Chit Chat Thread for the week of July 21st 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.

TWENTY-NINE LINES TO MAKE YOU SMILE

1. My husband and I divorced over religious differences. He thought he was God and I didn't.
2. I don't suffer from insanity; I enjoy every minute of it.
3. Some people are alive only because it's illegal to kill them.
4. I used to have a handle on life, but it broke.
5. Don't take life too seriously; No one gets out alive.
6. You're just jealous because the voices only talk to me
7. Beauty is in the eye of the beer holder.
8. Earth is the insane asylum for the universe
9. I'm not a complete idiot -- Some parts are just missing.
10. Out of my mind. Back in five minutes
11. NyQuil, the stuffy, sneezy, why-the-heck-is-the-room-spinning medicine.
12. God must love stupid people; He made so many.
13. The gene pool could use a little chlorine.
14. Consciousness: That annoying time between naps.
15. Ever stop to think, and forget to start again
16. Being 'over the hill' is much better than being under it!
17. Wrinkled Was Not One of the Things I Wanted to Be When I Grew up.
18. Procrastinate Now!
19. I Have a Degree in Liberal Arts; Do You Want Fries With That?
20. A hangover is the wrath of grapes.
21. A journey of a thousand miles begins with a cash advance.
22. Stupidity is not a handicap. Park elsewhere!
23.They call it PMS because Mad Cow Disease was already taken.
24. He who dies with the most toys is nonetheless DEAD.
25. A picture is worth a thousand words, but it uses up three
thousand times the memory.
26. Ham and eggs...A day's work for a chicken, a lifetime commitment for a pig.
27. The trouble with life is there's no background music.
28. The original point and click interface was a Smith & Wesson.
29. I smile because I don't know what the hell is going on.

I agree. Along with not getting sick leave, holiday time, vacation days. The only day of the week that I know is Sunday and then only because the comics in the newspaper are in color. razz

Over the hill

Being over the hill is not so bad, starting the climb back up is whats tough.

I have been blessed

This day, 24 years ago, I married my best friend who is now the mother of my three wonderful children...I have been blessed...indeed... I have been blessed.

Thank you for the smiles, Cheryl

After my eventful weekend, I sure needed them.

The neighbor's 9mm went off early Saturday morning as I slept, shot through the wall into my bedroom, grazed my head, punched its way into the living room above the couch where my daughter's head was just a minute earlier, ricochetted against the porch door, and stopped in my living room floor. surprised shock

I woke up to a firecracker-like sound and the tickle of the blood from my forehead.

The police detectives, ER doctors and nurses told me they had never seen a patient with a gunshot wound to the head walk out with only a scratch. shock

Glad you're ok Spider_Elliott - or are going to be!

My question would have something to do with what the blazes was going on with the neigbors' gun to make it go off? (are they alright as well?)

Makes my week-end seem uneventful!

Toooooooo Much trouble.........

Sparky's experiment with the Wind Turbine Car was somewhat successful. But he found out that having to dismantle and re-assemble it every time he went under an overpass took too long and included too much work, he gave up on the idea. So he just went back to riding his bike.

I am so glad to hear that you are ok, that must have been incredibly scary.

I am also happy that your daughter was not hurt.

I find that the most accurate info on predicted
paths & intensities of Tropical Storms/Hurricanes
is the National Hurricane Center link below:

http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/index.shtml

I have been following Hurricanes on the internet, tracking. chat room participant etc since Hugo hit SC and I think the NHC has improved so much in their forecasting in the past 4-5 years.
They can't make it change course but they will give you good information.
IMHO

Another good site if you're into it is:

Sparky is doing his part in being green!

I guess Sparky is trying to be green and save gas huh?
The problem with Sparky riding his bike is a simple one, if he rides to long out in the sun, the only thing going to be green is Sparky (Meat + Sun = Green).

Sure am glad he doing his part in being green though.

How well do you and your neighbor get along ... maybe it wasn't an accident?? wink wink

Rainy Wednesday

happy hump day! Some much needed rain finally fell on my neck of the woods this morning... I noticed several neighbors' lawns are starting to brown

Rain?

What's that? Haven't seen or felt any in quite some time.

Wonderful, I'm married now for 36 years with 3 kids and now 4 grandkids, who make my day every time I see them, which is often.

I love being retired, greatest thing in the world.

Give us the follow-up details. Why did the neighbor's gun discharge? Accident? Drunk? Intruder? Inquiring minds want to know!

Gunshot update

I don't know the neighbor too well, and I'm not sure why he had the loaded gun in his hand. But he was sober and was very shaken up. More so than I was.

Investigation is ongoing, and I'll know more when I get a copy of the police report for insurance purposes. confused

In the meantime, the wound is healing nicely, and I'm not that worse off. And no, I'm not considering any civil suit, as long as all the damages and medical expenses are covered, which he has pledged. My good fortune is everyone else's good fortune, as some might say. smile

Certainly it could've been an involuntary manslaughter, and he could've faced felony charges as well as heavy civil charges. shock It didn't, so he isn't. wink

Of course, if he fails to cover the medical cost.... twisted

Thank you for all the well wishing, everyone. smile smile

The Cubs Curse exists because, the Chicago Cubs have not won the World Series since 1908.

Best wishes to the Cubbies in their hunt for that Wildcard Slot. You got a good chance!

However it goes, Chicago will remain the biggest city on Lake Michigan. So, you've got plenty to be thankful for.

Thanks!
