Pull up a chair, snap your fingers, "double latte" and lets hear whats on your mind. Gripes, comments, compliments, complaints, ideas? Lets get them out in the open and see if we can relate, have some fun, come to conclusions maybe, who knows.

Good Evening Folks !

"World Vegetarian Day" ... we make many tasty dishes vegetarian.

I should get a flu shot every year but have been negligent.

A shot of your finest cognac please, Bunny.

Good afternoon everyone!

Plenty still going on around here, street construction wise that is, rain or no rain. Had my annual appt with my PCP at the VA this morning. It appears all's well. Thank you, Lord. Got my flu shot while there. Funny thing is that I volunteer at the VA and when I checked Monday, I was told the flu shots wouldn't be available until close to the end of Oct. Oh well, took care of a several issues with one trip this morning. Very cool!

Have a great day everyone! Later

Good morning BG, jay, sout, Handi, and everybuddy else coming in for Hump Day. Raining and 51° for the morning bike commute. Almost ran over a racoon that was jogging down the shoulder this morning.

sout, good to hear your wife is feeling better.

A lot of gasbuddies are having their streets repaired. Interesting.

jd, nice one.

wmsb, welcome home!! I guess your oven didn't like not being used. We had a great time. My wife and I rode 12 miles. She had the best time, and said she could have kept going. She was worn out along the way, but she was still having fun. Love hearing her say that.

Have a GREAT day everybuddy!

Golfer, my avatar shows the stern in the slip. I've got a couple of pics in my album from the boat but no boat pictures per se. I guess I'm always on the boat and really don't take pictures of it.

Got back earlier today. Had a great trip and time in Scotland although we didn't win back the Ryder Cup!

Have to finally replace our 41 y/o stove. Top still works but the oven stopped working while we were away.

Splinter, Happy belated Birthday! We really need an attitude change if we want to win back the Cup. Whether I agreed or not, Phil's comments needed to be between himself and Tom. You NEVER criticize the Capitan in public. Also believe that the FedEx leader should be at the very least, a Capitan's pick.

CGRO, BIL said you went riding over the weekend. Hope y'all had a good time.

soutxed, sorry your wife isn't feeling well. Hope she feels better soon.

Handi, sorry, was hoping you were getting better by now.

BGJam, you have a picture of it on GB?

mn, hope they complete your driveway quickly.

*Leaving fresh donuts for the early regulars*

180 degrees - south:-My grandpa used to sell milk after he retired from farming. One day, one of his customers where he stopped, was a young woman in her 40's and she had ordered 50 gallons of milk.

That's a lot of milk, grandpa said; what will you be using it for?

She replied: I'm going to take a bath in it.

Grandpa asked: Do you want it pasteurized?

Se responded: No, just up to my chin.

Good Morning,

Wife feeling better, thank you, but not back to normal. Vertigo runs in the family as three sisters have it. Guess we can celebrate pain day.

Rain again last night means the contractor cannot finish working on our street. So we drive through torn asphalt and numerous holes in the ground.

Also will take a quick cup of coffee.

Good morning everybuddy! 43° for this mornings commute.

Handi, I am hoping the pain is gone before sling comes off also!

MrGG, when we were driving to WI, we also noticed the trees were not in full color yet. Luckily, we weren't driving to see the leaves.

sout, hope your wife is feeling better. My team won!!

Have a GREAT day everybuddy.

Splinter, did we miss wishing you a happy birthday on Saturday?

Good morning all!

Yesterday was a long day over to the VA in blood draw! There must've been well over 300 guys that logged in. Ugh! Glad to do it though! Got home to find my driveway is finally drivable again. They're getting close to resurfacing now that the curb is in place. Grater and roller were out well after 19:00 grading the street in (I hope) preparation for the tar!

Have a great day everyone! Later

Good Afternoon Folks

Golfer it's a 34' Nautaline Houseboat from 1969. One of the smallest houseboats in our marina. It's powered by an OMC inboard/outboard 255hp V8. We have been out overnight a few times but we use it as a day cruiser since we're only about 22 minutes from home. We've had as many as 23 persons on board for a cruise, but usually we keep it to between 2 and 12 or so.

I'll have appetizers from the Happy Hour menu, please, Bunny

Good Morning,

Nice weather yesterday, but Mrs. SouthTx had an attack of vertigo yesterday. The home therapy did not work, but only made her feel worse. So we stayed home and rested. She feels better and the doctor increased her meds for the vertigo, and decreased the antibiotic for her allergy. It's always something.

Feeling better today and I am sure the Cowboy win had something to do with it. Hope your team won.

Coffee to go.

Good Morning Folks !

"Confucius Day" ... Born in China on October 18, 551 B.C., Confucius is one of the earliest, and perhaps the the first great philosopher. He was also a teacher, a scholar, and a politician. He gave the world many teachings, and gave the world 499 famous sayings.

We drove north yesterday looking for Fall colors and were disappointed but hope that next weekend will offer more.

Coffee please, Bunny.

Good morning everybuddy. MrsCG & I had a great weekend. We rode 12 off road miles in Cable WI on Sat. When we were done, she said she could have kept going! Brought the commuter in for a tune up Thur eve, was told early next week for pickup, like today or tomorrow. Received a call Fri afternoon stating it was complete. Picked it up yesterday.

BG, we noticed that on our drive north over the weekend. Changing, but not there yet.

Handi, hope your dr appt went well.

Have a GREAT day everybuddy!

Good Morning,

Mnjrfan, I know what you mean. We live next to an apartment complex and the noise at night can be a problem. A fire there some years ago is the only burning issue.

Handi, how did the doctor appointment go?

Doesn't look good for the ryder cup team.

Everyone, hope your NFL team wins today.

Good morning all!

Woke up early due to the neighbors 'smoking' burning pit. Not sure what he's burning this time, but it had to be wet wood, which is a no-no. Debating whether I'm going to go knocking on his door and remind him (again) of the burning ordinance, or emailing the city fire inspector... Hate to be a jerk, but I like my sleep, what little I get these days.

Oh well, Vikings are playing today, so I'll get a good nap to make up the loss of sleep last night! HA!

Have a great day everyone! Later

Splinter, he said to tell you we're going to need a miracle like 99' to win back the cup (he said you'd know what he was referring to).

BGJam, what type of boat do you have?

CGRO, hope you guys enjoy the riding.

Driving in today allowed me to bring in the work laptop to get that to hoook up to the work system, and bring home all the produce I got yesterday at the Mpls Farmer's Market.

Handi, hope you ain't so sore today.

MrGG, I don't have any comic books. :(

sout, that is kind of a bummer. And no advance notice?

Sid, wonder if my brother has any of his MAD magazines...

Good morning Handi, and everybuddy else coming in for Hump Day. Rode last night with MrsCG. She rode a bit more than a lap, and I rode two. Great weather. Sprinkled a bit this am for the commute, but I don't think it will interfere with tonite's group ride. Heat wave this am, at 60°F.

BG, thank you, and thanks for all the opportunities for a Riff Raft Ride!

Splinter, I agree!
