Congratulations on getting the VA job - Tell us about it.

We have a good summer here in granddaughter land. Yep, day care starts at 0600 and ends about 1800 hrs. The 10 and 12 year olds hit the couches at 0601 and sleep till noon. The 3 year old is all over the place doing everything, all day -

Come back and visit more often -

C8 looks awesome, especially at the price point. But I'm looking for something less sports car. While I was intrigued and impressed upon release, the C8 doesn't tickle my emotions. Maybe I would have to drive it? Plus, can't beat that reliability from Toyota/Lexus. They make boring cars, but they'll go 200k+ miles easily.



And glad to hear you're still enjoying the life of being a g-paw! I'll be there in 30 years

Oh, don't feel too left out, I'm here a lot and I still don't "get" what some folks are saying - especially on RT later at night. Maybe alcohol (with them) is involved? -

I miss the late night escapades in RT. I can't even stay up past 10pm anymore. Hell, after 2-3 beers, I'm feeling buzzed and those aren't even stouts!



Granted, I did lose a ton of weight since leaving IT. 72.5kg to 63.5kg upon last physical.

We saw the badger again in my backyard. We called animal control and they referred us to fish and game. They said we could kill or trap it if we had a license. They also gave us the numbers for a couple outfits that will come set traps:$225.

So we talked with some of the neighbors. They all said to kill it, and they will be on the lookout too. They all said nobody would say a thing to the sheriff if they heard gunshots to kill it. So now I have my Ruger 10/22 ready to go at the back door.

Country living.

Goddamnit, now I have to do this too. Maybe I'll do it when I get a header, do plugs, rear subframe bushings, diff inserts, hood vents, .......... This is getting to be a long list...
