Chit Chat Thread for the week of July 07th 2008

 

This is the place to talk about things that are not gps related, you can discuss whatever you would like, as long as it is clean. Remember we have families that have their children involved in the GPS fun and we don't want to make parents feel uncomfortable when their children ask what that word means.

Have fun...

This thread will be closed on Monday and a new one will be opened.

Another BOB

Sparky did a few acts with the local circus awhile back. At that time he was using a stage name for this act.

It was Shish Ka "Bob".

In viewing this video of his act you can see why he pick this name.

Just found something interesting about the way to read messages,
At the top of the thread, you will see on the left side where the topic is a label showing

Home » Welcome / open talk

if you click on that topic line, it will take you to a different format, which may be easier to navigate the new topic.
(I think thats correct) play with it, you wont hurt anything.

Gary it looks like you guy's got the real McCoy down there along side I-75 playing at Tropicana Field. So sit yourself in that comfy recliner and Hold your breath (don't forget that cold Brewski), then experience the thrill of whats to come, watching the Boys of Summer(your Rays) approach the playoffs, go to the playoffs and finally winning the ALCS. And of course the big sausage, the WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP, playing the World Series.

Since The Tribe is packing up the wigwam for the year and making deals and trades even before the All-star break, I guess I just root along with you for the RAY's, Just save me a cold one.

It is so sad that some have to go to a beer store to get beer. Here in VA, I can go to a drug store, walmart, food lion, convenience store...endless of choices. That is one of the things I hate about traveling, have ot figure out where I can get beer!!!!

Beer and wine

That's one of many things I miss about Washington. I could get beer and wine at any grocery store.

Here in Colorado, you can only get limited selection of beer, and wine (or anything stronger) is out of the question.

Count your blessings. Here in Maryland, you can't get anything alcoholic at the grocery store. It's positively inhumane wink

And nothing on Sundays

You have to remember which county you are in in MD before you go looking to buy beer.

Questions? Na..
