labor. And at the end of the ride, I started feeling like I had a cold. The day everyone went to visit, I had to beg off. It wasn't COVID, but whatever it was, I did not want to give it to the bambina or new mommy.

So we had a little Facetime meeting the next day. And let me tell you. My daughter was happier than I have ever seen her in my life. So happy she was in tears. A deep, satisfying kind of happiness.

So far, that is the best thing about being a grandparent. I'm sure that will change as the bambina gets older, but as for now, that is it ,,, and it is GREAT.

I'm just a softie for infants, babies, and toddlers. (They also bond with Grandpa if you are gentle, warm and soothing.) After that they begin to get heavy, learn the word No, and need bigger diapers. Mom often needs and appreciates more support in the early weeks, months and first couple of years.

16-20miles each way has given me a 32-40mile RT 'commute' by bike to babysit for 1/2 day for 2+years, since they relocated. Sometimes an overnight and 2 days with grandkids.

Earlier this month

In summer I take the longer route almost every trip.

That's awesome! I love babies too. And little toddlers ... they are so very intelligent and soak up information so fast, it is fun to watch.

I'd love to ride my bike over there, but it's kinda far and there aren't a lot of safe routes for a bike. But I'll have her in a trainer as soon as she is able.
