Summer is heating up again down here in Texas just as the kiddos have about another week of freedom from their respective prisons. Most of the teachers report for incarceration today.
It's been a wild and crazy summer. Da Old Man Joe helped out the medical and insurance industries by spending way too much time in the hospital and rehab and Chelle has apparently been nibbled on by a zombie and requires brain surgery. So what's a friendly and helpful geek to do for her blogging buddies during these tough times?
I'm glad you asked. Since Crotchety's couch was destroyed or maybe I should say sacrificed during the process of getting needed medical attention (for him, not the couch), I started saving up my pennies and was able to find another couch at a great price:
Joe, it will ship Monday. I think the shipper is something called Allied Waste Services.
As for Chelle, well, I think that all she needs is a spare head. That's right. Just in case the zombies take too much out of the one she currently has:
Chelle is scheduled for surgery to append the extra head on Thursday. I'm a little concerned. Something seems to have happened to her suntan.
Oh wait. Isn't this blog supposed to be about me?
Of course it is.
I've started shopping for dikes. I googled but the results didn't show anything with wheels. I was rather embarrassed at what Google showed me. Um....I just don't think geological formations, dams, and.....er....
I think you mean bike, B-I-K-E. Are you dyslexic or something?
Oh wow. Mayde.
OK. Let me try the Google again. T-R-I-A-T-H-L-O-N B-I-K-E-S
Phew. Much better.
Now this one would be nice:
But I'm a little short on pennies so maybe I can find something like this that reminds me of my first bike:
Most likely this is what I'll be able to afford:
I'll pass on the lock.
