  1. Being a Texas license plate, the driver probably thought he was in his pickup truck, which could straddle the barriers easily! Besides, who pulls a trailer (see his hitch) with a Dodge Charger?
  2. I had to google Pavlovas, but they look delicious! People around the world celebrate their holidays differently, but the same. We all like good food, good drink, and fun times. And guns, too! It's the damned politicians that create divisions between us. Thanks, BB, for the photos. They could have been taken up here, down there, or most anywhere that folks are having fun!
  3. At my bird feeder, one of those round chicken feeders that fit a Mason jar, and hangs from a tree, the Blue Jays chase off the Cardinals. The Cardinals will chase the little birds, but they come back to the other side of the feeder while the Cardinal is still there. Dove chase them all away except the woodpeckers. They all know that the Woodpeckers are crazy, and let them eat alone. The squirrels eat corn on the ground. I fixed the bird feeder so that the squirrels fall off of it. It was funny watching them learn. Day 274 - Replied to online ML Forum describing my bird feeder.
  4. Shade is essential when you work outside. I'm surprised I haven't seen this in Houston. Chas in Arizona might have seen this. It gets hot there, too!
  5. Nothing new. It happens every summer, from April to November. Igloo Coolers learned that a long time ago, and they built a big plant in Katy, west of Houston. Kept many a potato salad and Lone Star Beer cold!
  6. 1, OK, Vegemite on bread or toast, I get it. Never had it, but would be willing to try. 2. Is that a sausage, hot dog, or what kind of tube steak with ketchup (same kind that we use)? On a universal bun. It identifies as a bun for whatever meat is used. 3. Avocado toast. We love it in Texas, and loved it in Brussels with Belgian chocolate milk. Odd coupling, I know, but the avo toast was the cheapest thing on the menu at $11. I haven't put feta cheese on it, but I'll try it! 4. Sprinkles on marshmallow bread / toast? Looks fun, need details. My Wife has been posting photos of me on Fbook, since I just earned another birthday candle, but all of the photos show me eating. The hot choc in Brussels, glühwein all over Germany, tacos all over Texas, chicken fried steak, all kinds of good stuff. So, it's neat to see the kinds of foods that other folks like. Thanks, Buckshot!
  7. They sure couldn't use this ad here (in the US) and now! What would happen if a man as pictured had POWER???
  8. If someone has one, post photos of it. I've never seen one, and would love to see how cowboys lost their wages!
  9. Yes, times have changed. While visiting our son at Ramstein AFB is Germany, we stayed in Kaiserslautern. There is a monument in town listing all of the town's residents and their ages that were killed in WW2. It included old folks and young kids that were killed in the bombings. Then, back at home, I saw a tv show about the Allies and the bombing missions into Germany. It featured a pilot that had a mission to Kaiserslautern. He was considered a hero for his bravery. His mission may have put those names on the monument. I will not argue the right or wrong of the war and the bombing of civilians during WW2. I was just moved by seeing the results from both sides of the conflict. Fortunately, times have changed.
  10. The trail rides coming into Houston are a really cool tradition. I wish you good weather and good traffic control!
  11. That cat is BEAUTIFUL, but I don't think I could ever truly relax around it. Cats have taught me to not trust them. I like dogs better, anyway.
  12. So, with the stories we've heard, was this built on a Monday, by a disgruntled employee, or just some funny guy?
  13. Fishing by DuPont, they used to call it. Better living through chemistry.
  14. Whew! That was close! I was afraid everyone would start dressing like me! Except my diaper is dark green for better concealment. But I like the bandoleer suspenders!
  15. And that's what y'all export to us here in Texas! I thought we were friends!
  16. Finally!!! I knew not EVERYTHING could kill you! I just didn't dare do the research. It resembles the Japanese Beetles that got on my Mom's rose bushes in the '60s. Grab a bunch of them in your closed hand, and their pointed legs/feet felt all prickly. Then find a girl to throw them on. Decided to quit doing that when I "noticed" the girls.
  17. One of those danged Texas Squirrel Bears. They're gone from West Texas, but you can still find some in the East Texas pineywoods. They like to jump on hunters from trees. This guy was lucky!
  18. Lots of us have family in the Armed Services that won't be home for Christmas. “Boots in the House” means that an active-duty serviceman/woman is visiting home. This was written by an Air Force Mom. Boots in the House I’ll have no boots this season underneath my Christmas tree, I tried to keep my hopes up, but it wasn’t meant to be. I even wrote to Santa, so he wouldn’t be confused With the size that I wanted, and how they would be used. They’d be brown and mostly worn, and that would be just fine. Because the person wearing them is what I have in mind. I woke up Christmas morning, there were no boots to see. Instead, a note from Santa is what was left for me. I know you asked for “boots in the house,” I know I let you down. But when I went to get the boots, this is what I found. An Airman standing at the watch, and many working hard. Several Airmen missing home while reading Christmas cards. Christmas decorations were everywhere I roamed. Seems they did their very best to make it feel like home. I found the boots you asked for, neatly tucked away. Inside there was a note for me, so I’d know just what to say. Santa, Please tell Mom I miss her, and all the family, too. And as much as I would like to be home, I’ve got a job to do. I brought with me my memories of all my Christmas’ past. That’s something that will get me through, a gift you cannot wrap. I figured you’d ask Santa to come and bring me home. I’m asking him to let you know, it’s ok, I’m not alone. My heart is always with you, but this is where I need to be. I have my Air Force family, and this year, they have me. Like those who came before us, we take turns standing guard. Knowing those we love are safe makes it not so hard. So don’t be mad at Santa, Mom, he obviously tried, But this year I am standing watch with my family at my side. He ended it with all his love, my eyes filled up with tears, That child that I had raised was so wise beyond his years. I have no boots for Christmas, underneath my Christmas tree. Because the one who’s wearing them is hard at work protecting me. God Bless all of our active Servicemen and women, Thank you for your vigilance, dedication, and service, And may you soon have your "Boots in the House".
  19. No, no, no, well, that's what Alla said, but I thought he was stuttering!
