That's not stretched... maybe the angle on the pic makes it kinda look like it is though? The only mods on the bike are the Two Brothers exhaust, aftermarket indicators/brake lights, and a power commander.

Getting there. I was pretty consistent at the last two practice sessions in the lake (only had to swim once in about a dozen tries). I need more reps to cement the muscle memory and build endurance and confidence.

I haven't tried yet in moving water, but plan to face that challenge/fear soon. (I really don't like swimming in rapids...)

That's just what I bought this year, I still have another big plastic container in the garage with a lot more seeds. But I didn't store them properly so I don't know if they are ok or not. I usually have lots of seeds. I feel rich with them.

About the beans, the pill bugs have been eating my beans, I didn't have a lot this year. So apparently it was not enough.

I was disappointed that she did not want to keep up with it, but by no means would I "make" her stay with it. Music is such a personal art that it must be desired. It can't be imposed - especially by proud parents, <sigh>.


Bass flute.

All but one of the bean plants I planted earlier this year sprouted and by the next day was "gone" to never return. Literally looked at a 1-2" plant growing and then nothing later... I'm guessing birds or something got them since they were in cups (not in the ground) inside a fenced in yard with no trees/etc providing access (never seen squirrels/rabbits/etc make it into the yard).

I have several favorite toys. The latest is a 2015 Lexus RCF. I had a lot of negative feedback from others on here about spending money for a sports car but it has put a smile on my face.

That's a sweet ride. Who cares what others think!

I've lost the saved pictures I had when my old laptop died, so this is the closest I could find to my favorite toy. Shame that color scheme only lasted one year, but I'm glad to have a unique color.

Nothing like the sound of that three cylinder engine revving to 13,000 RPM.

Thanks! I did not know such existed. Then again, much as I like music, I'm not very knowledgeable about instruments beyond the "usual." Enjoy making beautiful music. Little in life can bring such joy. Aloha.

My TerraTrike Rover recumbent tricycle:

I never learned to ride a two-wheeler, and always wanted to, but hated to break a bone at this advanced age. Problem solved - just add another wheel.
