They put my son in charge of beans for the annual work cookout. The big potful he took he called "Bubonic Beans". Sounds something like your monstrous batch of chili.

I just had lunch after a beautiful walk. 65 degrees right now, and calm. Getting ready to go to the store to pick up a few things. Wish it was close enough to walk. My foot feels good today and the knees are not bad. The nearest store is eight miles, so I'm not up to that yet. If I didn't need dog food I could ride my bike, but that would be difficult to say the least.

Glad to read that the foot is feeling good an the knees are not bad.

No basket or paniers on your bike?

If I had room on the stove for bigger pots, I'd make twice as much since it would likely require only 25% more time for filling storage containers and cleanup.

No, bit you would be surprised what you can get into a back pack- but not a 35 pound bag of dog food!

I do need to start riding again soon though. A few years ago we were doing 50 mile rides. Last couple of years the rides have been 25 or less usually. That is a nice ride. If I lived where it was flat I would be able to ride a lot more. We took the bikes on a vacation to Michigan once and were pleased at how easy it was to ride at lower altitude.
Thanks!

I'm waiting for the Novocaine to wear off after getting a temporary crown on a broken molar. Not supposed to eat for 4 hours. :sigh:
