Roll me out the door.............

My lovely wife had gift certificates to OutBack Steakhouse and treated for dinner last night.

I kinda felt like the Outback Blimp by the time I was done eating and I know our kids and Janet did as well. I've never eaten there before and I was really impressed by the quality of the food, the serving sizes are freakin' ENORMOUS.

I had a small steak and was the only person to even come close to eating their whole dinner. The rest of the family has enough food to eat for the remainder of the weekend. One thing-the place ain't cheap. 4 dinners, 2 appetizers, 4 non-alcoholic drinks+tip just about smoked the 100 dollar gift cert my wife had. How anybody could possibly eat dessert, I'm not sure...................

Are they making teenagers taller nowadays? I met the 14 year old daughter of a co-worker last night and positively stunned to find out she was only 14. She could have easily passed for 18 or 19............maybe I'm just getting old.

I just bought this camera, a mini tripod, a 256 meg memory card, a 4 battery (includes 4 batteries) charger and a carry case for about the same price just the camera alone cost to buy in a retail store. Smokin' deal. I like the camera because it's tiny, easily fits in the palm of your hand and has a huge 2.5 inch LCD screen. It's my Father's Day-Birthday-Christmas present.

This guy is really turning out to be a jackass. I already have to wait until I turn 67 to get full benefits, what else can this boob screw up? Let's get the troops the hell out of harm's way in Iraq before we screw up more stuff.

Remember "Err on the side of life" ? I don't think Shrub is gettin' the big picture. If you are a G.W. fan-that's cool, I just feel he could be doing a better job without a lot of effort on his part.

Holy crap-something like 80 people a day read my blog.

I'm not that funny. I am an asshole from time to time though.

Had an interesting discussion with a co-worker...........If you could travel back or ahaed in time, where and when would you go? Me? I'd travel ahead to the next huge Powerball drawing and get the numbers. Done deal.

The "What the hell does this link have to do with anything?" link.............pretty smart dude, wouldn't ya say?

If you can't find nifty computer wallpaper or learn something on this site, really need to get out more.

This site is fun as long as you use the "play money" option. I don't have enough balls (or money) to use real money.

Break her legs and let her keep the damn trophy.

Till later.

I just found you blog via 'gas is for sissies' via my sons blob 'sparrowsfall' . 58, too old to get back into biking, use to though. I found your question interesteing about going back or going forward. My husband and I always said that we would never want to be young again. So I guess I would have to speed forward. My husband died in December and while wanting to go back to our perfect life, 'you can't go home again'. So I guess I would speed ahead to my death. Now isn't that a downer for such a cool run site as yours. But then you only gave me two choices. Somwhere out there is the middle part. That would be my choice. Ride on!

58 ????

That's not too old to ride a bike:-)

It's just starting to get to the nice part of the year for riding. I don't know where you live, but if there is a decent bike shop around-heck, a garden variety "rail trail" type of bike is only a couple hundred bucks.

If ya ride 1/2 an hour a day- it's good therapy..............ride right down the "middle part"
