I'd move but there is one saving grace in Illinois, they don't tax pensions. There is rumor that they might start but as of now I'm good. Since my house has been in mine subsidence my taxes got cut in half. They start fixing the house on Tuesday. I hope the tax man takes a while to figure out it's fixed!
Once it's fixed I'll redo the guest room so Crusty has a place to stay!

Hard to get him indoors. He likes that tent.

An Early Christmas


My daughter and son-in-law visited for roughly 36 hours starting Wednesday evening. Rocky had a work related thing he had to attend in Tennessee and he and Megan decided to expand it into a mini vacation. They drove down from Maine, did the work gig, then went and did touristy things like visit Graceland and Beale Street. They came by here on their way back to Maine, and we had an eventful visit.

It started with Christmas Dinner on Wednesday evening. David and Jack came by and we had 2Ē thick pork chops, stuffing, Davidís version of my momís green beans, tomato and bacon side dish, biscuits, etc. for the meal with Schnecken (sp?); a pastry that I canít properly describe, but it was very tasty for desert. We ate well and had good conversation with a variety of Christmas music in the background (the Time-Life Treasury, The Glen Miller Band, Pentatonix, Mannheim Steamroller, and more).

Thursday morning, David came by and picked up myself and the kids and we gave them the Grand Tour. We first went to Jungle Jimís; which has to be one of the most unique supermarkets Iíve ever been in. it took us over three hours to go through the place, and the kids were quite impressed. Thereís no way to describe the place and do it justice, but youíll never find another place like it. Megan and Rocky had a lot of fun, I think; even though Megan found the giant talking Campbellís soup can on a swing a bit disconcerting. They have one of the largest assortments of Hot Sauces around, and we spent a good bit of time checking out the various types and brands. I bought a boatle of Curleyís (from the 3 Stooges) sauce for one friend, and a bottle of Donald Trumpís ďMake America Hot AgainĒ sauce. I have no idea if the sauce is worth a damn, but I loved the label. Now, I can think of a bunch of people I should send a bottle to. I think itís a perfect gift. Conservatives will love it and so will Liberals. Theyíll love it for very different reasons, but everybody would enjoy getting it.

After we left Jungle Jimís, we took the kids to Skyline Chili, so they could try Cincinnati Style Chili. For the record, Cincinnati style chili is nothing at all like Texas Style Chili. To compare the two would be like comparing Italian Spaghetti Sauce to Mexican Salsa. Anyhow, the kids loved it. After lunch, we went by the Mushroom House. Thereís no way to describe it. It was designed by an Architect who was probably under the influence of psychedelic drugs; or maybe he needed some sort of psychotropic medication. Anyhow, when we were sitting there and looking at it, we wouldnít have been surprised if a hobbit or an elf walked out the front door. David then took us through Eaton Park which is up on a hill overlooking the Ohio River and Down Town Cincinnati.

We did more touristy things like driving over the Roebling Bridge which crosses over the River into Kentucky, we went by the Spaceship house which looks like a Flying Saucer from a B grade 1950s movie, and up to another park overlooking the River and Cincinnati from the other side. Megan and Rocky wanted to see Davidís shop (Rockiní Rooster Comics and Games), so we went there, even though it was Davidís day off; then David brought us back to my house and went home. The kids and I went to Wootís BBQ and completely stuffed ourselves, then we came back to the house and watched Guardians of the Galaxy 2.

We were all up early yesterday, and the kids left for home at 6:00 AM. They sent me a text last night saying they were home so I wouldnít worry. That leaves me sitting here feeling pretty warm and happy. My Christmas came a couple of weeks early, but it sure was a good one!

And, as one little motorcycle related side; Rocky rides a scooter around Portland, and he wants to move up to a motorcycle. Heís going to take the course this spring (Megan also wants to take the course again). When he saw the í78 in the garage, he fell in love. I guess a Sportster will be in his future. Cool.

Nothing like having family over to make a house feel like home!

Torn Between Two Desires


This time of year, I have too much time to think. And I have a bit to think about, right now. Iím hoping to ride to the Arctic Ocean next June. I want to ride the Dempster Highway to Inuvik, then the new highway to Tuktoyaktuk. After that, jog over to Alaska, then head for home. Itíll be another ride of a lifetime.

Iím also a Flat Track fan. Now that Iím living in Ohio, there are a lot of races that are within a dayís ride. Iíd like to see a bunch of them. Iíd love to see the Daytona TT, the Atlanta Short Track, the Red Mile, both Springfield miles, the Peoria TT, the Lima 1/2 Mile and maybe ride up to Weedsport, NY for the Short Track. Hell, Iím only an hour and a half away from the Red Mile. I wouldnít even have to camp out; I could be home that same night and sleep in my own bed. Hitting a bunch of races would be a fun way to spend the summer.

The trouble is, I canít do both. I canít be in two places at once; If Iím in the Northwest Territory, I for sure wonít be at the Red Mile or Lima. And if I do go North, when I get back, Iíll be too broke to hit any races for a while. Money also has a major effect on my plans. Going to Tuk and Alaska will be expensive. Iíll only be on the road for about a month, but itíll put a serious bite on my credit card and itíll deplete my savings. And Iím having a hell of a time trying to pay down what I owe. I was hoping to have the card paid down to a zero balance, or at least a low one by the time summer rolls around. Now, however, it doesnít look like thatís going to happen. Every time my balance drops a bit, I have to use the card to buy something. I had to send my Darien Jacket back to Aerostich for repairs last week and today, I had to buy a snow shovel, ice melt pellets and a trash can (some a**hole stole my trash can last week). Iím not in over my head, but Iím not bringing the balance down, either. It might be wiser to wait one more year and get the card paid off before heading North. Then again; Iíve never been known for doing the wisest things.

So, for now Iím just going to keep as low a profile as I can. Iím going to keep throwing as much as I can afford at the Plastic and see how things look this Spring. Iíd love to see the new faster TT track at Daytona, and Iíd also love to see the Atlanta Short Track, but I really want to see the Arctic Ocean in front of me (and maybe pull my boots and socks off and stand in the water at the shore). Iíll make no decisions until I have a better idea about which way makes the most sense to me.

In the meantime, itís less than two weeks until Christmas. Wow; time sure flies.

Those friggin' bastards!

Just thinking out loud here...

Some tactics I've seen over the years to thwart theft of an item have included painting the item an eye-catching color and putting some distinctive identifying markings on the item.

This kind of screams a pink paint job with cherub decals to me.

As I said, just thinking out loud...

The new can has orange fluorescent paint markings all over it. It was a toss up between orange or pink; either would do, I think.

And absolutely NO cherubs.

If your dryer ever fails let me know, I have another one I need to get rid of, and it's PINK!
