Rob from rainy Maryland 🌻 🇺🇦 🦐 🇮🇷 3:02:00 PM
Good afternoon everyone!
Wal (host) 3:02:14 PM
Afternoon, RMD! Welcome!
JF>SA 3:03:28 PM
Rob, you survived!!!, hey Wal!
Wal (host) 3:03:36 PM
How are things on the East Coast, RMD?
Wal (host) 3:03:44 PM
Hi RJF! You survived, too!
JF>SA 3:04:24 PM
Wes-Syeed, Wal...
Wal (host) 3:05:54 PM
I'm very good with 77 and sunny
Wal (host) 3:07:19 PM
Fortunately, we didn't have to endure the harsh conditions of the Gulf Coast & Atlantic Coast from Ian. Tragedy out there.
Rob from rainy Maryland 🌻 🇺🇦 🦐 🇮🇷 3:08:56 PM
Hi Wal and JF! My neighborhood has seen about an inch of rain so far, and winds sometimes gusting into the 30s. No power outages right by me. It's 59 and overcast right now
Wal (host) 3:09:23 PM
Glad to hear you're doing okay out there, RMD.
Rob from rainy Maryland 🌻 🇺🇦 🦐 🇮🇷 3:10:02 PM
I feel really bad for all the folks near the Florida landfall of Ian. Their lives can never be the same.
Wal (host) 3:10:43 PM
I saw the devastation on the news. Tragic.
Rob from rainy Maryland 🌻 🇺🇦 🦐 🇮🇷 3:12:25 PM
Thanks, Wal and JF. It's going to be a few days before the highs hit 70 here (normal is about 75)
Wal (host) 3:13:32 PM
You can borrow our weather for today!
Rob from rainy Maryland 🌻 🇺🇦 🦐 🇮🇷 3:15:22 PM
A cold front went through a couple of days ago, then the clouds from Ian came, and then the rain. So it's been kind of cold here.
Wal (host) 3:15:48 PM
Might make birding a little tougher...?
Rob from rainy Maryland 🌻 🇺🇦 🦐 🇮🇷 3:16:29 PM
I'd love to borrow your weather! It looks like it will hit 70 for just one day and then it gets cooler again.
Rob from rainy Maryland 🌻 🇺🇦 🦐 🇮🇷 3:17:19 PM
Birding was slow today, in a break from the rain late this morning. It was enjoyable though
Rob from rainy Maryland 🌻 🇺🇦 🦐 🇮🇷 3:20:05 PM
Wal and JF, how are you two doing?
Robb Bell 3:22:57 PM
Hey Gents! Family BBQ today so i can't chat long, but wanted to check in
JF>SA 3:23:16 PM
On a happier note Rob, I saw an article that stated that Maryland has eradicated the dreaded Nutria rat(?) from the entire state, good on ya Maryland!
JF>SA 3:23:38 PM
Welcome aboard Robb!
JF>SA 3:24:16 PM
Enjoy your family Q!
Wal (host) 3:24:29 PM
RMD, sorry to hear about the slow birding, but at least you got to get out into a nature for a bit!
Wal (host) 3:24:36 PM
RB, welcome and thanks for checking in!!
Rob from rainy Maryland 🌻 🇺🇦 🦐 🇮🇷 3:25:06 PM
Hi Robb B!
Wal (host) 3:25:32 PM
RMD, things are going well around these parts, thanks for asking. Had a nice week and enjoying the weekend so far. Went for a motorcycle ride this morning up into the Mount Baldy area just north of the Claremont city limits.
Rob from rainy Maryland 🌻 🇺🇦 🦐 🇮🇷 3:25:56 PM
JF, huh. Yay! I didn't know that. I did occasionally see Nutrias on the Eastern Shore/Delmarva Peninsula.
Wal (host) 3:26:25 PM
I take it Nutrias are not nutritious?
Rob from rainy Maryland 🌻 🇺🇦 🦐 🇮🇷 3:26:35 PM
Wal, hee hee
Rob from rainy Maryland 🌻 🇺🇦 🦐 🇮🇷 3:27:02 PM
Wal (host) 3:27:13 PM
Nutria sounds like a kind of medication or a healthy granola bar
Wal (host) 3:27:24 PM
"Ask your doctor if Nutria is right for you"
Rob from rainy Maryland 🌻 🇺🇦 🦐 🇮🇷 3:27:41 PM
Indeed, it does sound like a health snack or medication
JF>SA 3:27:52 PM
Don't rightly know Wal, perhaps we should ask our resident chef for Nutria Q tips, Ha!
Wal (host) 3:28:10 PM
Hahaha! Don't think it's wise to BBQ the Nutria.
Rob from rainy Maryland 🌻 🇺🇦 🦐 🇮🇷 3:28:33 PM
It was nice to be outside today (at least until the rain started again). I'm hoping tomorrow will be nicer
Rob from rainy Maryland 🌻 🇺🇦 🦐 🇮🇷 3:28:56 PM
BBQ Nutria, do it! Nutria sandwich!
Rob from rainy Maryland 🌻 🇺🇦 🦐 🇮🇷 3:29:07 PM
Just kidding
Wal (host) 3:29:18 PM
Nutria with Nutella. Mmmmm!
Rob from rainy Maryland 🌻 🇺🇦 🦐 🇮🇷 3:29:26 PM
Mmmmm yes
Rob from rainy Maryland 🌻 🇺🇦 🦐 🇮🇷 3:29:31 PM
Wal (host) 3:29:41 PM
Start a whole new delicacy out there in MD
Wal (host) 3:30:36 PM
It was a bit cold as I ascended Mt. Baldy. I didn't go all the way up. I was wearing my riding jacket and jeans, thought I'd be good in terms of temp, but it got a bit foggy and visibility was low, so I peeled off and headed back down hill.
Rob from rainy Maryland 🌻 🇺🇦 🦐 🇮🇷 3:31:57 PM
Prolly wise!
Robb Bell 3:32:25 PM
No truth to the rumor that nutrias taste like chicken!
Wal (host) 3:32:40 PM
Haha, RB! Good to hear the validation.
JF>SA 3:32:44 PM
Can you ride up to the peak or did you dismount and hoof it?
Wal (host) 3:33:42 PM
I didn't get anywhere near the peak. No road that I know of takes you to the peak, I think the highest you can get is the base of the ski lifts. You'd have to hike it up from there. I didn't even get into Baldy Village this morning. I was a little tight for time, too.
Robb Bell 3:34:57 PM
Gotta bounce. Enjoy the chat and the rest of y'all's weekend. C ya Wal, JF, and RMD Until next week...
Wal (host) 3:35:12 PM
Take care, RB!!
JF>SA 3:35:49 PM
Do the Q Robb!
JF>SA 3:37:13 PM
I Hear It!!!
JF>SA 3:37:23 PM
Rob from rainy Maryland 🌻 🇺🇦 🦐 🇮🇷 3:48:45 PM
Bye RB!
JF>SA 3:51:21 PM
He'll probably be back to give us the details of 'the menu', ha!
Wal (host) 3:54:38 PM
The menu? Nutria steaks, Nutria cake and Nutria shakes.
JF>SA 3:55:47 PM
Your fixating Wal!
Wal (host) 3:56:00 PM
JF>SA 3:57:45 PM
What size bike do you have?
Wal (host) 3:58:42 PM
Today's bike was tiny! 125cc
JF>SA 4:01:05 PM
Just basic transpo or do you ride anything larger, I stick to the pedal variety
Wal (host) 4:06:26 PM
I don't ride larger motorcycles, lots of small stuff. It's not my daily driver, just to cruise around for fun.
JF>SA 4:11:10 PM
I see..., good to have/hold onto in these times of outrageous gas prices!
Wal (host) 4:11:37 PM
Yeah, they're definitely economical.
Wal (host) 4:12:13 PM
Have you ever ridden motorcycles?
JF>SA 4:14:16 PM
Yeah, In the past, saw too many frinds go down hard, kinda got away from it
Wal (host) 4:14:43 PM
I hear ya. I saw a motorcyclist in an accident not too long ago. Makes you stop and think.
Wal (host) 4:15:08 PM
The motorcyclist seemed OK, but the bike was laid down in the middle of the intersection.
Rob from rainy Maryland 🌻 🇺🇦 🦐 🇮🇷 4:23:00 PM
I was about to type 30 to 50 Hampton Hogs when I saw the playlist
Rob from rainy Maryland 🌻 🇺🇦 🦐 🇮🇷 4:23:14 PM
I guess I am getting a little hard of hearing
Wal (host) 4:23:35 PM
Wal (host) 4:24:10 PM
I hope you are not having a nutria dinner over there in MD, RMD!
JF>SA 4:32:39 PM
Thought The Admiral might chime in about the Dodgers today...
Wal (host) 4:33:07 PM
What happened to the Dodgers?
JF>SA 4:37:59 PM
Can you text that JPL link, thnx!
Wal (host) 4:38:14 PM
Yes! youtube.com/nasajpl
JF>SA 4:45:01 PM
RZ usually tells us everything happening with La Dodgers, eh
JF>SA 4:46:04 PM
Thnx for the link, haven't been to the JPL website in a while
Wal (host) 4:47:45 PM
JF>SA 4:54:06 PM
Thanks for the cool Jazz session on this cool Saturday Wal, Rob and Robb see ya next time!
Wal (host) 4:54:58 PM
Thank you, JF!! Have a nice weekend.
Rob from rainy Maryland 🌻 🇺🇦 🦐 🇮🇷 4:58:01 PM
Bye everyone! Stay cool
Wal (host) 4:58:23 PM
Have a nice weekend, RMD!!
Rob from rainy Maryland 🌻 🇺🇦 🦐 🇮🇷 4:58:46 PM
