I’ve just phoned the bike shop I ordered my bike from a couple of months ago.
The guy on the other end took 5 minutes to come back to the phone with information, he told me my bike isn’t even in the shop, but last week I was told it was definitely being delivered to the shop on the 17th which was yesterday.
Disappointment has kicked in. I Feel miserable. :(

I hereby decree that Mr. Roy Batty shall treat himself to one hour in the best workout place in his neighborhood on a stationery bike to keep his legs in shape while those who withheld his bike get their act together and fix the bike and deliver it to Mr. Batty's front door forthwith or have their online complaint box messages quadruple every day for 10 days! :biggrin:

It's been a while since I dropped in here, been meaning to, but I apologize for the hiatus.

Too much life going on right now.

On a good note, we have paid off a $10,000 credit card and are on our last installment of a payday loan this month. I am happily able to announce that I will be paying part of, if not all, of the mortgage payments going forward. I did some awful things with my grandmother's money a few years back and now I am single-handedly digging us out of the debt I incurred.

I am proud of myself for turning over a new leaf and redeeming myself to my grandmother. Also, I can look at her and tell she is. The look on her face says it all.

But I didn't come here to write an essay, I hope you are all doing well in this hellish year thus far.

That suit of Templar armor is collecting dust in the corner, time for me to take it for a spin! Hot apple cider with a pinch of ginger, please!

Welcome back, Mr. Templar.

Congratulations on the gracious reconciliation with your grandmother. :thanks:

What Beautress said. Hombre (Mr. Foxfyre) doesn't bend well anymore and sometimes getting up and down becomes very difficult for him. So he ordered one of those benches that lets you work on things closer to the ground and then get up again. That was months ago and it never came. They kept his money of course. Lesson learned--don't order stuff you see on Facebook or other sites you don't know whether you can trust. And it was a reminder that there are three kinds of people: Those who are competent, those who aren't, and those who simply don't care and/or will cheat you.

Welcome back TK and it's good to hear a success story of almost any sort these days. Glad things are looking up for you. We'll feel much safer with Templar back on guard duty.

I’ve been incapacitated all day, stayed in my pyjamas and let the wife look after me. I’ve pulled a something in my shoulder and neck and it hurts, yes I’m bad tempered and crabby with it.

I would be crabby too.

Compressed a disk in my lower back last summer and it laid me up for a week....Couldn't even stand up the first day.

I'd see a chiropractor pronto.

:( Hope just what over here we refer to as a 'crick' in the neck and it usually goes away after a day or two. I can sure relate though having suffered from 'frozen shoulder syndrome' & three collapsed vertebrae in my back for years now--gets worse sometimes and better sometimes but the pain never completely goes away except when I am entirely still which is rare.

I’ve had it for 2 weeks, it hasn’t got any better, I woke in agony, I’ve given in to it and will rest up the weekend.

I have found that paying with paypal works to weed out the crooks....

Good evening, all. I'm a little disappointed in my love life. I just don't like all the putdowns my fiance does plus, now all his realitives want me to pay them for services other families do for each other. I just can't take it anymore. He takes a special hatredfor my charity quilting. Some chaplain. I dont know what to do. :(
Value yourself. This must happen before others can understand your worth. You are a person of high quality, find someone that is closer to your true level.

Was able to fly my middle daughter and her guy to Detroit from Denver round trip two weeks ago for a total of $141 round trip for both. With the China Bogeyman virus Spirit had cheap flight and we have not seen her in person since last December. My stress levels dropped a lot.

Lacticum acidum from the local health store should reduce that particar pain, down to naught, our dear Mr. Batty. It will so take your dear Mrs. Batty to the relief her beloved is out of his discomfort. I use it when I work out too long. It really helps deal with the physical pain suffered when we overdo getting back in shape. Over here, it is not expensive. It also does not mess with prescriptions you might be taking for other issues.

Thanks, Saveliberty. He lightened up the same day I was venting. I feel a lot better but still have weak knees when those baby blues are smiling on me.
