Me: (Laughter)

Mom: (silence and then...) What are you laughing about?


p.s. My divorce was final on August 16th.
Although not recently, most certainly born-again. BTDT, ain't goin' back.

Well, I stopped at my mail box tonight. Fell over, busted my skin just above my padding on the knee, busted my hand. I was stopped. FFFFKKK.

Two words: Arranged Marriage

With a twist. Rather than your parents arranging it, it will be set up by the ADV community through an on-line search of Russian bride sites.

...kidding aside, I have a friend that did the mail-order Russian bride thing.

10 years later: She is still drop dead gorgeous, they have two healthy children, and they couldn't be happier.

So it was a brisk 30˚ this mornin in NW Colo and we had a history field trip out to the Milk Creek Battle Field. I walk the kids through what is was like for the soldiers in the barricade during the battle in 1879. But I to get back on topic, I am riding south of Craig on highway 13 calmly dodging the wildlife on the good old DR, when all of the sudden the rear end goes back and forth with a loud WHOOSH. Damn flat! I get the bike up on some rocks and set to changing the tire. I watch the bus go past, shit. I gotta hurry. I set a new record, for me at least, 22 minutes. I get done, throw the tools in the bag and passed the bus back on the county road and was waiting on the kids. Just a small hole. Good thing I threw in that rear tube last night.

Hard to imagine a hundred and 130+ plus years ago 175 mean were here battling for their lives,

Eleven Medals of Honor were awarded due to the actions on this field. In the foreground the unmarked grave of the teamsters,enlisted and non-coms lays. Only the officers were removed from the field of battle. Beautiful day in NW Colo, but the weather is starting to change!!

A friend of mine is on vacation is Sri Lanka. She hiked to the top of this mountain and saw this sign..


Unfortunately it is a "DRY" day and no beer.

I told her to wait for tomorrow and be first in line!

Here you go:

The Full moon day is important to Buddhists all around the world, who have adopted the Lunar Calendar for their religious observances. Owing to the fullness of the moon as well as its effulgence, the full moon day is treated as the most auspicious of the four lunar phases occurring once every lunar month (29.5 days) and thus marked by a holiday.

Tourists to Sri Lanka may call Poya day a Dry Day in the backdrop of non-availability of alcoholic beverages at hotels and restaurants. Wine stores, taverns and bars are closed on Poya days. Mini bar of your hotel room would be the one and only available option.

Before his death, Paul Harvey called Sri Lanka the armpit of the world; that's all I need to know about it.
