    I hope one day to be lucky enough to have one of these communist protesting bastards show up at my house to “intimidate” me. I really do.

    This is the bestest new poat here all day!!!

    1. Yes. It is.

    2. I got up early to make breakfast. Hardboiled eggs, chopped up over fresh buttermilk biscuits, and freshly made from a packet sausage gravy, with a big mug of green tea.

    3. I watched this last night:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_oRg-scSGXM
    Yes, almost no story at all, but her movies were never going to be considered high drama. They were love letters to the viewers’ eyes. The trailer doesn’t do it justice. The TCM restoration of her films have been spectacular. Colors that jump into your lap and say “HELLO!”, sometimes some breathtaking scenery, some of it lost to history, talented co-stars who brought witty banter, slapstick, drama, and music, such as Keenan Wynn, Red Skelton, Van Johnson, Ricardo Montalban, and Howard Keel.

    These movies won’t make you smarter. They don’t inspire deep thought. But if you don’t find yourself smiling, at least for a minute or too, then your troubles are dire indeed.

    Hooray, Dick! I, of course, miss both my parents … but I REALLY miss my Dad.

  5. Dick February 20, 2011 at 12:04 pm #

    Ahhh…. The good old days are coming back.

    Clint, my dad’s been living on borrowed time for the past six or seven years.
    I hang out with him as often as I can now.

  7. clintbird February 20, 2011 at 12:06 pm #

    How come none of that leftist shit happens around my place? *Thinks about moving to Berkley … to join the ‘fun’*

  8. Dick February 20, 2011 at 12:11 pm #

    If it ever happened around here, you’d see a bunch a rednecks climb out of their pickups and start breaking things.

  9. Dick February 20, 2011 at 12:27 pm #

    And why wasn’t I around when the nekkid broads were out showing off their goods?

  10. roamingfirehydrant February 20, 2011 at 2:15 pm #

    Wow, I guessed wrong on the author of this poat.

  11. Dick February 20, 2011 at 2:28 pm #

    Okay, Roamy. Who were ya betting on?

  12. roamingfirehydrant February 20, 2011 at 2:33 pm #

    You, Dick! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Moving furniture around yesterday inspired some more spring cleaning (well, that and the FBI guy coming around on Tuesday….). It’s been over two years since the place got a good cleaning, so there’s a lot of junk covering a lot of dust and pet hair.

    While the spirit is willing, the flesh is (literally) weak – I’m just now starting to realize the limitations of my stamina with this MG. And it sucks. Mostly because I LOOK perfectly fine, so nobody – myself included – THINKS there’s anything wrong.

    So I’m sitting here taking a break, throwing myself a pity party. Anyone else wanna jump in and feel sorry for themself? There’s plenty of room in the pool….

  15. clintbird February 20, 2011 at 3:13 pm #

    Pity parties are a waste of time. *Farts.*

  16. Dick February 20, 2011 at 3:20 pm #

    Anyone else wanna jump in and feel sorry for themself?

    Homey don’t play dat shit.

  17. Teresa in Fort Worth, TX February 20, 2011 at 3:28 pm #

    FTR, my pity parties never last long – I just take a break to shake my fist at the world and drink a nice cold beverage. If available, I also indulge in chocolate….

  18. roamingfirehydrant February 20, 2011 at 3:31 pm #

    Iโ€™m just now starting to realize the limitations of my stamina with this MG. And it sucks.

    Yep. You do some work, rest for a while, do some more, rest a while. I start out with a list of things I need to do, and if I get any at all done, it’s a good day.

  19. Dick February 20, 2011 at 3:34 pm #

    I wrap my joints, grab a coke, pop some Tylenol and get back to the job.

  20. LC Aggie Sith February 20, 2011 at 3:38 pm #

    Great poat.

    Thanks for the advice on the last poat.

    *runs nekkid through poat*

  21. Dick February 20, 2011 at 3:40 pm #

    Yea me!!!! I saw Aggie run through nekkid!
    Quite perky I might add.

  22. LC Aggie Sith February 20, 2011 at 3:43 pm #

    HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

    I always am ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Taking a break from the girl scout stuff. Had fun at the scrapbooking class, too. I have a feeling this evening is going to suck, seeing as I am in charge of putting the booth together.

  23. Teresa in Fort Worth, TX February 20, 2011 at 3:45 pm #

    Roamy, I think you and I have similar energy issues, albeit for different reasons. I do the same thing – start off the day with good intentions, but my body reminds me quite forcefully that YOU.WILL.NOT.DO.THAT.

    The scary thing is that I don’t often know that I’ve overdone until after the fact. And I’ve been told that if I have a “Myasthenic Crisis”, it is an emergency situation that CANNOT be ignored. I had a taste of what one feels like the other night, and it was scary.

    I was telling a friend Friday night that I now understand what asthmatics feel like when they can’t catch a breath; they can oftentimes make things better with an inhaler, but with MG, it isn’t that there isn’t enough air in the lungs, it’s that the muscles that surround the lungs can’t work.

    I’m still on the learning curve.

    But I understand what you were talking about the other day Roamy, about waking up and wondering if “this” is your new normal….

  24. Dick February 20, 2011 at 3:45 pm #

    Went and looked at a job this morning. This afternoon I’m being lazy.

  25. Teresa in Fort Worth, TX February 20, 2011 at 3:46 pm #

    Daughter #3 brought me all of the Mr. Goodbars she didn’t want.

    Yay, me!

    Chocolate makes everything better….

  26. Dick February 20, 2011 at 3:47 pm #

    Mr Goodbars rule.

  27. Teresa in Fort Worth, TX February 20, 2011 at 3:48 pm #

    I wrap my joints…

    I assume you mean your knees, ankles, elbows, etc., and not the other kind of joints?

    ‘Cuz when I read that the first time….

  28. roamingfirehydrant February 20, 2011 at 3:49 pm #

    I was able to drive Rocketboy to volunteer at the K of C breakfast, so it’s a good day.

  29. Dick February 20, 2011 at 3:50 pm #

    My right elbow mostly, Teresa.
    Most days, it hurts to pick up a cup of coffee right handed.

  30. Teresa in Fort Worth, TX February 20, 2011 at 3:51 pm #

    Our old dog is taking a nap.
    Her legs are twitching, and she is snoring.

    Mr. TiFW is just snoring….

  31. LC Aggie Sith February 20, 2011 at 3:51 pm #

    I hope Teresa and Roamy get to feeling better.

    Chocolate makes everything betterโ€ฆ

    *whimper*

  32. Teresa in Fort Worth, TX February 20, 2011 at 3:53 pm #

    Sucks to get old, huh, Dick?
    The past few years I’ve been feeling aches in places I didn’t even know were there when I was a spry young thing!

  33. Dick February 20, 2011 at 3:53 pm #

    You taking it easy today, Roamy?
    Ya should be.

  34. Dick February 20, 2011 at 3:54 pm #

    Sucks to get old, huh, Dick?

    That’s what people keep telling me, but I find it more of an adventure.

  35. LC Aggie Sith February 20, 2011 at 3:55 pm #

    Good attitude, Dick. Life is an adventure, even when doing something as simple as making coffee every morning ๐Ÿ˜‰

  36. Dick February 20, 2011 at 3:59 pm #

    Ya just have to look at things a bit differently sometimes.
    It’s either that or get depressed, and we all should remember that depression is nothing more than misplaced anger without any real enthusiasm.

  37. roamingfirehydrant February 20, 2011 at 4:01 pm #

    Dick, yes and no. This morning, I dropped off Rocketboy for his volunteer work, went to church, came back and had an awesome K of C breakfast with the family, waved them off to church, picked up some groceries, came home and put away the groceries by myself (three trips up the stairs carrying stuff). Now I’m resting.

    I never thought I’d get to the point where carrying my own groceries was a point of pride.

  38. Dick February 20, 2011 at 4:07 pm #

    Don’t push too hard, Roamy, whatever ya do. Those hydraulics you’re packing probably don’t react well to excess pressure.

  39. roamingfirehydrant February 20, 2011 at 4:16 pm #

    It’s the first day I’ve felt well enough to drive since Tuesday. I think I’m gettin accustomed to the new meds. Heartrate is right at 100, so that’s an improvement, too.

  40. LC Aggie Sith February 20, 2011 at 4:23 pm #

    Ok, time for me to get the stuff done and packed up. Then I get to put a tog on little one. Then I get to pray this goes well.

    *give Roamy and Teresa hugs*

    *gooses Dick*

  41. LC Aggie Sith February 20, 2011 at 4:23 pm #

    Put a TOGA on little one.

    *needs a drink*

  42. roamingfirehydrant February 20, 2011 at 4:24 pm #

    **hands Aggie a bottle of wine

  43. Dick February 20, 2011 at 4:26 pm #

    I’m gonna have to drive this road.

    Aggie, I do hope that was your finger.
    Roamy, glad things seem to be evening out for ya.

    FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU…….

    I NEED A DRINK.

  48. Dick February 20, 2011 at 10:06 pm #

    Well, get one.

  49. LC Aggie Sith February 20, 2011 at 10:10 pm #

    Got one, Dick.

    Aaaaahhhhh…….

  50. roamingfirehydrant February 20, 2011 at 10:11 pm #

    I had a glass of wine with dinner, and it was not nearly enough

  51. LC Aggie Sith February 20, 2011 at 10:13 pm #

    I don’t think one will be enough for me, either, Roamy.

    Better pace myself…

  52. Dick February 20, 2011 at 10:15 pm #

    I had a couple of toddy’s and I’m done for the night.
    Watched old James Bond flicks and that was more than enough excitement.

  53. roamingfirehydrant February 20, 2011 at 10:18 pm #

    I watched a couple of old Tyrone Power movies.

  54. LC Aggie Sith February 20, 2011 at 10:19 pm #

    Which Bond flicks?

    I feel like watching From Russia With Love.

  55. Dick February 20, 2011 at 10:22 pm #

    We did The Man With The Golden Gun.
    Wanted to watch Live and Let Die, but the download speeds sucked.

  56. LC Aggie Sith February 20, 2011 at 10:23 pm #

    Still, can’t go wrong with Christopher Lee.

  57. Dick February 20, 2011 at 10:24 pm #

    Tyrone had some good stuff in the day.
    I always enjoy Bogart flicks cause of the cheese level.

  58. Dick February 20, 2011 at 10:25 pm #

    For some odd reason *hands over man card in advance* I feel this urge to watch Grease and South Pacific.

  59. roamingfirehydrant February 20, 2011 at 10:26 pm #

    I love The African Queen.

    Mr. Allnut: Rosie, Rosie!!
    Rosie: Charlie! Charlie!!
    Mr. Allnut: Rosie, Rosie!!!
    Nazi: Who is that woman!
    Mr. Allnut: I dunno.

  60. LC Aggie Sith February 20, 2011 at 10:27 pm #

    Grease is not a chick flick, really, and it and
    South Pacific have hawt wimmins.

    *hands man card back*

  61. Dick February 20, 2011 at 10:27 pm #

    That was a classic ending.

  62. roamingfirehydrant February 20, 2011 at 10:29 pm #

    OOoh, South Pacific. I could go for that.

  63. Dick February 20, 2011 at 10:30 pm #

    Starting a big restoration gig in the morning, which should take a while.
    You ladies have a wonderful evening.

    G’night

  64. LC Aggie Sith February 20, 2011 at 10:30 pm #

    G’night, Dick!

  65. roamingfirehydrant February 20, 2011 at 10:34 pm #

    Good night, Dick.

  66. roamingfirehydrant February 20, 2011 at 10:37 pm #

    Aggie, let’s go give BiW a group hug on the new poat.

  67. clintbird February 20, 2011 at 10:43 pm #

    South Pacific also has terrific music!

  68. clintbird February 20, 2011 at 10:44 pm #

    “Good night, dick.”

    One of the last things I say every night just prior to sleep onset …

  69. clintbird February 20, 2011 at 10:44 pm #

    *snicker.*
