The time everybody tweaked Norm's photo and made it their avatar.
After I had mine done, I went in with my sample to make sure I was free of the little swimmers. Unfortunately, they found a couple, but they were dead. I was asked how long ago had I "taken the sample". 1/2 hour, cause that's how far away I live. Apparently that was iffy - they couldn't be sure if they were left over from before the snip, or new but dead due to dying since taking the sample.
So, I tried again. As I handed the sample container to the cute young blonde, she asked how long ago I took the sample. I replied "about 2 minutes" and looked over at the washroom off the waiting area. (It took a ton of concentration to generate that sample).
This is probably the 5th time I've sat at the keyboard intending to post, and this time, I'll not click away. I can't just not comment.
I've never met you but I guess I sort of know you. You were a big, active part of my early days here at NSMB, back when the board was more fun and filled with interesting characters. Interesting character you have always been. I recall reading the stories pertaining to each of the bikes in your signature. I recall all the surpisingly young girls you seemed to be telling us about - we'd admonish you, but I'm sure we all were green with envy.
NSMB has evolved now, it's not quite the same; it seems more a community of whiners that happen to bike, rather than a community of bikers that ramble on about whatever an occasionally disagree. You were part of the good times.
You've always had cool toys and something interesting to say about them. A little drama, but nothing jumps to mind that was over the top.
I don't know you, and yet I feel I do.
I'm sorry you're going through this; I recall the Trinity years and how that tragedy unfolded here. That was tough to watch, and this too is tough. But - we're just spectators; I can't imagine being in your shoes. I admire your strength and attitude, although I'm sure you must have periods of rage, fear, depression.
Stand tall, Rossco. I know there's nothing I (or we) can really do, but know that we're with you.
Geez, the pathways one follows. I decided to lookup a ShogunNamedMarcus's avatar, and see what that's all about.
Ok, listened to Rammstein's Keine Lust. Read their Wiki Page. (Interesting group!). That then had me watching youtube videos of the 1988 Ramstein Airshow Disaster, and from there I lost about 20 minutes watching misc airshow disasters. It's amazing anything ever gets done.
Check when the light comes on the dash for the truck's tires; a frequent eyeball check and monthly gauge check of the wife's car. Before every camping trip for the trailer.
I have an air compressor in my garage.
My cousin used to measure the tread depth across the tires and determine if they are wearing even. If the center is wearing faster then reduce pressure and visa-versa. Good idea, but too much effort for me and I've never really had a uneven wear problem. But - he's an engineer, so likes details.
