Happy Caturday, Wheelizens!

Does the motor sound labored and do you hear groans from the tires?

The polished concrete floors ripple when they ride by. 👿

It’s been good having you and Miss Harper back around, dV8.

Indeed it has!

Hope teh Brits are enjoying their first full day of independence in a while.

Liberty hooliganism!!1!

We’re having lunch with MamaK today, which’ll be nice…except for the commute.

=============================

Too soon?

Hi, Mac!

Cheers for your good wishes. Hope you and Elena are well this morning.

“Boxit”; heh. (Better than “Buryit” or “Scoopit”, I reckon.)

So now that Brexit was successful, which domino will fall next? I hear Finland, or even Sweden might get uncucked.

But I haven’t been following it all that closely, so I really don’t know which country is the most probable next domino.

Happy Cat[box]urday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa, and Mac!

Fatwa -- safe travels, and enjoy your day!

Mac -- enjoy your solitude. Ditto what Fatwa said in re the financials.

Good morning, GN! Good luck to Elena at the tables -- as I recall though, Texas doesn’t have any casinos at all, right, Mac? Up to Oklahoma?

I can understand that, Mac. I bet though what you would enjoy is working on/rebuilding old slot machines. Some intricate mechanics inside those.

Mrs Sven will celebrate 20 years at her job next month -- corporate sent her a nice card congratulating her on reaching that milestone, thanking her for her years of service, and asking her to choose between two commemorative gifts to celebrate the event: a brass lapel pin shaped as the number 20, or a “custom” badge holder.

Decisions, decisions….

I found out last night that my [older] brother retired yesterday. He’s a few months shy of 62. Given how much he travels for work, mostly by car, I don’t blame him for wanting to get out, but that’s not something I’m going to be able to do in a year.

Congrats to your brother, Paddy. Sudden decision on his part?

The first I heard about it was on Facebook. From some of the comments from his cow-workers, it sounds like it’s been a rough few years for a number of people.

Manners. Thanks for the input on veggie washing. The peroxide method is not one that I was familiar with -- might give that a whirl.

It’s not so much the washing that’s a pain; it’s the drying off.

Odd. It hit 87 degrees this afternoon, and starting Monday we have freeze watches in effect.
