    Since I retired, I've largely replaced that one with similar ones about work.

    Same with me - strangely enough they seem more common the longer I have been retired.

    Simon and I have started spending the time we wait for his bus learning about things--we'll take something we see at his bus stop, and I'll teach him what I know about it. This morning, we were talking about speed limits. I told him that the speed limit on our block is 25 miles an hour, because we live in a residential area and there are expected to be a lot of people around. I told him there was one place that had a lower speed limit, somewhere with a lot of people who might not be as careful as they should be with cars. Could he guess where that was? He thought a minute and said, "California?"

    Mrs Extravoice found a T-shirt as a Christmas gift for our daughter, the speech pathologist.

    The shirt says "Keep talking, I'm diagnosing you."

    The Seahawks are on Monday Night Football, wearing their green PJ's. Worst uniforms in history, I'm going to root for the Vikings.

    On my morning bike ride today I went down a bike path a suburb over. Alongside a big park the local council was repairing damage caused by gum tree roots lifting up the bitumen. It was like being on a major road during roadworks. There were three council utes parked on the path with flashing hazard lights, about 4 workers digging up and resealing the path. Plus two people holding signs to stop "traffic" at either end of the work-site, communicating with each other by 2-way radio. I felt quite important as they waved me through and we all wished each other G'day.

    Then about another km down the path there was a police 4-wheel drive parked on the bike path. Two policemen plus the possible owner were examining what looked to be a stolen, damaged & dumped off-road motorbike on the side of the path. To finish off I went another 500 metres and two women were out with a young child, her small bike and a dog. Naturally enough they had all became tangled up and blocked the path. Luckily I ride so slowly that there were no problems for me.It was all a bit of fun during my ride.
