Thought we were going to lose my father-in-law over the last week. 80 years old, was not taking care of his CHF and diabetes, seemed ready to check out. They live several states away but got him checked into the hospital, diuresed (peed out water weight) to the tune of 25#, put on a program where he has to email his blood sugars AC/HS (before meals and before bed), daily weights emailed in...he's home now and feeling better than he has in years. Think he's going to be okay for a while now.

Bagel had already been devoured.

This is good news. Glad he's doing better.

I'm happy to have had my Dad over for father's day. Age 96, 97 in October.

 

Shot down in WWII, Year in a german prison camp, sorties in Korea, putting up with me........

 

I've never heard him swear, criticize another person, lie, yell at my mom (though she was a yeller).

 

He always wore HSM and Hickey Freeman suits (the best available in our town) and florsheim shoes. He polished shoes every saturday night. He always looked great and expected us to dress appropriately for every occasion. He taught us to dress in a way that people would treat us the way we should be treated.

 

Thanks Daddy.

Thanks guys, and Piob yes it is a relief to be done planning. I'm at that age where everyone seems to be getting married, so over the past 10 weeks I've travelled to either a wedding or bachelor party. Ours was the last of the bunch, so we have a much calmer summer to look forward to.

Piob, also glad to hear the FIL is doing better.

Wow, removed the grips from my handlebars and found cracks..cracks about 4 inches long on both ends! I've ridden with these bars maybe five rides. Why is this making me happy? Because I'm going fucking huge. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

I had some very good Mexican food (sadly very hard to find here in NYC) in the weirdest of places (located inside a tortilla factory in Bushwick). It was one of the more hipster-y infested places I've recently been to, but it was cheap and tasty, and they had mexican coke along with other mexican sodas to wash it down with. It warms me to know there's a mexican comfort food place on the Jefferson Stop of the L train.

Before we relocated, I had barely any commute, but the wife had a huge one. That being the case, I just drove my old Jeep and she had a small, much newer SUV. Now that we've moved, we sort of split the difference on commuting, so neither of us has an outrageous one, but we both still have a pretty good drive. The problem is that my old Jeep just isn't cut out for it, especially since it's almost entirely highway driving. Plus, it consumes enormous amounts of gas. Now that we've kind of gotten into a routine, we've talked about picking up some little econobox that, owing to the amount of gas we'd save compared to driving the Jeep, wouldn't cost us much per month on the margins, and it would be more comfortable and reliable than a 16-year-old Wrangler. The only problem is that I have no desire to drive an econobox. I just don't like small cars.

So why is this in the "Making You Happy" thread? It turns out that MrsG would love a new little economy car, and she'd be happy to let me start driving her SUV in exchange for a little five-speed somethingorother. On top of that, we've agreed that we'll just keep my Jeep, since it still runs well and would make a fun weekend car. WIN!
