Frugal Bike Repairs - Sledge Hammers Work Quite Well

As for my bike which had a wheel badly bent out of shape when I hit the mud hole the other day...  

Broken trail bike + sledge hammer = Good as new!

Newfound Adult Freedom - Sometimes It Can Be Difficult to Adjust

The priceless moments just keep rolling out of my now 18 year old daughter. We planned a bike ride tonight and her boyfriend was going along and she asks me if she could stay at his house afterward. I just look at her and said "Why are you asking?" She replies "THIS IS SOOOO COOOOL!!!!"

Breaking Teenage Curfew - Genius in the Making

So on the last night of being 17, my daughter who usually has a curfew of 11pm, has not come yet. Her strategy... to stay at her boyfriends house past 12 because she will be legally allowed to drive home and she won't miss her curfew because she will then be 18 and can come home when she wants... genius!

Teenage Curfew - The Race

Gotta laugh as my almost 18 year old daughter charges in the front door just as the clock turns 11:00, curfew time... she looks at the clock and throws up her arms and yells "Yeesssssss!"

Location Magnets for Cars - LSD, What a Trip That Would Be!

I was driving home and saw a car with one of those location magnet decals like LBI for Long Beach Island or SIC for Sea Isle City.  This one read LSD.  Couldn't get close enough to see what the location actually stood for, but I'm sure it was one hell of a trip for them! 

I wish I would have gotten a pic of that one...

When Strangers Give Offensive Greetings, For No Reason

I find it very strange when you are sitting at a stop light in town minding your own business, when a stranger parked in a car to the left is pulling out and as he gets next to your window says "a**hole". I didn't get in the guy's way or do anything offensive and I didn't even know the person. Yeah, well f*ck you too buddy!

Extending a Good Morning to Strangers

You know someone is having a bad day when: I was on my run this morning and I was passing the courthouse, a big burly scary looking dude was walking down the sidewalk... so I figured I'd be nice and said a "Good Morning"... he responded in a deep voice... "Says you". LMAO! I'm figuring he wasn't going to the courthouse for a good reason...

I guess on the mantra extending hospitality to strangers, doesn't always fly with some people...

Trying to Unlock Your House... With Your Car Key Unlock Switch

That awkward moment when you come home from a walk and get out your keys... then wonder why your house isn't opening when you keep pressing the unlock key on your car alarm switch. Yeah I did that. ...several times, including just now.

Plants Gone Wild - Part 4: You Know You're Having Too Much Fun Working In Your Garden When...

In my efforts to reclaim my garden, nothing special occurred on this day of fighting "Plants Gone Wild".   However, when you are working in the hot sun doing some transplanting, things can get a little weird...
