The intention was to get better than I am now.

Gentle looking peak looks like Tioga or Tioooga. Gardisky lake is just out of view. Short walk straight up from road to Saddlebag. Used to be great fishing there before everyone and his sister started slinging bait. Bait slingers!
Tioga peak is now a good place to watch bighorns.

Well, Ron, I hope you have it goin' on. How's the gently-aging process f*#ked with you here lately? Can you bite through steel yet?

Tad must've been a tad insecure cuz of us, I think. Or tryin' to impress Maureen. He forgot himself and left out the stretching, I just know it. If you think you haven't done enough, do more. It's the right way.

Sorry, Tad. You're right there! Well, it's OK, I've THOUGHT about execising to the extent I've taken two five-pound dumbells and thoroughly stretched using them in a free-form way, depending on how I feel. I feel loose. I can haul it up anything as long as there's a rope, just like always, except it'll take two time longer. Joints, that's the thing. Not the muscles. At least it is for me.

Never lift until you've stretched. Never get on a machine until then, either. I know that, and I haven't lifted since 1965 and haven't ever tried a machine. All that racquetball and not one time on a weight or iso machine! Like walking by the climbing gym, if one were here.

Eat more salad than you think is good for you and go have a fun night tossing pies with the wife! It's more fun than is good for you, too, I bet.

Chocolate mousse sounds appealing, too. LOL

hey there, say, say, mouse...

mouse...



;)

painting is coming a long nice...
(not as your previous note, on nice)...

:)


say, nice shots, too, of the 'rambling man on mt'...
forgot:
also, nice snow, 'like it up here' seems like
why start rambling, in that case... :))

i love rocks, but today was not so happy with them...
meaning:
those odd rocks in your photo of liz and kids,
i could not paint into their proper 'noteworthy presents'
thus, it presented itself more like a dirt-mound, :(

the dirt mound IS solidify, however, so there is hope...
:)


everything else equals:

Wow, two Chico posts in a week! Great to hear from TT of the Feather River Country.

There is a prize going out tomorrow with your name on it. Well, not exactly, but you'll see.

It's not a well-corroborated story, you can understand.

One day, around the beginning, God pondered how to do rocks.

He said something and something happened and the problem solved itself.


It took a few bilion years, but it came out fine. Except the choss.

Some of which is present in the photo. Paint choss the colour it seems. That stuff on the Feather is not exactly the iron shade of the rest of the north country, that ever-present red. It's dirty yellow and chunky. That may be just a slide, or maybe a roadcut. And it's choss, so blunder through it if you need to.

neebee, treebee, rockee

Rock ye on...

edit: I recommend the climb of Mr. Yuk at the end of Rock On. A 13 yr-old doing a 14 at Smith Rocks. Sport climbing, but hey...

You know I hate to climb on snow (except on rambles it's OK cuz you don't need crampons and an ax, big hassles for yours truly, who prefers minimal gear to slow you down.

This really shows me how much ice there is to avoid. That's what it shows me. It's a very colourful map, too.

It's Friday out there. It's safe as milk in The Flames, though. We got stuff to cure all y'all's ills.

It's Lent. Suffer.
late 14c., short for Lenten (n.) "forty days before Easter" (early 12c.), from Old English lencten "springtime, spring," the season, also "the fast of Lent," from West Germanic *langa-tinaz "long-days" (cf. Old Saxon lentin, Middle Dutch lenten, Old High German lengizin manoth), from *lanngaz (root of Old English lang "long;" see long (adj.)) + *tina-, a root meaning "day" (cf. Gothic sin-teins "daily"), cognate with Old Church Slavonic dini, Lithuanian diena, Latin dies "day" (see diurnal).

the compound probably refers to the increasing daylight. Cf. similar form evolution in Dutch lente (Middle Dutch lentin), German Lenz (Old High German lengizin) "spring." Church sense of "period between Ash Wednesday and Easter" is peculiar to English.

Fast during "slow." Good one.

I never heard of these bloaks. Will Hands? But it's Brown, so it may be a relation. Brown-eyed handsome men, eh?

Never push. Shove it, but never push.--Bo Jangles

neebee, here's a video for you. Don is speaking of imbalance caused by sinuses being out-of-whack, like what you were talking about on another old thread, so you may want to try to watch this one if possible.

Oh, and anyone else who's like Blakey.

Brit-lore to the core!

I thought about Hite Cove and poppies and a ride there on the YARTS, then looked at the skies.
Think I'll hang here today.
