  1. Friend

    How true! Years back, I helped a 'friend' move twice. When I needed help moving, he was too busy. When being blessed enough to count really good friends with the fingers of your hand, the upside was he left one free to be filled by another.

    Post #4 photo 3, Reagan & Di dancing (friends always call my wife Lady Di, we both loved Reagen, in fact, we're in the middle of a Nat. Geo. Documentary Netflix DVD, killing Reagen), though I also like BC's photos of Tom Sellick dancing with (Nancy)? Diane once smooched with Eastwood, though that's a different story. :)

    He certainly did. As an aside, I watched Hitchcock's documentary 'Night Will Fall', not for the faint of heart. If any numbnut should ever think the Holocaust really didn't happen, that will dispel all doubt.

  6. 1 + 2 = 3

    Regarding hitting a nail, one of my best buds has 3 sons. He's a former Green Beret. The middle teen was moving toward booze (hidden in his closet) to finally drugs. This kid was like a nephew to me. My friend Mike called and asked if I could maybe talk to him (they had moved out of town at this time) as he was beyond his wits end. So I decided to send a simple note. Came up with it on the fly and used a bold felt pen, sent it snail mail. Went like this, except the circle size was more impressive: Dear Luke, 0, This is your brain. o, This is your a**hole. o, This is your brain on drugs. 0, This is your a**hole in prison! Love, Rich Don't know if this site will change what I typed, if so, it's easy to figure out. By the way, the note I sent worked.

    Lol! I remember someone posting a comic pix. Here about the Mexico wall, re-posting it for laughs:
  8. Signs

    Thanks BC, the interior are 6x10 beams, rough-cut Douglass fir, originally 20 ft long that we cut with a huge skill saw. Not one right angle in the house. My dad had a genius IQ, archeture was not one of his accomplishments, he just designed it on the fly. It's on 20 acres, and whenever I stepped foot within the gate, peace descended through the ground with that feeling: home. Hard to describe, maybe you get the drift. Three harddrives I took out of my XP computers has interior photos, once I upgrade to a Mac instead of this outdated iPad, I will post some here. My dad died in that home, happy.
  9. Signs

    Regarding the house by Yosemite, three of us (me - the grunt, and two others) built it in the late 70's, my dad designed it. All I can find are two exterior pix. and one showing the view from one of the outside decks:
  10. Signs

    SIGN IN A SHOE REPAIR STORE IN VANCOUVER: We will heel you We will save your sole We will even dye for you. A SIGN ON A BLINDS AND CURTAIN TRUCK: “Blind man driving.” Sign over a Gynecologist's Office: "Dr. Jones, at your cervix.” In a Podiatrist's office: "Time wounds all heels.” On a Septic Tank Truck: Yesterday's Meals on Wheels At an Optometrist's Office: "If you don't see what you're looking for, You've come to the right place.” On a Plumber's truck: "We repair what your husband fixed.” On another Plumber's truck: "Don't sleep with a drip. Call your plumber.” At a Tire Shop in Milwaukee: "Invite us to your next blowout.” On an Electrician's truck: "Let us remove your shorts.” In a Non-smoking Area: "If we see smoke, we will assume you are on fire and will take appropriate action.” On a Maternity Room door: "Push. Push. Push.” At a Car Dealership: "The best way to get back on your feet - miss a car payment.” Outside a Muffler Shop: "No appointment necessary. We hear you coming.” In a Veterinarian's waiting room: "Be back in 5 minutes. Sit! Stay!” At the Electric Company: "We would be delighted if you send in your payment on time. However, if you don't, YOU will be de-lighted.” In a Restaurant window: "Don't stand there and be hungry; come on in and get fed up.” In the front yard of a Funeral Home: "Drive carefully. We'll wait.” In a Chicago Radiator Shop: "Best place in town to take a leak.” And the best one for last…; Sign on the back of another Septic Tank Truck: "Caution - Truck full of Political Promises" My own favorite was a sign in a restaurant's restroom when I lived up near Yosemite building a house. It was above the men's urinal: "We aim to please! Will you aim too, please!"

    Quite a main dichotomy! Maybe the other 22 rounded out the mix of ashes.
  14. Dang missing E-mail

    The mother-in-law stopped by to find her son-in-law boiling angry and hurriedly packing his suitcase. "What happened ?" she asked anxiously. "What happened! I'll tell you what happened. I sent an E-mail to my wife telling her I was coming home today from my business trip. I get home, and guess what I found? My wife, your own daughter, with a guy in our bedroom! This is unforgivable, the end of our marriage. I'm done. I'm leaving forever !" "Calm down, calm down!" his mother-in-law said, "There is something very odd going on here. My daughter would never do such a thing! There must be a simple explanation. I'll go speak to her immediately and find out what happened." Moments later, the mother-in-law came back with a big smile. "I told you there must be a simple explanation.. she didn't receive your E-mail !"
