But never quite this bad! DOUBLE PARK

I'm looking forward to old age

Someday (in another couple of months or so...) when I appear to be "agitated", I can only hope that I can get the good stuff!

Sunday Drive with Dad

We can all learn from this and aspire to be better fathers... A father, who worked away from home all week, always made a special effort with his family on the weekends. Every Sunday morning he would take his 7-year old daughter out for a drive in the car for some bonding time. One particular Sunday however, he had a bad cold and he really didn't feel like being up at all. Luckily, his wife came to the rescue and said that she would take their daughter out. When they returned, the little girl anxiously ran upstairs to see her father. "Well," the father asked, "did you enjoy your ride with mommy?" "Oh yes, Daddy" the girl replied, "and do you know what? We didn't see a single dumb bastard or lousy shit head!" Brings a tear to your eye doesn't it?

Today in History - Jan 23rd

On Jan. 23, 1968, North Korea seized the Navy intelligence ship USS Pueblo, charging its crew with being on a spying mission. (The crew was released 11 months later.)

Great UK commercial!!


Those crazy Japanese

Part, oh I can't remember, 178 or so?

I think every guy out there can identify with this


Today in History

In 1943, a wartime ban on the sale of pre-sliced bread in the U.S. — aimed at reducing bakeries' demand for metal replacement parts — went into effect. See? You learned something today!

We're at 45 degrees and holding!

Been stuck down in Richardson TX working like a dog this week, but had to post this after a friend sent it to me. One of the funniest scenes from a really funny old movie, enjoy!

John the Farmer

From my buddy Jack, a good story and wonderful piece of advice: John the farmer was in the fertilized egg business. He had several hundred young layers (hens), called 'pullets', and ten roosters, whose job it was to fertilize the eggs. The farmer kept records and any rooster that didn't perform went into the soup pot and was replaced. That took an awful lot of his time, so he bought a set of tiny bells and attached them to his roosters. Each bell had a different tone so John could tell from a distance, which rooster was performing. Now he could sit on the porch and fill out an efficiency report simply by listening to the bells. The farmer's favorite rooster was old Butch; a very fine specimen he was, too. But on this particular morning John noticed old Butch's bell hadn't rung at all! John went to investigate. The other roosters were chasing pullets, bells-a-ringing. The pullets, hearing the roosters coming, would run for cover. But to Farmer J

Some people aren't "morning people"

I can't remember who posted about not being a morning person, but this one is for you!

The shoe post

I have noticed that a lot of the wonderful folks on my blog roll have an affinity for shoes. So when I stumbled across these, I just had to post them. I am looking forward to several photos of you all wearing some of these, you know who you are!

Damn funny PSA from Canada!

Polar Bear Attack

Graphic images of a Polar Bear attack in Churchill, Manitoba, Canada. These pictures were taken while people watched and could do nothing to stop the attack! Reports from the local newspaper say that the victim will make a full recovery.

Trash Haulers Have Fun Too

Who says Air Force dudes can't write? Found this old email from a friend who is retired AF. From the mailbag: There I was at six thousand feet over central Iraq, two hundred eighty knots and we're dropping faster than Paris Hilton's panties. It's a typical September evening in the Persian Gulf; hotter than a rectal thermometer and I'm sweating like a priest at a Cub Scout meeting. But that's neither here nor there. The night is moonless over Baghdad tonight, and blacker than a Steven King novel. But it's 2004, folks, and I'm sporting the latest in night-combat technology. Namely, hand-me-down night vision goggles (NVGs) thrown out by the fighter boys. Additionally, my 1962 Lockheed C-130E Hercules is equipped with an obsolete, yet, semi-effective missile warning system (MWS). The MWS conveniently makes a nice soothing tone in your headset just before the missile explodes into your airplane. Who says you can't polish a turd? At any rate, the NVGs are

This tag left a mark!

Teri tagged me with a slightly different meme than I have seen before. Here is how it works: Link to the person that tagged you: Doo! Teri did, I already covered that... Post the rules on your blog. Share 7 random and/or weird facts about yourself on your blog, tag 7 random people at the end of your post and include links to their blogs. Let each person know that they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog. And away we go... Fact #1 I used to be a downhill racer. I was on a team where I learned how to ski starting about the 4th grade, so I kind of grew up on the boards. However, with my training leaning towards keeping the big boards (210's) wide and pointing straight down the hill, I can't ski deep powder or in the trees to this day. My stance is too wide (please no Larry Craig jokes). Fact #2 I used to own a 1970 Plymouth Barracuda, 440 magnum, factory Hurst 4 speed, dual points, headers, and a big ass full cam. Blindingly fast in the quarter mile, usually

To all my friends

Just a note to let everyone know who sent me best wishes for 2007, it did NOTHING AT all. For 2008, could you please send either money, alcohol or gas vouchers. Cheers
