Hope you enjoyed your time with your daughter @BoltBait

 

As short as the time was, yes, I enjoyed spending time with my daughter and my grand-kids.

 

We enjoy playing board games.  We played Patchwork and Rivals for Catan which is a 2 player card game based on the Settlers game. It was just as fun (frustrating, ha!) as the original.

 

Me with my daughter, @lizzy_1_year:

what did the Prius actually return MPG wise on a long run, compared to the official figures ?

 

Here is a picture I took of the dashboard after about 1000 miles on the trip. I had reset TripA for the purposes of measuring the MPG for my trip:

 

TripA.jpg

Sorry for the blurriness of the picture, but I was driving at the time and had to take the picture with one hand... I cleaned it up the best I could.

 

For those across the pond:

 

80 MPH = 129 KPH

1051.1 Miles = 1691.6 Kilometres

51.1 MPG = 21.7 KML

91*F = 32.8*C

 

Official MPG of the Prius is 55MPG, so close. I did notice that it gets better MPG when using the cruise control.

 

I, typically, get around 48-49MPG (20.4-20.8 KML).

You've got a very pretty daughter (I want her T-Shirt ...)

 

 

I must be getting old, she only looks about 12 😉

 

I found it a few weeks ago at Walmart, your local store probably has one! (Edit: My dad pointed out you live in the UK. Maybe Asda, Amazon, or Etsy then!) 

 I'm 23, but I do get that a lot 😉 My husband loves to tell the story of the time we went to a restaurant and they gave me the "children under 12 get in free with a parent" discount. 😝

Whoa... @toe_head2001 looks like a rock star! And @BoltBait your daughter is gorgeous. 

 

Long trips though, oof. I used to travel from Wisconsin to Alabama every summer on the bus, and it's about 24 hours that way too. I feel your pain.


Thank you so much! I did really enjoy seeing my dad, although hopefully he won't need to make the trip again! After Coronavirus calms down a bit I'll be flying our kids in to see him more often 😄

WOW!  Love all of the above!  <3

 

@toe_head2001... not at all how I imagined you'd look.  You're so...young!  I see why you are 'toe-head'.

 

@BoltBait... your daughter and grandchildren are adorable.  I'm glad you had some time with them!

 

@lizzy_1_year... your children are so precious! Looks like you have your hands full.

And you have a picture with Leonard Nimoy!  He is sorely missed.  Loved his little 'voice' cameos on Big Bang Theory, not to mention Star Trek.

 

Take care of yourself everyone!

@dipstick OMG- yet another good looking chappy we have on the forum 😱  I thought you'd look more like a Harley Davidson fella. 

 

Us girls are having such nice eye candy today.

 

But ................... still waiting for @MJW @toe_head2001 and @Maximilianto appear :lol: Oh and @ReMake too :D  @Scooter as well

As usual I failed to see this post at the appropriate time- sigh. I am a shy person by nature so I usually forgo real pictures of real me. Example:  blank2-60-X69.jpg

But  as so many of you have shown your real world selves, I guess I can too........OK,OK I getting there........AKKKK! ----Here: 20171022-120944-ME-4-X3.jpg

Hi @Scooter

I have seen your humorous posts on here many times, I must say I never would have guessed you would look like you do, excellent picture (a very friendly face too) :)

HI back to you as well. Thank you for the complement, though as I seem to have confused you with  nom de PDN, I have decided to not be concerned as you likely were picturing  me as much younger and better looking, for a Yank 😉😄

p.s. hope your health is improving day by day. Stay well and keep your fantastic art showing up here.

@Scooter What a fine and dapper man you are. I some how expect you to be drinving a Kenworth and hauling logs along some ice road.:D

Well, you are right.truck-2017-03-20-19-56-32-UTC.gif  Driving a Kenworth and hauling logs on the ice road is what I do----in my mind😄
But never one to shatter the dreams of my favorite Swedish friend, ----- OK, OK, My only Swedish friend,embarrested.gif.9af18830134aaf1a56f293d42ac952f1.gif.         

 In reality, I am an extremely wealthy multi-national tycoon with private yachts, planes, exotic cars that even the sultans of Arabia can not afford, with vast estates scattered across the globe, OR I'm just a silly ol' guy that has a good normal-like life. That I have come to appreciate what I do have.  Dang it, you made me get serious.  It must be your smile or something.  So, while the Times are what they are we all will just have to “Adapt, Persevere and Overcome” as I learned way back in my short lived military days.

 I shall leave you in peace, for a bit giggles.gif.454efa4c31920870480a2a9cbad9cd29.gif
