    I bought this the other day. I didn't know it was coming out and honestly wish he hadn't written a sequel. I don't know how he could have improved on one of the best books I've read in the last 5 years or so. But I bought it anyway. Started reading it last night and so far? I'm not impressed. I'll finish it and maybe it will get better. But I'm not holding out a lot of hope. The first one ended perfectly. That's where it should have stopped.

    Anyone have Jerry’s phone number at BAMF?

    I found a 4 runner for my chic and she wants rock sliders. Nice thing about being the alpha in the relationship is I get to build it for her. Christmas is coming.:cool:

    Had my car for over 2 and a half years and just now hit 12,000 miles. Obviously I don't drive much since everything I need is within a few miles from my house.

    I was about to ask why a Tacoma is riding on all season tires, then realize its a 2wd prerunner. In other news, may as well pack a spare mask in my wallet as I can't go into any local stores w/o a mask now. On my walk into work, noticed I forgot a mask, and the masks that were at work I took home to wash. (Sigh) have disposable PPE here at work that will suffice.

    I actually found a mask that I like (well... as much as you can actually like a mask). If I have to go to the Dr. I'll always wear an N95. But for going to the store or having to go to football games for my daughter I've been wearing these. They are comfortable, have 4 layers of protection (assuming you use the charcoal inserts), fit perfectly (I'll only wear a mask that has a metal band at the top to form fit around my nose), they leave no area of your face exposed with any gaps, and relatively cheap.

    I'll just be happy when we can officially burn these but until then, these are the best ones I've found.

    There is no place we can go here without wearing a mask. If you are going to be inside of any business you have to wear one. Otherwise they will not let you in. I'm all for that. They will not let us into the games that my daughter has to be at and they are only selling a limited number of tickets to the game. Luckily they are all outside so I don't feel too bad about going. Plus everyone has to sit a pretty good distance apart unless you are with your own family unit. At least around here they are being pretty consistent about it which is good. But shit is about to get real in the next couple of months since there were so many that disregarded the guidance of the CDC and traveled during Thanksgiving. In a couple of weeks cases will spike even more than they are now and then we have Christmas coming up which will continue that trend. That will be another spike on an already strained healthcare system. But whatever.... If it only affected those that chose to not follow guidelines I wouldn't care. But it doesn't. It affects innocent people.

    We've had to do it since June if I remember correctly. And not all businesses enforce it regardless of their signage.

    Same here. But they do inforce it here. I've seen people turned away at Kroger for not wearing a mask and it's usually a pretty shitty scene when that happens. It almost always boils down to "personal freedom" bullshit. But I have no use for people like that. It isn't infringing on my rights to have to wear a mask during these times. None of us seem to have an issue with a sign that clearly states at restaurants "no shirt, no shoes, no service". But some people have an issue with wearing something that could actually keep you and the people you come in contact with from getting sick???? I just don't get it??? I'm a dick but I have absolutely no use for people like that. Masks allow for businesses to remain open and also allow some semblance of normalcy of getting out of your house and doing semi normal things.

    I'll be the first to say I FUCKING HATE WEARING THEM! But I'm going to wear one not only for me but my fellow man. For those that can't follow that simple courtesy? I have no use for them.

    I went to bed last night with my AirPods in listening to music. I'm usually good about taking them out before I fall asleep but last night I didn't. Woke up this morning and... Bear chewed one of them up. Not his fault. My dumb ass fault for falling asleep with them still in my ears. One was under my pillow when I woke up and the other was laying on the bed and he decided it would make a good chew toy. Lesson learned I suppose? Time for another set. Hopefully I'll be a little more careful.
