Yea for the Nob. I finally got to drive my car to work and back in a reasonable facsimile of good weather.
Going down at 04:00 not so exciting...but rather chilly.
But, man oh man...coming home?
Beautiful and sunny.
Vroom, vroom. For seven miles, then wait in traffic for an hour while they towed some piece of shit car off the highway that stalled and got rear ended.
That was short lived.
I am now in a foul mood and a ginormous garage sale to get ready for tomorrow.
Did I also mention that my whole neighborhood is taking advantage of my former good nature by rooting around our house for hidden treasures prior to tomorrows event?
TAKE IT. TAKE IT ALL. Save me a garage sale.
Then I can attempt another RELAXING drive.




Thank You for listening.



PFFFSST.



Sound of my first beer opening.

Remember the stubby bottle? This is my Memorial Day weekend weekend beer of choice:

Nothing good can be coming out of that bottle.


You might end up with a "Session" in the lav tomorrow.

The Pain, the pain.... Sitting through a garage sale

Cough!!...7 miles considered a cruz. Cruz starts at 50 miles

When you leaving for California....A really relaxing ride with nice Hotels and pools at every stop.

No, really sound good you got out up there... The reality of Canadian weather. But global warming is on the way.

Sorry about the clarity old man.

It's good, NF. Little hard getting used to a blocked cluster, but I can see the tach after about 2500 rpm.
3000 being 65 mph and 3500 bing 80 mph. What else do you need?

Sounds like a lot of burbling and squatting in the 1 hour traffic jam. But a drive is a drive.
Sorry you didn't qualify for a cruz nobster.:eek:

Well,today at our garbage sale, I had the SL parked outta the way on the lawn. It generated a couple of inquiries which Nobette and nobsters responded 2 MILLION DOLLARS!

So I put a sign on it for $20K.

Put an end to that nonsense.

Yeah, I paid $4.30 per gallon to fill up yesterday. But congratulations on being able to drive, I know it's crazy-making when it goes too long between drives. I just wish gas wasn't going up as high as it is.

If you find a drunken sailor to pay that, tell his mate he can have mine for less
and actually keep up with traffic too.
If I was sober, I would ignore your poor attempt at getting under my thin skin.
BUT since I'm not....Fuck You.
