We're taking our boss to lunch today at a Thai place. Not a lot of choices for keto people (two of us).
Thai is good...also BBQ spots are good for those on a diet

The Brooks B-17 can be had for about $80-90, and it is real leather, not that vulcanite/canvas stuff.

I will consider all recommendations before throwing cash at a saddle. In other news my son's robotics team won two ribbons at the Brazos Valley Fair today. Second overall in his age bracket and highest score for any of the rounds. Not that you care...

I didn’t know your son was a robot. That’s cool.

Hello FredS
Regardless, that's very cool.

I'm thinking about buying a Mega Millions ticket. If I won, I believe with 1.6 billion I could retire. I think with that, my 401k, and some careful management I could manage. I will be eligible soon for Social Security early retirement and I could put in for that if necessary just to make ends meet.

My wife and her kids physically attacked me last night. They tried to gain control of the TV remote to turn on the basketball game while I was watching a documentary on Rush.

I very easily overpowered the 3 attackers and they all submitted. The wife was pinned to the wall while the 2 kiddos were immobilized beneath me.

A family that fights together stays together and learns not to mess with the remote.
