Over the weekend I rode one hundred twenty miles through the Willamette Valley on a fixed gear bicycle with a basket on the front and two canvas supply bags at the aft. Not only did I do it in less than a forty eight hour period, I did it all all while wearing a tweed suit compete with knit tie and felt trilby. Suck on that, you old yuppies with your alloy racing bikes and your abominable, skintight cycling leotards.
I'm impressed.
Sounds like a wonderful weekend.
The most improper job of any man, even saints, is bossing other men. Not one in a million is fit for it, and least of all those who seek the opportunity.

Wherever we go in the world we find other men speaking the same language...dreaming the same dreams. And one of the big four - brownie, or brookie, cutthroat or rainbow - is the cause of it all.

In my early months here at CPS someone, I believe it was Skip but may be wrong, started a thread about a certain new arrival that posted a great amount in a short amount of time. I'm afraid, despite having stuck around a few years now, his posting is not at the same rate.

I got a call from my wife this afternoon. We usually communicate by text during the day due to work constraints. So when I saw her name on my caller ID I suspected something had gone awry. Her dad is in the hospital with multiple blood clots in his lungs. He is a heavy cigarette smoker and a drunk. He has almost lost his left leg twice due to DVT. He is at the VA hospital an hour and a half away. So, tomorrow I will be taking my wife, and her dads wife, down to see him.


On a related note, I am grateful that I work for a very supportive organization. I am also thankful that my new co-worker is fully capable of handling my appointments that I had scheduled for tomorrow.

Ouch. I'm driving my dad's old grand am. When dad parts with a car it doesn't have much life... it's currently at 250k miles, I add transmission fluid regularly.
Ouch.

Meaning an actual part of your body or do you have a selection of body parts that you've collected (perhaps in a trunk in the attic or on shelves in the basement) and one of them is prosthetic?
