It's the Wong one for me.

Got my hairs did and went to the grocery store to get fixings for cauliflower crust pizza. I’m topping it with sauce, fresh mozzarella, spinach, and prosciutto. Home watching bad tv, laundering, and cleaning. It’s now snowing.

Oh, to be
In my N-2B.

It's up to 28F right now, but still cold enough to wear my N-2B. I've had this one for years (I have another one in storage someplace -- I think -- that I got in the '80s) and this is the first time it's been cold enough for it. (I haven't had the hood zipped up though.)

Happy Doggio Day!!!

It's cold but beautiful here right now, but we're supposed to have nasty weather this afternoon.
We're supposed to go up the hill and visit our friend who has terminal cancer this afternoon, so we're going anyway. This may be our last time to see him.

We're watching the Westminster dog agility show.

Don't think there's anything else on the agenda today.

Supper has been supped and the biiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiig trash can hauled all the way down to the road for pickup tomorrow. Also, 'tis rainy and drizzly out. Still better than ice and/or snow.

Shades might I suggest some "No Snow" signs.

I had to play around on Google to find the right match but I had a N-3B I wore for ages in the winter on the motorcycle. A MP at Bragg I knew liberated it somehow from a Pope-weenie under questionable circumstances I am guessing. That SOB was actually nicely warm at zero and 70mph and it was great cushioning when the idiot who tried to kill me tried to kill me. Now that you mention it I am starting to miss it.

ruble, you're a more foolish braver soul than I riding in sub zero weather. I rarely ride when it's under sixty.

Heathenated and lunched. Our speaker this month was a civil rights prof from Fisk and she was interesting. She brought home how much progress there has been since our country's beginning and how much more work there is to be done.

Since it was a late/large lunch, supper was carrots and celery with peanut butter. Nelson is still trying to get the peanut butter from the roof of his mouth.

Home from the armpit.

Had a fairly nice time. Enjoyed visiting with my friend.
She has a shiz tzu, smaller than my cat, and Ripple was afraid of him. Usually her dog ignores Ripple but today he was trying to be friendly. They played a little, then her dog went behind a chair to take a nap.

It was pretty nice at my mother's, but it's a lot easier to visit when all four of the boys aren't there.
Quite honestly, I don't understand how she stands the chaos of mess and noise.
She sent me home with a table, which I have no idea where to put, and some more books that Niece2's bf found in the basement. They aren't mine, but I brought them home anyway.
The table is the kind meant to go behind a sofa, and I think if I put it there, the sofa will be too far out into the room. I may put it in the office.
Nephew1 had a meltdown over Ripple being there. His other great-grandmother has a nasty dog that bit him and he's afraid of dogs. My niece said he was faking it, but her bf and Nephew1 said he was scared and Ripple got put out in the sunroom. A few minutes later, Nephew4 is opening the door to let Ripple in, and wanting to play with him.
Kids!

Learned how to use my phone as a mobile hotspot so my son could play with his tablet on the trip. I had no idea it would use up so much of my battery though.



It started snowing right before we got home, so good timing.

Much afghaning has occurred. Now I'm heading back to bed because I's tahred. I'll probably be late tomorrow because I need to take FCD early for his colonoscopy, poor baby.

Thus endeth my Sunday...

I think I've mentioned this before but I didn't get a car license until I was 21. I totaled a new MG-B on my permit and my insurance man (a cousin) informed me I was in 17-X --------- my rates would come down when the Red Army turned left on Broadway. Insurance for a Pinto, if I bought it outright, would be over $1000 a year and my Harley for everything including flood but not theft was $65. So year round no matter what I rode. In the winter I added a sidecar, tossed a hundred pound bag of sand and a set of chains in it, and rode. I actually got a car and drove at just under 20 but in questionable circumstances.

One thing I regret not having a shovelhead or other ironhead right now is having to park it at 20. I tried riding my Evo II in single digits and quickly learned that you get all these little pinholes in the front head seals. And I'm too old to rip the motor down just for that every spring. But I do have that WL motor I got from Bill's and evil plans so maybe next winter -------- ye never know.

Evening all. Indoor soccer has been completed successfully, no alarms or excursions. Parents are all mellow and the kids (mostly) uninjured (some bumping and bruising is inevitable when you combine 6-11 year olds and hardwood floors).

Home about 6:30PM, ate a host of cheesey bread and am awaiting bedtime.

All y'all take care and I'll catch you on the next MMP.

Alpha Industries made the MA-1 for the Air Force, before the Nomex CWU-45/P replaced it. I'm pretty sure they had a (the) contract for the L-2B, N-2B, and N-3B too.

I've thought about an N-3B, but the N-2B is doing just fine.

Yup, absolutely! I was first a pall bearer for my paternal grandfather when I was but a pre-teen. It's a southern thing, I think.

Quick story - I was standing around during the visitation time before the funeral service proper, looking at all the flower arrangements, when I noticed one with some really pretty yellow roses. Upon closer inspection, I saw a stinkbug on one of the roses. My first thought was, "There's Unk, checking to see who showed up for his funeral!". And after I promised to be nice at the funeral...
