  1. Then I'd have to included him at the table. I've seen him eat and I'd rather buy his clothes than feed him. He's kinda like a biological Kirby vacuum cleaner.
  2. Loved his ads, though. He never aired (to my knowledge) the one where he got mauled by Spot.
  3. You do know, don't you, that the Fedora was named after the female star of an opera and wasn't worn by men for a a few years after in came out? BTW, mine are gray (my favorite) and navy blue.
  4. Look at Medtronic Micra. Battery is supposed to be good for almost 14 years. I hope I live long enough to see for sure. Got my mechanics checked today and got a 100% clear mark. Going in next month for the organic (ME) part of the check up. Hard to believe all that fits in a package about the size of a .22 LR cartridge with no external parts at all.... and it's already becoming obsolete.
  5. I'd like to see it go back to 1950's rules....but seeing as how I don't pay any attention to any sports but shooting anymore, I guess I don't really give a "darn".
  6. You're doing better than most people working government enclaves around this nation of ours. You have no need to apologize nor backdown from any conversation. Rave on, my friend.
  7. You're coming here? Crap, I coming to you. Maybe we can wave as we pass each other.
  8. She's learning well and early. If she finds the right guy when she's old enough, they should make a couple to have over for dinner.
  9. my Dad had two: "He (or she) is educated way beyond his (or her) intelligence." "He (or she) is so busy being a good (insert your choice of religions) that he (or she) has no time to be a good person." I came up with one on my own and was so pleased I stashed in my kit for future use: "You have to understand that you are NOT the most important person in the world. You're not even the most important person in this town. Hell, you aren'r even the most important person in this conversation!" It nearly started a fight, but I'm mighty proud of that one. SO THERE!!!
  10. I just finished a championship quality hamburger (half pound of the best ground sirloin I could find fried medium rare, a finely chopped and fried in butter Burmuda onion, baby Swiss cheese, Hormel Black Label bacon, homemade pureed tomato catsup, and a bit of good old fashioned French's yellow mustard), fresh mushrooms sauteed in butter, a cold bottle of sarsaparilla, and a pair of orange cranberry muffins with butter. My dog sat politely by my feet and are her supper of smoked duck, pepperoni, and beef jerky. I have a lattice top Dutch apple pie cooling to eat in about twenty minutes with aerosol whipped cream because I have never successfully been able to whip cream. Finally we are watching a favorite movie with the best bar fight ever filmed (The Great Race), a marvelous food fight, some swordmanship, and Natalie Wood...plus a fun flick to watch for the fiftieth time or so. Tomorrow I get my sixth six month (three years now) check up of my absolutely amazing implanted pacemaker, and then pick up my Dad's rebuild Stevens / Montgomery Ward Ranger 12 gauge shotgun that will be given to my son-in-law for his birthday. My gunsmith has made sure it's ready to shoot and restored it inside and out to near perfect condition. Life is good.
  11. The old man who lived across the street one lot south calmly walked over with about a 18"x 24" divot, handed it to me and said, "I believe this is yours". We are still friends all these years later.
  12. Looks very much like a British Lanchester Mark I series guns. A local gunsmith / machinist got his hands on one and made a dead-ringer of it in semi-auto only for a very rich customer. The original went back to a local dealer in such fully-auto and select-fire doo-dads. I saw both but never got to fire either one......dammit. Side note: they are heavier than a Tommy gun by a significant amount.
  13. My time is rapidly getting to where I'll need help. I already have trouble getting up and sitting down. Once I'm there I'm alright, but achieving each position is work. Getting in and out of my car is most bothersome, cafe booths are next.
  14. Thank you for many years of wonderful entertainment, Mister Lightfoot. God will enjoy your songs.
  15. I used to go with a women's Republican club that always asked the vets to stand. One old man was seated at my table about the third or fourth time I went. He asked me to help stand up. "Son, would you help me stand? I can't manage it alone." Another man and I each took a side and he got vertical, straightened as best he could, and smiled. We stayed standing for the Pledge of Allegiance. The crowd went nuts. I never knew, nor much cared, just who they were clapping for. I hope it was for him. I arranged to share his table for every meeting until he died some months later and we always stood together. At his funeral his daughter told me that she had strict instructions to tell me "thanks".
  16. I eat jerk beefy and my dog get derk jucky treats.
  17. Might be right but I like the taste on many kinds of fish.
  18. Who makes a really good off the shelf tartar sauce that doesn't use high fructose corn syrup. I's also like something as artificial chemicals as possible. Thanks.

  20. At your age I'm surprised you remember spooning.

  22. First sentence: are you referring to the ones who now work for AAA, lots of garages, appliance and electronics stores, etc and can't answer a simple question about a product that they sell or repair (and may have in their hand as you speak), or try to replace a battery in? I give as examples Best Buy, Sears, Verizon, Home Depot and Ace Hardware. ....and a multitude of others. Thank God there's a Lowes and True Value near by and a few specialty places that actually can not only do a job for you, but explain what they are doing, why, and how you can keep it running. Want to have fun? Ask a produce manager ANYTHING about his produce and prepare to be BSed to the point of slapping him.
