    Yeap, twice I think. Or at least I had to find my way back here twice. Where’s John Hill when you need him….

    Drift, Paolini’s books are for teens although I enjoyed them also. What type of books besides horror do you like, jj? I am an avid reader myself.
    You might like Rosalind Miles. Historical fiction and very good. So is Philippa Gregory who wrote all those books about the War of the Roses. Amazing writing.
    I do sci-fi/fantasy a lot.

    For some unknown reason, I planted different hot peppers. Don’t know some of them but man, are they hot. I ain’t eating them. Harvest very good so far. My one cucumber plant wants to set a record, green beans were plentiful. Tomatoes all coming in. Yum yum

    Well, well…. Howdy there, partners!

    Not sure what the hell happened, but here we are, or I am at least, so it wasn’t my own drivers needing an update, or some other jargon I’m incapable of dealing with. I did write the Columbian, and suspect that whole ‘pagely’ thing was because of our spam event. Not sure but reading about Pagely, it’s suppose to block spam, among other bits on controlling your WordPress blog site.

    Thanks, Columbian!!!

    Oh, and hoping you are all fine after the Great Smoke. Call me a bleeping environmental tree hugger if you must, but just spent 3 days tethered to the news about the Eagle Creek fire. I’ve had a love relationship with the Columbian River and Gorge since I was a very small child and figured out I was a reincarnated Native American. Ok, that’s far out, but hey, it’s my own out of the body experience, no one else’s, so I say why not own it, right? Or some such… Anyway, hoping for total containment on this fire before the next ‘there’s no global warming’ catastrophe hits…another fire, or Irma, I think it’s called. Then, there’s Jose… sigh! But guess what? Tomatoes thrive on smoke! Who knew? They’ve all gotten ripe at once.

    I saw the Sun today. I wanted to do a little dance, but my skills are sorely lacking. So I jigged. Heh.
    When the Basement imploded I inquired. John got back to me and now, obviously, it’s fixed.
    But John also wrote its days may be numbered. Sigh.

    I -do- miss the days when we had a dozen or more posters. Another sigh.

    Ditto, Drift…

    Maybe we should make a plan, some sort of Fred Flintstone Lodge Brother secret fist bump, or was it a belly bump? Anyway, some way of continuing beyond Forum. Yeah, I miss the…dare I say, heat of exchange and deeper pool of ideas and opinions. Not to give less credence to those of us still around, but where the hell is kat (?) or goldie? I could just sit back and lurk in those days and it’d be like reading a few chapters in a action book, those two. Damn.

    Hi kids, long time no see. Ever since the tRump erection, I’ve been busy fighting the fight. Oh, and I bought a new motorcycle, so there’s that. What’s the “spam” thing? Anyway, I’m good, tRump sucks and hasn’t done a damn thing except make money for himself. Just wait until after this big blow, he’ll put in a claim to the federal govt. for “relief”.

    -Aides Clip Toenails, Wash Hair Of Mumbling, Bedsore-Ridden Trump As President Enters 155th Straight Hour Of Watching Cable News-

    WASHINGTON—Carefully maneuvering to avoid blocking his view of the television, White House aides were reportedly called upon Tuesday to clip the toenails and wash the hair of the bedsore-ridden, incoherently mumbling President Trump as he entered his 155th straight hour of watching cable news. “It’s important to reposition the president every couple of hours because it keeps his blood circulating and prevents his sores from getting infected,” said White House aide Ryan Powers, one of the many staffers tending to the president during the past week of uninterrupted television viewing, performing tasks such as emptying his bedpan, sponging his clammy skin, and gently dabbing the drool off his face. “We have to make sure someone’s here at all times to change channels during commercials. Otherwise, he starts shrieking, and then it’s pretty much impossible to calm him down. But he’s generally pretty comfortable and has a call button for requesting another bowl of Fruit Loops whenever he wants them, which is a lot.” At press time, frantic aides were rushing to soothe the president, who had accidentally rolled onto the remote, shut off the television, and had to spend a full 10 seconds in a quiet room with his own thoughts.

    What kind of bike you get, Hawk?
    The engine in my ol’ pan failed last Aug. just this side of Bozeman. It’s weird, it’s like the flywheels
    shifted pinching the rod bearings. Luckily I was only doing a couple of MPH when it semi-seized. I took
    it up to Alex at Columbia. I don’t do lower ends.

    Unfortunately, on the 22nd it looks like I’ll be driving for our annual pilgrimage up to Edmonds and
    Orcas to visit my old shipmates Stone and Gator. I’m not about to let a busted bike keep me from going.
    The Brakeman, Face and maybe Uncle Touchy will be riding.

    I was just thinking of posting my Aug. trip report here (we spread Fried Fred’s ashes in Billings), but
    I’d have to spend some time editing out the foul language ;^)

    Sorry about your ride, Drift. I know it’s not a classic Harley but I got a new Triumph Thunderbird Storm. 1700cc in Lava red. It’s a sweet ride. It came on a truck with 0 miles on it from New Hampshire. I got a screamin deal on it, a little over $5k off list price and it cost me $600 for shipping. It was so cool. The guy pulls up in a semi, rolls the bike off the back, I sign a few papers and fire it up and ride away.
    I don’t know how to post pics on here or I would. Hope you guys have a good time.

    Fox News is Trump State TV. People who watch it a lot tend to suck.

    Republicans can’t govern when in charge of our government, then blame government for everything.
