Oh I'm gonna end up with major knee surgery one day I'm sure. I've been very very careful these last couple years to take it easy, but I know, all its gonna take is maybe bumping the corner of my desk at work and stumbling, and I'm going to be up **** creek without a paddle.

I need to just do like I used to and get a few to stash around in different places, particularly the trunk of my car. I'm never very far from my car.

I really don't want knee surgery. My sister just went through it, and I'm beginning to think she's never going to make a full recovery.

Good luck.
Good advice there. I got an arborist to come out and trim a big silver maple in my back yard. I expected it to take him days. He was done in less than 1 day and very reasonable price.

I called two companies to come and give me estimates. I don't know if they ever showed up. I had to get some sleep and asked them to call me with the estimate. I never got a call so I hope they call tomorrow. One place I called was sending out a certified arborist. This Maple tree I have is well used by several critters and I'd like to keep it standing if I can. Also, it provides a lot of shade for my house in the summer.

I am hoping for a reasonable price. I just paid a few hundred to get my car fixed. I didn't expect another big expense so soon. I'm fretting.

Dang , nothing worse than leaving court over a ticket and getting another one .
Least it was a warning ticket , though I was roasted , he had me 80+ in a 55 .

One of my trooper buds found this floating in the river behind his house
Has not come back stolen yet but the Detectives are looking into it , if nothing comes back then its his . Its a honda rancher so it will live if I can get to it soon

Wait. Is there any question if its stolen? WTF dude?! Have the trooper run the VIN and find the owner. I bet that it was stolen and they didn't report it because they probably haven't discovered the theft yet or something like that.

My neighbor just found out their motorcycle was stolen out of their garage. It has been several months since they opened the garage so they don't know when it was stolen.

Coming soon from Trip and Sue's redneck shade tree gunsmithing...

Stipling.

Oooooohhh I'm getting brave....
Y'all wish us luck. I think I'm going to let him handle the MSH since I have two spares, while I handle the front strap.

Thats why the detectives are on it now looking to see if any reports exist . NOW it could have floated away from high water since many homes sit close to the river but it has been in the water for at least a few months , ignition is intact as well .
Could also be an insurance claim , who knows , that part of the river is the head waters , only 3 miles from where found from the dam
