This Kills Me

Abby's Birthday

Here's my blood cousin Judy with Abby on her birthday. Her son Keith is in the middle pic. I don't know when I'll be out Elko way again to see them.

Body Paint And Bikes

I like when naked gals get the body paint, and to toss motorcycles into the mix only makes it better. Grant sent me these.

I Want One

Have A Drink

This Made Me Laugh Out Loud

At the library no less.

Which Wife Am I With?

Or, "What do you want on your hot dog?"

Sandra and I went to the Rivercats game on Sunday. We got there a bit late and had planned on eating expensive hot dogs at the game. We set situated in center field with our lawn chairs and I go to buy a hat and food.
The three dogs and stuff cost $21. The large soda is $5.75! What a racket. (at least at Raley Field you can bring in bottled water. So, I froze three big bottles and we had enough to last the game)
I like mustard on my dogs. I could have sworn that Sandra likes ketchup on hers. I guess I was mistaken as she mentioned that the She Devil and the Ingrate are the ones who like ketchup. (that's Wife 1.0 and 1.5 for those of you without a scorecard) Sandra then asked me if I had forgotten which wife I was with as she likes mustard on her dog.
She ate her ketchup dog but had to bust my balls, just a little bit. I almost called Sandra from the condiment stand to double check, I guess I should have.

Xavier Writes About The Desk

Xavier has a cool post on the President's Desk here. Take a look.

This Is Different

This calendar gives yo one more day to do your taxes.

Ya Think?

Is This Real Or Photoshopped?

This is pretty cool if its real.

This Is Cool

I wonder if A) it runs, and B) how much it weighs.

You Don't See This Everyday

I've been to the strip club a whole three times in my life and I'd say I've never seen a little person on the pole.

What A Life Preserver

This Sort Of Applies To Me

I'm already fat, but am working on it.

Look At The Monkey

He's copping a feel. It must be good to be a monkey.

This Is Impressive

And stupid. I don't think he's even wearing a helmet.

This Kills Me

“My own view on religion is that of Lucretius. I regard it as a disease born of fear and as a source of untold misery to the human race.”
-- Bertrand Russell, "Has Religion Made Useful Contributions to Civilization?" (1930)

Yet More

“If you talk to God, you are praying. If God talks to you, you have schizophrenia.”
-- Thomas Szasz (Internet sources)

I seem to recall Mark asking the She Devil exactly how God spoke to her. He was rather insistant on getting an answer out of her. (nothing I hadn't tried to do) Her reasoning was that "God laid it on my heart." Yeah, whatever that means.

One Of The Greatest Quotes Ever

“I don't believe in God.”
-- Bruce Sterling, interview, Cybersociology Magazine (July 27, 1998), cited by Celebrity Atheists website.

More From The FFRF

“One should not go to church if one wants to breathe pure air.”
-- Friedrich Nietzsche, Beyond Good and Evil, 1886
I think I've posted this one before. If I have, it bears repeating.

From The FFRF

“God is the only being who does not have to exist in order to reign.”
-- Charles Baudelaire
Since I've been away from work, I'm behind in my FFRF reading. So, its time to catch up a bit.

Todd Sent Me This

"Wait a minute now you clowns, I didn't authorize ATTACKS on the Pirates, I authorized 'A TAX' on the Pirates"

What A Raw Deal

Grant sent me this. How can a loving god hate this kid so much? He puts "arse" on the poor kids forhead. Its not like the kid doesn't have enough acne issues to begin with.

Invade Cuba Now

I don't think our President is doing the right thing in Cuba. We shouldn't be mamby-pambying around with the Cubans. We should invade now.

No, not with our military. We tried that silliness once. Our invading army should be led by Ronald Mc Donald and Circus Circus. Let's invade with business and dollars. And cars. Think how unlimited American tourism would help the average Cuban. This is how real change would occur in Cuba. I'm for full diplomatic relations with Cuba now. With no travel restrictions. Now. C'mon Mr President, go for it all now.

Camping At Sandy Beach

Lo and behold, the Rio Vista library has public wifi. So, I'm caught up on the pics. I got my favorite spot at Sandy Beach, site 3. Its not far from the bathrooms and has a lot of trees for shade. I wish they had sewer hookups but $25 a night for water and power isn't too bad on the budget. I'll be here for 8 more days. I have an errand to run in Walnut Creek tomorrow, and am meeting Mark and Larry at the Wednesday day game in Stockton to watch the Ports.
Sandra may come out for a day or two next weekend. There's baseball in Stockton and Sacramento next weekend so if she does we'll have something nice to do.

Reading To My Grandbabies

The grandbabies spent the night last Saturday and here I am reading them a book. Of course I don't always read it the same way every time. The grandbabies are adorable and it was good to spend some time with them.

Riding Off Into The Sunset

And here we are going our separate ways. My ride was about 230 miles and it was a day well spent with my dad and his riding buddies.

My Dad And I

My God, look at that bowling ball in front of me. I had been losing weight, but when its all in the belly, well, look at it. Still, I'm not discouraged.

Last Stop Of The Day

We took off SH-1 in Tomales and rode through the farmland of Marin County. To the west of the ridgeline (and US-101) is almost all dairy and other ag operations. We weren't in a big hurry, which was good, as we saw the CHP running radar along one of the rural roads.
We got onto US-101 to SH-37 and rode to I-680 in Benicia. There's a turnout at Lake Herman Rd and we stopped here for our final stop.
You can see in the top pic that we had a various types of bikes on this ride. Ray V rode a sportbike, his dad Bob V rode a harley. Ken V rode a sports tourer in the Concouous and my dad rode a big standard in the Triumph. And, I rode the trusy scooter. This collection of bikes to ride supports my belief that it doesn't matter what you ride, just that you do ride.

Getting Gas

We stopped at the only gas station around, still in Pt Reyes Station. The car in front and the red car to the left are Alfa Romeo's. I've not seen a car where you needed to pop the trunk to gas up. These two must have been the trip leaders, as we saw at least 25 classic Alfa's between Pt Reyes Station and Tomales. The yellow car to the right is a newer Corvette. There were two of these getting gas at the same time we all were.
