Good afternoon!

WR, sounds to me like geez is angling to take over a franchise. Or is there a competetor that sells something else in the east?

Definitely still winter here. My long-term plan is to get some s***shoes to try out next year, but I've never used them.

geezer,

I don't know what you're talking about. We did have a guy out of Buffalo, but he retired years ago, and I've been told he died.

WR, so there's someone else with the Northeast's WondeRoast franchise?

Sub hyper Yankee, Bone? I guess that's right. After I retired I became less hyper. Heck, if I were in Minnesota and wanted to get to the northeast, I'd head north and sneak in via Montreal.

yeah right geezer...He'd have to take an amphibious landing craft across the Big Pond to get to your house.
and, he'd have to deal with the Bone Border Patrol(BBP) on the east shore of the Big Pond...lol

No one can walk into the state of Michigan without proper papers. We have high standards here for people like you -- ya sub hyper Yankee.

Happy Thursday! 67 degrees this morning and evidence of rain overnight. It's projected to turn cold (again) here today with a pretty significant temperature shift - fun times. I guess it's not as bad as states/places up north who are forecasted to received more "white stuff!"

In early again as I have to been at 7:00am this morning in preparation for my speaking engagement at the CDC's 2015 Project Management Summit. I speaking on Stakeholder Engagement and Management.

Georgia State basketball plays tonight at UL Monroe.

Off to start the day.

BTW, do you have a hydroelectric dam on the creek in your backyard?

Howdy Mininana, keep geezer in-line..lol...Speaking of geezer where is that old fart?

Good morning! Well, at least our hydro is still on . . . .

Sid, three words: Montreal Smoked Meat. Or to be different, can you get peameal bacon?

Joe, if you still can't get the site's time corrected, you can just stay logged in to two different cities. One for posting prices and the other for comments - pick a place that has the correct time for where you are. And don't feel too bad -- Newfoundland always has their time zone half an hour off everyone else's!

Dod, FoF is correct -- just suck it up and move those feet! Pretend that they are working the gas and brake pedals if that helps to get you motivated!

Good morning....I guess.

Got a "catch" in the right side of my back just below the right shoulder blade that just keeps ON "grabbing" me. Hurts like HADES for a couple seconds, and I can't seem to find....yep, leaning forward with elbows on my desk while typing is doing the trick for now. What a BEE-atch!

FOF, it looks really professional..something to be proud of. Sure wish I could get your guy in here to take care of that dadgum walk-in tub I've had out in the garage for five years. Mama sure could use that thing. Guess with my deteriorating physical fortunes, I'll need it too, now.

Well, at least I've never totaled one, Blo. But, yeah, I do whine about not being able to drive. Thank God for Amazon, though! I needed a replacement tube for my shower wand and had it in two days with their "Prime."

Now I'm waiting for "Prime Plus" --- I figure sooner or later I can order a "Hot and Ready Pizza!"

Whatcha'think? LOL LOL LOL, etc.

Y'all get out there and make money....one of these days I'm going to call for donations so I can fly to visit each of you.

Either that, or we could just all gather somewhere on the Franch Riviera and let Geezer pick up the tab.

LOL LOL LOL, etc.

Y'all scooz me...I gotta go practice my Franch:

Doc didnt the other half do a great job, the crown molding looks fantastic and better than our friends who had it done professionally, it did take him a long while to get it all done, but he did gut the entire thing down to the studs, and re subfloored as well.

next job is to take out the popcorn ceilings in the rest of the house, this is the 3rd room he has done this too and it makes such a difference especially with putting up the crown molding.

hope you are feeling chipper today, remember those exercises are to get you better, and keep you around a lot longer so suck it up LOL

Doc, you sound just like Peeps during one of his many convalescing periods. NO CAR! CAN'T DRIVE! BOO HOO!!! But in his case, it was because he kept totaling his cars!

Corned beef on Jewish rye? Sounds like moderate to severe heartburn! :-)

Doc, nothing beats New York, Chicago or Detroit kosher corn beef, or pastrami, on fresh-baked rye bread..

Along with a couple slices of Swiss cheese, fresh coleslaw and Russian dressing.

Fresh pickles too..!

"Corned beef on Jewish rye bread"? Sounds good. Nothing else does. Too bad I can't get one around here somewhere. One trouble is I CAN'T DRIVE --- DAMMIT!

Didn't realize how much this being an "invalid" would get to me, but it damned-sure does.

You know what "invalid" really means, right?

I'M NOT A VALID HUMAN BEING --- I'M AN INVALID, AND I CAN'T DRIVE AND I HAVE TO HAVE SOME TWERP COME TELL ME HOW TO WIPE MY BUTT AND TO PUSH A BOX OF ROCKS AROUND ON A TABLE CLOCKWISE TEN TIMES, THEN COUNTERCLOCKWISE TEN TIMES, THEN PICK UP LEFT FOOT TEN TIMES, THEN RIGHT FOOT TEN TIMES....

F___ this! Tomorrow I'm going to call some people and tell them to get something DONE so I can be "VALID" again or else I'm going to blow a fuse!

Wonder if they'd consider me "valid" if I throw their damned box of rocks at 'em?

Our game producer son yesterday added to the list of celebrities our family has come in direct contact with. Floyd "Money" Mayweather, a prize fighter of some note, is doing his training here in Sin City for the FIGHT OF THE CENTURY on May 2. Sonny went down with his boss to check out the advertising for a game they are producing and he met the whole Mayweather crew.
Wife met Bill Clinton, told Helmut Kohl where the bathroom was and poured weal American coffee for Prince Andrew of England.
Second son has interviewed for a job with HUSTLER magazineith Larry Flynt--a publisher who has been quite a name in the porn industry.
Me? I met Wacky and Loree once. My only claim to celebrity fame.
