Greetings Doc, Baylee, Mindy, PayPump, Mick, WRINC, Joelimo, Geezer, Wack, MadDogUSMC, Loree71, Full of Fun, Chasms, blkvette00, Psycho Sid, & Others:

Happy Monday! 62 degrees this morning and wet. 90% chance of rain today.

Got in a 20+ minute walk this morning; it was actually pretty pleasant outside. I will work from home at least this morning due to a medical appointment.

re: Panthers on Saturday - Yeah a score would have been good. I couldn't watch the game as I was calling the final volleyball match.

Speaking of football - Interesting outcomes on several fronts yesterday!

Off to start the day.

Have a great day all!

Good morning everyone,

Psycho Sid,

They're not much, just enough for the kids in the neighborhood. They won't come on until after Thanksgiving, and the tree will be put up then.

Doc, sounds like you had a really good day - and yes, I'm jealous.

And congrats on getting, and staying, down below 400 on the all-time list.

Wellum, I just came in from sunbathing in my rocking chair and enjoying the nice breeze and watching my happy HAPPY bonsai plants sitting out in the sun.

It is just amazingly beautiful out there today...perfect temps and a nice breeze. While I was there, a beautiful flutterby-Angel checked out my nose and flew on over to Peppy Sue's, as if to tell me she preferred dog-angels to practicing sinners anyday. Oh, well....just fulfilling my role in the "scheme of things." I know I'm not much in the eyes of most, but I do think He likes me --- and that's sufficient.

Hope things are going well for all of you.

Happy Sunday! 50 degrees and raining this morning. The rain has slowed at my house but the cat dishes were full of water so it obviously had also "poured" here earlier. I guess the 100% rain chance was realized this morning.

MadDog - indeed!

Interesting sports day yesterday: Noles survived again; Georgia State Football team held Clemson scoreless and just 138 yards of offense in the second half, losing the contest 28-0; the volleyball team lost to 21-9 App State in 3 sets. With their win on Friday night, they did clinch a post season tournament berth, the first since 2011. Tournament play for the volleyball team starts on Thanksgiving in San Marcos, TX.

Off to start the day.

Have a great day all!

WR, we are stuck with about the same temps, and it is messing up and creating a lot of slush. If we don't get rid of the s*** on the ground before it melts, there will be a layer of ice under everything, like last year.

Raining here and HOT! Well, actually, it's only about 68, but the dang humidity makes it really MISERABLE! FINALLY got my AC going after something like a five-hour power outage, something that almost always happens when we get rain.

Glad to see you're all in the normal range....whatever that is.

Greetings Doc, Baylee, Mindy, PayPump, Mick, WRINC, Joelimo, Geezer, Wack, MadDogUSMC, Loree71, Full of Fun, Chasms, blkvette00, Psycho Sid, & Others:

Happy Saturday! 37 degrees this morning. John in Chicago is getting rain today; I understand we're supposed to get some of that tomorrow ~ 100% chance.

It was nice to sleep in a little bit this morning; I awakened a few mins ago and am enjoying my coffee!

Training went well (all day) yesterday and of course traffic was atrocious at the end of the day trying to traverse the route to Georgia State around 4:30p. Thankfully I had my Waze app that redirected me off of the interstate highways and on to multiple surface streets where I only met a few tie-ups and got me to the Sports Arena in better time.

The Georgia State volleyball team made it exciting last night having to play 5 sets and playing back from what looked like near losses with scores (20-25, 25-23, 17-25, 25-22, and 16-14 ). This match win sealed their spot in the upcoming Sun Belt Tournament. It was nerve wracking but quite fun to call!

The Georgia State Men's basketball team, in their midst of their 10 day road trip blew a 12 point lead and wound up losing by 10 to Colorado State. It was broadcast online via the Mountain West Conference Internet feed and was hard to watch! The team is now 1-2 overall with 5 more road games to complete before they return on Dec 4th.

MadDog - Congrats to UK! We're just not playing good basketball right now or to the guys' potential. It was hard to watch it knowing the talent is there and they weren't using it!

Choco - I typically stayed out of the night life in Itaewon; being a 1SG, it wasn't a good thing to be seen in the "vill" bars by the troops because typically things didn't lead to positive outcomes for most soldiers in that environment. I consumed mine either out in the countryside after playing a concert for the "locals," at various hosts' homes, or in one of the clubs on post in Yongsan.

I have the final volleyball match of the season this evening at 6:00p versus Appalachian State during which we will recognize the two seniors.

Off to start the day.

Have a great day all!

Hate to break it to you, Choco, but there never was an actual beer by the name of P-38, named after one of the planes that cleaned Admiral Yamamoto's clock after a record-breaking flight to intercept his plane over the Pacific.

Among the TI's and others at Lackland during the fifties, the joke was that you'd sometimes "drink one and pee thirty-eight." In my case, at least, it often seemed just that way. So the joke came from the name of the plane and the fact that it often seemed like you peed a LOT more than you drank.

LOL LOL LOL, etc.

ANYway, I had enough of all of it back then.

Good night.

GR, I used to drink mine at the UN Club in Itaewon my first tour there and then spread myself around at the local bars outside Osan my second tour. Taught at both Seoul American High School and Osan American High School for a total of 15 years in the Republic. Married there, raised both sons there up to middle school.

OB was my staple. That P-38 beer was named after a twin engine, twin tail fighter in WWII and yes, I've not only heard of it, but swilled a little bit while my brother was stationed at Lackland in the 50s--I was a minor at the time, but the beer was all right. Not as good as the Korean--in country--version of OB, though.

Sid, I was talking about now--no snow now.

'Morning.

Couldn't sleep, so I lay there for a few hours, and now I'm up drinking coffee. Sure is good coffee, too. Few days ago, we got really tired of the cranky old "Mr. Coffee" thing, so I asked Kimbu to pick up a Black and Decker on her way home from work. Little more expensive than Mr. Coffee, but this thing makes GOOD coffee...and it doesn't take thirty minutes to do is, the way the old stopped-up MC did. Thing is, you can only douche those things so many times 'til they just hardly work at all....and they're junk to start with.

You guys enjoyed your "OB" beer, huh? Well, when I was a "HUT-TWO"er out at Lackland AFB back in the fifties, we'd all go to the Mugwum beer joint or the Copper Kettle drive-in or to some other fine establishment to drink "P-38" Beer.

Betcha' never heard of that, huh?

...but I'll wait to see if anybody has before I tell all about it.

LOL LOL LOL, etc.

Sure am glad to hear that, WR-INC...but remember that if/when ANYthing goes wrong, you have the Docputer Lifetime Gar-on-TEE!

LOL LOL LOL, etc., etc.

Greetings Doc, Baylee, Mindy, PayPump, Mick, WRINC, Joelimo, Geezer, Wack, MadDogUSMC, Loree71, Full of Fun, Chasms, blkvette00, Psycho Sid, & Others:

Happy Friday! 36 degrees this morning. U certainly enjoyed the warmer temperatures yesterday.

In early (again) today on account of my need to attend a training class. Accordingly, it will be another day of driving solo outside of my carpool and braving the traffic. Surprisingly, the traffic during the morning commute was actually reasonable once I got off I-75N and traveled the surface streets. Yesterday afternoon's commute was a different story!

Following training I have the penultimate volleyball match for Georgia State tonight at 6:00p and the final one tomorrow evening.

MadDog - indeed!

Choco - in my haste to do other items things last night I left out a word in my comment - it should have said "Choco - I had some "OB" beer when stationed in Yongsan - pretty *-good-* local beer!"

Off to breakfast and start to the day.

Have a great day all!

Good evening, all. Been really busy today with a 'puter I bought off eBay, thinking I was getting a pretty good deal. Oh, well..win some, lose some sleep making a winner out of a loser --- for as we speak, the nasty little sucker is dancing, singing and SHOUTING! Now the ONLY thing even a little bad about is the fact that apparently some kid smeared it with PB & J or something and tried to "fix" it. The keyboard was "woggly" and not properly inserted, and there were at LEAST seven or eight screws missing here and there.

Oh, well, it's got an i5 quad-core processor and 6 gigs of memory in it, and as soon as get the new keyboard and hard drive and caddy for it, it'll go back up on eBay. Well...I still haven't been able to figure out why the dadgum mouse pad won't work, but I'll get 'er done after the new keyboard comes. I THINK it has to do with that.

Fun! Fun! Fun!

Then tomorrow I've got the part I need for a Toshiba coming in, so maybe I can get THAT on eBay, too, and get back a little of the cash I've been spending on "good junk."

Sure do love y'all...take care...I GOTTA sleep for a change.

Geez, TO gets a bit of lake-effect weather from Lake Ontario, but most of the problems go to a ways east of us, on the way to Kingston N of the lake, and whatever part of NYS is east --Watertown and that area. Buffalo gets its messy weather off Lake Erie, and it is very localized. It can be sunny in Hamilton clouded over in Niagara-on-the-Lake, and a total mess in Biffalo. Then if you keep on driving south, the process is reversed.

Geez, the last news says that the game will be cancelled because they are expecting another couple of FEET of white stuff before Sunday, and there will be no crews available to clear those roads.

Sid, I agree with both doc and WR about your profiles, and your chances. But you could try the cat-lover angle!

A great deal came my way last evening - on the news. Travel to Buffalo and get paid ten bucks an hours to risk a heart attack shoveling snow at the Buffalo Bills stadium PLUS get a ticket to watch the Bills play the Jets on Sunday. First off, shoveling, no matter how much it pays, isn't something I'd want to do as a job. Second, the JETS????

Sid, give it up. Go out to the barn and find yourself a nice warm raccoon.

Greetings Doc, Baylee, Mindy, PayPump, Mick, WRINC, Joelimo, Geezer, Wack, MadDogUSMC, Loree71, Full of Fun, Chasms, blkvette00, Psycho Sid, & Others:

Happy Thursday! 31 degrees this morning.

In early today due to a busy day with an early morning meeting.

MadDog - true enough; it's important to have bench strength, but when the bench is nearly another starting 5, that will be tough for most teams to deal with.

I'm off tonight, but have two more volleyball matches (this Sat and Sun) and one more home football game on Nov 29th. Basketball returns home on Dec. 4th so once football is complete, I'll be down to one sport for a while.

Off to it.

Have a great day all!
