    And not the first time it has been tried on Ballard Street. This will not end happily, for Martin.

    I’m waiting for some dumb-dumb to try this for real.

    Well, I don’t know. I think it ranks up in his top 5 great ideas. Scooter does seem skeptical, however.

    Mildred is going to be picking gravel out of his nose with a pair of tweezers.

    My snoring is awful. I have sleep apnea and I have to sleep with a hose strapped to my face. People ask me how on earth I sleep with that thing. “Like a log,” I answer.

    There’s nothing a cop can do. It’s not a motor vehicle.

    Um…. I think Martin’s contraption might not be his VERY best idea because…. well….


    …..the front and back axles …
    I mean…. shouldn’t there be a…strap…. or a platform… between the… front and ba….

    NO…. before he tries going down the Cherry St hill…..
    and the weight on his back wheels make them catch up with his….


    Too late.

    And I HOPE that white thing behind him is not what it looks like….


    A stick handle, like on a little kid’s push toy….
    because it….
    well, it just…
    no…. it’s gotta be something else…. doesn’t it?


    x_Tech! Isn’t this something else you can redesign??
    I’m sure Martin would buy you a few beers….

    People have weird ideas about apnea and CPAP….
    You don’t need to be huge or lazy or …
    pretty much fit ANY category to have apnea.


    I first heard about it from a friend who was diagnosed about 15 years ago…. he’s about 6’2" and maybe 160 pounds…
    and still carries heavy stuff and does home repairs by himself, in his 60’s.


    His wife heard him stop breathing in between his room-shaking snores.
    He got the first CPAP machine I ever saw.


    It was as big as a car battery and made noise all night….
    Mine is the size of a small lunchbox and almost silent.

    It’s a bother at first…. but when you discover what it can do for you…. wow.


    I recommend that anyone who’s “accused” of snoring (and it’s not a crime!) be tested.
    It’s worth it.
    That’s why I talk about it publicly.
