I like how a knobby works better in the dirt than on tarmac!

Well, the Shinko 244 I have on there now has about 1200 miles on it now and is pretty worn, but for $44 I'd say it's pretty well worth it.

Hey Albie, putting a splint on your right wrist really helps tire wear

Wink Naughty Nurse

Hi fellers.

My wife had the 24 hr stomach flu Thursday night through last night.

I had to play nurse and be all attentive and stuff.

Luckily she is feeling better today, I hope I don't catch that nasty stuff.

I passed my written test for my M endorsement, and will do the riding test Thursday. So I can expand my "comfort zone" a bit now that I'm legal.
It looks promising that my wife will be taking the MSF BRC in June.
She had voiced interest last fall, but then was silent all winter, so I though she had changed her mind about riding....apparently not.

There is a price to pay to sit n' drink beer, while visually oogling young females in teeny-tiny skirts and tight tops.

Today I took the kids on a home-school tour of the National Weather Center in NLR. It was pretty mundane but I bet that place is super exciting during a rain storm. These guys have direct lines to the Governor, FEMA, DC, State Troopers, TV Stations, etc... Kind a cool, when you stop and think about it.





This device is attached to a weather balloon and launched twice a day.


Last year they had to use their storm shelter, when a tornado went through NLR and Sherwood.

I headed that way to try it out. I even called one of your gay friends to ask about the food. Figuring he would be paying attention to the beer and food while others were distracted by the wait staff.

But looked busy so figured I would wait for the new in NWA affect to wear off. Ended up eating soy, rice and some raw and some cooked fish product near the mall.

Maybe I can check the food at the TK out on a Monday. And you know I don't worry about what a beer cost. Now what they charge for cranberry and other "fruity" drinks would be a different story.

Nope, I don't need no auto club. Well remembering the underneath side of my truck when I change oil last time maybe I should look into it.
