I don't know if you are watching the Olympics or are skiing? Maybe it is all a dream?
Why does my pc ask me if I want to open some string of letters when I hit quote on some of the other threads?
Is something here trying to access my pc? It didn't do it just now but it did on another one.

Jeff - that's a great commercial and the song was spot on...

Judy - lol and hahaha - me downhill - not since sometime in the early 80's. Watching some Olympics is as close as I get these days. Although I do have a ski addict friend.

Not sure about your computer / posting issue. Best advice - if you don't know what it is exit out - do not open. I have not had that issue on iPhone app for iRV2.

Oh My, I just got another campfire!! Musta been post 501. Thanks for the advice, I never open anything unless I asked for it.
My son has discovered skiing this year, He was born and raised here in Colorado but never gave it a thought, until some cycling friends of his, invited him. Now he is outdoors all year. He has 2 teen daughters who don't spend as much energy having fun as he does. Even though he is over 40, I worry more about him now than I did when he was younger. He loves his bikes. He has ridden his bike up to Estes Park, and around reservoirs, over dams where the road is only 2 lanes. I don't get it, but people around here hate to slow down or go around bikes. Scary.

Steve, watching Body fly down the hill was awesome.... Dang I wish I could do that (in my mind only) lol. Sure will be glad when Barb checks in. Every time my phone dings I grab it to see if she posted. Hope her pain isn't too great.

^^^ - that's exactly what prompted my post. 82 mph is too fast for me in a car with seatbelts and surrounded by air bags.... Lol.

I have always been a bigger fan of individual sports over team sports. Surfing, divining, cliff diving, snowboarding, skiing, track and field. You name it. These days so many organized team sports are manned by individual show boats. When a skier celebrates his downhill time he doesn't spike his skis on the ground and dance around shooting his or her finger guns in the air. And that's my take on that. Lol.

Well I always did, but I guess you mean all those other skiers.

I thought you threw them on the fire....

On Edit - let's face it Tim - the only thing going anywhere near 82 mph, either of us and a downhill ski slope is the ambulance taking us to the hospital

Hadn't thought of that, that would be rememberable!
Could use some skis today, nice powdery snow. I've been know to ski some of the local golf courses in my younger years but tend to just get the Polaris Ranger out now a days for local snow fun!

well, my butt has been officially kicked. I don't regret doing both knees, but I am SO sore. I'm sorry I haven't updated y'all, but I thought it wiser to send my IPad home and not risk it growing legs and walking away.

Arlene sprung me at about 2 and I finally made it to bed. Sena was a brat the whole time I was gone, but very glad to see me. Lily couldn't understand why she had to be leashed, but she is fond of walking on me. I'll probably let her stay with Arlene until my staples come out in another 8-9 days.

OK, I have 10 pages os ketsup so I better get to it.

I missed y'all!

Glad to see your on the mend. I know how sore you are. Please do what your PT tells you to do. You won't like it but you won't regret it.
