Can't believe how rude that lady was, I called the Olympic Bobsled Uniform Shop to order mine and Richards uniforms and as soon as I gave her our measurements she started laughing. I'm thinking someone in her office must have been telling a joke but she just kept on laughing and laughing and laughing.:

Maybe I'll try the Speed Skater Uniform Shop.

Speed skater uniform might be safer, as they are lined with kevlar.

Hahahahaha

Oh, fancy on the battery operated one. Tell me, does it have a larger reservior than the 8-ounce bottle? I have to fill and reheat a few times every rinse session, which is mildly a pain when my nose is dripping right after a rinsing. Just curious.

BAHAHAhahahha on Allen's email/phone. I'm tempted! I love it.

Missed this first time around. No, it is the same size. The good side is that it is a constant flow, no need to release the bulb and squeeze again

Get the sinuses to drain "almost" completely. Stand of the porcelain hole and bend your head way way down. Don't touch the water though.

Tim, I can sympathize with you. When we go out to eat I ask to see if they have these discounts.

Military discount, and the answer may be "No," but if it is I don't go further.
Senior discount, and the answer may be "no," but if it is I don't go further.

And finally: "Do you have a good looking discount," at which time I get a belly laugh from the server. I have to ask them what the heck they are laughing at! Sheesh!

Yes, some have a craving for life in a screen house, and sand between their toes!
If it's humid enough, some screen house dwellers gain wealth by growing pearls between their toes.

Dave I ask before, where you at?
You could drop in on a mini Monday. No guarantee we still won't talk about you but you could come to your own defense

The birds love it too! And to be honest, the screen house is really just for the birds and when the mosquites come out at dusk. It's too hot in it any other time

I've said this before, I think there's a big difference when staying in FL and one is near water vs inland. There's usually a nice breeze and such near the water which in my own personal opinion, makes the stay quite enjoyable. This is my fourth year here and minus the week or two of the real "winter" we get, the rest of the time is really nice. I've stayed in Key West too, which obviously is near the water, same feeling down there. One isn't supposed to stay in the Everglades when camping here!

Ha! That's actually hilarious!

Twice I've gone out west, being promised how warm it is and twice I've been burned by cold weather, lousy motorcycle riding, too cold to get to the top of the mountains, blah! I guess if you stay there long enough the weather EVENTUALLY improves, but geez, how many weeks do you have to deal with *winter*!!!

Carl, Ha!
It seems almost more fun when you and I poke each other than when we poke Wayne, Tim, etal.
Well almost!

Hi guys!

Well yesterday I felt good enough that I washed all the dishes,
cleaned the kitchen counters, and straightened up my pantry.

Then I slept 11 hours last night. hahahahah!

Bacon. The perfect bribe! You can bribe me with bacon anytime, hunny!

I'm a multi-nicknamed person, too. As a baby, my aunt nicknamed me Cookie, after the baby on the Dagwood & Blondie tv series. My family on my mom's side still calls me that. My great-grandma called me Charlie, but she was the only one; it never stuck. Friends in the art world nicknamed me Cat, from my business name, C A Therien. They still call me that. Some of my friends shorten my name to Char (with a soft S, like Shar), and I sometimes call myself that.

No guarantees I won't occasionally call you Tim in jest though.

Tim, if you've got a smartphone you can get weather reports on your phone with an app. I use Weatherbug, it's free and pretty accurate, all things considering.

Wayne, I just do mine over the kitchen sink. Seems to drain pretty well.

Allen is eligible for a senior discount, and now that he got his VA ducks in a row and got his new license, also the military discount. But then most of the time we forget to ask for the discount!

But whenever a server asks if she/he can get us anything else... he says, "hair" and rubs the top of his monk haircut head. The server usually laughs. He's always doing stuff like that.

Carl, seeing your post about the screen house reminded me that we need to replace our old one that broke. I really liked having it, and you're right about it being too hot for daytime. Always had a fan going in there because the air doesn't circulate well.

Interesting, a fan. Some of the residents here have fans laying around, never thought to put one in the screen house. Might give birdies more outside time.

Speaking of fans - I bought 3 of these USB powered fans because they are VERY quiet, blow a good amount of air and use very little power.
