That cloud of doom has been over your head since N.Y in December, I believe.

I can head East or West, it doesn't matter as long as it's on 2 wheels.

I feel for you, kind of. So I'll put in an hour of saddle time for you tomorrow, Dennis. Scattered showers today along with 11 hrs at work. Still will get in a couple hrs before I crash......for the night. Made ya think on that one. What can I say, " It's Indy in the month of May" .

Remember me mentioning that "Cloud of Doom"...seems to be following me everywhere.
So you're gonna have a great weed free back yard & half a weed free front yard ?

one/most would call it..."doing things half a**"...I call it ...a personal experiment to see if the seeds can be put down hours before it rains. We shall see.

Whats the big hurry...slow down and enjoy the ride!

Seeds or weed n feed? I can see you're visibly distraught. Just think, if you didn't make so many blunders you could be riding a Harley like Barb wants.

If I may make a suggestion, call me before you do ANYTHING else ever! Your children all moved away. Coincidence? I think not

Morning you....

With the coffee I get the shakes from syrup like that. I usually use fruit preserves in place and have much better luck. I get my maple fix from maple walnut ice cream or using pure maple syrup in a jerky brine.

We usually have a bottle of some locally made syrup in our cabinet...gotta support those local folk who have those stands in their front yards...



or at one of the many craft shows the wife drags me screaming and kicking to during the summer/fall riding season...



usually pretty good too....couldn't find any so used what was always available...Log Cabin...used it all my life and still standing so health wise it can't be all that bad...no...doesn't compare to the real thing but ...feeds the need.

Maybe when I retire, I'll try another experiment...fill some small bottles with Log Cabin, put a 'DC's Maple Syrup For Simpletons" label on the bottle, and see how they sell.

btw...looks like The Gregstur in the picture...miss the guy...miss his laugh...going to miss not seeing him sleeping in his chair by the fire pit when we wake up in the morning at the Yankee Rally this year.

Whats the big hurry...slow down and enjoy the ride!

OMG...thought it looked like Gregstur too.

Yeah, miss all our fallen riders. Gone, but not forgotten.
