Bite Me!

I am far from an expert. Now normally, a person who types those words is referring to a certain thing. For example, I am far from an expert on spring fashion. When you are mountainstroh your spring, summer, fall and winter wardrobe is made up of Levis 501s, polo shirts (for work), tshirts, hoodys,  cargo shorts and gray sweats. I wear sandals year round, and when it gets cold I sometimes add sandals… sometimes

Now me, I am not really an expert on anything.  I know a lot about some things, and just enough to get in trouble about others. I’ve got enough knowledge about the Bible to ask annoying questions, and I’ve read enough science fiction to hold my own in many a science discussion.

Now, compared to most people my age, I am in pretty damn good shape. Shoot, it was only about 5 months ago Rob and I rode across an entire state!

So maybe I am NOT old!! But wait, last month I had to have a colonoscopy, that’s a sure sign that I AM old…  (No issues by the way, healthy as a horse!)

So as you can see, there are times I argue with myself on just whether or not I am old.  I do have to admit, though, there are some advantages to being in my 6th decade (UGH OLD AGAIN!)… Continue reading “The stuff we do”

We grow’s them TUFF up here!

February and early March have been rough around here weather wise. I know, I know, per the calendar, it is still winter. But normally by now there are some hints that spring is coming.

This year, though, winter has been digging in its heels and NOT letting go. As shown here last Monday after Thunder Snow (A snow laden thunderstorm) hit.

This can make it hard to work out…. Continue reading “We grow’s them TUFF up here!”
