    So, do you have a MILF watching degree?

  2. Dick July 21, 2011 at 9:17 am #

    Yes, I do have a Milf watching degree. With the highest honors, no less.

    Where can you go that the water is that blue? I grew up on the Gulf Coast – I always thought that water was brown…..

  4. Teresa in Fort Worth, TX July 21, 2011 at 9:44 am #

    The DFW area is a target-rich environment for MILFs (or so I’ve heard) –

  5. Jay in Ames July 21, 2011 at 9:49 am #

    Of course, Teresa, that’s why Dick has chosen to do his post graduate work there.

    Soon he will move on to the Atlantic coast.

  6. Dick July 21, 2011 at 9:53 am #

    Soon he will move on to the Atlantic coast for further, more in-depth studies.

    So, good morning, MILF watchers and doers!!!

  11. LC Aggie Sith July 21, 2011 at 10:47 am #

    Hm….I think that came out wrong….

  12. Dick July 21, 2011 at 10:50 am #

    Sounded pretty good to me.

  13. LC Aggie Sith July 21, 2011 at 10:53 am #

    Good point, Dick. Peasants do tend to fall in both categories.

  14. Car in July 21, 2011 at 10:58 am #

    I think you meant it that way Aggie.

    Carin tossed out a “wakey wakey” on the last poat this morning.

  18. MCPO Airdale July 21, 2011 at 11:14 am #

    Holy crap! Over two hours in P.T. this morning. She beat me like a rented mule!

  19. LC Aggie Sith July 21, 2011 at 11:16 am #

    Carin tossed out a “wakey wakey” on the last poat this morning.

    Fine…she gets a pass this time….

  20. Dick July 21, 2011 at 11:19 am #

    She beat me like a rented mule!

    Work for me and you’ll feel like a stolen mule.
    And anyway, when you were younger, you would’ve gladly paid for that.

    That, I can understand.

    Ahhhh, lunch! My stomach was GROWLING!

  26. Dick July 21, 2011 at 11:59 am #

    Chief, are you on some sort of Google Plus, or did your email get hacked?
    I got something from you but couldn’t figure it out.

  27. LC Aggie Sith July 21, 2011 at 12:00 pm #

    Google+ is the alternative to Facebook, Dick.

    If FB is teh debbil, Google+ is Mephistopheles.

  28. Guy S July 21, 2011 at 12:03 pm #

    So which app is Beelzebub?

  29. LC Aggie Sith July 21, 2011 at 12:04 pm #

    That would be Angry Birds, Guy 😉

    Reporting for MILF watching duty, Sir!

  31. GMLand July 21, 2011 at 12:17 pm #

    Funny story.

    The neighborhood I live in is called Westhaven. Affectionately known by the locals as MILFhaven – an honor well deserved.

  32. GMLand July 21, 2011 at 12:17 pm #

    OH! and…

  33. Dick July 21, 2011 at 12:28 pm #

    Southlake and Colleyville are the big Milf worlds around here.

    *goes and looks for the succubus app*

  35. LC Aggie Sith July 21, 2011 at 12:31 pm #

    Not sure where the MILF communities are around here, but I imagine they would fall somewhere in the Alamo Heights area.

  36. Dick July 21, 2011 at 12:36 pm #

    Off to the steel yard, where no self respecting milf would be found.

  37. LC Aggie Sith July 21, 2011 at 12:38 pm #

    Here’s hoping you find some that have no self respect, Dick!!! 😀

  38. Guy S July 21, 2011 at 12:52 pm #

    Ya all are feeling too damn happy! So let’s take a look at something President “Hopey-Changey” is currently working on.

    http://www.freestatevoice.com.au/politics/item/567-obama-wants-to-jail-americans-with-new-law

    And to be fair, this is not a “new law”. Rather, it is the resurrection of this bill: http://www.govtrack.us/congress/billtext.xpd?bill=h110-1955

  39. Guy S July 21, 2011 at 12:52 pm #

    Hey Aggie, a little moderation help here? (Yeah, I know, two links do this every time…but they do go together).

  40. Guy S July 21, 2011 at 1:00 pm #

    And now I must be away! Time to head into the big city and visit the mother in law at the rehab hospital. With luck, we should have her back home tomorrow.

  41. Teresa in Fort Worth, TX July 21, 2011 at 1:03 pm #

    VERY interesting article – perhaps if we were to float the meme that BO isn’t a “real” black man, but a rich white liberal who just happens to be half black, we could change some voters’/journalists’ minds:

  43. Dick July 21, 2011 at 2:46 pm #

    Back from the steel yard. Now I gotta start welding up a gallows.

  44. GMLand July 21, 2011 at 2:56 pm #

    did Jazz go on a walkabout?

  45. Dick July 21, 2011 at 2:58 pm #

    He got ate by a croc!

  46. LC Aggie Sith July 21, 2011 at 2:58 pm #

    did Jazz go on a walkabout?

    Nah, just a sabbatical while he looks for another job and enjoys life a bit more.

  47. LC Aggie Sith July 21, 2011 at 3:00 pm #

    Now I gotta start welding up a gallows.

    I was thinking of putting up a little cupola, but I like your idea better.

  48. Dick July 21, 2011 at 3:15 pm #

    Yep, if they agree on some bullshit ten year croc, and allow taxes to rise, I think I’m gonna twist.

  49. Dick July 21, 2011 at 3:18 pm #

    And if they did, I hope they were smart enough to include plane tickets out of the country for themselves.

  50. LC Aggie Sith July 21, 2011 at 3:22 pm #

    Well, they are experts on survival, Dick, so they probably did.

  51. Dick July 21, 2011 at 3:48 pm #

  55. Dick July 21, 2011 at 4:49 pm #

    Should’ve hollered sooner, Carin. I made a liquor store run after I ran by the steel yard.

  56. Jay in Ames July 21, 2011 at 4:53 pm #

    Have a beer, Car in, it brings out the funneh in you.

  57. Car in July 21, 2011 at 4:53 pm #

    DANGIT.

    Now I suppose I have to go for myself.

    Beer is so yesterday

  59. Jay in Ames July 21, 2011 at 4:56 pm #

    I have a nice local red in the cupboard. Pretty good stuff, for Iowa wine.

  60. Dick July 21, 2011 at 4:57 pm #

    Kelly only drinks wine or champagne, and I only drink tequila. We have beer for cooking and friends who come over if they want one.

  61. Car in July 21, 2011 at 5:00 pm #

    I mostly only drink wine, but every now and then a beer hits the spot.

  62. Dick July 21, 2011 at 5:04 pm #

    Beer ends up making my nose all stuffy. Same with wine. Allergies.

  63. Dick July 21, 2011 at 5:09 pm #

    How lovely, some salesman from XM radio just called to get me to re-up on the new truck.
    I explained to him that I get AM and FM for no charge.

    Hope that tides you for a bit.

  65. Car in July 21, 2011 at 5:28 pm #

    You’re a peach, Aggie.

    Just went and picked a mess of green beans for dinner.

    And ate a bunch of sugar snaps in the process. I just plant those as garden snacks anyway. They never make it inside.

  66. Car in July 21, 2011 at 5:29 pm #

    Toms are still surviving. Showing a bit of blight, but I’m fighting it.

  67. Dick July 21, 2011 at 5:31 pm #

    Are you talking about Snap Peas?

  68. LC Aggie Sith July 21, 2011 at 5:32 pm #

    Or sugar peas? Or are they the same thing??

  69. Teresa in Fort Worth, TX July 21, 2011 at 5:44 pm #

    Mmmmm – about that gallows, Dick…..

    I’m tired of academia’s idea of “justice” – it doesn’t resemble anything remotely near the “Rule of Law”.

  70. Car in July 21, 2011 at 5:48 pm #

    Sugarsnap peas.

    Yep, the same.

  71. Car in July 21, 2011 at 5:48 pm #

    I love ’em. Just eat ’em as I pick. I’m actually kinda stuffed now.

  72. Dick July 21, 2011 at 5:49 pm #

    Interesting. I would’ve never thought to eat them straight off the vine. Sounds good though.

    Perhaps you shouldn’t Dick. I mean, if you like using them for other stuff.

    I swear, I end up eating most of them that way.

  75. LC Aggie Sith July 21, 2011 at 5:51 pm #

    Been a long time since I had me some straight off the plant.

  76. Dick July 21, 2011 at 5:52 pm #

    Teresa, I got gallows, a shitload of big trees, and plenty of rope.
    Just waiting on customers.
    Hell, I even gotz me a couple of heavy duty ladders that’ll do in a pinch.

  77. Car in July 21, 2011 at 5:52 pm #

    it is so dry up here. I run the sprinkler all day, just moving it around. And it’s not enough. My beans are doing well though. The grass? Not so good.

    Our lawn, or what’s left of it is hiding til some rain comes. Texas lawns get used to these summers fast, or die.
    Having to water the tomatoes and herbs everyday though, just to keep up.

    And if that boy of mine doesn’t call tonight…. I’m gonna….

  81. Car in July 21, 2011 at 5:56 pm #

    It’s pretty much toast, mine is. It’ll come back, I was just trying to help it along.

  82. LC Aggie Sith July 21, 2011 at 5:57 pm #

    I have hay, officially.

    *gives Dick a tequila I.V. drip*

    Calm down, buddy 😉

    Dick – Wanna embarrass the shit outta him? Contact the chaplain and say that you haven’t heard from your son. He’ll get called in, dressed down and everyone in his class will know about it.

    Works 98% of the time.

  85. Dick July 21, 2011 at 5:59 pm #

    I was thinking about selling his car and cutting him off from the car insurance, but I already did that. Bummer.

  86. Dick July 21, 2011 at 6:00 pm #

    Hell no, Chief! I wouldn’t do that even if I was pissed.

  87. MCPO Airdale July 21, 2011 at 6:01 pm #

    HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

  88. Dick July 21, 2011 at 6:01 pm #

    Wonder why I’m twitching?

    *gives Carin the stinkeye*

  89. Dick July 21, 2011 at 6:03 pm #

    All I gotta do is send him an email and he’ll call, but I have this feeling he’s up to his ass in alligators right about now, so I’ll leave him be, and just bitch about it here.

  90. Car in July 21, 2011 at 6:03 pm #

    Look, hubby isn’t home with my wine yet. If I can’t drink, I don’t see why everyone else should be be able to relax.

  91. Dick July 21, 2011 at 6:07 pm #

    I wonder if he’s killed that broad who was right on his ass in gpa yet?

  92. GMLand July 21, 2011 at 6:09 pm #

    Dick, have you ever tried Tarantula Tequila? It is my favorite of the true poisons. Promise me you’ll try it. PROMISE!

  93. Dick July 21, 2011 at 6:11 pm #

    That’s pretty much the Ripple/Colt45 of tequila, isn’t it?

  94. LC Aggie Sith July 21, 2011 at 6:13 pm #

    I will wait to drink with you, Carin.

    It’s the least I can do.

  95. LC Aggie Sith July 21, 2011 at 6:14 pm #

    have you ever tried Tarantula Tequila?

    Damn, that’s debbil’s piss.

  96. GMLand July 21, 2011 at 6:14 pm #

    No way buddy, it is the shit of tequilas…. wait.

  97. Dick July 21, 2011 at 6:14 pm #

    Carin I’m slamming down hooch like a 454 big block drinks gas.
    I plan to be totally ripped, nekkid, and throwing up in your fireplace before you even get started.

  98. Dick July 21, 2011 at 6:15 pm #

    I think ya picked the correct phrase there.

  99. LC Aggie Sith July 21, 2011 at 6:20 pm #

    I plan to be totally ripped, nekkid, and throwing up in your fireplace before you even get started.

    WTF?? I live closer, and my fireplace is spotless from lack of use!!

  100. LC Aggie Sith July 21, 2011 at 6:21 pm #

    Did I just invite Dick to defile my fireplace?

    I must be desperate for company.

  101. Dick July 21, 2011 at 6:24 pm #

    Cool, go open the front door.

  102. LC Aggie Sith July 21, 2011 at 6:27 pm #

  103. Dick July 21, 2011 at 6:30 pm #

    I still don’t carry anything past a scorching case of jaundice, but I really need to start.

  104. Dick July 21, 2011 at 6:31 pm #

    Hey, where’s BiW been all day?

  105. LC Aggie Sith July 21, 2011 at 6:34 pm #

    I swear, if he comes in here and says what wonderful weather he’s having, I will… do nothing. Just cry.

  106. Dick July 21, 2011 at 6:41 pm #

    If he does that, Aggie, I’ll punch him in the poon for ya.

  110. Dick July 21, 2011 at 7:00 pm #

    Not true, Chief. I want to do slippery hawt, durty sex, too. But I’m guessing you’re not gonna be a player.

  121. Car in July 21, 2011 at 7:19 pm #

    What’s everybody reading right now?

    I’m reading Ric Locke’s book. Half-way through. I sorta want to start cutting myself. Something better happen soon.

  122. LC Aggie Sith July 21, 2011 at 7:21 pm #

    I’m reading The Last Centurion by John Ringo. That’s my bedside book.

    My bathtub book is Viking Raider by some Harlequin reject.

  123. Dick July 21, 2011 at 7:23 pm #

    Carin, I can’t read books anymore.
    Just as sure as God made little green apples, somebody will accuse me of plagiarizing.
    And that’s the last thing I need.

  124. Kelly July 21, 2011 at 7:29 pm #

    I was told to come here and list what I’m reading. I read multiple books at once. Currently…

    Vietnam by Stanley Karnow (history of Vietnam) – bedside table
    A Night to Remember by Walter Lord (about the sinking of the Titanic) – bedside table
    Soul Identity by Dennis Batchelder – sci-fi/thriller on Kindle for iPhone
    The Gunslinger by Stephen King – Kindle…I’m rereading the Dark Tower series…love it so much.

  125. LC Aggie Sith July 21, 2011 at 7:31 pm #

    You put me to shame with your list.

  126. Teresa in Fort Worth, TX July 21, 2011 at 7:32 pm #

    I love that the “Wind Chill” in DFW was 101….

    I just started re-reading an old Kathleen Woodiwiss novel from my youth. Thing was written in 1974, and still holds up.

    Yeah, it’s a bodice-ripper – so sue me. Mr. TiFW hasn’t complained once in all these years….

  127. LC Aggie Sith July 21, 2011 at 7:34 pm #

    Teresa, is it The Wolf and the Dove??

  128. Kelly July 21, 2011 at 7:37 pm #

    Aw Aggie no worries. I read crap books as well. I’ve been working on the Vietnam book for about six months now, as I can only take about five pages at a time. *blush*

  129. Teresa in Fort Worth, TX July 21, 2011 at 7:37 pm #

  130. LC Aggie Sith July 21, 2011 at 7:39 pm #

    Wha..??

    *ding-ding-ding-ding-ding*

    Give that little lady a gold star!

    Sad, but true – I’ve read all of my other “girlie” books a couple of times over now (I’m a wicked fast reader), so I thought I’d go back and look at some that I haven’t read in years. Some of them hold up well, some of them….not so much –

  132. LC Aggie Sith July 21, 2011 at 7:42 pm #

    She was one of my favorites, as was LaVyrle Spencer.

  133. Dick July 21, 2011 at 7:45 pm #

    I wanna read books, but I’m relegated to Harry Potter and The Happy Hollisters.

    Don’t feel bad, Aggie. If the guys can look at pron, we can have our trashy novels. My mom had the equivalent of XBrad’s collection.

    Evening all!!

    The temps have come down to the low 90’s and the dew point is in the low 60’s. All the rain is in Iowa (too far to my west damn it). So much for the weather. Mother in law comes home tomorrow, and it’s payday too!

    Simon R Green’s “From Hell With Love” alternates between the bedside and the couch upstairs.
    Simon R Green’s “For Heaven’s Eyes Only” is in the batters box as soon as the above is finished
    RAH’s “Time Enough for Love” gets picked up (again) once those two are done.
    Kathy Reich’s “Deja Dead” (the first of the “Bones” series, which inspired the TV show) fills in the blanks.
    And a non-fiction book on Einstein keeps lurking around the shelf demanding it’s turn in the mix. (Along with the “Federalist Papers”)

    Now, where did I put that bottle of rum?

  136. LC Aggie Sith July 21, 2011 at 7:47 pm #

    Harry Potter and The Happy Hollisters.

    Is that the eighth book??

  137. Teresa in Fort Worth, TX July 21, 2011 at 7:48 pm #

    It’s not “sex trash”, Aggie, it’s “Trashy Romance Novels”.

    The “sex trash” isn’t kept out in plain sight – that’s what nightstand drawers are for….. 😛

    I remember Penthouse Forum. The letters were some of the most inspired fiction you could hope to find anywhere.

    “I never thought your letters were real, until last weekend. I was spending time at my cousin Bettie’s ranch, and after a long hard day helping out, it was time to let my hair down and have a swig or three from the bottle of “corn fix’ens” passed around between all the other ranch hands and I. The next morning, I work up with Bettie’s prize winning Ewe (took 3 first place ribbons at the local county fair) laying in bed next to me.

    She was worth every ribbon, let me tell you!!”

  142. Teresa in Fort Worth, TX July 21, 2011 at 7:57 pm #

    OMG – The Happy Hollisters! I thought my sister and I were the only people who read those books – I have most of those books (with covers) at my house!

    I actually found a copy of the very last book in that series and gave it to my sister for Christmas one year, ‘cuz she was the one who started collecting them first. It is very hard to find.

    I know you’re not supposed to speak ill of the dead, but that little so-and-so must have sold it when she was short of cash one time, because when we went through all of her belongings after she passed away, THEY WEREN’T THERE. I felt really bad for being mad about that….. 🙂

  143. LC Aggie Sith July 21, 2011 at 7:58 pm #

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!

  144. Dick July 21, 2011 at 8:00 pm #

    Another author who was big in the romance genre back then was Rosemary Rogers.

    I actually seem to remember reading about Kathleen Woodiwiss passing away a while back.

  150. roamingfirehydrant July 21, 2011 at 8:27 pm #

    Mom was a big fan of Diana Palmer (Long, Tall Texan series) and Janet Dailey (a 50-book series, one set in every state.)

    Dick, I think I am okay for the next year.

    Aggie, many people were wearing the black Shuttle program T-shirts, including me. Seemed appropriate.

    In a mind-boggling example of government corruption, billions of dollars flown to Iraq for post-invasion “reconstruction” have vanished and may never be recovered, say officials from Judicial Watch.

    Bundled in chunks of $100 bills, the cash was sent from the United States to Iraq in turboprop military cargo planes known as C-130 Hercules. About $2.4 billion fit in each aircraft and 21 flights made trips, transporting a total of $12 billion in American currency to Iraq by 2004

    For years federal audits have determined that more than half of that money could not located by auditors, but there seemed to be some hope that some of the funds could be retrieved.

    However, this week the Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstruction, Stuart Bowen, essentially confirmed that $6.6 billion in cash was likely stolen and may never be recovered

    Is he praying to God? Allah? Satan??!! (or all the above, hedging his bets) My bet is he is channeling Cthulhu, wondering why the elder god has yet to arrive as promised.

    Roamy, though I never worked for NASA, and never even played an astronut on TV, I did share my sixth birthday with this event. And from that a love of all things space and aviation related was started. Perhaps looking at this will cheer you up. We dared to dream…reach for the stars. I believe we will do so again.

  163. LC Aggie Sith July 21, 2011 at 9:56 pm #

    Sorry, but Cthulhu is way too cool for the likes of Obama.

  164. roamingfirehydrant July 21, 2011 at 9:56 pm #

    Guy, do you read XBrad’s blog? I poat more serious stuff over there, and I share your love for all things space and aviation related.

    If that is where you post, yeah I have checked it out, and have been meaning to get it on my roll. Very clean looking site, with lots of good stuff.

    Aggie, I don’t think Cthulhu is above using that POS for his own ends. Then again, even Cthulhu has standards I guess.

  167. Guy S July 21, 2011 at 10:04 pm #

    And one more comment before I hit the rack (have to be up too damn early tomorrow morning for work).

    It looks like we are going to have a football season this year after all. http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2011/football/nfl/07/21/owners-approve-cba.ap/index.html

    This is a good thing. I need to have at least a chance of something good happening to a Chicago sports team that I like, cause the Cubs suckith big time this year. They aren’t even pretending to impersonate a major league baseball team this year.

  168. Dick July 21, 2011 at 10:05 pm #

    I got a bunch of Calvin and Hobbes “supercollections” at a bookstore several years ago – I miss that comic strip, too…..

    Rebecca’s watching “Tangled” for the 40 billionth time – it’s so fun to hear her “sing” along with the songs. She’s horribly off key, but then again, the other girls were too when they were young. At least she follows the tune, rather than just singing the same note over and over again!
