Artificial.

I won't kill a tree for a pagan ritual.

Take it out of the box, assemble, light and adorn, place evergreen potpourri stinky thing on the fireplace for olfactory pleasure.

Drug all the Christmas stuff up from the basement today. Three trips with the hand truck.

I should have put in a dumbwaiter when I built this place.

Got the tree up, and decided I needed a break before stringing the lights.

Just having a quick cup of hot cocoa, complete with seasonal attitude additives, and thought I'd check in.

This part of Christmas gets me all worked up. Sometimes it even feels like it did when it still had the magic.

Anyway, cocoa is gone, time to get the lights up.

BFN.

Holy cow.

That video is nearly an hour long.

Nice way to get the skin nice and crispy though.

Waiting for Mrs Racerís son to pick me up. Turkey is at her sisterís place, a 3 hour drive from here. She has been down there a week or so, helping their mom move into assisted living.

With time on my hands, I was thinking.

In the 5 years I drove Monstro and company, I drove far enough to circle the Earth more than 32 Times.

Beautiful John.

Although I don't do the Facebook thing, it did allow me to cast a vote. Not sure if it counts, but you have it, just the same.

Happy Turkey Day to all of you too.

Over the last 24 hours or so the temps have warmed quite a bit higher than normal. The snow in the mountains melted. That, combined with very heavy rain and the local rivers all reached flood stage. When I got up to get ready for work yesterday I could here the river I live along.

The water was running very high. My drive to town crosses a bridge upstream. There is a small group of homes by that bridge and they were all flooded, and the water was nearly over the road by the bridge.

Fortunately I made it through. A few times in the past I have been stuck and couldnít get out. There is another route out, downstream about 20 miles, but there is a bridge there also, and the approach there gets flooded too.

This morning the rain has let up, and the water receded.

Now, time to get ready for The Feast.

All this talk of cycling teams.

Reminds me of the Swedish Bikini Team.

Remember them?

My mom is 81. When she was in her late 60's she sold a business she owned, and some property, banked a couple million, bought a motorhome and a car that she flat tows behind it, and became a snowbird. She is up here in the Northwet for the summer, and travels down to the Southern states for the winter.

She has gone all over the US visiting friends and relatives. No sign of slowing down yet either.

No longer own a car?



Even if I lived in a city I would have to have a car. Getting out of the city as often as possible would be essential, and only doable by owning one.

Public transit only goes so far . . . . . .



The town with the post office for my zip code is 40 klicks Northwest from my home.

There is an other, smaller town about 8 klicks that also has a post office, but it isn't our post code, Southeast of here.

The nearest city, which also has the World's Largest Building, is 52 klicks Southwest.

The mountains are at my doorstep. But I'll drive just the same.

I decided when I was in my 20's that I would not burden the world with more people. At one point I wanted to adopt, as I felt there are plenty of unwanted children in the world, and I could give them a chance at a good life. But my first wife, Mrs. Racer 1.0 turned out to be a poor choice as a mate, and I decided she wasn't fit to be the mother of my children.

By the time I hooked up with Mrs. Racer 2.0, her kids were grown up, and she no longer possessed the desire to have anymore, even if she didn't have to bear them.

*sigh*

Oh well.

Her kids have kids, and they all treat me as part of the family. So I guess I got kids.

And grandkids.

In fact, the oldest grandkid is almost out of high school.

But he hasn't made me a great grandpa yet.

At the present production rate each spar takes 2 days to finish up the work the automated machinery can't do. Drill one day. Install the next. Walk to the opposite side of the tool and do the same to the left (or right, whichever is next).

Repeat.

When I worked in that business we played cribbage at breaks and lunch. Not only in the office, where I spent most of my days, but on the odd slow days they sent me out with a crew, and we played it in the truck during lunch and the ass time.

Do you pack a lunch in the morning, and take it to work with you?

Or do you get up from the desk and make that long walk to the kitchen?
