Wouldn't it be less of a hassle to just use a bike pump?

Well you can teach an old dog new tricks. I got tired of the air pressure light on and no time to swing by QT again. So I used cheapo hand pump. All systems go

it is just topping it off. And 32-33 PSi is less than bike tires so it was an easy fix. Actually easier because carrying a pump around to all the tires is better than trying to drag that hose, and then hit reset button a few times.

Not sure why I didnt think of this before. I assumed old guys know best. But in actuality old guys probably just want an excuse to feel important getting out of the house...maybe meet their oxycontin dealer etc.

FWIW I really can't stand old guy lazy ass devices that are overkill for tasks at hand. Tool time Tim crap.

Marginal gains in productivity at best, with trade off for cost and noise. like leaf blowers for a normal sized yard. what, you save 5 minutes over a rake? And mitre saw. My f-in-law is dumbfounded that I used handsaw and mitre box to put up molding. How hard is it to cut thru half inch of wood.? Or hookers with viagra and ambien -why old guys why?

60 Minutes is now a must watch for me. The sound of the ticking watch used to make me rush for the remote.

Yeah, mixed blessing, amiright??

Mrs Rad gets hers right away. I did something called "file and suspend". Which means I defer mine (and let it continue to grow). In the interim, I get half of hers.

So we get 150% of her benefit until I flip the switch on mine. Nice bump for us since I'm working for the rest of the year. The best part was it took less than 48 hrs for the first payment to get deposited.

I've stopped saying "who knows if that'll be around when I retire".....I don't think anything's a lock, but it's a sign that I am getting older

Some guy named Kurt Cobain died 25 years ago. Seems like a sign that I'm getting old.
