Fantastic Keep doin' what your doin' Larry. Milestones are essential to your psychy. I know that each of our small weekly losses in poundage keeps us doin' what we're doin'.

Glad to hear from you about that poundage caper. I had been wondering how it was going for you. Those small losses are so encouraging & I'm beyond pleased that you are experiencing them.

Woot! for you!

Cheers

Dave, ! Aim low, reach your goals, avoid disappointment!

However, I have always said that all you can get for asking is a "No!"

Hi, Earlene!
I have a plaque. It states, "I am master of this house. Whatever my wife says shall be done! (I know which side has the butter on it.)

All you get is manhole covers, at least I have the some nickles left.

Oh, if you only knew. When I "toot" I don't even make a sound. (Must be OA)

[QUOTE=okmunky;3623045]

Wayne, I know you aren't gonna let that shiny new ride stay in your garage. The one you have now has more bells and whistles than you can use. Me? I'm holding out for one of those self-driving models. It's sure is hard to see the sights when ya gotta keep your eyes on the asphalt.

Yep! And I'm holding out for a self driving MH. Earlene already has one of those - Me.

[...]

I'm sure glad my investment account has been doing well since November. I fear it's about to take a good hit. Oh well, DD assures me this is her last move so making us an easier, quieter place seems like a good investment. It's only her inheiritance.

My kids named the MH "The SKI Mobile" (SKI = Spending Kids Inheritance.)

Yea, I broke down. Couldn't wait weeks and weeks to decide (it's already been a couple weeks looking/thinking). It came down to three choices and I took the one in the middle, a Nikon D750. Got a bundled deal with other things so saved a bunch and it satisfies my underlying requirements as best as I can afford

Not sure when all the pieces will show up, but I've been reading the 500 page manual to get ready

Thanks for those providing feedback. It was helpful in that it made me think things I wasn't thinking of.

Our Florence was about to be nominated for best patina, so Martin went & spoiled her chances:

That's a WashWaxAll system with the magic extending pole, first use. He says it's hard work, but should be easier next time.

Martin has become a pole dancer! It's magic!

First some sad news. Sue, Martin the outstanding eating establishment that Mary, I and Di took you to on your last pass through AR has burned to the ground.

I'm having to set in my little hosting cart down by the rest rooms just to get a cell signal. Thankfully it has AC! Seem to be getting a lot of funny looks.
Great accomplishment Larry, Queen Ann we're praying!
No doubt you will be passing another milestone before we're back on good cell service.
One last thing, Wayne your wrong!

I'd ask about what, but I already know your answer, Tim. It would be, "about every word that comes outta his mouth."

It's good to know that you didn't burn down. Say Hi! to Mary.

Nonono! That place was absolutely unique, and we really enjoyed our mini-c there with y'all.

What are the owners planning to do (after they recover from the shock)??
Do they know the cause?

More than just a good, fun place to eat, how many jobs went suddenly up in the smoke? What a shame.

He couldn't be more thrifty than Bob....could he? At least we now go out to eat about once a week, and he never says no anymore when I wanna go out, and I don't get 'the talk' when I spend more than a hundred bucks at once...I think has finally learned, Mama needs a slush fund....
