I've heard that before.
We had fun in Japan when we traveled on the trains etc. getting stared at with her being 5/10" and I 6/2". I was once asked if the Finn was a movie star. Nuther time we were thought of as basketball stars as Japan was big on the US then and the Fonz was well known. We were probably the tallest Muricans some had ever seen.

When the Finn asked how fast were we going after I passed a vehicle in the truck and I told her 90mph, she said don't do that anymore. Fastest in a land vehicle was round 115+ in the highway geared Roadrunner in the drag racing days.

more last @ 21˚

Had my Stinger up to 176, had more in her but felt a little reckless, especially at night. Prior to that was around 155 in a Talon back in the 90's.

Dog had to pee, let me know, went out and did.

Then promptly sat down in the middle of the yard in the rain with her 1000-yd stare again. Had to go fetch her. Now just sleeping peacefully again.

The Finn and I both say thanks to everyone.

Tough crowd.


Criminal. It was okay. Lots of action with enough chick flick interest to appeal to a broad audience. Interesting story with a few plot holes.

Conversation last night with acquaintances living in BC, Canada. Let's just say gringos don't know how good they have it. The vision many have of Canada as being a kinder, gentler version of Land of the Free 'murica is very much off the mark.

Good morning!

Came down with some bug yesterday, the would would start spinning if I was mobile for any real period of time.

Today much better, now I gotta play ketchup on the weekend honey-do list.
