I’d be a lot more productive if I could stop falling asleep watching TV. Perhaps I should be doing more active things other than watching TV, but that’s what I felt like doing last night.

I was still awake as I ate the mushroom Bourguignon meal I made after doing an hour of riding on my trainer. The meal was good, but with a couple lessens learned, like thickening the sauce better and having fettuccine on hand as the recipe wants, will make it even better next time.

Not sure what’s on tap for this weekend, though a good bit of house cleaning/organization would be beneficial. And if Pissticide ever posts his start I’ll also do Black Sheep on Sunday.

  1. Start has been posted, up GA400. Guess I’ll gas up the M6 before Sunday; I should probably check the air pressure in its tires too. 😏

  2. Speaking of driving, do any of you have a GA Peach Pass? Do you think it’s worth having?

    • Barb says:

      Peach pass- yes & yes.
      It doesn’t cost you anything, except to have a Credit card on file, and $20 approx for a balance. We use it going up 85 occasionally, and a couple times on the 75 express lanes. Plus, it can be a sun pass in Florida too, so you can breeze they any tolls in FL.

      We have left Cedar Key, on the way to Ocala to the Santos trails.

      • Thanks. I think it may also work in NC? Yes, I just saw that it does.

        Enjoy the remainder of your trip.

        • Steve says:

          Sun Pass uses a credit system, while Peach Pass uses a debit- so if you let your account get too low on Peach Pass, they send the toll and a FINE! Get a Sun Pass. I almost did last week but I don’t have enough occasion to use it.

          • Barb says:

            I’ve nwver gotten a fine??? My credit card is on file, when it goes below $10 they charge you another $20. Or something like that.

    • ITP Lurker says:

      I have PeachPasses in my cars that I rarely use. It’s one of those things I consider to be like a chainsaw. I don’t use my chainsaw very often, but when I need it, nothing else will do the trick. You just never know when you’re going to be coming back from out of town and want to make use of a paid lane to avoid sitting on the freeway for interminable periods of time. It’s good to keep one’s options open in life.

    Went on a clam farm boat tour & saw oyster farming. Pretty cool the way that all works.
    We have clams & oysters toast tonight!

    Had horrible service at dinner last night, actually had to talk to the manager. They discounted our check by 40%.

    • Clam farm and you saw oyster farming? Sounds like a classic case of “bait and switch” to me. HEEEEEY Oooooooh! I’m here all the weekend! Well, actually no, I won’t be here on the weekend at all.

      Good job by the management at least.

    A fairly quiet night. Debbie is back to feeling puny. A ride and leftover chicken parm for dinner. We’ll celebrate post VD with dinner tonight.

    Heading to Stone Mountain for a little Games work while Debbie goes hunting in Alabama. I think rain all day Sunday…


  5. All week I’ve been listening to a Canadian band called “Pkew Pkew Pkew” and digging their fast-pace punkish sound. If they ever come to Atlanta I would definitely attend their show. Hell, they play Germany in April/May and I wish I could use that as an excuse to travel.

    • Barb says:

      Why not use it as an excuse to travel?

      • Probably not in the budget this year, with all of the expected ITP Estate repairs and unexpected medical bills.

        • Bonnie says:

          Dude, you only live once, and we’re all only getting older every year and don’t know what the future holds… I bet you can make it happen if you really want to. Remember, you can’t take it with you. (I know, I’m not one to talk, but just sayin’… 🙂).

          • ITP Lurker says:

            Tell it, Bonnie! 🙂

          • I am the only person who provides for my financial future. If I die before I spend my savings I will hopefully bring a little joy into a few of my friends’ lives.

          • ITP Lurker says:

            The point everyone is collectively trying to make is you need to bring joy into YOUR life first, and in the present moment. In doing so, you then automatically bring more joy into everyone else’s too.

            Martyrs went out of fashion in the Middle Ages. Catch up with the times, man. 🙂

        • True, but just in case I have more of my mother’s genetics instead of my father’s I need to financially plan for living into my late 80s.

    Still sick-y but hopefully getting a bit better? Left the house for the first time in days and went to another free hockey game last night and watched the Gladiators lose 8-2, yikes. If we would have won we would have scored yet another free round of tickets. Tonight seeing one of my all-time favorite musicals, “Next To Normal” (The Wallace Buice Theatre Company). I’ve seen it twice, once on Broadway with partial original cast and once a local production in Memphis. If I feel up to it and get staycation leave granted, I will try to make Black Sheep. Sunday is also my one-year hash anniversary and my 75th hash.
