Yeah, because at 50 you're like... fuggit... so 10 years later at 60 it all goes to sh*t cuz you said fuggit at 50.

Right?

So I gotta keep doing stuff? Dammit.


or avoid a serious injury and keep doing stuff...

my knees wore out so I was unable to run, then the knee pain got so bad, I had a year or two of inactivity, and then knee replacement surgery....after two years of collecting dust, it was hard to regain the desire to work-out... although I walk more now than ever before, it really doesn't help with maintaining muscle strength...

True story

But every dealer carries certain brands, and you'd have to visit a bunch (and deal with salespeople pushing you to apply for financing while window shopping) to see a sampling of everything.

The dealers really are just finance companies that use RVs as collateral. I've not heard of any having stellar service departments, and they will not go to bat for the customer on a warranty issue for fear of losing the contract with manufacturer for pushing back crap products (they're all crap)

RV shows are fun to do in the winter, wander through a bunch of campers from a bunch of manufacturers and you can blow off sales staff a LOT easier. Some of the smaller shows have really pushy sales dudes that you literally have to tell them to F off to get them to stop hounding you. But the big Chicago show doesn't have that issue, and the dealers bring stuff worth looking at, not just their leftovers and slow selling models.

From the time I was 13 until the day my son was born I was 135lbs... Metabolism issue...

After my son was born I quit smoking pot and hit 190 in about 6 weeks time... Couldn't stop eating, never felt full...

Got back on the marijuana and dropped to about 156...


Up until I became a nurse I partook daily. Even through school. But once licensed the risk was too great so I had to stop. I was never over 180, usually 165-170. After a year I crossed 200, then crept up to 250 and then backed off on eating and stuff and settled into the 220s.

That would have been better.

I invested about 10 seconds looking her from her feet to here head, then chuckled, and said "Yeah.. Ok."

She semi slowly, waddled out.

I was 217 with a 32" waist for many years until I blew up my back... After the 3 level fusion I gained weight... Couple more surgeries and 5 levels fused and a left knee replacement I am what I am... But I'm considering making an effort to drop some pounds... Gotta look good at da beach and stuff... Mellow

I heard you were having trouble catching chickens. I once wore size 30 pants at 160 lbs and I looked like a skeleton during and after my first divorce. Used to be 6'2" and 185-195 when I played a b lot of basketball. still looked good at 210, but as the weight went up the waist went up. I've slowed down in the last 4 years and can't seem to get any faster. right knee is annoying me for the last year and I never know what my back will be like in the morning.

No drafter... The porno about me has a different name.

I've honestly never enjoyed sports movies... Hell... I don't like watching sports. I barely have an interest in watching rugby, and when I would watch it it was mainly to try to learn it a bit better.

Well, Aids was very popular back then but that weight was from training up to 10 miles each day during marathon season. I literally had trouble eating enough carbs to replenish. Now, not so much.

I wish I liked eggs... I've tried many many times, many many ways... Even if I could get to where I enjoyed the taste, my stomach makes me pay for it...

And, I only breakfast like once a month, if that... Not my preferred meal time...

But as it stands, no heavy cream for the hollandaise so it'll wait until tomorrow...

Opel, We need to talk if you’re putting cream in Hollandaise. Your ingredient list should be egg yolks, butter, salt, pepper, cayenne, lemon juice, white wine. Maybe a dash of hot sauce. If you have an immersion blender, it dramatically speeds up the process.

She is just concerned for the store's bottom line and the employees' welfare. Therefore an exchange will keep them from taking a loss on that sale

Very thoughtful of her

Exactly right. Much the same as when she comes home with arms full of bags and proclaims "It was all on sale! I actually saved you $200!!"
