Chatty Kathy Thread for the week of October 29th 2007

 

Ok here it is the first chatty kathy thread... here 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.

Now CB radios. There is a dating yourself statement. I got rid of my last CB back in the early 90's at a garage sale. It had been sitting in my garage lost and lonely for years so I tried to give it a new home.

Breaker...Same here

If you've ever driven the 75-100 mile stretches of Interstate highways WITHOUT cell phone service ( e.g. I-70 in Utah from Green River to Richfield ), you'll know why a CB is still a good tool. and it's a bit of fun just listening to the chatter.

dd

I keep one

I keep a portable CB (plugs into outlet) in the car
strictly to listen for road conditions should I hit some and to listen for reports when traffic gets stopped on the interstates for whatever reason. Helps me decide to see how good "Lila's" detours can be !

Ahh the Griswold family Christmas. It's one of our family traditions to watch this movie. Usually when we've had a stressful day, it get's put in the DVD player and you just can't help but laugh.

We have Patriots season tickets, but the game I would have liked to go to is next Sunday, an away game. The Colts vs. the Pats or Manning vs. Brady. I think the Pats may end their winning streak to these guys. They are a tough team to beat. If the Pat's make it to the Super Bowl we get to go!

Red Sox Rolling Rally tomorrow at noon. Drop Kick Murphy's on a float, Pappelbon doing his Irish Jig that he promised "The Nation", it's going to be good.
I'll finally be able to get to bed before midnight tonight!

It's a toss up, either Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz, or Elvira. I have the two costumes, but haven't yet decided.

Maybe I'll go as M.M., her icon is so cute!

There is a lot on the busy interstates. I would have soooooo many tickets if it wasn't for the CB. However, I don't use it when daughter is in the car, it has gotten pretty bad as far as content and language.

My old CB went out in a garage sale but it would be nice to have while sitting on the Interstate wanting to know what the hold up is. Sitting for an hour while a wreck is cleared getting a progress report from a trucker with a visual helps the time go by.

Black or with cream and sugar?

You do realize, of course, that coffee with cream and sugar does more damage to the keyboard than black coffee.

--

yup

Jon is always asking me if I would like to add some coffee to my cream and sugar, he thinks it is way too sweet.

What good is there in coffee anyway?

Listen to some so called experts and the only thing you should drink is water and algae juice.

Mix that walnuts and bran.

Yeah right.

Coffee hmmmm

Hmmmmmm.... Maybe I should spill some coffee on my Magellan, then my wife might let me get a Garmin.

Just in case... what's the best Garmin out there...
