It was an interesting weekend with my obvious low light being the parking ticket I got on Edgewood Avenue because I failed to read the signage thoroughly. Why on earth would I not be allowed to park on the street, paying for parking as well, after 7pm on a Saturday? Oh well.

Many hashers did the long drive down to Senoia for a short, but fun, trail. It would have been a nicer commute if *I* lived in Luthersville… Steve, your absence was noticed, hope all is well.

    Ouch!! Called out on the blog! I was still thinking about it when Debbie advised me she had made an alternate plan involving breakfast and the grocery. Since it was 11:30 before we left, I knew the hash would lose. I know between 2-2:30 a big shower came through- hopefully it missed trail.

    Also not completed this weekend was the Saturday ride. While I knew chances were slim, I thought about it until I was awakened by a downpour at 0700. I did get up, as I knew the horses were out and needed to come in.

    We needed the rain, so I’m not complaining much.


    • Sorry, couldn’t resist. The weather gods spared us, it never really rained.

      One of hares, a first-timer told me he lives on Gordon Road. When I started mentioning things around there the other hare said “you sure know a lot about our area”. Lol

      • Steve says:

        Now if he knew about JEFDSDR, I’d be curious.

        We need to have a ride down our way. I could hook together some MTB/gravel roads and make a nice loop. So it on a Saturday and have lunch at the café.

        • Barb says:

          my tires would not like much gravel, but I’d love to ride my bike again someday……………….

        • I’m up for anything, but prefer skinny-tire riding. I need to get back in the saddle soon.

        • Bonnie says:

          If it’s easy-ish gravel riding, I’d be down (MTB). I’m slow but I have GPS so I can find my way when I get separated from the group. 🙂 But I also need to put in some miles on my skinnier-tire bike as well! Haven’t ridden it since STU! But in my defense I’ve mostly been on vacation or sick since then…

    • Bonnie says:

      Missed you FP!

    Talked to Sal (aka Burning Bush) about the hash yesterday, but we were putting up drywall, and she said it was 60 miles down there? is it really that far?
    anyway – she decided to skip the drive, and we had dinner on the deck & she told us the stories of BRAG.

    Kitchen is basically ready for the cabinets – I think they will be delivering & installing on Thursday.
    we need to shop & decide on the countertop & backsplash, we just have no idea what we want to do………….

    • It was a decent travel, even from East Atlanta.

      Keeping an eye on the weather to see if I will go to Moonlight, which starts at the Public on Powers Ferry by Ray’s on the River.

    • Steve says:

      Pretty much. Figure it was about 7 miles (my guess) past JEFDSDR, which was the shortest/fastest route.

  3. Steve says:

    This just in from Georgia Public Broadcasting, who is soliciting funds (like always)-

    “Steve, it’s not to late…”

    Fail. Not sure Sesame Street covered to/too/two, but somebody needs some remedial work.

    I got to ride a bit of Streets Alive yesterday. Good weather, streets were packed. My 9 year old riding companion decided the Beltline was more his speed so I had to honor that.

    • Barb says:

      I heard of lots of people out at Streets Alive -Allan was very happy to not be working. All those closed streets makes it tough on the fire engine.

      • ITP Lurker says:

        It was wretched riding a bike downtown and having to stop at every block waiting for a light to change. I can’t imagine navigating a fire truck through that, unless you just said fuck it and bulldozed through the barriers. As if, right? 😉

    just bought a wireless speaker from the Amazon treasure truck to pickup later today.
    figured we could use another 1.

    • ITP Lurker says:

      So, what the hell is the Amazon Treasure Truck? I’ve seen mentions of it. It feels like some rando-garage sale/eBay concept that drives around town? As if they’re not getting enough of my money already, they’re trying to spin a wheel and hope to land on some offer that I won’t be able to refuse to get even more from me?

      • Stacy Fox says:

        Hahahaha now I wish it were! 🙂

        You can sign up to get a daily text of “what’s on the truck” that day on special. Then you order it and go pick it up from the truck which, sadly, is not moving when you do. Usually there’s more than one truck, located at different places around town so you pick the truck most convenient to you.

        I’ve yet to order one of these deals. But someday maybe they’ll have something I can’t refuse!

        • ITP Lurker says:

          So it’s a dystopian reverse Amazon? Instead of you choosing what you want delivered, they choose what you’ll go pick up??? No thank you, Jeff Bezos. You’ve jumped the shark here.

          But thank you, Stacy, for getting me up to speed! 😎😎

          • Stacy Fox says:

            HA! Yes, exactly that, now that I think of it. What a great way to sum that up. 😀

          • Barb says:

            I got a $10 credit (I’m guessing for using it for the 1st time). We had talked about getting a new speaker -so when it came up, and its only $26, I figured why not.
            It is funny – I’m driving to go get my amazon purchase…….

          • ITP Lurker says:

            I know they’re relentless at wringing costs out of the system, but making me go fetch my own purchase from some truck somewhere is a bridge too far. Which also makes the stationary Amazon lockers a non-starter for me as well. I’ll just go buy the damn thing I need from a normal store if it works that way.

            Harumph. 😉

        • If I didn’t have to worry about packages getting stolen from my porch I’d never use an Amazon locker again.

    • A couple of years ago one showed up over at Colony Square, but I couldn’t be bothered to go across the street to check it out.

  6. Due to a desire to eat free pizza, and the lack of abundant vegetarian pies, today is now a Meat Day.
