I rode down to Home Depot and got a socket set and a tape measure. Then swung by Big Apple Bagels and got a half dozen bagels and some shmears. Then wandered over to G.I. Joes and got a lock for the scooter.
In the process I got up to 50mph and it back obvious I need to tighten the left mirror as by the time I got to Home Depot all I could see is my chest in it. I'll get that tightened and head back down to Home Depot tomorrow with the old blade and come back with a new one and a small sledge hammer.
So, with Emily moving out, I'm shopping the rescue shelters to find a dog. I want a young female that is a medium to large breed. And preferable a breed with a laid back personality. All they have, that are young, female, and medium to large are border collies and a doberman pincher. Border collies are very smart and tend to need a lot of training and attention and are not laid back. And I don't know anyone who has had a doberman pincher, but I've known a number of people who have been attacked by them, so I don't think I want one of those. The search continues.
