Unlike others here, I actually have a life....outside of the DT CT.

Has anyone else noticed that SD is on a roll with his pithy quips??

Eeee Gads!, as LaDi always says, I calculated the post/page count would go down when she's on road trip, not up!

SD in garage doing tool reorganize project (long needed) before next auto repair project, (Civic primary cat converter change out), enjoying cool 55F temps.

Yes, I visited the bridge once while driving back to TX from Pittsburgh. Stop at museum/shop and pick up a DVD, it's really cool.

https://officialbridgeday.com/bridge-day-info

Annual Bridge Day is 18/19 October, for Base Jumpers (not bungee) but I see on webpage No Dogs allowed. You guys might be able to see on way back if you didn't have Hoss with you. There is one higher bridge out west in CO- Royal Gorge at 955 ft. vs. 876 ft. New River. Royal gorge has RR tracks at bottom and NR gorge has river. They (crazy people) base jump from CO bridge, as well.

It's always a good idea to have at least one in reserve.

We have one in Colorado--predicted for all week. As well as temps in the mid 60's, even into the low 70's, which is just right in the bright sun and low humidity.

But our fall color isn't going to show up. We had a HARD freeze when the temps went down to 8 night before last, and everything is brown now

LOL, don't worry, I PM'd you. Just the one black bitch in the litter.

It was so much fun....nothing like ending your week in a pile of puppies! I was chewed on, climbed on, kissed, we played, they played, they barked and growled at each other, they ran around all over, they peed on the floor (ha!), they climbed all over each other trying to all fit in my lap...eventually they just crashed in a huge puppy pile on a blanket. It was the most fun. It totally cemented that I never, ever want to be a breeder, but I totally want more breeder friends so I can go do this more often!

If you go looking back through the posts about breeding, litters and puppies you'll find me saying: "Not cut out to be a breeder--bred one litter--3 puppies one still born girl (which was what I wanted) and two males--took me forever to find homes I thought were appropriate for them. When the one puppy I had placed locally was 7 months old and it was winter in Seattle--the next door neighbor of the 'owners' of that puppy called me--the puppy, now a gangly teen ager had been banished to a 10 x 10 pen and dog house and was living knee deep in mud--crying to come in. I climbed a 7 foot wood fence and hoisted the puppy over it and took him home. Eventually he went to Canada where, in the one litter he sired there was a beautiful BIS bitch."

So I've seen a lot of other peoples litters and get my next puppy from those litters--truly--I'm not cut out to be a breeder.

MEL!! Bug does NOT remember them!!! The quote says they were 1901 --1929. Excuuuuse ME! I was born in late 1939.

Quote:
"The Official Automobile Blue Book, 19011929: Precursor to the American Road Map"
John T. Bauer

Navigating by automobile at the dawn of the twentieth century was difficult because maps appropriate for this new mode of transportation were scarce. An early solution to this problem was the route guide. Listing turn-by-turn directions between various cities, route guides helped early motorists navigate a network of unmarked, local roads....

In addition to distances, landmarks are also at the heart of the route guides narrative. Not only did prominent landmarks identify the beginning and ending of routes, they identified individual turns or segments along the route. Most commonly, these intermediate landmarks were railroad tracks and power/telephone poles....Other popular landmarks were buildings (courthouse, church, school, post office, library, railroad station), bridges (covered bridge, iron bridge, small wooden bridge), businesses (drug store, blacksmith shop, grocery store), trolleys, and parks, including fairgrounds and cemeteries.


https://pdfs.semanticscholar.org/829...52c430c911.pdf (see page 9 for sample instructions)
But when I moved back to Washington and later to Oregon from California I went to a lot of dog shows with a friend and breeder of one of my champion males (from her first purpose bred show litter). Her husband told me she could get lost in a tin can and trying to follower her directions from anyplace to anyplace could pretty much be counted on the be a disaster. Her directions were pretty much like those quoted--I remember one bit of a direction she gave me to get back to the fairgrounds which were only 6 blocks from our motel--"Turn left at the Standard Station..." The problem was that between the motel parking lot and the fairgrounds (a straight shot--no turns at all) there were three (count 'em) three Standard stations"

Quote:
I remember seeing an old copy of one--seems like I remember things like "Drive 2.5 miles, turn left at first telephone pole onto dirt road. Follow fence line for 1 mile and turn right at old maple tree. Go left around cattle herd and drive 100 yards. Stop at white farmhouse" but maybe I just heard my parents parodying its instructions when we finally got to my grandparent's house after a 3 day trip. When we traveled, my dad would buy a couple of maps at the first gas station in a new state we stopped at. One for my mom, one for us kids, which we had to share. As the youngest, I rarely got a look at it.
LOL! And until I was in high school and my friends started driving I was the kid who got motion sick in anything that moved--my only recourse was to go promptly to sleep and stay asleep until we got where we were going--I did not read maps in cars and in fact can't really read anything in a moving vehicle even now.

I grew up with local maps when I started driving and about that same time the Thomas Bros Maps showed up--I don't know if they were only around on the west coast but for years I navigated any place in Washington, Oregon or California via the Thomas Bros Map--they came in entire states, big cities and in some places like Calfornia for counties. Any place else I went I counted on AAA to provide me with maps. Given a map and an opportunity to check the route before I left I could get anywhere. And back again.

Quote:
I love maps to this day...it's all of that pent up desire to grab the map away from the big kids and have it for my own.
I don't love them for the same reason, Mel, but I do love maps and even going places with some of my other direction and distance limited friends (lik the lady who freaked ot when we hit a section of Washington state that her GPS didn't have any driections for--just a blue screen and a womans voice saying periodically--"No mapping for this area..." my sense of direction is good enough if I wasn't sleeping before the driver got lost I could generally get us out of the unmapped area.

Boy--does that bring back memories and a few nightmares.

I'm still trying to figure out WTH that is ????


So far I'm leaning between a metaphor of LaDi's life, condensed into one short animated clip, or one of her Ex. Rocker B/F's on a binge .....

Hopefully, it's the latter...

Before GPS I could get anywhere with a map or directions....and once I went there I knew the way. Now with GPS I just sit back and listen. I never really tried to memorize the names of roads....just the visual clues. You know go down the road a bit and turn at yonder pine tree, then bare left by the boulder. Keep going for a bit and take a right by the old well. Drive a spell and you will get to your destination
Not a good idea Davy. We have had rental customers that put cars in a lake because GPS or Alexa or whoever told them to take a right. Really? You don't know what a boat ramp is? You didn't notice all the boat trailers?

Please don't do that! Go back to using a map! Old school is a dying breed.

Cursive writing is no longer taught in a lot of schools anymore. Who is going to be left to read our historical documents.

I drive to work hunting out a bank sign that has the time on it. Nope! Just the temperature. When Co-Pilot and I were riding together, we noticed for the first time, a bank with a clock on their steeple. It was in roman numerals. I was wondering how many people even know what Roman numerals are.

The generations just get dumber and dumber.

Guess I had a rant there. I am not sorry.

Nope. Not gonna take it back.

Plus, your truck has a wimpy engine. Guz can beat your truck, so can Rustine when she is running. And, tow more crap. Can't believe you bought into the Ford Tough bullcrap.

If you are not a crappy driver, because Scott was doing all the driving, then you must be a crappy co-pilot!

Just saying.

spocksdad,

I didn't even have to think about what it might mean--the visual just cracked me up--I didn't think it needed to mean anything...

All it really means is that I'm (obviously) easy to entertain.

Cursive Writing...
- no algorithms currently exist, to decipher and Data base Govn. store it
- why schools adapted, printing only

TPM (Tire Pressure Monitors)...
- Beau visually checks his tires, and can usually spot a 5 psi change...visually
- but the CIA needed tracking devices, on vehicles
- so TPM invented with FM antennae, for satellite tracking U

^^ Big Brother // and George Orwell book, 1984 coming true.
- best book, Larry read in Grade12

SP
KIDS are in-fact, getting dumber / Grade12's grads now, many cannot read a carpenters tape measure, &/or make manual change for a coffee purchase (out of a $5 bill).
