Welcome to the club. Even you young pups can stop on by as long as you mind your manners. There may be snow on the roof but there's a fire that ol' diablo would covet in the furnace so watch out!

Good Morning Geezers

Oh, that's right, today's the day we haveta fill out the parade permit form. Good thing ya reminded me, geezer. I was prepared to nap right after lunch, but I see I wrote the permit party on my calendar, so I guess I'll be there. Didn't we get the form in the mail? I thought it came about 10 or so days ago. I wonder if we can run down to the Gastonia town hall and get another one? This was a town permit, wasn't it? Didn't someone mention that the County was gettin' into this action also, so they could collect bull**** permit fees? Double taxation as I see it! Didn't our forefathers fight a war over somethin' like this?

Maggie, are ya still plannin' to bring some of those treats? I may haveta hold off on my lunch dessert if yer bringin' goodies. Oh, I found a permit form, and it's already filled out! Oops, it has last year's date on it. Did we enter last year's parade without this permit on file? Mebbe that's why the local city govn't is so upset with us.......we didn't file last year or pay the $2.59 filin' fee. Didn't we have a fund raiser to pay that fee.....and somethin' happened to prevent it? My, My, but the mind is gettin' filled up with lotsa fuzzy memories, and they're all runnin' together. Oh, well, I'll see y'all at 1 pm for the document signin' party!

Pass the jug. I gotta get lubricated for writin'!

Well I'm set I have our jugs of hootch set up and waiting for the trip and my dress is pressed and I even took a nap today to store up some extra energy.

The vulture is the pet of a friend of mine. It's name is Circle. Chris, if you're gonna feed him, put on a heavy glove. His sight ain't that good and he's kinda partial to duck web.

PERMIT PARTY ON Thursday! I sure hope I remember it. Costumes? I was plannin' to wear my red Carhart Snowmobile suit with a white scarf. I hope that constitutes costume, 'cause that's what I've got. The vulture is a nice touch, geezer.

Pass the jug. I gotta get ready for Thursday's get-together!

Looks like everything is in order. All we need is that permit, an' that's Thursday, so there's nuthin' to do on the float until the parade. Everybody got their costumes ready, right? I'm gonna be Santa the Pirate. A suit like Santa Claus's, 'cept it's black with a skull an' crossbones on the hat an' I'll have a vulture on my shoulder. Merry Christmas, ya landlubbers! Arrrrrgh!

Hello Boys, first off Chris I 'am well past the 50 mark, But I do believe in taking care of myself.I love to have fun, share what I can and help whom ever when ever I can and still have fun in doing what ever I can. But I do thank you for your kind comments you are a true gentleman! BG just because we are getting older doesn't mean we can't look good and have fun doing what ever we can! At least I can still make people laugh even a little! Of course the Elvira gown is done in good taste but makes you think a little sassy but a little blood pressure rising. We may be older but I do intend in sliding into base hollerin that was a H--- of a ride! Geezer hats off to you on the paint job who says us oldies are not good for sumpthin, it sounds beautiful! Oh I can't wait for the parade it sounds so deviously fun. Look out Gastonia here comes the Geezer Club! Whoo Hooooo!:)

The spreader flights are oiled an' ready to go. In a few minutes I'm goin' out to pain the spreader a more Christmas-like color. Mainly red, with gold trim an' green letterin' sayin' "Ol' Geezers Clubhouse. Git off the Grass!"

Mrs Claus Elvira gown?????? I don't know if my old ticker can take it! However, the good citizens of Gastonia would prolly be appreciative even though they'd feign shock and horror. (They're pretty conservative) Dress up, Maggie!!!

geezer, didja oil up those spreader flights? If they rust they'll bind and jam up and we could end up with all kindsa problems. The mind boggles when I think of all that can transpire.

Pass the jug. I gotta mellow out or I'll think myself into a tizzy!

Oh hello boys are we dressing up for the Christmas parade? I mean do we want to impress the folks in Gastonia? And don't forget it pays to have friends when you need them. Geezer your the man with all the great ideas, so I know you will come up with something. Chris I do so hope that you are okay, maybe some of that home brewed elixir The Miracle Hootch will make you topsy turvey. Well boys I have to take out my Mrs Clause elvira gown out and make sure it still fits! And Thursday a meeting at the club house gathering sounds good oh my I have to star making a few snacks for all you fine fellows!

It really ain't that much blood, geezer. It always looks worse than it is. Just 'cause Chris needed a transfusion, ya might get the idea that horrendous things happened. Not the case.......ducks don't have much blood to start with!

Maggie, I'd bet you were the "Belle of the Ball" down there in N'awleans. I'm terribly sorry I missed it. But just seein' ya slink around in that Elvira dress make my juices get to flowin'!

Thursday, 1 pm for the form fillin' out gatherin'! And, yep, Maggie, those snacks sound great (along with the specialty hooch).

Pass the jug. Time to start off the week right!

Hi guys if you all are having a meeting do we need some shine? I could whip up a batch of shrimp dip and bring crackers so you all can snack a little sound good! BG I wont say that I was bad down in New Orleans but I did win first place in the dress up contest and danced with an all male group of musicians. It was the high lite of the evening, great people down there and gooood food! Geezer are you in trouble with the law I have a cousin down there that could fix you up hon if needed. Look up Ernie fixerupper, he loves to get back at the police since his first case. Chris how did your pop corn string turn out? I bet you did a steller job! Hope that this finds you all well don't worry about the handshaking thing you can hardly tell on the puter!

Ah, throat lubrication. Good idea.

My neighbor has a cataract. His wife has a Honda. Are you gonna get those cataracts removed, BG? My cousin Floyd has a really tiny gear removal tool an' he used it to remove our granny's cataracts. She has 20-20 vision, even if she's cross-eyed now.

Awright, let's gather 'round the still on Thursday to get that permit application put together, then Chris can take it down to town hall. I'd do that, but I'm kinda persona non grata down there, mebbe because of last year's parade.

Yup, geezer, I can fill out the parade request as long as I don't haveta write in cursive. I used to have goooooood writing but my writin' hand is a bit shakey as of late, so I've been printin' mostly. The big problem is my cataracts....I just cain't see very well. I may haveta have one of youse read the form for me and point to the space that needs to be filled in. It'll take all of us to get this done. Do we need to call a form fillin' out meeting? I'll be available next Thursday from 1 to 2 pm, but Mrs BG has me pretty busy gettin' ready for Christmas, and I'm havin' a tough time gettin' my naps in. Okay, I'm through whinin'!

Pass the jug. I gotta lubricate my throat!

I wish I'da been in N'awleans with Maggie. Its quite a sight seeing how the girls get their beads. Whoa, Maggie, you sure have a lot of them! You musta been pretty active! Just remember, Gastonia ain't N'awleans and the gun squad would run ya in for that up here. That bein' said, it looks like we're ready for the parade!

Pass the jug. I gotta ponder popcorn and beads!

Colonoscopy? Is that when the doctor goes down under? I had that once and I told the doctor while he was down there to check and see if my hat was on straight, for a few seconds he was really off his game can't remember anything else I fell asleep! Woke up and I was fuller then after a turkey dinner at thanks giving snicker snicker. Gosh almighty I really need a drink to get that awful taste out of my mouth! Geezer I have a bag of beads from my last trip to New Orleans Mardi Gra parade! Good work on that spreader at least that colonic drink was good for sompthin. Chris great idea on the popcorn, wish I was that bright! But i can bring us a few jugs of our favorites a little ginsing and peppermint hootch should keep us warm and in tune! So very glad that Lem is going to be driving hey BG will the Mrs be there to? The more the merrier, maybe we could sing a few Christmas Carols how about it guys?

Geezer, glad nothing serious has ailed you. Good idea on the joy juice. Nothing like a sani-clean spreader. I hates the taste of that stuff. and usually just give in and stay on the throne to save steps, if ya know what I mean? I'll string some popcorn, in case we run out of beads. If we don't use them, we can eat them. Pass the hooch. I need lubrication!

Yer a genius, geezer. Ida never thunk about that "Go Lightly" but now yer gonna haveta lubricate all those flites so they don't rust before the big parade. A lite oil like WD40 would work. Lem was real happy to see the spreader working properly. Said his PTO can only put out 520 rpm instead of the 540, so the beads will last a bit longer. Mebbe even to the end of the parade!

Pass the jug. I gotta ponder my next colonoscopy in a couple of years!

Now, all over older coots have had the pleasure of the steel eel, known in politer circles as a colonoscopy. Y'know that godawful stuff they make you drink the day before to clear ya out? Well, I poured a whole bunch of it into the manure spreader an' now it's cleaner than Miss Manners house. Man, that poor ol' spreader made some horrible sounds whilst the process was goin' on. Sounded vaguely familiar...

Enyhoo, Lem Barney...that name sounds familiar, too.

Pinkie up? Well, that's because I sprained it tryin' to give that spreader a second dose of that cleanout stuff. Got kicked in the jaw, too, which explains the sippin'. That Miracle Hooch straightened me right out.

Time to go. I'm headed over to the big city, Arnoldville, for more beads.

I'm sure we can work sumpin out with little ole Lem barney maybe even an invite to one of our little ole parties at the club house ya know! Chris I think Geezer is showing a little gentlemanly class or maybe he found hisself a little honey what ever the case I like it! BG don;t worry things will work out my friend, here just in case you and mrs is running low take this lil jug my friend garenttee it will cure what ails you!

I don't know where geezer's mind is, but the "old poop" is still in the manure spreader! Its not so slippery after sitting there fermentin' 8 years. We'll need a jackhammer to loosen it. Speaking of geezers mind... What's with the "sippin'... and your pinky up in the air, buddy? Have you gone banana's, or don't you feel good?

We're gonna need a tractor with a working PTO to run that M Spreader. I talked to Lem Barney yestiddy and he said he'd tow the sprea.....er, float with his antique John Deere as long as he would do the driving. Seems that old machine can be tempermental and he knows how to keep it working when it appears to be breaking down. He did say that he tried Maggie's peppermint hooch and he'd be right pleased to have one of Maggie's jugs with him while driving. Seems like a good trade to me. Can you accommodate him Maggie? I hope ya got a lotta beads, geezer, 'cause that spreader will unload 'em all in just a few minutes. This could all work out!!!!

Pass the jug. I'm gonna ponder a parade where everything works as advertised!

I'm here, Mags. I was just over at the Party Warehouse buyin' up Mardi Gras beads for the float. Since we're all up there in age I thought throwin' strings of beads might be a strain on our aging parts, so here's my idea. We load strings of beads into the spreader an' let the float distribute 'em. Great idea, huh? We can concentrate on wavin' and surrupticheshly sippin' Maggie's fine Peppermint Hooch.

Well the peppermint shine is finished, I took some over to a friend of ours just loved it and has ordered 20 jugs, so I will donate half of this to the club house kitty for new paint for the club house! You all need to freshen this club house up for new members. Maybe the paint will draw out a few newbies with a little cash! Hey how is our float coming and where is geezer! Every body look so we knows where that old poop is, hope he's not hurt ohhhhh seen him last at the dollar store buying s new supply of markers, keep an eye on him he is s slippery little devil!:)

I do not know about those magnets moguls but I might have met them at a party in the past. Chris i think you have something there maybe after the parade we could have a good ole mudding it would be fun for all and that way we could loose up all the manure. Geezer how do you feel about mud racing? We could even sell a little hootch out of the little trailer I have , I could just put it in the water tanks and sell by the glass or jar. Hi Bg I laugh because of all the devious thinking I have been doing! Besides its fun! Yep the peppermint hootch could be coming right out of the faucet, oh what a lovely dream! Who would have thought there could be a whole water tank of shine! You guys keep thinking as for me I have buildt up a thirst and must quench!

Awright, BG!! Now about those magnets. Magster, we'll be usin' Orville Demmie's ol' manure spreader as the base for our float, an' it's made of metal, so there'll be plenty of spots for magnets. Say...Maggie...magnets...are you a descendant of the original magnet makers from over in Sugar Valley? Suh-weet!

No worries on the generator geezer. I just bought a brand new Honda 2000 generator for Riff Raft, and since Riff Raft don't need it right now, we will use it on the float. It's quiet too. It's able to run all the lights we can hook up to it, so let 'er rip!

Good Lord, Maggie, that peppermint hooch is spectacular! I'm curious, though, about why yer doin' all that snickerin'? You know we're all just mellow old fuzz balls, and we've got enough sense not to do anything...........er, I might have spoken too soon. Every now and then, outsiders misinterpret some of our shenanigans and don't realize that we're perfectly harmless. Just because we get plenty of visits from the cops and fire fighters (not to mention the paramedics) doesn't mean we're doin' anything funny.

Pass the jug. I'm gonna start this day off right!

Hold on my friends I have extra lights besides even if I dressed like Elvira I don't think that would stop the police! BG how many lights do we need and if you can't answer maybe geezer can! Cris grab a line and start checking to make sure they all turn on BG if these are all working where can we string these? I simple love decorating hey can we use Santa Magnet's to adhere to the old truck that is if it still has any meta l that is not rusted! Oh my this is exciting How about a few wreaths come on guys look at this box its full of all kinds of christmas stuff! If you want to bring up our treasury for the club house we can still charge a nominal fee for face painting the kids at the parade and earn a buck or two. Well good buddies I need to ponder this for a bit and oh turkey jerky snicker snicker I tell ya this peppermint hootch turned out so gooooooood! Have a good nite boys and don't do anything that I would not do snicker snicker!:)

Hi There, Geezers

Finley Flats????? Isn't that where we "borrowed" all those lights for the last several years? As I recall, Harlow Gustafson, the mayor of Finley Flats threatened mayhem if we showed up there again. Might not be a good idea, geezer! Why din't we just go down to the Worn-a-Bit shop right next to the old folks home in Gastonia? They always have good junk and dirt cheap prices. Mrs BG just filled up my credit card and told me to go out and spend it. This seems like a good place to use it and we won't have ta worry about Harlow gettin' his gun squad after us.

Pass the jug. Here's to Christmas decorations!

Well, whatever we use to pull the float, we still need to decorate it. The float, that is. Since it's a Christmas parade, we'll certainly need strings of lights, an' lots of 'em. The treasury is kinda low, so mebbe we should sneak on over to Finley Flats an' see if we can borrow some lights from their downtown area. Who's comin'?

Didn't we have issues with that ol steam tractor a couple of years ago when we were in a similar situation? Mebbe we oughta consider a more reliable vehicle as a prime mover fer our float. Didn't the Chevy dealer out there in the Gastonia suburbs say something about wanting to get free publicity by participatin' in civic events? Mayhaps we could call on him to fulfill his public statement by donatin' a Tahoe to pull our float. I've got firsthand info that he is bribeable with hooch. At least it's worth a try!

Pass the jug. I gotta ponder this latest scheme!

Well Maggie, thinkin' is kinda slow 'round here an' usually comes at the brink of too late. I think this year's effort needs to minimize movin' parts 'cause we usually have trouble with 'em.

That bein' said, legs is parts, an' all the movin' they'll need for the parade is carryin' our butts onto the float. now, with Izzy's Model T among the missin', I've arranged for us to borrow Rufus Barndollar's tractor to pull the float. Since Rufus is in the hospital with a severe case of Mrs. Barndollar's skillet - she caught poor 'ol Rufus winkin' at widow Blevins - we need someone to steer that 'ol steam powered beast, an' someone else to run along side of it an' feed it fuel from time to time.

Good evening geezers and my fellow friends! No new thoughts on the Gastonia Parade? I would have thought by now we would be set, put the jugs down for a minute and lets ponder this question. I already whipping up a batch of peppermint hootch for us all and if you warm it up and put in a candy cane it tastes soooooo gooood you dont even notice when you start to walk crooked unless you already do! Well my friends I for one have work to do! BG don't worry no one will steal our hooch I put my dog there and she will deter the varmints with her cutness!

Good Morning Geezers

What goes around comes around! Now where have I heard that before? geezer what's all that white stuff on yer face? Have ya been raiding the Readywhip can again? You know that's for foo foo drinks when we get new visitors here in the clubhouse. (foo foo drink = Miracle Hooch jug with whipped cream on it)

Maggie we get a lotta geezers that just pass thru a time or two. We cain't send search parties out for everyone 'cause that would leave our stash of Miracle Hooch unguarded and some young whippersnappers might sneak in in our absence and make off with the nectar of the gods.

Pass the jug. I gotta ponder the next clubhouse shenanigan!

We gotta organize a search party and what I need to thin about this for a bit pass the jug guys! Please and thank you!:)

Good Morning Geezers

<<<<s t r e t c h>>>> My, but that was a good nap! Oh, NO! The mad magic marker artist struck again! Hmmmm, who's not marked up? We all seem to be pretty uniform, 'cept for geezer. Looks like his was applied whilst looking into a mirror. Methinks we found the culprit..........hey, geeze, wake up!! Yer artistry needs a little touchin' up. Wait a minnit, this could be the start of a whole new endeavor! We could be magic marker artists in the upcoming parades, and decorate all the youngsters along the parade route. I'll bet the kids would like that, tho their parents may frown a bit. And we can use the excuse that we're all demented old Geezers!

Pass the jug. I gotta celebrate this brilliant idea!

Well, well, well. Everyone is asleep. Where's that magic marker?

:::scribble, scribble, scribble:::

Oh, that's great! Hmmm...I'd better draw on myself a bit to make it look like someone else did this.

Hello boys, I think that a mardi gras parade at Gastonia Christmas Parade would be joined by the whole town. No need for us to have any side lines or chairs and it would be good for young and seniors! The nice thing for the younger ones would be no baby sitters, and no nurses or doctors trying to give you a shot or pills! Besides none of our kids could say act your age, no rocking chair for me! BG all you have to do is retrace your steps in your mind and you should be able to find the model T. Chris hypnotise BG or give him some of that hootch you been drinking and get out your watch geezer tell BG he is getting sleepy and think about that model T. Pay attention guys awh darn it they all fell asleep, I will have to ( sip slurp) ponder this a predicament more ! Some one pass the jug oh thats right snzzzzzzzzzz!

Ya might be right, geezer. I forgot about that incident with Izzy's Model T. Hmmmm, I wonder where I put it? Well, since Riff Raft is on blocks and shrink wrapped in the boat storage yard, I cain't retrace that cruise to jog my memory. Scratch one Model T from consideration in the parade. Ahhhhh, just contemplatin' what Maggie would look like wearing her Elvira dress and all those beads. I think my heart rate just zoomed up!

Pass the jug. I gotta slow things down a bit!
