Does look like easterly flow for the next week. However, as the ULL departs the winds become weak and the strong diurnal heating of late May finally overcomes the bleh airmass and we warm into the 70s and some 80s here and there

Yes it can. But only after it's weakened ass gives my dry yard at least some respectable rain. Otherwise it can GTFOH right now.

So my mom had a double mastectomy +  new breast reconstruction surgery earlier today. Amazed that's even possible in one go.

I stopped by on my way home to see how she was doing, and she is feeding her dogs (she has 10 of them). My dad was helping, but i was like, wtf are you doing? You just had major surgery and you are 73!  It really is incredible what can be done today with advances in medicine and technology. To her credit, she is in incredible shape,  eats correctly and exercises to a fault, like her son. I have her to thank for instilling those attributes in me.

Was looking forward to this one, brewed with graham crackers, lactose, marshmallows, vanilla and spices. Unfortunately it doesn’t live up. Certainly drinkable but not thick enough of a mouthfeel and I don’t taste the spices that would make it pie like. Basically just a cherry sour at 7.2%

On to the darker stuff. We All Float, a root beer and vanilla float dessert beer from RAR at 9%. I’m not a root beer person, but I can still swing this

Yes... but I still don't see any sustained 80s for the next 7 to 10 days... which i guess is good

Enjoying a milkshake IPA from fourscore brewery (Gettysburg). It’s a 7.5% passion fruit, mango , with a hint of vanilla.   Very smooth

Yes sir....Original and I have the original box to. But I'm a believer in keeping it out for viewing.  Kind of like having a awesome collector car but never driving it. I say unleash the beast lol.  The original 3 Star Wars movies are bar none the best movies imo ever made :thumbsup: and I was lucky enough to see Return of the Jedi in the theater as a kid  when it came out .

I remember we talked before you saw the last one. Empire is by far the best and the other originals beat anything since but after viewing the last one again with my son on Disney+ still don’t get the hate. It might not be exactly how I would have done things but it’s entertaining enough if you just watch it as an action movie and don’t bring in the “how you wanted it to end” stuff. It’s not the hard to watch mess some of the prequels were imo.

I assume your talking about "Rise of Skywalker" and I agree it was very good.  The Force Awakens was a step above and Last Jedi a step below imo. How'd your boy like it ?

I thought Rogue one was also pretty decent.

Rogue One was excellent... I really hope they make one with Obi-Wan.  Solo was pretty good to IMO

My siblings and I played with one of those when I was a kid (the Falcon, not the beer); it's probably still in the parents' basement, but not in that pristine condition.

My family actually makes fun of me for my hatred of Empire Strikes Back.  Of course, I haven't seen a Star Wars movie since I endured whatever #2 was named and after that I threw in the towel.

Yep went through something similar myself. Had a lumpectomy and reduction all in one go. Had to do it that way really as after radiation no breast surgeon would touch the radiated side. Glad to here you mom is strong and got through it. And hoping for a speedy recovery.

Wow, will say a prayer for her.  Amazing to hear how active she is right after the surgery.  Hopefully she has a fast recovery.

Your mother is an amazing person. Your mom is able to create, use and internalize her own positive energy. May I ask how long your parents have been married? When you take stock of yourself I’m sure you are thankful for their successful recipe. May their partnership set a record for longevity. As always ....

Glad she is doing ok and recovering well.

My mom had a single mastectomy back in the 90s.  And I'm thankful to this day she has beaten cancer for almost 30 years since she had the operation.
