No kidding! We've had some incredible riding weather lately! Just a few spots of rain, and lots of sun!

Wow,

Too hot in New York and we have had three weeks of thunder showers in Texas. That is when you get 10 miles from the house and you run into a gully washer!

My favorite part of everyday is checking the "todays birthday" part of the forum. It reminds me of my older relatives obsession with the obituaries in the local newspaper. But as a great man once said: " Nostalgia ain't what it used to be.."
It's at this point, as in all great endevors, when no good deed goes unpunished, as the euphoria dies down, that I finally understand why the dinosaurs died out.

Just before they got old and cranky.....





They lost their sense of humor.

Like they said, I was being a d**k. If someone gets annoyed when they get called out for hijacking a thread, I can live with that.

I dunno, Randy.

I read some of the site but no one there seems to know what happened, either, so they made a new site with cool rules of their own so they wouldn't be bogus, too but -- British English? WTH?

I tried to sign up but received no confirmation e-mail. Maybe it's Manuel Starte' and the signup mod is asleep ... too many people used/abused the Guest posting privilege so it's not possible to post as a guest at this time.

Those that anger you control you. Let them steep in their own **** and move on. All this wasted energy is boring me.

Goodnight Mrs. Calabash.
