WOW, Macho man!!! You did all of that??!!
I feel like a real WUS now.....

Harry, it was nine years ago that I felt all macho when standing in the sun, watching other people wash my car. My macho'osity has evolved since then. Now I feel all macho when I sit at on outside table at Starbucks where the sun can hit me on a hot day, drinking my HOT grande Pike Place like the Real Man that I am.

(Note: regarding the car wash, horribly iron-filled water flows out of our rural south Salem well. Softened house water is too far from our driveway to easily use to wash our cars. So from painful car-spotted experience, I've learned that it is better to take our car to be washed with city water than to spend a lot of time trying to get hard water spots off of the paint and glass.)
