    kinda skinny butt, and Link thought she may have been anorexic, but she did have a pair!,,I'd go there again just to get all the free garlic bread the gluten resistance movement rejects and tosses aside,:evil
    ,better me than them frikken freeloading ducks and geese down at the park!:deal and I could stand to put on some weight,,I'll ask the young lady her name if we go there again,,I'm in,,alley sweeping in yoogene is not something that can be done via google maps,,we gotta ride and explore,,I know of a lotsa alleys that connect,,but some get filled with over the fence brush and crap.
    Spfld has endless alley connections in some parts of town,,we'll have this on the list of topics for discussion at our next meeting,
    ,MonkeyWife has turned the key on us getting a banquet table arrangement so that we may have a proper robt's rules of odor type bored meeting!
    Thank you for clearing a landing spot for our little squadron Shelly, they can't say we didn't warn them, you asked, they said yes,,so,,we can push tables and re-arrange,that side of the bar is OURS! next time,,:lol3 we may require some fresh cut flowers in the area for our fairer and finer respondents.
    I liked Link's suggestion,,we all buy the old Tom's Tapper Tavern,, and open an ADV mead hall ,,frikken Viking style!!! "Glenwood,,proud to crawl home!" is the next urban boom! although,,glenwood alleys don't do much good, they can all be covered in ten minutes or less,,



    In BlueJean,,west/east alleys run a long way in some older nayborhoods,
    crossing the hills via alleyways might be a worthy challenge,,and flaming hoops of fun!
    I can think of areas where you CAN'T get there by alley,,that'd be a place to start for route planning!
    Quackers next wendysday meet,, bring maps and dancing girls to the new ADV banquet arena,,(maybe someone should warn them):lol3

    It's the Whittaker neighborhood, think of it being sort of a analogous to an amalgam of 1970's NoPo and NW Portland without all the big apartments. :rofl

    It never changes much in Whittaker. Lot's cool nooks and crannies to explore though.

    Thanks for stopping by. You caught me doing something that most people claim I never do. I sold something. It is still 48 degrees here. We actually saw that bright thing in the sky today.

    I dusted the ol' Magna off and got out for a short, spirited ride between chores this afternoon. That bright orange thing in the sky was very welcomed this afternoon!

    Put a couple of outer tie rod ends on the little blue car this afternoon. Need to do the driver's lower ball joint tomorrow. Hopefully those three very visibly toast items takes care of the clunks we've been hearing up front.

    OMB selling something :scratch Must be time to replace it with 3 somethings :lol3

    Rode the S Jetty Road and instead of pulling into the 1st parking lot where there were 4 cars I went N to the next spot where there were only 3 for less crowdedness :lol3. Saw maybe ten people on a mile of beach on a beautiful winter day. What a state we live in...

    Went north of Nashville with Schon. Have been down that road to Siletz a hundert times and today saw a small road going north (Green Mt Rd). Well, it took about 75 miles to come back out 8 miles down the pavement. Very nice, saw 65 deg on the super precise but not so accurate Austrian Thermometer. Lunch at the Slietz Biker bar was not bad.

    Was depressing to see the bowl of cold soup that is our valley.

    Hey Dan I found the price for that Type 255 Boxer Kompressor that you saw in Germany. It sold at Bonhams Auction last year for $480,000.00

    While some of you were enjoying the sad excuse we have for a sun, I came up with another mount for the LED lights
