  1. You forgot Donkey in Shrek. To each their own. I can still recall sitting with friends in both high school and college and all of us laughing ourselves silly watching his stuff.
  2. No, Eddie Murphy was funny. Richard Pryor was comedic genius.
  3. Just remember, if you're water source is a well or is otherwise "hard" water, it is likely high in calcium.
  4. You almost never see any that high, but some lift is common. Stacks are a common thing on diesels, though.
  5. Ah, we got a bit of that, but I tend to associate it more with the nineties and later. Midwest must have been behind the curve on that one! That, and most of the guys were are still lifting their trucks around here.
  6. I don't associate those with the '80s, for some reason. When I think think of vehicles, I think of the renewed pony car wars between the Fox Body Mustangs and the Camaros / Firebirds, with the turbo Shelby Chargers making them both at least take notice for a couple of years. With trucks, I tend to think of the 4x4 mini trucks, of the sort seen in Back to the Future. I'll admit I would still like a near mint Shelby Charger Turbo!
  7. Let's hope it's a case of under-promising and over-delivering.
  8. Buried at Arlington National Cemetary. I believe that speaks volumes about the man.
  9. You'll both remain in my thoughts and meditations.
  10. Building scale models and having dropped more than one small part and having difficulty finding it, I've found that laying a flashlight on its side on the floor and looking for the small part's shadow often works.
  11. I'm not sure why, but that reminded me of one of my favorite poems. Tennyson's Crossing the Bar. We saw my father-in-law off with it when he passed away, and as far as I am concerned, it can be recited for me as well. Sunset and evening star, And one clear call for me! And may there be no moaning of the bar, When I put out to sea, But such a tide as moving seems asleep, Too full for sound and foam, When that which drew from out the boundless deep Turns again home. Twilight and evening bell, And after that the dark! And may there be no sadness of farewell, When I embark; For tho' from out our bourne of Time and Place The flood may bear me far, I hope to see my Pilot face to face When I have crost the bar.
  12. Yes, I know. I meant that I thought the quote, "if you remember______, you weren't there," was originally said about Woodstock. I was almost four when the sixties ended, so I can safely say I remember very little of it.
  13. Yes, you have the 84 if it is a double stack. Mine is a single stack. I'm not sure how much thicker the double stack is, to be honest. I will change to wooden Beretta grips eventually, just because I like wooden grips. I might try to upgrade the sights too. Either a fiber optic front sight or night sites so my eyes can pick them up more easily.
  14. I picked up a Beretta 85 not long ago. Love it! Just need to pick up another magazine or three and swap out to some wooden grip panels. Glad your weekend ended up better.
  15. All things "preppy." Ray Ban Wayfarers, courtesy of Risky Business. Ray Ban Aviators, courtesy of Top Gun. Eddie Murphy being actually funny. 'London Calling' posters MTV Parachute Pants Oversized WHAM! tee shirts Oversized Frankie Goes to Hollywood tee shirts Levis 501 Jeans I could go on, and on. Guess who went to high school and most of college in the 80s?
  16. There are some things that, when you see them, make you stop and shake your head in disbelief. This is one such.
  17. I thought that was Woodstock
  18. City of New Orleans was written by the late Steve Goodman. He was also responsible for "the perfect country song," You Never Even Called My By My Name."
  19. Nope, I was never a fan of the Rolling Stones. As far as "aging" rock stars go, though, I saw Rush on their final tour, forty years into their career. I am glad I did, and that my daughters were able to see them as well. Of course, with them, it was never about the jumping around or anything, it was all about the music, and they went out while they could still perform at a level that was still awe inspiring to their fans. I'm still saddened by Neil Peart's death.
  20. And women's shoes tie in an opposite fashion from men's too!
  21. Fascinating. My mother was born and raised in Eastern Kentucky, and always made great biscuits. I asked her once for her recipe, and she said she just added ingredients until it looked right. I watched, and nope, still can't make them. I've done a close approximation of her gravy, when I don't scorch it. Her cornbread, I haven't tried to make, although my older sister does, and does a reasonable job of it. She gave me a recipe, I just haven't given it a try yet.
  22. I'm sure you aren't going to be in the dog house. Still in my thoughts and meditations.
