ok, geez, shit. Now look what I started.

1. I effed up, forgot that CanAYda uses other temperature measurement. Part of that was thinking that it's always cold in Candada and part was kind of wishful thinking.
2. Redfish does not have an American accent. He has a Cajun accent, which is one the rest of us do not share. Redfish has a light Cajun accent but there is ZERO mistaking where Pops is from.

Do you realize we are saying the same thing? Except we dumb Muricans are not insulting your Canadian Comprehension skills.

I will type this S.L.O.W.L.Y.

The high temp for you in Canada was colder than the low temp for Jasen in Texas. It doesn't matter if the difference is 0.0001 Kelvin.

Jeez. Now y'all got me typing sarcasm. Dang it.
It was difficult to comprehend what you were saying because of the murican accent

I just KNEW it was gonna be my fault. :roll:

Sorry, I will try harder next time. :D
Oh...I just like poking fun at our differences ( which ain’t many).

Stop in at my house next week and we’ll drink some good scotch

Bob - regardless of temperature, or units measured therein, I'm glad to read that you are still rollin this time of year. I know you realize that your days this year are numbered.

Jasen, my friend - with all due respect, Redfish most assuredly does NOT have a Cajun accent, and neither does his dad. They both have what we locals would refer to as a classic Louisiana River Parishes Drawl.

Thanks Pants! I was thinking "Wait they don't have a cajun accent! " but that just may be because I live here.

Louisiana accents are pretty interesting though. You can generally tell what region someone is from by the way they talk. Heck sometimes you can even narrow it down to the town they are from just by the way they talk.

But have you heard Mrs. Redfish talk? Once you get past the fingernailsonachalkboard voice, she has a semi-decent little accent. I used to be able to "cajunize" my accent pretty good when I wanted to.

When I used to run fishing charters I had several different out of state clients try to figure out just exactly what sort of accent I had. I would change it up just to keep them guessing.


Back to FJR content, yesterday evening late I washed the OE mufflers pretty good and set them on my tailgate to dry. A friend of mine has an overly loud set of aftermarket pipes on his FJR and needs these to quiet down his next trip. They aren't in perfect shape but they will do for the time being I think.

Boring ride to work. First day back at work and it's excruciating.

I unloaded mine; it's back in the garage. I'm pretty sure it whispered, "do that again, and I won't start next time..."

So rain or shine, we're riding to tech day this weekend...

Left it sit, while I took the little blue bike out. Getting in morning rides is nice, but I have to spread the love around. Sooner or later I'll finish tinkering with the DRZ and take it for a ride.

Mine followed "do that again" with some rather salty language. I gave it a bath and asked:

"Friends again?"

Mine's still on the trailer. Its sulking. Time heals all wounds?

Colours (er.. colors for the illiterates) are starting to change up here, about 30%-40%. It smelled like fall this morning on the way to work. Who thought returning from a long road trip and back to work the next day was a good idea? Even my boss was surprised I am here. I emptied the fridge of perishables before I left only to forget and realize I had not much for breakie this morning. Looks like I"m buying lunch too.

Good trade though :D

Glad you made it back. There was a really nice Canadian couple that sat with us at dinner Friday. You would have loved them. They were very cool to talk with, with their aboots and eh’s. Put maple syrup on their pizza. Said they longed for succotash. I hope they’re at EOM next year so my wife can meet them.

Replaced left side headlight bulb with same type. What a PITA! Smaller hands than mine with a built in light would make this much easier. Although after doing it once, the second time should go smoother.
