I can finally quit whining
...which should make the Spouse Thingy happy...
This weekend while the Spouse Thingy sleeps I'll toot around the neighborhood, getting acquainted with my spiffy new toy--it's not exactly like riding a motorcycle, there are a few things I need to get used to--and maybe next week we can finally take a long ride.
He's now 99.9% off the hook for my birthday. ;)
