Bought a viola.  Still shopping for a bow and case.

 

I was planning to do all of that with my bonus anyway.

Carbon fiber from stem to stern. And electronic shifting. Drives the price way up.

My race bike is worth over $12k

Did you get the ceramic speed bearings? I was looking at them for something totally different (not bike) a while back. As I investigated they sure seemed like snake oil salesmen to me.

I got a pretty sweet (for me, obviously not anybody serious) bike recently. 1999 Klein Quantum Race. Just over 19 lbs and 100% stock. I've been riding the hell out of it recently.

Looks exactly like this. Coolest paint ever (orange to yellow fade).

He did. It was a rigid mountain bike. It looked to small for him.

I actually spent quite a bit last week after a long lull.  $600 in groceries ( :wacko:), $300 for a tractor accessory, $200 restocking cigars, $250 in materials for home projects and $180 on booze.  The "big purchase" a had planned for the spring was to refresh the living room furniture but all the furniture stores are closed so that remains on hold.

Carbon fiber bikes are retardedly expensive. Especially those specialized bikes for the stuff he does.

that bike paint job reminds me of the Salsa Las Cruces point scheme that was a similar orange.

 

We are close to pulling the trigger on a new truck.   We had planned on getting one at the end of the year anyways.  Economy has thrown a wrench at us, but we are about to move forward anyways.

Dodge Ram 1500 with the smaller V6.   We put a lot of highway miles on vehicles so the gas savings vs. power that we give up works for us.

 

also looking at getting this:  https://topperezlift.com/    If we put one of those decked storage units inside that, with the ez lift my wife and I could easily camp in there.
