Ha! Am I? Risk taker. Yeah, I think you may be somewhat correct. I don’t generally view the way I live as risky except maybe when I smoked. Talk about risk, yes? Generally I’m not too afraid to venture out and live for sure. And I do want another motorcycle but will probably forgo that and put the money into travel instead. Soon as we can again.

Well Tiny...this darn finger is already infected! So lancing it myself would be no big deal and probably make it feel a lot better. It is likely throbbing from Pus building up in there. No, I wouldn’t ask Pat, or probably even tell him I was gonna. So funny to see the big dudes. The bigger they are the harder they fall for sure! 
Sitting in the parking lot waiting for meds. Went through the drive through but it wasn’t ready yet. Then to crunchy store for chocolate milk and with a little luck some lovely pears!! I desperately need a nap.

Here...found this article while waiting here about the purple ones off Oregon Coast and it has some pics for you... Lots of the ones on Google images appear to photo shopped to me. Not sure why folks do that as they certainly are beautiful in their completely natural appearance. Humans can’t leave stuff alone and just accept things the way they are too often. Including each other! 
Oh just read it while waiting. It mentions the Gooseneck Barnacles and says they are increasing due to lack of adult Starfish to eat them! There you go Tiny. Ocean facts.

I love the article! Too bad about the wasting. Not only that but the barnacles are really off the charts because of it. I like a barnacle as much as the next gal, but I like starfish better. Ooh, I wonder what a barnacle feels like?!?! My husband promised to take me to the ocean next year and I'm pretty jacked.

Lol we are Tribe now?? Sure why not. I will toast to all of you!

Worked today, got in a 40 minute workout, mowed lawn, did dishes......,relaxing time. My drink of choice to toast my tribe is Bluepoint Oktoberfest! Not bad. Fitting for 1st day of fall.

Hugs Ladies!

Well, yes, we are! How can we not be?? I think it was Peggy that told me I had my Tribe here. It may have been in a PM. But...Peggy would not lie to me Eve, so yes! We are a Tribe! We may get a little sick combining that brew and my chocolate milk, Peggy’s Tart Cherry Kombucha, Susan likely has a nice fine wine, and Tiny...I’m gonna guess Tiny has a nice steaming cup of tea to toast with. I seriously doubt she has something gross like a pumpkin spice latte, though no offense meant to anyone who indulges in that blasphemy of a good coffee! Haha!

You’ve had a full and productive day! Yay! Not me. But I’m awake now again and suspect the next several hours I will get things accomplished. Gonna start off with a walk now. Had a short one this morning. Now I am gonna go out with my “bird flipping” finger bandaged up and wave hi to folks! Lol!

Man I wish we could add more people to the cc. I left out Susan, sorry! No, i do not have pumpkin coffee. Don't generally touch coffee. I've been drinking mint tea from the republic of tea. They make some pretty good stuff. Soothes the stomach and the soul, I say. I cheated and didn't buy it loose leaf. Ok, fine we are a tribe. But no funny business. I demand video and book recommendations. And recipes. And pictures of ocean animals.

Haha! No funny business? Oh, why not? A little thievery and pillaging perhaps instead?? Hmmm. Maybe! Haha! Well, maybe just pillaging. Can’t bring myself to stealing. Tiny...have you been over to the games? These girlz are misbehaving again over there and corrupting me. Lol! Got me all flustered. We all know I just think about shiny happy people all around yes? (Acknowledgement to R.E.M.) Didn’t want to steal their line. See? Not good at stealing! 
Eve! You are afraid of the water? Oh dear. That’s not good. Do you have rabies??? 
Not sure how but I think I got you all on this one?

OK Tiny. I will send my Pickled Onions recipe and tell you how to make Kombucha. Or my Tuna sandwich is pretty good too! Eve, how the heck you make a Grilled Cheese with no pan? Please don’t say microwave as Daughter tried to teach Pat that one some time ago and it was a disastrous goopy mess! 
Book I’m reading now, the one you might like is “The Great Offshore Grounds” by Vanessa Veselka. A PDX author! Pretty good so far. The other non fiction stuff I read you may like, maybe not. 
Videos: My Big Fat Greek Wedding! Oh...swoon over that John Corbett guy for sure. It’s the height ladies. Tall gets me going. 
Pictures: A pus filled finger do it for you Tiny? Oh wait...you said Ocean animals. 
Wait...are thievery and pillaging the same thing?? I gotta look that up.

OK...just did. No pillaging either as it means to rob using violence. Not doing that either so Tiny we are back to funny business unless you got some other options...?

I see that you're feeling frisky and man crazy. You little she-devil. I'm always interested in any recipe I can find. I've rarely found a recipe that wasn't worth trying. So ante up, ladies! I'm going to check out that book. I never turn away books but I don't love books about war. We have free little libraries here. People put up these oversized bird houses (in their yard) and fill them with books. You take one and leave one. It's a cool idea and there are a few nearby. I really should put one up and fill it with my mr. Rogers book collection. Spread the word kindness around. I'm sure the 90 year old neighbors would appreciate it, if I had large print, anyway. Maybe I could put out audio books. My neighborhood is all people 70 and up. When we were moving in, the neighbors came over to introduce themselves and asked where our parents were. What a world. I refuse to suggest funny business for you to partake in. Although when I was a kid I did squirt half a bottle of dish soap in the very bottom of my brothers bed. He got in that night to get cozy and was met with floral sludge on his tootsies. I was dating a guy that was horrible so I put forks in between the couch cushions, tines up. He sat twice and was grabbing his tenders and squealing. What a jerk.
