  1. Picked up a bottle of Jameson’s at the likker store the other day. At the register was a display of 750 ml bottles of hand sanitizer. I’m pretty dang sure it’s just relabeled bottles of Everclear.
  2. Good one! I’ll bet Henny Youngman told that joke.
  3. Putting on the Ritz as sung by Frankenstein’s monster.
  4. Hey Pat, I think what Dave means is the 4 posts you made earlier today aren't visible. They just show up as broken link text at my end.
  5. Fascinating. I knew the barrel shroud had something to do with cooling, but didn't know there were fins underneath.
  6. She's definitely the better half. Keeps me between the fence posts!
  7. If I had the coin, that's exactly what I'd do -- have one of each! But alas, I'm unable to do that at the moment. Other gunly things are higher on the list.
  8. No thanks on the tower stuff. Though not at dizzying heights, this is pretty amazing. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qcUHlmT7cIY
  9. I thought the penny was for good luck. I don't recall pay phones taking anything but nickels dimes and quarters.
  10. An admiral and a chief were in the barbershop getting haircuts. When finished, the admiral's barber asked if he'd like some tonic in his hair. The admiral said, "No thanks. I don't want my wife thinking I smell like a bordello." The chief's barber asked the same thing and the chief replied, "Go ahead and splash it on. My wife doesn't know what a bordello smells like."
  11. "We're the phone company, we don't have to care." -- Ernestine Tomlin "Everybody hates the phone company." -- Godfrey Cambridge in 'The President's Analyst"
  12. For people who only had on-the-street parking, where were they supposed to put them? In NYC that only applied to designated snow routes, which didn't affect us much in the residential areas.
  13. I had a 1973 Plymouth Duster (same as the Dart) just like this but with a 225 cid slant six and no rally stripes. Bought it brand new for $2,500. I still think it's a nice looking car. The only other good thing about it was the engine and tranny, which was a floor mounted 3-speed stick. I had to pay $35 to have the shifter on the floor instead steering column. The rest of the car was crap. Typical of the era, it was very poorly made. You could practically hear it rust. At the time I doubt the term quality assurance was familiar in Detroit board rooms or on the factory floor.
  14. I'm old enough to remember party lines. When we moved to the new 'burbs back in '65, many had to share the same number for awhile because SW Bell didn't have enough to go around.
