You have more micro scales than a drug dealer?

I asked the surgeon about TI for my toe fusion op and he said stainless was better. Plus the extra weight would be counteracted by the loss of 6mm of bone... ;)

I don't know the preference of kitchen scale of my wife's. She mostly buy quality scales for kitchen needs and Weight Weenie is not a big issue for her!

Two Weight Weenies riding through the park......

"Nice wheels, when did you get those?"
"I was riding through here after work, a gorgeous blonde passed me, jumped off the road onto the grass and took off all her clothes. She told me to take what I wanted............."
"Too right, her frame would have probably been too small........"
