Impromptu Waschsalon morning because the clothes in which I hashed this weekend are disgusting.

  1. Whoa, that woman used so much chlorine in her load of whites it smelled like a swimming pool when she opened the washing machine.

    Our clothes were stinky after that hash – I should have washed the shoes too.
    Trail was ok- that creek FOREVER got really old – I hate that.

    Allan went tubing (and I kayaked) on the Cartacay Saturday – was supposed to rain all day, but it barely did. So – we guessed right and went a head with our plans.

    Since you aren’t on the FB – Robin & Debra redid one of Sani’s bathrooms while she was gone (with the help of Surly). I guess she was so shocked (& of course happy.)

    • And here I was gone for nearly two weeks and all my bathrooms and plumbing are still screwed… lol

      • Barb says:

        guess you haven’t endeared yourself enough to the right people. (but seriously – who else that we know does more for all of us than we ever do for her – that would be Sani)

    OH on The Facebook:
    – “So who’s that old white woman singing Aretha’s “Natural Woman”….?!”
    – “That’s Carole King…she wrote it.”
    – “Oh, well…I still think Aretha did it better!”

    It was a successful run Friday to CMP, Anniston. I was able to purchase an M1 Garand (Springfield Armory, WWII serial number, muzzle +1, throat +2). Boo yah.

    Not too much else to report.
    Braves looked awful against Colorado, especially the relief pitching.

      that’s Carole King – she wrote it. – too funny………. (and, I did know that little bit of trivia)

      Anniston isn’t a bad drive – there’s some mountain biking we need to go explore over there.

    Oh Barb, I think you might have just shown your age- Carole King’s “Tapestry” album was (and may still be) one of the top selling albums of all time. It’s on there.

    It was trail clearing day #2 at Bear Creek Saturday. I was on a buggy with the huntsman, who is pretty wild with a short attention span when driving. I have the poison ivy to prove it. Debbie managed to get one of the farms big tractors stuck and we had to rescue her. It wasn’t her fault (exactly) as the bush hog would raise high enough not to drag in some situations. And she was down in some bottomland and it was really soft.

    If I can’t figure out the adjustment of the brakes on my CX bike, I will be paying a call to see Allan. The front brake is dragging and I can’t get it adjusted. I thought I had it last night and it squealed so badly I disconnected it and rode with just the rear. Not safe.


    • Barb says:

      let us know – we are home most evenings –
      BUT— big news, starting THIS FRIDAY Allan is going back to the firehouse.
      He hasn’t really announced it totally, because it is the City of Atlanta, they could change things again, but we think he is good to go to be out of inspections! So, we’d have to work around the 24 hours on, 48 hours off schedule.

      • Steve says:

        Woo Hoo!! I know he was over being an inspector.

        I just found the brake on the Park Tool website and it gave me another idea on the adjustment. They were not covered when I went through Schwinn Factory Training in 1976!!

    My favorite memory along these lines is from Moody Blues show at Chastain probably 20 years ago. Z93 started playing a pre-concert warm up, and we’d been in the hammock all afternoon drinking wine. Our house was a mile from Chastain, so we got the bright idea to go scalp tickets. One minute we’re in the backyard hearing Moody Blues on the radio, the next we’re seeing them live.

    In any case, we were in to New Age music back then, and David Lanz had a version of Nights in White Satin. When the Moody Blues started playing that song, my wife said “Oh, that’s that David Lanz song” (obviously aware it was a cover). An incensed woman in the row in front of us, dressed in white satin no less, turned around and snarled at us “Yes, but JUSTIN WROTE IT.” That moment will always tickle me to no end.

      Thanks a great story –

      We will be at Chastain on Sunday night for Rick Springfield, Loverboy, Greg Kihn Band & Tommy Tutone. Should be a hoot. Tickets were more than I thought they would be, even going to the box office to buy them.
      I think Ticketmaster/Live Nation has figured out a way to add all the extra charges in.

      • They have probably invented a “in-person purchase convenience charge”

      • ITP Lurker says:

        I seriously considered going to that show for a minute, but after some contemplation realized Greg Kihn and Tommy Tutone are totally one-hit wonders, and Greg Kihn doesn’t always play “The Breakup Song” every show. I’ve heard enough Loverboy and Rick Springfield to last me a lifetime. For me it wasn’t a money thing, but more of a “I’m very likely going to want my time back” thing had I decided to go. 😉

        Hope you have fun! It’ll definitely be a hoot.
