36 [M4F] Houston/Texas - Dad bod seeks mom bod for ongoing friendship
2021.10.24 14:40 Wise_Kangaroo3909 36 [M4F] Houston/Texas - Dad bod seeks mom bod for ongoing friendship
Dad bod in Houston looking for a mom bod who isn't 100% sure what they're looking for but knows they want to make some kind of connection with someone. Someone who doesn't pressure, someone who understands.
I want to message throughout the day when we both have the time, and if we don't that's cool too.
Someone to get things off their chest that they cant with anyone else.
I don't want a best friend out of this, i don't want a girlfriend, i don't want a soulmate, but I would like someone to go back and forth with, for chats, and hopefully meet up and go on little adventures once in a while that no one will ever know about like walks in the park, nature trails, or meet in the movies.
If this sounds like something you'd be into send me a message and lets chat!
My only requirement is you live in the greater Houston area :)

2021.10.24 14:40 Linkhar Help needed from the techs
Hello. I recently purchased a used ICS cxp. It was shooting well (1.8 with .25's). It was a tad loud so i wanted to reshim it. I did, and everything is smooth, but it now shoots 0.25 ish j instead. What could have happened? It's godt 12:1 gears, SHS torque motor, ultimate M120 spring, lonex cylinder, SHS piston and piston head, and titan advanced. Not entirely sure why a reshim would bring it down so much. What could have gone wrong? Any help is appreciated.

2021.10.24 14:40 Neuro_Nightmare What is a ‘normal’ amount of cognitive and physical decline for an 80yo? Concerned about my FIL. "Sticky" situation as an in law, and concerned MIL is not doing what's necessary for his care.
My father in law is 80. No daily medications. 5’6ish, slightly overweight but not obese.
Previous smoker, but quit 30 years ago. Had colo-rectal cancer that was caught early and treated 20+ years ago. Surgery for cataracts a couple years ago.
A little background info- Husband’s Dad. Married and living with my MIL (husband’s Mom). It was FIL's second marriage and there a 17 year age gap. Their kids (my husband, SIL, BIL) are all grown and out of the house. My MIL is a busy body, and spends a large chunk of her time out of the house, which leaves FIL home alone (and unable to drive) for significant chunks of the day, every single day. FIL retired many years ago, but had a job a few days a week to keep busy until covid. Since then, he had surgery for cataracts, which was successful, but no longer drives (a good thing).
There has been a very noticeable decline in my FIL in the last 4 years, which seems to have really picked up in the last 2ish years.
- he has (for as long as I’ve known him) repeated stories semi frequently, but it’s basically constant now. Like a loop of the same chunks of memories that he cycles through when we see him.
- a few years ago I noticed that when several of us are together and he isn’t actively involved in the conversation, he seems to be in a dissociative state. He stares across the room with a blank look on his face. When it’s happening, he isn’t listening to what’s going on around him. MIL got his hearing checked a few years ago, and it was normal. I think she got it checked because of the incidents described above, but didn’t notice that he “can’t hear” in isolated episodes.
- the above mentioned issues used to only happen in group settings, but 1 v 1 or 2 v 1 with him he would be more active in conversation. This has slowly declined though, and when I saw him 1 v 1 the other day, he was silent and disassociated the majority of the time if I didn’t actively keep his attention with conversation. I discreetly watched him from across the room, and could see him get lost in thought, slip into a dissociative staring trance, his mouth would just kind of hang open with a blank look on his face, and then after several mins, he would make a face/have body language like he was "startled" back into reality.
- We have a 6 and 3 yo. When our 6 year old was younger, FIL would sit and watch him play/ engage with him/ comment on what he was doing. This slowly stopped over the years, and I’ve noticed it more since our 3yo was born. She can be playing on the floor right in front of where he is sitting, and it’s like she isn’t even there. When I try to include him in my kids conversation/ playing, it’s getting harder and harder to get his attention for him to “snap back” into reality.
- Last week I went over there for a couple hours with my 3 yo. She just had her birthday a month ago, but FIL asked when her birthday was and how old she is. Shortly after, he said “did you know I turned 80 on my last birthday” which caught me really off guard because they had a large family party to celebrate his 80th (in May). He also asked twice in a short period of time what grade 6yo is in, and when I casually answered the second time, he didn’t seem to remember already asking bc I didn’t point it out.
- Noticeable decline in ability to follow stories/information being told to him. He asks for clarification/information to be repeated a lot, and gets confused easily. If it involves information that has been told to him previously, you have to remind him of that information before hand.
- I've always noticed that he worries a lot, and will become obsessively anxious about seemingly random things. This has increased more and more over the years, and its not uncommon for my husband to get calls from him asking about our insurance, cars, and other random stuff he can tell FIL is sitting and over thinking about.
- In the last couple of years, he has made more and more very sad comments (to me) pointing to him being deeply depressed. He stopped coming to as many large family events other than holidays, and my MIL just says he "doesn't like crowds". But then at a family wedding last summer, I hung around the table with him (because everyone else was walking around socializing, leaving him sitting alone- a common theme) and he said "I don't know why I'm even here. No one cares that I'm here, and they wouldn't notice if I wasn't". I told him I cared that he was there, and that I'm sure others did too, but he made a comment about how he knows I just sit with him so that he won't be alone.
- He spends the majority of his time watching TV. There have been numerous times that when we/I have showed up to visit (we just let ourselves in) that he is just sitting and staring out the window/across the room. I used to think this was just when he knew we were coming, so he was sitting and waiting, but I'm not so sure anymore. His previous main "hobbies" revolved around my husband and his sibling's sports and other activities, but the youngest sibling has been out of the house for almost 7+ years now.
- He has had a head/shoulders forward posture for as long as I’ve known him, plus in old pictures I’ve seen. But in the last few years, it’s much more pronounced in general, and includes when walking now.
- In combo with the posture, his gait in general has gotten worse. He doesn’t move his torso/arms/hips/thighs much when walking, and his steps are very shuffled. He doesn’t seem to lift his feet off the ground very much. He moves very slowly because of this. He has a son and daughter from his first marriage (50's), and I found out from my husband's half-sister in law that he frequently stumbles and almost falls when he visits their house. He gets around "okay" at home because he has lived there for 30 years, but any place less known to him is a struggle. I think my MIL blamed this on lighting/his cataracts for a while, but its definitely not the sole issue anymore. There was a family funeral last December (in a well lit room) and I looked over and realized how much he was struggling to get around when everyone had to get up and follow the casket being carried out to the hearse. I went and walked with him, and as soon as I offered my arm, he held onto it the remainder of the time. He used to be more stubborn to accept help, but I can tell he knows he needs it more now.
So I guess my question is, how much can depression and now semi-isolation solely lead to cognitive decline, especially at his age? Can being less active in general be the sole factor in his physical decline? I'm concerned about the combination of both cognitive and physical decline seeming to happen in tandem, which makes me more concerned that something else is going on and being blamed on "getting old".
This is also a sticky situation as an in-law, and without fully going into a rant about my MIL, she is very dismissive and her favorite phrase is "he's fine/they're fine/you're fine" etc. I can tell lots of people are discreetly concerned about FIL, but she shuts down all discussion about it. She has a habit of willfully ignoring/procrastinating things in hopes they get better. It seems like she is avoiding dealing with any of this in general, but whether its out of feaanxiety, obliviousness, trying to protect her own/other's feelings, or willful ignorance isn't really known. My FIL is known to be quite stubborn, so I'm sure not wanting to deal with him potentially refusing help is also a factor.
She has seemingly convinced my BIL/SIL that this is all normal. My husband knows its not, and carries a huge burden. We can't talk about it without my husband becoming really emotional and shutting down. He calls FIL everyday on his drive home from work just to talk. The same half-sister in law that I mentioned before and I have talked about all of this privately, and she hints that herself and her husband (FIL's son from first marriage) have tried to talk about it, but that MIL shuts it down.
They live in a 2 story home, and I am constantly worried about him falling while alone. MIL and her family go on a 2-3 week trip every spring out of state. FIL used to come, but doesn't anymore. This past year, we didn't know he wasn't going until right up when MIL was leaving. When my husband and I raised concerns about him being alone for that amount of time, she was completely dismissive. My husband and I both called him separately at least twice a day to check in on him, which he said he appreciated. One day during MIL's trip, FIL had asked my husband to come look at his garage door that wasn't opening on his way home from work, and when my husband got there, FIL was ON A LADDER in the closed garage looking at the door track. My husband respectfully scolded him and said he cannot be climbing ladders in general, especially when alone and in a place he could fall an no one would see/hear him. FIL seemed to understand and promised he would be more careful, but that only increased our anxiety about what he is doing while alone on the daily that is totally unsafe. When MIL got home, my husband told her about it, and she brushed it off like everything else in a "whelp what can you do?" sort of way.
They live about 40 mins away, and I can't currently drive because of epilepsy. I wish I could visit him more often during the day, but can't currently. I know I can't do much on my own, but I think just general frequent in-person socializing and encouraging him to go on walks and be more active would help to some degree. Other than that, I'm not sure what else I can do without stepping on toes, but this whole situation is getting more and more concerning. SIL is getting married next summer, and I'm concerned at this rate of decline he is really going to struggle walking her down the aisle. This specific concern might be an "opening"/opportunity to discuss his physical abilities, and a goal to work towards, but I've been hesitant to bring it up.
Thank you for any insight.
