Less than a mile to:



Depot Pizza, Pizza Hut, Bertucci's, Papa Johns, King's Sub and Pizza, My Brother's Pizza, Spinners Pizza and Sub, Jim;s Original Pizza, Andover Deli & Pizzeria, If I got out to a couple of miles it about doubles the choices.  



The green arrow is my house. The balloons are pizza shops.

how 'bout BBQ?  or a good ol chicken fried steak?

OM45GE - Posted - 07/12/2012:  09:25:45



Oh yeah, plus Chinese, Thai, Japanese, Indian, Mexican, steak houses and more seafood restaurants than you can imagine. That's just in my hometown.



I work in Boston (actually Cambridge, right across the river). AA guy I used to work with and I went out most every Friday. Our only rules were that we had to be able to walk or take the subway and we couldn't repeat restaurants. We kept it up for almost five years before he moved back to Houston.



 

dat - Posted - 07/12/2012:  09:34:40



we would run out pretty quick, about the most abundant around here now is mexican restaurants

OM45GE - Posted - 07/12/2012:  09:47:35



It is one of the things I love about the Boston area. There is an incredible ethnic and cultural diversity.

dat - Posted - 07/12/2012:  10:23:19



I'll bet there are a lot of different people, foods and the way folks do things too huh? approve

OM45GE - Posted - 07/12/2012:  11:12:38



ayup.

DeanT - Posted - 07/12/2012:  11:35:49



Add a pawn shop on every corner, and you have our neighborhood!

OM45GE - Posted - 07/12/2012:  11:41:49



That's one thing we don't have locally for some reason.

DeanT - Posted - 07/12/2012:  11:55:44



Don't forget tattoo parlors and liquor stores. Oh yeah, and the new city eating virus... the check into cash stores

dat - Posted - 07/12/2012:  12:04:38



pawn shop,  liquor store, then tattoo parlor,  marketing would say to put their location close togeather

DeanT - Posted - 07/12/2012:  13:36:57



with a church across the street...

As long as I have a place to land the helicopter and park the private jet! big

dat - Posted - 07/12/2012:  14:36:31



A helicopter would be nice to fly around in and look at a lot of the placed we ride on the river and fly over the deer lease

DeanT - Posted - 07/12/2012:  16:33:38



Having spend my entire career fixing broken flying machines.... I stay on the ground!

OM45GE - Posted - 07/12/2012:  17:48:58



Learned your lesson eh?

DeanT - Posted - 07/12/2012:  20:31:27



I could write a book....

OM45GE - Posted - 07/13/2012:  05:12:35



Why don't you? I would love to hear about your exploits.

dat - Posted - 07/13/2012:  06:05:15



the powered parachutes are fun, a friend of mine that was a helicopter driver in the army has a two seater.  we flew around New Braunfells Tx.    we flew all around then he shut the engine off and we coasted down for a great long while. it was pretty nice

DeanT - Posted - 07/13/2012:  07:46:52



I'll never forget the day I got home from work, and turned on the news, and there was one of our engines sitting in some guys front yard smoldering.... and half the house was smashed. The pilots punched out and nobody got hurt. The rest of the F-16 was scattered in the field across the street.

dat - Posted - 07/13/2012:  08:07:52



WAS IT THE ONE YOU WORKED ON THE DAY BEFORE?

Mr. Quimby - Posted - 07/13/2012:  09:06:07


When I had my accident back in November, I called my buddy DP to come help (pick me up, etc.) and when he got there almost the first thing he said was "It wasn't my brake job that caused the accident, was it?"

dat - Posted - 07/13/2012:  09:18:35



I used to dream that I left something off a car I worked on and caused either and accident or something else to break

OM45GE - Posted - 07/13/2012:  09:53:13



I took a motorcycle I had just tuned up for a test ride and got a bad high-speed wobble that ended up with me a hurting puppy in a ditch and the bike wrecked. Turns out I forgot the cotter pin in the axle nut after adjusting the chain. The nut backed off and the bike didn't want to go straight anymore.

dat - Posted - 07/13/2012:  10:27:29



that could ruin your day pretty quick

DeanT - Posted - 07/13/2012:  10:35:57



Believe it or not... the jet crash came down to a forgotten cotter pin, between the engine and aircraft

dat - Posted - 07/13/2012:  12:52:47



who needs cotter pins when you have a torch and a coat hanger to braze it up

DeanT - Posted - 07/13/2012:  15:05:25



safety wire for me...

dat - Posted - 07/13/2012:  15:30:36



and an extra twist jest 'cause

DeanT - Posted - 07/13/2012:  20:47:49



with a pretty pigtail...

OM45GE - Posted - 07/14/2012:  04:13:30



Whatever you use, they don't work if you don't use them!



I tore up my left rotator cuff in the crash. I didn't have any health insurance and couldn't afford surgery or physical therapy. It was a year before I could move my arm far enough to play the banjo.

DeanT - Posted - 07/14/2012:  09:25:57



Safety wire wouldn't work to well on a rotator cuff 

OM45GE - Posted - 07/15/2012:  10:56:14



No, but when I tore the other one recently they used biosorbable corckscrew anchors which did work pretty well.  big

dat - Posted - 07/16/2012:  07:09:11



how are the arms doing now?   



  I did something to my left shoulder a few years back pulling a dog up into the boat while we were duck hunting and never went to the doctor, it still has a catch every once in a while when I lift something

DeanT - Posted - 07/16/2012:  07:20:54



Mine is like that to, I blame it on the heavy banjo

dat - Posted - 07/16/2012:  07:41:32



well, I'm not glad that yours does that, but it makes me feel better that it may be a little more normal. 



I cut and split a cord of firewood saturday,    I'm pretty sore today,  one of these days I need to invest in a gas powered splitter instead of the manual operated splitting maul, wedges and sledge hammer

OM45GE - Posted - 07/16/2012:  09:27:51



Mine are both doing pretty well. Thanks for asking. I've torn my left one twice - once in the bike crash in 1972 and again a year and a half ago in a fall. No surgery either time but I did have six months of physical therapy. I have about 90 % range of motion and it only gets sore if I swim, kayak or canoe a lot or there's a storm coming.



The right one I really tore up badly three years ago. I tore the rotator ligaments and pulled the biceps muscle out of the bone. The entire joint was frozen. That took three hours of surgery and six months of rehab. It was the worst surgery I've gone through. It's about 100% now though.

dat - Posted - 07/16/2012:  12:32:56



my leg is the weather meter for me, after my back surgery my right leg gets all kinds of strange feelings when the weather is gonna do something different

DeanT - Posted - 07/16/2012:  16:43:36



My grindy knees are worse than my popping shoulders. People around me can hear them sometimes

OM45GE - Posted - 07/17/2012:  04:31:22



Bessie Smith sang a great old Ben Harney tune: You've Been a Good Old Wagon but You Done Broke Down.

dat - Posted - 07/17/2012:  06:44:47



here is Ben Harney singing a Ben Harney tune

Never heard of Ben Harney until this mawnin

OM45GE - Posted - 07/18/2012:  04:58:47



Sure is a different version of the song, but it's cool. Dave van Ronk did a great version of it.

I wonder how Stevie Ray Vaughn would have played that

Ah, SRV. In my mind the finest rock/blues guitarist ever. Gone way too soon.



Here's one of my favorites of his:

dat - Posted - 07/18/2012:  10:25:06



he was one of the greats, dressed kinda like Liberace, but he could play a gee tar

DeanT - Posted - 07/18/2012:  10:38:04



Another vote for SRV as one of the greatest ever

OM45GE - Posted - 07/19/2012:  04:41:34



When someone like Eric Clapton says he was in awe of SRV, you know he was special.
