    What does it say about my priorities that I am seriously considering a tandem for THOUSANDS of dollars, while still doing laundry in a bucket because I am too damm cheap to buy a washer and dryer?

    I can't believe you're still doing your laundry in a bucket, Knot! That's impressive!

    Knot, I read your post out loud to DH and he laughed. And said our priorities are almost as screwed up as yours!

    I think it says your priorities are in the right place - that you're willing to choose joy, energy efficiency, time together with your wife, and a little bit of effort, over labor-displacing [not labor-saving] energy hogging devices.

    Need some more justification?

    Gave my two steel wash tubs to my brother when we moved, I didn't do laundry in them but my Mom did, we also bathed in them my first 3 years of life.

    Note I type this as I sit in my house with my light weight down coat on because I refuse to turn up the thermostat

    Enjoy the test ride, My DH and I are not tandem material so always glad to hear when someone succeeds in the togetherness

    You mean "Baby" or the purse maker?

    Heh, I was online late last night and I saw those. And thought immediately of you folks!

    Was the purse maker the really long incomprehensible post, or was that Baby? (Hey, it was late at night)

    Woops, Baby's gone. All together now: "No-one puts Baby in a corner!"

    His/her posts were short and energetic, so the purse maker I missed must have been the long incomprehensible one.

    Our newest spammer's favorite food is apparently cheese bread. This greatly amuses me!
