    Unfortunately, it's on my side of the meter, so it's my problem. I have insurance that will cover up to $7,000, so I hope it doesn't run much more than that.

    I'm more concerned with the driveway. I really would hate for them to have to tear a lot of it up to get to the pipe.

    Hey, DRC, hope all is well down there. Trust you got the pipe fixed without too much trouble.
    Nice pictures of the snow! We got about the same amount over the weekend, but it's all gone now. 5" of rain yesterday and more today.
    Tired of rain! Haven't been on a ride in three weeks now, so starting to get kinda stir crazy!
    Here's to a better year in 2021.

    Yeah, the plumber finally got out to fix it. It took about a week because he was so back logged. He told me that he can't get anyone that is willing to work, even to get on-the-job training.

    One funny thing, after talking with him for a while, I found out that we both lived in Arizona, and that we lived about 20 miles apart. I moved here in 1995, he came out in 2013, but we both lived there at the same time.

    Small world.

    On another note . . .

    I've been picking up some more gear, and getting ready to make some better content for y'all. :thumb

    I still get out and ride, but I haven't really come across anything picture worthy. When I do, I'll be posting them.

    Till next time y'all.

    Chillis, my other half has been on my arse since the weather turned cold three weeks ago. 'Well, why ain't you oudt thare now' or sumfn like that.
    Umm., no heated grips? LOL. Gonna remedy that.
    DRC, I can relate with your plumber. Most young folks don't wanna do this kinda work, hence, they can charge what they want.
    Anyway, I digress. Thanks for the snow pics. The Cougar and Elco look like they are sayin', WTF?

    Well, last August I posted a picture of this house, and called it the Nightmare House on Elm street:

    nightmare house elm street.jpg


    And today I got a different shot of it:

    Elm Street House Gone.jpg

    Yeah, kinda missing something here. :augie

    I guess the nightmare is over . . . Time for new beginnings?

    A bit of a metaphor for my life? :hmmmmm

    I hope so. I could stand something better coming my way! :nod

    Anyway, there hasn't been much to get shots of lately, but I'm still ridin'!

    Till next time y'all.

    Verandas front and back, nice bay window, great trees. A lovely property at one time.

    Well, no riding today. :vardy

    vd weather.jpg

    Too cold for me to ride unless it's an emergency.

    Good day to stay in and have pizza! :dukegirl

    Sheree had this made just for me.

    Cici's Pizza was the only place that would custom make one for her, so I'll give a shout out and big thanks to Cici's! :thumb

    That's it for now.

    Till next time y'all.

    We had a light layer of frost/sleet mix on the ground this morning with icy roads, but the Weather Chanel is calling for more bad weather. :puke1

    I'm glad that I took/was forced into an early retirement, and I don't have to go anywhere. :thumb

    What's all this complaining about the winter weather? Oh ya! You don't usually get this do you? Welcome to my world. Blew out the driveway this morning, probably going to repeat tomorrow and again Tuesday. Can't wait for April.

    I was disappointed when I woke up this morning and there was no snow or ice. Maybe tonight we'll get some. Can't take cool pics of riding in the snow when there ain't no snow:dirtdog

    Last week the temps were below freezing, today . . .

    :loco

    I took the Sporty out to run some errands, and stopped by to visit Sheree at work. She told me to get some storm damage pics of the Trane factory.

    It got squished pretty badly.

    Yeah, that's gonna hurt someone's insurance company. They probably won't pay up though. (I won't get started on insurance companies. :nono I'd probably get banned! :fpalm)

    Anyway, that's it for today. Were supposed to get rain again for a few days, so I took advantage of a good riding day. :ricky

    Till next time y'all!

    Hopefully you've gotten some seat time in this week, especially today has been beautiful.

    Unfortunately, nice weather also means it's a good time to take care of other projects, too. Little rides and errands don't usually get postworthy material, so my thread doesn't get updated as often.

    I've got some things planned for rides coming up. Hopefully I'll be getting some good stuff to post while I'm out.

    Thanks for checking in!

    Sorry for the lack of activity folks. I got hammered by some kind of stomach bug a couple of weeks ago, and haven't been able to do much.

    This pretty much sums up my life lately: :ostrich :topes :flush :vardy :knary :sick :puke2

    Yeah, you get the point!

    I did test out some of my new camera gear, and got the drone registered, so at least there's a little progress.

    That's about it for now.

    Till next time (hopefully soon).

    :wave


    And remember, never trust a fart!
