Mark, did you briefly have an avatar of yourself hiking with a woman — a striking resemblance — or did I dream that?

Edit: I don’t know why I wrote “mom” earlier, except that I was receiving updates from mine on her eye surgery. Scatterbrain, i am.
I did. A little mountain goat that spends her vacation time trying to kill me.
She's retiring next year. We're negotiating.

I met her 25 years ago on a hippy bus tour through Mexico. She was the driver and tour guide - and a commanding presence. As I was pretty much the only other adult in the crowd, we hit it off well. You have to take your time with these things...

Edit: Photo removed to reduce the chances that I am murdered in my sleep.

Lady on the train panicked when I took off my mask after sitting down, but visibly relaxed when she saw I was having a coffee.

Remember: I drink coffee to keep you safe, you drink coffee to keep me safe.

Love the avatar Tortoise. In that spirit, I heard in order to level the playing field, Ozzy Osborn was going to debate Biden. ;)
Thanks, Mountaineer! My previous pandemic-themed avatar was starting to show its age -- much like Biden. ;D

Just doing my part to get people revved up for the coming slaughter... er, debates.

@dualstow, what’s the English translation of the text in your new avatar?

"Want to take a hike?" (Literally "Climb a mountain together?")
It's just a show that my wife is watching. Very popular now.
It's about evil deeds, not mountain climbing.

Is that on broadcast TV, Netflix, or what?
