Pull up a chair, snap your fingers, "double latte" and lets hear whats on your mind. Gripes, comments, compliments, complaints, ideas? Lets get them out in the open and see if we can relate, have some fun, come to conclusions maybe, who knows.

Good Morning Folks !

"National Marshmallow Toasting Day" ... ahhhhhhhhhh

Sid
You have some very good ideas.

Saturday morning breakfast of bratwurst piled high with sauerkraut, at the Minneapolis Farmers Market, is also a good idea, bring your own beer.

Coffee for now please, Bunny.

Minnesota State Fair cheese curds with super heavy onion White Castle's double jalapeño cheese burgers!

Good morning Treasurehuntxxx, Handi, and everybuddy else coming in today. Grass was too damp yesterday to mow, so will have to do that today before heading out of town. Hoping for a ride with friends on Sunday up north.

Handi, enjoy the weekend!

sout, not allowing the police to do something doesn't sound smart.

MrGG, intersting day yesterday...

wmsb, have a safe and fun trip! 11 was around normal. It is very random. WE have had 20, but we have had 4.

Have a GREAT day everybuddy!

Heading up to NJ early this morning. Will return on Tuesday.

Splinter, I know how both of you feel. As you know, our daughter and her family live in CA. We are lucky if we she her three times a year. Since our sons live in NJ, we see them on a fairly regular basis.

BGJam, I second that.

soutxed, glad you had a good time. We could use some rain too but probably won't get any until Labor Day according to the weatherman.

CGRO, was 11 riders more than usual? Glad y'all had a great time last weekend.

Handi, hope you get the chance to enjoy your weekend.

Found out police had some one in a motel room that would not allow them to serve a warrant. But all ended peacefully. Perk in jail.

Possible rain today, we really need it.

Have a good day.

Good Morning,

Went to the beach yesterday afternoon. Nice way to cool off. Trip home took awhile as there was a detour due to construction and another due to a police situation.

HS Football starts Thursday along with NCAA as the Aggies go to South Carolina on National TV.

Everyone have a good mid week day.

Sid - Yes, UW-Madison is expensive, but thankfully, there is reciprocity between Wisconsin and Minnesota so MN residents going to school in WI pay in-state tuition (plus about 10%).

CG - Sad and exciting, and always part of the plan. It's just such a big change when they come home and then when they leave. Assuming they get jobs after graduation, their visits will likely become less frequent if they are working away from the Twin Cities.

Good morning Sid, and everybuddy else coming in today. We had a fabulous extended weekend, with 6 friends. Mtn biking, pontooning, resort walking. All good. And, MrsCG let us stay until Tuesday morning, when everyone else left. Originally, we were going to leave Monday morning, due to her work load.

Splinter, sad and exciting day.

Handi, wow, that seems early.

We saw lots of eagles around Nelson Lake in Hayward WI.

Have a GREAT day everybuddy!

Good Morning Folks

What better way to relax after work than a leisurely cruise on the river? Come join us on Riff Raft Monday and/or Tuesday evening departing the dock about 6 pm. We depart slip 75 in the upper harbor of the St Paul Yacht Club for a 2 to 2.5 hour cruise. We'll meet in the up river end of the Padelford parking lot (on Harriet Island) and escort y'all to my boat. You can get my contact info from MrGG. I hope to see ya on the river!

Good Morning,

Splinter, high humidity is the norm here. Probably why so many people in South Texas are obese. Outdoor exercise is not popular.

Was at the gym (in A/C) yesterday and say several of the trainers do the ice bucket challenge. Good way to cool off.

Football went well, but long night. Ready for the real games to begin.

With Friday night FB, not many road trips planned for awhile.

Have a good Saturday.

Got the top of the boat wet as well as the bottom the other day. Boating on the river is always good but in the rain, not quite as good. We're looking to have a gasbuddy cruise next Monday and Tuesday evenings. Come for one or both. Y'all can get my contact info from MrGG.

With the state fair in session the summer is rapidly drawing to a close. We've got several road trips planned and that helps to end the summer also. Now I'm appreciative of every nice day we have!

Good morning everybuddy! Happy Friday!! Short day for me. Made most of the errands after work yesterday, baked the choc chip butterscotch chip cookies. Stopped at a Farmer's Market, but forgot cilantro, so stopping at the store for that, and then making salsa. And packing my clothes, food stuffs, wash the bikes, and wait for the mrs to get home from a job in Duluth, and then away we go to Hayward WI for a weekend of biking, laking, and other stuffs.

sout, easy days are needed!

Current temp is 74°F. Current dew point is 73°F. This results in a relative humidity of 94% and air that is difficult to breathe.

ladida - I usually order a cheeseburger and fries. Little Splinter orders the Double Double.

Handi - sorry about your cat.

Took it easy yesterday as daughter's family left Tuesday and recovering from championship celebration.

HS football starts Friday. This is a religion in Texas, and in this area where there is no college football, it is even bigger.

Everyone enjoy your day and the rain. We could use some here.

Good morning MrGG, Handi, ladi, and everybuddy else coming in today. Well, we finally got some rain. They talked heavy downpours, but when I was up and around, it was just sprinkling, so I coulda rode the bike. But, I reset the alarm, so drove. I have a few errands after work to prepare for the weekend, so driving will be more efficient. First day since June 26 that I haven't biked to the bus...

sout, great to hear the AC is fixed! CONGRATS on the win!! Thanks for the tacos and champagne.

jay, cool!

MrGG, yes, someday! When I go to the Fair, I have no intentions to eat healthy. Hopefully, I can share everything I get with one or more, but I will sample of lot of different things. Some things may be healthy, but some will not. I do NOT like Martha's cookies, so I don't need them. Taste like store bought, except warm to me.

wmsb, thank you. I haven't checked the weather in WI where we will be. Some rain expected here...

My truck has a cassette player in it...

Handi, good luck with your shoulder. My dad fell on his should biking in the Tour de Cure in June, and he is now going thru physical therapy. So sorry to hear about your kitty...

Have a GREAT day everybuddy!
