    Sleep abandoned me far too early today. I might make it to work at 8, but I’m not happy about it.

  4. Car in February 25, 2011 at 7:34 am #

    Oh my lord. what HAPPENED?

  5. Car in February 25, 2011 at 7:41 am #

    Honestly, I wander away for a workout and an evening with my brats, and see you’ve turned this place into a WHOREHOUSE.

    Honestly.

    But the guy at the bar looks like he’s got a big … gun.

  6. Dick February 25, 2011 at 7:49 am #

    Oh my lord. what HAPPENED?

    Carin likes it!

    *I wonder if they serve Whore D’oeuvres in this joint?*

  8. LC Aggie Sith February 25, 2011 at 8:16 am #

    Chris Isaak FTW!!!

    Yes, GML, they do serve whore d’oeuvres here.

    Carin, don’t freak, This here is a classy whorehouse. Just look at the turned legs on that table.

  9. Dick February 25, 2011 at 8:18 am #

    This here is a classy whorehouse. Just look at the turned legs on that table.

    Yeah, Carin. We don’t even spit on the floor around here.
    Okay, that’s a lie, but you know what I mean.

    hey CBird, thanks for the welcome last night!

    Same to you Aggie, Dick, BiW, et al. A little bird tipped me off to the joint – nice place you got here!

  12. LC Aggie Sith February 25, 2011 at 8:46 am #

    CB, that sounds absolutely divine!!

    A little bird tipped me off to the joint

    *preens feathers*

    Sure is a nice whorehouse, isn’t it?

  13. clintbird February 25, 2011 at 8:46 am #

    In no way, does this surprise me: http://is.gd/Q094YE

  14. LC Aggie Sith February 25, 2011 at 8:47 am #

    CB, can you use ground sausage instead?

  15. GMLand February 25, 2011 at 8:51 am #

    Vera nice, indeed!

  16. clintbird February 25, 2011 at 8:52 am #

    Possibly moldy but funny nevertheless:

    These are actual comments made on students’ report cards by teachers in the New York City public school system. All teachers were reprimanded (but, boy, are these funny!)

    1. Since my last report, your child has reached rock bottom and has started to dig.

    2. I would not allow this student to breed.

    3. Your child has delusions of adequacy.

    4. Your son is depriving a village somewhere of an idiot. (my favorite…)

    5. Your son sets low personal standards and then consistently fails to achieve them.

    6. The student has a ‘full six-pack’ but lacks the plastic thing to hold it all together.

    7. This child has been working with glue too much.

    8. When your daughter’s IQ reaches 50, she should sell.

    9. The gates are down, the lights are flashing, but the train isn’t coming..

    10. If this student were any more stupid, he’d have to be watered twice a week.

    11. It’s impossible to believe the sperm that created this child beat out 1,000,000 others.

    12. The wheel is turning but the hamster is definitely dead.

    These are actual comments made by 16 Police Officers. The comments were taken off actual police car videos around the country:

    1. “You know, stop lights don’t come any redder than the one you just went through.”

    2. “Relax, the handcuffs are tight because they’re new. They’ll stretch after you wear them a while.”

    3. “If you take your hands off the car, I’ll make your birth certificate a worthless document.”

    4. “If you run, you’ll only go to jail tired.”

    5. “Can you run faster than 1200 feet per second? Because that’s the speed of the bullet that’ll be chasing you.” (LOVE IT)

    6. “You don’t know how fast you were going? I guess that means I can write anything I want to on the ticket, huh?” (MY FAVORITE)

    7. “Yes, sir, you can talk to the shift supervisor, but I don’t think it will help. Oh, did I mention that I’m the shift supervisor?”

    8 “Warning! You want a warning? O.K, I’m warning you not to do that again or I’ll give you another ticket.”

    9. “The answer to this last question will determine whether you are drunk or not. Was Mickey Mouse a cat or a dog?”

    10. “Fair? You want me to be fair? Listen, fair is a place where you go to ride on rides, eat cotton candy and corn dogs and step in monkey poop.”

    11. “Yeah, we have a quota. Two more tickets and my wife gets a toaster oven.”

    12. “In God we trust; all others we run through NCIC.” (National Crime Information Center)

    13. “Just how big were those ‘two beers’ you say you had?”

    14. “No sir, we don’t have quotas anymore. We used to, but now we’re allowed to write as many tickets as we can.”

    15. “I’m glad to hear that the Chief (of Police) is a personal friend of yours. So you know someone who can post your bail.”

    AND THE WINNER IS….

    16. “You didn’t think we give pretty women tickets? You’re right, we don’t.. Sign here.”

  17. clintbird February 25, 2011 at 8:53 am #

    Yes, Aggie, that would work just fine.

  18. Teresa in Fort Worth, TX February 25, 2011 at 8:57 am #

    The wallpaper is a definite keeper – matches this group to a “T”.

    The ladies don’t look quite the same in the harsh light of day, however….

    Clint, thanks for the laughs this morning (and the recipe, too!).

    GML, good to see ya, buddy!

  19. GMLand February 25, 2011 at 9:01 am #

  23. Car in February 25, 2011 at 9:22 am #

    Speaking of whores in the light of day …

    I toured the Henry Ford Mansion in Grosse Pointe. Which. Amazing. Anyway. Mrs. Ford refused to update the dining room, because she thought women looked better by candle light. I thought that was wonderful.

    Oh, and her dressing room? Hand painted wall paper. It was really cool.

    (the house was a Cotswald cottage).

  24. Car in February 25, 2011 at 9:23 am #

    The dining room electricity, I should say.

  25. roamingfirehydrant February 25, 2011 at 9:27 am #

    Cheekier look this morning. Beats the heck out of paisley.

  26. LC Aggie Sith February 25, 2011 at 9:29 am #

    The paisley was ghastly, I’ll admit.

    I should serve dinner by candlelight more often.

  27. Jay in Ames February 25, 2011 at 9:31 am #

    Hand painted wall paper. It was really cool.

    Why not paint the wall?

  28. Car in February 25, 2011 at 9:41 am #

    I guess because an artist made it elsewhere. I don’t know. It was really beautiful.

    Oh, no:

    Victoria Hiley is a mother who is so passionate about breast feeding that she has had her milk turned into ice-cream at Icecreamists, a parlour in Covent Garden. . . . Matt O’Connor, 44, who runs Icecreamists, blends the breast milk with Madagascan vanilla pods and lemon zest, which is then freshly churned.
    He said he was confident his £14 Baby Gaga would go down a treat with customers.
    ‘No one’s done anything interesting with ice-cream in the last hundred years,’ he said.
    ‘Some people will hear about it and go, yuck! But actually it’s pure, organic, free range and totally natural.’

  32. Jazz February 25, 2011 at 9:47 am #

    I love free-range titties.

  33. Car in February 25, 2011 at 9:47 am #

    You know, I’m about as pro-breastfeeding as can be, but yuck.

    People like that make people like me look bad.

  34. Dick February 25, 2011 at 9:55 am #

    I’ve been known to do a lot of weird things (seriously weird, m’kay? Like you have no fucking idea) but I’m out on the breast milk ice cream, unless there’s some hot fudge sauce handy, or caramel, or peaches.
    Okay, I lied again. I’m in. Give me a bowl.

  35. Jay in Ames February 25, 2011 at 9:56 am #

    Okay, I lied again. I’m in. Give me a bowl.

    I prefer the original container. I don’t even want the milk, or the ice cream!

    I should serve dinner by candlelight more often.

    I remember when the TiFW kidlets were MUCH younger, that one way to make dinnertime less noisy was to serve dinner by candlelight. Something about the dark makes kids (adults, too) quieter and less rambunctious.

    Never could get the stars to align in order to try that at the TiFW household; of course, down here closer to the equator, the sun shines MUCH later than it does up north, so I’m not sure it would have worked all that well anyway….

  38. Teresa in Fort Worth, TX February 25, 2011 at 10:28 am #

    I should say that “I read somewhere” about that stuff…

  39. Teresa in Fort Worth, TX February 25, 2011 at 10:44 am #

    Why not paint the wall?

    *raises hand in air, says, “Oooh, oooh, oooh – I know! I know”*

    We live in a house that was built in 1907, and ALL of the rooms still had the old-timey wallpaper “structure” in all of the rooms, even the ones that had sheet rock in them (previous owners just put the sheet rock up over the wallpaper). By that, I mean that successive owners just pasted contemporary wallpaper over what was originally there.

    Way back before there was such a thing as sheet rock – and people still used plaster on their walls to keep out the cold – most houses had ship-lap siding (or, in the case of plaster, lath) on their interior walls.

    In our house, every interior wall is floor-to-ceiling Grade C 1×12 wood (thus giving the lie to my father’s proclamation that the house is forever in imminent danger of collapsing around us). When we moved in, EVERY room had cheesecloth stretched across the walls (and the ceilings, too), with wallpaper attached to it.

    Over the years, instead of replacing this system (which is what I assume was done way back when), different owners had “added” to it, to the point that when we bought the house, most of the “wallpaper” wasn’t actually stuck to the walls – rather, the cheesecloth was sagging under the weight of all of the layers.

    We’ve redone most of the rooms, tearing off the wallpaper – and the decades of dust underneath – leaving the ship-lap intact (unlike a lot of folks in the neighborhood), and installing sheet rock over the boards. The nice thing is, we NEVER have to worry about finding the “right” place to hang a picture….

    Well, as I understand it, WZ’s headline isn’t exactly accurate. Pelosi’s daughter offered the amendments after consulting with her mother. Splitting hairs, I know, but I’d prefer to be known for scrupulous honesty rather than taking even minor liberties with the truth.

    Do it! It’s Friday.

    Yep, PA. The house looks like total crap, but the cock in the frontyard… That’s a big selling point.

  103. PattyAnn February 25, 2011 at 5:17 pm #

    “To the person who keeps stepping on my hands:”

    Huh?

  104. Blackiswhite, Imperial Consigliere February 25, 2011 at 5:20 pm #

    Huh?

    It’s that bastard, Arthur. Arthur Itis.

    The weather and the strain on my fingers yesterday invited him for one of his special visits.

  105. LC Aggie Sith February 25, 2011 at 5:21 pm #

    *looks down at the floor*

    *doesn’t see BisW’s hands*

    Okie dokie…

    Dick, every house needs a cock.

  106. Teresa in Fort Worth, TX February 25, 2011 at 5:22 pm #

    $180K for 1344 sq.ft.?

    I guess it’s true what they say about Texas real estate prices….

  107. LC Aggie Sith February 25, 2011 at 5:23 pm #

    Awww, sorry to hear that, BisW. My pinkie has been ornery too, and the weather has been stable, so I have no idea why my arthritis is acting up.

  108. Blackiswhite, Imperial Consigliere February 25, 2011 at 5:23 pm #

    Dick, every Hooooooooorhouse needs a cock.

    FIFY.

  109. LC Aggie Sith February 25, 2011 at 5:24 pm #

    Teresa, my 1377 sq ft home in Alamo Heights was valued at over $200K.

    It’s insane in certain areas.

  110. GMLand February 25, 2011 at 5:27 pm #

    let me introduce you guys to Williamson County Tennessee real estate….

  111. Dick February 25, 2011 at 5:27 pm #

    Teresa, the closer ya get to the bay or beach up there and the prices freaking skyrocket well past insanity.

    We’ll probably end up with an old farmhouse five to ten miles off the beach. Those with some acreage seem to be reasonable.

  112. PattyAnn February 25, 2011 at 5:30 pm #

    Guy, how are you addressing the geriatric market?

  113. Blackiswhite, Imperial Consigliere February 25, 2011 at 5:32 pm #

    Guy, how are you addressing the geriatric market?

    By speaking slowly and loudly?

  114. Blackiswhite, Imperial Consigliere February 25, 2011 at 5:34 pm #

    Offering prunes and a supervised nap time?

  115. GMLand February 25, 2011 at 5:34 pm #

    the empty nester market has been in play for about 5-6 years and I have developed some product specifically targeted to it.

  116. Blackiswhite, Imperial Consigliere February 25, 2011 at 5:35 pm #

    Single level homes with few or no stairs and wider than avarage doorways?

  117. LC Aggie Sith February 25, 2011 at 5:36 pm #

    Hubby wants to see your work in that area.

    I told him NO LAKE.

    He said “We’ll see”.

    Which means, FUUUUUUUUUUUUU…….

    For me 😉

  118. PattyAnn February 25, 2011 at 5:48 pm #

    Drawers. For everything. No floor cabinets that you need to get down on your hands and knees and tilt your head just right to get what you need. Big showers with a sitting bench and hand held sprayers (SYWM). Toilets a few inches higher than the norm ’cause it’s easier to get up from when the arthritis in your back/hips aren’t helping you.

  119. PattyAnn February 25, 2011 at 5:49 pm #

    Not just empty nesters. Worn out empty nesters that will not go to a “home”.

  120. PattyAnn February 25, 2011 at 5:55 pm #

    Too maudlin?

  121. Dick February 25, 2011 at 5:58 pm #

    All I want is three to five acres so I can peacefully murder Bambi in my own backyard, and hide bodies.

  122. LC Aggie Sith February 25, 2011 at 6:00 pm #

    Big showers with a sitting bench and hand held sprayers (SYWM).

    Word.

    Whaaaa…??

  123. Dick February 25, 2011 at 6:01 pm #

    Big showers are very cool, but are a major pia.

  124. Blackiswhite, Imperial Consigliere February 25, 2011 at 6:03 pm #

    Big showers with a sitting bench and hand held sprayers (SYWM).

    Glass tile, natural light, multiple big ass showerheads, and endless hot water.

    Crap, who needs Cialis? Four hours? Ha! Child’s play.

  125. MCPO Airdale February 25, 2011 at 6:13 pm #

    Patty Ann – Our condo in PA has half of that stuff. Most importantly, it has a master suite on the first floor so my knees don’t start the day in agony.

  126. Teresa in Fort Worth, TX February 25, 2011 at 6:16 pm #

    One of the most embarassing OMG!!!!! moments came when I heard a sound of distress coming from the girls’ bathroom one day several years ago. I’ve never shut a door so fast in all my life!

    Fortunately, with it being a clawfoot tub, said girl’s ears were underwater, and she never knew I saw that.

    It sure did explain all those times the water came sloshing through the wooden floor down into the kitchen below, though….

  127. Dick February 25, 2011 at 6:21 pm #

    Teresa… Wow…
    I’m sooo glad my mom never blogged.

  128. LC Aggie Sith February 25, 2011 at 6:22 pm #

    *reads Teresa’s comment*

    *eyes pop out of head*

  129. Dick February 25, 2011 at 6:23 pm #

    Teresa’s a gamer.

  130. PattyAnn February 25, 2011 at 6:35 pm #

    Sounds like a smart home, MCPO.

    Teresa, I hope you shut that door Loud.

    BiW, we need a Roman-type bath in this joint!

    Anybody wonder who the new Mel Gibson is?
    http://is.gd/bUTyYH

  131. LC Aggie Sith February 25, 2011 at 6:37 pm #

    Anybody wonder who the new Mel Gibson is?

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!

  132. Teresa in Fort Worth, TX February 25, 2011 at 6:44 pm #

    I’m sooo glad my mom never blogged.
    Nah, we don’t hang out at the same sites.

    Besides, as many “intimate details” of their lives that they share with the world on FB, I figure if they ever stumble onto these less-travelled sites and read what I’ve written, it’s just payback….

    Teresa, I hope you shut that door Loud.
    The way I looked at it at the time, at least she wasn’t using some guy. This is the same kid who fashioned her own “toys” from wooden dowels and duct tape (I wouldn’t have known about these, but Rebecca went “exploring” in sister’s room).

    My mother has just laughed and laughed at my various “discoveries”….

  133. PattyAnn February 25, 2011 at 6:47 pm #

    Wooden dowels and duct tape.

    *speechless

  134. Dick February 25, 2011 at 6:48 pm #

    This is the same kid who fashioned her own “toys” from wooden dowels and duct tape

    Teresa, you crack me up, and that ain’t easy.

  135. LC Aggie Sith February 25, 2011 at 6:48 pm #

    *picks jaw off the floor*

  136. Dick February 25, 2011 at 6:50 pm #

    You should’ve bought her a good quality lathe for a birthday present.

  137. PattyAnn February 25, 2011 at 6:56 pm #

    I think she needs a 6 piston hammer, Dick.

  138. LC Aggie Sith February 25, 2011 at 6:57 pm #

    Ok, I added this to the H&B blogroll.

    ArmedGeek approves of this blog 😀

  139. MCPO Airdale February 25, 2011 at 6:59 pm #

    “MOM!! I need some 100 grit sandpaper!”

  140. roamingfirehydrant February 25, 2011 at 6:59 pm #

    I’m speechless, too.

  141. Dick February 25, 2011 at 7:02 pm #

    Come on, Roamy! Toss in some science on this conversation.

    And Chief, I know you ain’t speechless.

  142. Teresa in Fort Worth, TX February 25, 2011 at 7:02 pm #

    Yeah, I had to have a “talk” with her about how she could do some serious internal damage with that stuff. Since Rebecca was the one who found it, I also got to tell her that she needed to find a better place to hide her stuff.

    Dick, I laugh about it now, but I was a WRECK every time something like this happened (and Mr. TiFW has a lathe, but I doubt he would have been willing to help her fashion anything…).

    As I said, my mother was NO help whatsoever – after her initial gasps, I had to hold the phone away from my ear because of the laughter.

    And Aggie, I have bruises in my eye sockets and on the bottom of my chin from all of the girls’ escapades –

  143. LC Aggie Sith February 25, 2011 at 7:04 pm #

    Dick, if you read the H&B blogroll closely, you’ll see something missing now 😉

  144. LC Aggie Sith February 25, 2011 at 7:06 pm #

    Toss in some science on this conversation.

    Oh, that should be awesome 😀

  145. Dick February 25, 2011 at 7:06 pm #

    Aggie, why yes you did!

  146. PattyAnn February 25, 2011 at 7:07 pm #

    Roamy? How would you break something like that?

  147. Car in February 25, 2011 at 7:09 pm #

    I see Chief has found the whorehouse.

    Welcome aboard, Master Chief.

  148. MCPO Airdale February 25, 2011 at 7:11 pm #

    Carin – All you cool kids took off and ditched me! But I got the last laugh; I found you!

  149. roamingfirehydrant February 25, 2011 at 7:12 pm #

    Most duct tapes will erode away in low Earth orbit, leaving the adhesive. They tried to get duct tape to work on the Moon, but the dust messed it up.

    I’m kind of terrified to touch the rest.

  150. roamingfirehydrant February 25, 2011 at 7:13 pm #

    **gives MCPO a big squishy hug**

  151. Dick February 25, 2011 at 7:15 pm #

    I’m kind of terrified to touch the rest.

  152. Car in February 25, 2011 at 7:16 pm #

    Carin – All you cool kids took off and ditched me! But I got the last laugh; I found you!

    If i thought you were lost, I would have left a trail of crumbs. But you were traveling, etc.

  153. Dick February 25, 2011 at 7:16 pm #

    Chief, I know for a fact that BiW left a trail of breadcrumbs.

  154. MCPO Airdale February 25, 2011 at 7:17 pm #

    BiW is a lawyer. Do you think I would willingly follow him into a dark alley?

  155. LC Aggie Sith February 25, 2011 at 7:17 pm #

    Oh, pizza is sooo good after a diet…

  156. Car in February 25, 2011 at 7:17 pm #

    (reading upthread)

    See, now I just have to deal with my teenage boys taking REALLY long showers.

  157. LC Aggie Sith February 25, 2011 at 7:18 pm #

    I thought a trail was left for everyone. At least, that’s what I saw 😉

  158. Dick February 25, 2011 at 7:18 pm #

    Carin, just look for the Kleenex on the nightstand when they don’t have allergies.

  159. LC Aggie Sith February 25, 2011 at 7:20 pm #

    So, is this a teen peen blog now?

  160. roamingfirehydrant February 25, 2011 at 7:21 pm #

    **puts hands over ears**

    lalalalalalalalala

  161. Car in February 25, 2011 at 7:24 pm #

    Roamy, it’s just the facts of life.

    I mean, when your son is taking a shower for an hour … there is simply no amount of self-delusion that can hide what’s going on in there.

    Believe me. I’ve tried.

  162. Car in February 25, 2011 at 7:25 pm #

    Carin, just look for the Kleenex on the nightstand when they don’t have allergies.

    I ain’t picking those up.

  163. Dick February 25, 2011 at 7:26 pm #

    I’m soooo glad my life is past all of this. Now I can just sit back and laugh at you guys.

  164. PattyAnn February 25, 2011 at 7:27 pm #

    *wraps duct tape around Roamy’s hands*

    Oops. Sorry about all those hairs.

  165. LC Aggie Sith February 25, 2011 at 7:27 pm #

    *notices she isn’t there yet*

    *cringes*

  166. MCPO Airdale February 25, 2011 at 7:28 pm #

    I used to turn on all the hot water in the house, and flush the toilets, after my son was in there for more than 20 minutes.

  167. roamingfirehydrant February 25, 2011 at 7:28 pm #

    It’s when he takes a shower for an hour, and his hair is still dry…

  168. Dick February 25, 2011 at 7:29 pm #

    I used to turn on all the hot water in the house, and flush the toilets, after my son was in there for more than 20 minutes.

    A true Navy dad.

  169. MCPO Airdale February 25, 2011 at 7:30 pm #

    Dick – Herself is still amazed at how quickly I shit, shower and shave.

  170. Car in February 25, 2011 at 7:33 pm #

    I bet I could beat you Chief. I’m no-nonsense in my toilet.

    Honestly, I’m barely a girl.

  171. MCPO Airdale February 25, 2011 at 7:35 pm #

    Carin – You really wanna race??

    OK. You get nekkid first!

  172. Dick February 25, 2011 at 7:36 pm #

    Carin, you can have a contest with Kelly. She doesn’t screw around a bit.

  173. Car in February 25, 2011 at 7:37 pm #

    Ha. No fair. You’ve got to start DRESSED.

    Someone go pack my car for me.

  174. Car in February 25, 2011 at 7:39 pm #

    I remember in high school … before prom or what not. I’d try to draw getting dressed, etc, make-up as long as possible.

    20 minutes. That’s the longest I could possibly make it take.

  175. Dick February 25, 2011 at 7:40 pm #

    Your musical selection this evening is being provided by Kill Bill.

  176. LC Aggie Sith February 25, 2011 at 7:41 pm #

    I’ll pass, Carin…

  177. MCPO Airdale February 25, 2011 at 7:42 pm #

    Aggie!!?!

    You don’t wanna get nekkid with me and Carin?

  178. LC Aggie Sith February 25, 2011 at 7:42 pm #

    It took me fifteen minutes to get ready for the Holiday Ball.

    Hubby was bitching about me taking so long.

  179. Car in February 25, 2011 at 7:44 pm #

    Ha ha ha…

    I could get ready in under 15 min though.

    20 minutes was me going as slow as possible.

    I can’t believe you won’t pack my car, though. It’s ONE night. It’s not like you’ll have to pack much.

    PLEASE.

  180. LC Aggie Sith February 25, 2011 at 7:45 pm #

    I passed on packing her car.

    I didn’t pass on the nekkid part 😉

  181. Dick February 25, 2011 at 7:47 pm #

    Aggie’s gettin’ nekkid!

  182. LC Aggie Sith February 25, 2011 at 7:47 pm #

    Well, it took me that long because I showered and had to style my stupid long hair.

    I could have passed on the hair styling, but not the shower.

  183. LC Aggie Sith February 25, 2011 at 7:52 pm #

    Dinner run! BBL

  184. MCPO Airdale February 25, 2011 at 7:52 pm #

    Herself is always amazed that, if we are going out of an evening, I shave again.

  185. Dick February 25, 2011 at 7:53 pm #

    Ha! I can go for two days without shaving and pass inspection. Being a blond has it’s advantages.

  186. MCPO Airdale February 25, 2011 at 7:58 pm #

    Dick – Is Stinky getting nervous?

  187. Dick February 25, 2011 at 8:03 pm #

    Naww… He’s 35 days out and ready to go get em.
    Honestly, I believe he’ll be an outstanding Sailor.

  188. MCPO Airdale February 25, 2011 at 8:12 pm #

    Dick – I certainly expect so. Last thing I want is a call from the Master Chief of Recruiting Command!

  189. Dick February 25, 2011 at 8:19 pm #

    Whether it’s a fact or not, I let him know some very important people just might be looking at him or his record from time to time.

    His answer to me was, “Groovy, then they’ll be forced to promote me faster.”

  190. LC Aggie Sith February 25, 2011 at 8:25 pm #

    Ok, back. What did I miss?

    *scrolls up to read*

  191. LC Aggie Sith February 25, 2011 at 8:26 pm #

    That’s a great attitude your son has, Dick.

  192. scottw February 25, 2011 at 8:26 pm #

    He said “groovy”?

  193. LC Aggie Sith February 25, 2011 at 8:28 pm #

    He said “groovy”?

    I think that’s MCPO’s influence, Scott 🙂

  194. scottw February 25, 2011 at 8:32 pm #

    How are you doing Aggie?

  195. Dick February 25, 2011 at 8:34 pm #

    Groovy is my influence on him. He likes the Stones and Deep Purple too.
    Scott, how do ya like our whorehouse as Carin calls it?

  196. LC Aggie Sith February 25, 2011 at 8:35 pm #

    I’m doing ok, Scott. How’s tricks up there? The weather wreaking havoc still?

  197. scottw February 25, 2011 at 8:36 pm #

    It’s slow to load, but worth it.

  198. Dick February 25, 2011 at 8:37 pm #

    That’s this thread. I’ll get a new one up in just a minute.

  199. scottw February 25, 2011 at 8:49 pm #

    Weather has been OK here, white death has been to the North.

    Aggie, have you seen a couple comments that I directed towards you or do I need to repeat?

  200. LC Aggie Sith February 25, 2011 at 8:57 pm #

    Crap, Scott. Did I miss comments here? Or at H2? because I have been AWOL there lately.

  201. Dick February 25, 2011 at 9:03 pm #

    New poat with bigger tits.

  202. scottw February 25, 2011 at 9:11 pm #

    Aggie it was a general awe thing. Your comment about the ages of your kids a couple of days back, I can’t comprehend.

    I have a ton of respect for you and your husband. If you guys ever need help, don’t hesitate to ask your FIF’s.

  203. LC Aggie Sith February 25, 2011 at 9:34 pm #

    Awwww, thanks, Scott. I appreciate your kindness.

    The kids thing, though…easy once you get used to it 😉
