Because he had to….

Old man biker | Biker birthday, Biker quotes, Riding motorcycle

An 80 year old man went to the doctor for a check-up and the doctor was amazed at what good shape the guy was in. The doctor asked, “To what do you attribute your good health?”

The old timer said, “I’m a biker and that’s why I’m in such good shape. I’m up well before daylight on Sundays and out sliding around corners, “shootin” sand washes and riding up and down the steepest, wildest mountains I can find at the crack of dawn.”

The doctor said, “Well, I’m sure that helps, but there’s got to be more to it. How old was your dad when he died?” The old biker said, “Who said my dad’s dead?”

The doctor said, “You mean you’re 80 years old and your dad’s still alive? How old is he?”

The old biker said, “He’s 99 years old and, in fact, he went riding with me this Sunday, and that’s why he’s still alive… he’s a biker too.”

The doctor said, “Well, that’s great, but I’m sure there’s more to it. How about your dad’s dad? How old was he when he died?”

The old biker said, “Who said my grandpa’s dead?”

The doctor said, “You mean you’re 80 years old and your grandfather’s still living! How old is he?”

The old biker replied, “He’s 117 years old.”

The doctor was getting frustrated at this point and said, “I guess he went riding with you this Sunday too?”

The old timer said, “No… Grandpa couldn’t go this week because he got married.”

The Doctor said in amazement, “Got married!! Good Lord!!! Why would a 117-year-old guy want to get married?”

To this, the old biker smiled and answered,
“Who said he wanted to?”




It will be nice if this day isn’t mentioned.   American restaurants and bars promoted it to sell more liquor.


The Editor:  Is that your title, one word, LL ?

Uno Cat:  It is for today.  I don’t trust any banks, people, bureaus, institutions, and especially government agencies of any kind.  They have to earn it.  In God I trust.  Here is good ole Harvard University saying that parents should not home school their children.  What a bunch of  self-righteous  dung beetles.

They want to brainwash your children, to instill their non-religion and non-values in them.  It starts in preschool.

Don’t trust your landlord.

I trust Joe.

Here is a big race in Lock-Down-Land.  Trust the winner to not have a thruple.

I trust the Washington Post, owned by Bezos and Amazon,  to lie.  Break up the monopoly.

Doug Collins is looking good in Georgia, USA.

You can trust Susan.

Susan is still asleep from her Obama service as National Security Advisor and UN Ambassador.  An indictment from the Durham investigation might wake her up.

Good Stuff

Only those who risk going too far will ever know how far they can go.

There is no such thing in anyone’s life as an unimportant day.

A smile is contagious; be a carrier.

Hate is like acid. It can damage the vessel in which it is stored as well as destroy the object on which it is poured.

The best thing to do behind a friend’s back is pat it.

It is easier to go down a hill than up, but the view is from the top.

There are two types of people…those who come into a room and say, “Well, here I am,” and those who come in and say, “Ah, there you are.”

Earth Flyby of BepiColombo

Explanation: What it would look like to approach planet Earth? Such an event was recorded visually in great detail by ESA‘s and JAXA‘s robotic BepiColombo spacecraft last month as it swung back past Earth on its journey in to the planet Mercury. Earth can be seen rotating on approach as it comes out from behind the spacecraft’s high-gain antenna in this nearly 10-hour time-lapse video. The Earth is so bright that no background stars are visible. Launched in 2018, the robotic BepiColombo used the gravity of Earth to adjust its course, the first of nine planetary flybys over the next seven years — but the only one involving Earth. Scheduled to enter orbit in 2025, BepiColombo will take images and data of the surface and magnetic field of Mercury in an effort to better understand the early evolution of our Solar System and its innermost planet.
