What's making you happy today?

Prolly won't be quite so happy later today...

BigV 07-19-2017 11:52 PM

I found my wallet.

Right where I left it. Sunday. :facepalm:

glatt 07-20-2017 07:41 AM

Have you seen my leatherman? I can't find it.

captainhook455 07-20-2017 08:50 AM

Really? Jim sent me one for my birthday.[emoji481]

Do you still have the holster?

glatt 07-21-2017 01:39 PM

Nope. I lost it all.

It's a black holster too. Nice and stylish and impossible to find in the bottom of a bag.

The last place I remember using it was on the scout trip, but I was careful to put it in my checked bag. Maybe it's still in that bag when I put it away. Seems unlikely though.

It's not like me to lose stuff.

Gravdigr 07-22-2017 02:23 PM

I went to a place that sells returns/overstocks/closed store sellouts and found a set of computer speakers by Philips for $10. They even came w/a little tiny sub-woofer. I ain't gonna disturb the neighbors, or anything, but, they sound pretty damn good for little tiny speakers.

Not a fucking thing, not one fucking thing. :(

I've reached a point in life where a birthday is just another day, I don't get all excited like when I was a kid, nor do I dread getting older because I'm pretty much enjoying life as I age.

Yesterday, the 25th was my 61st birthday and I did something I have never done before. I bought a brand new "off the lot" vehicle. My whole adult life I have only ever bought used cars. Mostly because I couldn't afford a brand new one and I tend to be kind of cheap with things like cars. Used has been fine, the car needs to stop and start and have good air conditioning.

But since my wife's pre-retirement bonuses came in upon the sale of her company and we have paid off all our debt we felt the time was right for a new car to take us into retirement when that happens. A car payment was not in the cards before but now is ok, we got a really good interest rate and the wife says it will be fine. My wife still drives her company lease car with the lease good for another 18 months. After that she might buy it or just get another lease car, she plans to retire in 2020 so her ride is taken car of for a few years.

I decided to get a Ford F150 pickup with the 4x4 Lariat Super Crew Cab package and added the top trim package with most of the bells and whistles. Having a pickup makes it easier for camping, fishing or going to the lumber yard and the cab is big enough for 4 passengers to ride comfortably. The bed is rhino lined and has a folding torneau top that locks and is pretty moisture resistant.

glatt 07-26-2017 07:20 AM

Congratulations! Nice and shiny. Sweet ride.

xoxoxoBruce 07-26-2017 10:00 AM

Nice, although a tough color to keep clean. :lol:

Well, I didn't want black or white or red so then you are more limited as some models only ship with certain colors to choose from. I've always favored blue and the other blue is much lighter, this one was the best of the choices on the lot.

Kind of a cool feeling when I got the email indicating we had paid off my AMEX bill in full.

From the Irritated thread - "On the bright side, bottled 60 pounds of honey last night. Now I can't find my jar labels (mildly irritated). "
No longer irritated. Found and printed my honey labels.

Maybe this belongs in the irritating thread. I still can't find my leatherman. It was a gift and I just looked up what it would cost to replace it with the same model. Holy crap was it expensive. Around $125.

I'm thinking it was stolen from my checked luggage by TSA. It's not like me to lose tools I cherish, and I remember putting it in my checked luggage. It's either that, or an unknown boy scout in a dorm I was sleeping in. The hypothetical scout could have stolen my wallet and phone though and didn't. I think it was TSA. Dude looks at x-ray of bag, see the multitool. Pretends to check something else out in the bag and slips the tool into his pocket. Simple and fast.

If I had known it was so expensive, I would have left it at home.

Griff 07-27-2017 03:32 PM

That is definitely irritating. We had a camera, with vacation film, stolen from a checked bag back in the day. Unacceptable.

classicman 07-28-2017 04:57 PM

Nowhere man... I'll buy a bottle if yer sellin... PM me.

classicman 07-28-2017 04:58 PM

glatt - the phone and wallet are trackable and you'd have immediately known. The leatherman, not so much. Still wouldn't put it past a kid.

Mea Culpa.

I just got an email from my aunt. Sent to all my cousins with a picture of something she found at the cabin a week after I flew through security.

Attachment 61422

My apologies to the fine professionals in the TSA of Ft. Lauderdale and to the entire Boy Scout organization for even hinting that they might have questionable character. It was me. I misplaced my multitool, and my aunt found it. It was all me.

But I'm getting it back!

Gravdigr 08-01-2017 02:32 PM

That ain't no Leatherman.:eyebrow:

BTW, are you wearing your scarf today?

Gravdigr 08-01-2017 03:45 PM

I'm happy about stuff that makes me happy.

Boy, I sure hope I didn't make anyone else happy with that post.

monster 08-01-2017 04:15 PM

we planned an adventure to picnic dinner in a park way outside of Rome allegedly full of original aqueducts ....and it worked!

Clodfobble 08-01-2017 04:17 PM

Yay! Hope we'll get pictures when you guys get back.

One of the chemo drugs, which made me very sick, has been eliminated from my "cocktail"! The oxaliplatin caused all sort of nasty side effects, like making food taste awful, being overly sensitive to cold to the point of pain (drinking and touching), and painful tingling in my hands and feet. I ended up dropping nearly 20 pounds from it - from 110lbs to 90lbs. I requested to have my dosages lowered, so my doc did that with capecitabine and just totally eliminated the oxaliplatin. I'm much happier so far - not as sick. Also, my CT scans are showing either no growth or just very slow growth so far. The type of cancer I have cannot be cured, the drugs only prevent growth, so, so far okay.

Gravdigr 08-03-2017 11:46 AM


monster 08-03-2017 11:54 AM

beest is picking up your oxaliplatin..... starting again on Thurs. ding ding round two. Good luck with your next phase.

Pico and ME 08-03-2017 12:07 PM

I'm so sorry for Beest, that stuff sucks! I purchased a dozen of the one-sized stretch gloves so that I could get things out of the refrigerator and freezer. I could only drink room temperature or hotter beverages. I hope his side effects aren't as bad as mine were.

How did he manage the trip?

monster 08-03-2017 12:36 PM

This is the second time around, we know what's coming. Eating gelato every day here in Rome in anticipation of the frozen dessert desert :D such a struggle :lol:

They found the motherfucker guilty. Minimum 8 years, maximum life. Sentencing October 12th.

I'm so proud my cousin was able to testify in the same room with him.

Undertoad 08-24-2017 06:46 PM

Well done.

fargon 08-24-2017 09:04 PM


xoxoxoBruce 08-24-2017 10:24 PM

Give him Life without parole... or food, or water, or air. :mad2:

What a piece of shit.

Gravdigr 08-25-2017 11:40 AM

Hang 'em high, and make sure they're dead.

Griff 08-26-2017 07:46 AM

Justice. Good.

monster 09-16-2017 09:57 PM

Beest is home after an unexpected 5-day stay in the hospital. All fixed up and ready to fight some more. I missed him. And I was there a good deal of the time. We are so lucky to live where we do.

That said.....hospitals suck and I saw stuff here that I can't even imagine happening in the most underfunded NHS hospitals. No pillows to be found in the ER for example. ...and yet one miraculously appeared when I threatened to head up to the geriatric ward and mug a granny/distract her with knitting while I stole one

Clodfobble 09-17-2017 06:45 AM

Glad he's home.

BigV 09-17-2017 09:37 AM

welcome home Beest.

don't, um, complain about the pillows.

Gravdigr 09-17-2017 12:30 PM

The worst, slowest time I ever experienced was waiting in a hospital.

Fuck cancer.

Gravdigr 09-17-2017 12:31 PM

Time to re-engage Beest-Mode!!

fargon 09-17-2017 12:33 PM

Glad to hear that you are better.

Griff 09-17-2017 05:46 PM

I'm glad you're home Beest.

Pico and ME 09-17-2017 07:32 PM

Sorry that trouble put Beest in the hospital in the first place...fuck cancer and fuck chemo. Glad he is back in the nest with Monster.

xoxoxoBruce 09-17-2017 10:50 PM

I dunno, we haven't heard from Beest. He might have enjoyed five days of not getting calls to unload groceries, plus hot and cold running young nurses. ;)

Gravdigr 09-20-2017 12:38 PM

Yeahyeah, nice and hot. If I'm just looking.

If'n I'm actually ailing, I prefer my nurses 40 pounds overweight, 50 years or older, 25 years on the job, not phased by anything. Y'know, the good ones.

sexobon 09-27-2017 07:21 PM

I got my flu shot, nice and early.

BigV 09-28-2017 08:46 PM

Tonight we're going to Julia's on Broadway to see Le Faux.

Gonna be great! As is everything Twil arranges. :heartpump
