The String Cheese Incident

Outside Inside 2001


I am so not going to bore you with the time is flying factor. It IS March and the MADness is just around the corner. 

Been heading out early when the ground is still frozen and the atmosphere is peaceful. Pretty much mud season around here these days. The kind of soft mud were dogs would love splattering their paw prints in it. Sure wish Mother Nature would kindly dump about 5 feet of wet heavy snow here over the next few days. Think Snow


The 'Just Wait 5 Minutes' saying around here in Colorado came true the other day. I headed west on the Ol GT and I wouldn't say that I was cold but definitely not warm. Within a few miles of care-free riding, the wind picked up. Then, I was kind of cold. Tolerable but chilly. Comfortable Enough 

Dark clouds casually rolled over the Colorado National Monument while caressing the individual slot canyon walls. The howling wind emanates directly from the west into my exposed face. Next thing I knew, Mr Sun was out again, headwind was even stronger. Still rolling west, I tucked into the tightest TT position I could wiggle myself into as I plunge my way on. Felt stellar to burn the quads while my screaming gastrocnemius pounded down on them pedals. Snow flakes began falling again and take refuge on the sleeves of my flannel. Finally talked myself into 'This Is The Perfect Turn Around Location'. The darker ominous clouds blocked away all sun's solar rays as I succumbed to defeat while turning around with my tail between my legs. 

And here comes the real snow!! A sideways blowing snow storm rapidly engulfed the landscape. The wind fluctuated between a tailwind, Willy Wonka upways, noseways, and a sideways blast of freezing temperatures. Between the weather and wind, couldn't hear my own thoughts. Just as I was questioning my own judgment, the sun breaks out once again. That tailwind was fierce still. Mother Nature happily pushed me all the way and my flannel was considerably soaked at this point of the adventure. I was cold but a headwind would have been disastrous. So lucky to be riding with the wind!! If you don't like the Colorado weather, just wait 5 minutes. 


A client mentioned this book and then brought it on in during our last session. Will begin reading shortly. Have You 

Have you ever worked with plaster walls before?? I have obviously patched holes in drywall and scarped popcorn ceilings but plaster walls will be a first. I am committed to a job where there is a hole in the back of a closet in room 1 that opens into the 2nd bedroom. The front door knob also punched a hole into the wall there as well. Will shoot some photos as I go, wish me luck. Plaster On 

Meeting with the Realtor this Saturday and rather excited about this place. Will gaily post photos during the walk through and keep ya all posted. Fingers Crossed 


The Ortho world has been on fire. Landing this new location has completely changed my format. Not sharing the office space with three other gals has allowed me to be available at a drop of a hat. I'm working bankers hours, evenings, and weekends. Whatever & Whenever 

I rode over to the gym after a day in the office and was quickly reminded why I am gradually building my practice again. Someone left this for me as I am the last man standing when it comes to wearing my mask at the gym. I am waiting for the Trump Lovin Phuc to ask me if I got the cartoon. I don't need to ask around because they wont be able to control themselves here in a week or two. Like the Joke "How Do You Know If Someone Is Vegan?" Just wait and they will tell ya all about it. 

I am in the process of ordering an advertisement banner for the office. The graphic designer fabricated a little prototype placard with my logo and told me they ran a few stickers just because. In my mind, was thinking a few little cheesy suckers. They totally knocked me out with a bunch of little black ones and white ones. A stack of larger white, black, and red ones on the good quality vinyl were also in my goodie bag. Like Top Shelf Stickers 

February was full of Karma Coupons and goal reaching achievements. I weighed in at 202 pounds / 91 kilograms on Feb 1st 2023. Set a targeted goal of 190 by the end of the month. Well, didn't reach that goal but dropping the 10 pounds was pretty sweet. I stepped on the scale March 1st to witness this 193 pound / 87 kilos. The 180's is just around the corner and 170's by Summer sound be within range. Right 


Those high Cirrus Clouds began rolling in those first few nights of stargazing and the dance between Venus & Jupiter. Started feeling a little dubious that I might miss the conjunction or the kissing if you will. But the last few nights created ideal viewing conditions and I fell in love. Jupiter, Venus, and that happy Moon were all right there in alinement. And last night's Full Moon ( Worm MOON ) brightened my whole evening. Pun Intended  

Hopefully you all were peering towards the west just after sundown to observe the pirouette between those celestial bodies spinning about. They were a sight to see and check out these photos from CJ. Keep Looking Up 


Over the winter break, along with other chores, the YouTube algorithm flooded me with disc golfing videos. One guy in particular described exactly my form to a T and how that is the worst way to throw a disc. Clueless I Am 

The above photo is the result from my tee off drive. My old mechanics of throwing positioned my right elbow tucking into my right hip as I released my disc. This guy goes on to elaborate arm movement, elbow accuracy, and hip rotation. All off which I was doing completely wrong. Now I have only played three times this year with my new found driving angles and overall proprioception while on the tee pad. 

I am driving the disc like a mad man. Have always driven the disc like a discombobulated wild man but now it's a whole new ballgame. Definitely takes concentration but my elbow is parallel to the ground and my hips are isync with my feet and I have added about 20 yards / 18 meters to my drives. Hopefully my release point and grip will all merry together at some point this year. 

I focused on putting last year and that paid off dramatically. Started throwing with a Swan and retired my original early 90's Birdie Putter. The above photo showcases my distance putt that found the proper line I was envisioning and drilled the basket for another satisfying birdie toss. Just as I released the putter, called out to The Dude mid-flight that "I Think It's Going In!!" Below are photos of my blue disc in the basket.  

Stuck That Sucker Good. The Dude has been quite impressed with my play this year. We are both shocked by the distance gained with my driver disc and my putts are almost unreal. I'm not getting big headed here by any means. It is just that I have played disc golf for decades and I am just now learning how to play the game. Stoked 


It is all in the timing and delivery. Like WoW

I leave you all with a promotional video I created for The Dude. Please leave a comment with your honest opinions. I am seeking true feedback for building stronger shorts. Might have another part time gig creating these for the Realtor. Maybe?!?! I say maybe because these videos demand attention to details and loads of freaking time. Would rather be riding my bike but the cash flow would be a bonus. Always up for refreshing revenue sources and exciting unknown challenges. 


Stay Strong,
