Happened to make a comment to the Gremlinette that she was 'filling out in the face a little'.

Making this comment to a pre-menstrual teenage girl is, apparently, not the best of ideas if you want to avoid tears and being in the 'Dad Dog-House'..... :think:

That is serious lapse of judgement. In my house, with my sixteen year old hormally charged daughter, it is better to just douse myself in petrol and set myself alight. In the long run it is less painful, less damage to both her esteem and so on and my wife would just feed me through a mincer with no anaesthetic any how....

oooohhh. I cringed reading that.

Back on track, I took wife to work, then collected my ordination friend to take her to the station for her retreat (ordained on Saturday in Southwark Cathedral) then back home to take daugher to college and then back to strip, clean and regrease the lower dogbone suspension bits. This afternoon is take cassock to the seamstress for a slight adjustment to the hem, and then collect wife and take her and daughter to town, then I go and do evening prayer and funeral preparations with a family. Evening sees me take bike out to meet my Spiritual director for the first time face to face in six months. A long day, but a good one.

Took the dB killers out the ZH2's Akrapovic, that was a bit of a mission to get to them and required a manly rivet gun to redo the stainless rivets.

Then it was the "easy" job of fitting the crash bungs. Apart from the springy steel frame moving slightly as the first bolt came out resulting in a block and frame misalignment.....happy days. Sorted out by putting a trolley jack under the engine and a block of wood under the gene cover and then pulling down on the bar which allowed everything to line up and the bolt to go in without chewing the thread in the block. The three other bolts were all fine.

Still, all done now and sounding great, pleasant burble on tick over (as in noisy but not like a Lancaster bomber was landing on your house which the pipes on the KTM sounded like).

Today Ihave enjoyed being at home again after discharge from hospital having a plate put in my left forearm. The original cast was not holding the bones in place so they upped the treatment to surgery. It was, I'm told, more complex than expected but still went ell. No matter that though, it is many times more painful after the surgery than the original fracture was so am well stocked with pain relief for it.
Being a keen cyclist I asked what the plate was made of? Stainless steel of course, and they laughed at me when I said that I had hoped for a titanium plate to be stronger and lighter! Every gram counts when racing!! They thought I was joking!! :silent: Never mind, as long as it holds it together for long enough it will do!
At least I didn't ask for carbon fibre! :roll:

Hi Weeksy. As you know I sustained the severe head injury in 2012 and was warned about delayed effects. Well, in short, we think I blacked out at home because I somehow broke my left forearm and bruised my backside, probably from landing! I have no recollection of what happened an my wife was out. When she got home, saw my pain my swollen and deformed arm, the nurse in her took over and took me off to A & E.XS rays showed the fracture I had a cast for 12 days but at my check-up the bone-ends at the fracture site were distracting, meaning moving apart so they changed their plan to inserting a plate which they did last Sunday. I am off to my post-op check this minute so back later!
Cheers.

Hello again mate! The doctor was quite happy with how my arm looks but the wound has come open a bit which poses a major risk of infection at the site of the plate. They closed the hole as best as they could but it isn't pretty!! I have a new cast and will be checked again in 7 days. It still sodding well hurts a lot!! I cannot even train on my turbo for the time being so am very frustrated about my bike! :| Is it a winter rest period ? I'll catch up later I expect!
Cheers...

I'm lucky in the fact I can actually ride both indoors and out. Not brilliantly but ok enough on the road.

However I'm 3 weeks in tomorrow, 2 weeks with new plaster and I'm losing my shit. I can't see me making the distance. I'll happily brace it, but every now and again I just want a decent wash, a relax, I dunno, just some fresh air on it

Driving down the hill to LAX with a quick side trip to VNY, then back up the hill.

Those who can set that knowledge into motion in the physical world are rarer still.

The few who possess real knowledge and can set it into motion of their own hands are the rarest of all.
