Greetings Doc, Baylee, Mindy, PayPump, Mick, WRINC, Joelimo, Geezer, Wack, MadDogUSMC, Loree71, Full of Fun, Chasms, blkvette00, Psycho Sid, & Others:

Happy Tuesday! 51 degrees and clear (for a change) this morning.

Doc - sorry for your loss! Congratulations on the great news!

I'm noticing the GasBuddy site is rather slow this morning!

I was able to mow the yard last night after work; yea! It was still a little wet in places, but I was able to get it done. In the side yard, I raised the mower all the way up to get the tall grass, and then lowered it some to mow with a second pass. Was glad to get that chore completed.

Off to work.

Have a great day all!

Well, Blo, technically, I'd say you're absolutely lacking in re the former, but wouldn't you be happy to be among the latter?

LOL LOL LOL, etc.

Joseph, I'm'on git me some more points, and then I'm going to bed. I really don't care what the owners of this joint do anymore. I just hope some of their suckbuddies who've looked down their noses at the commoners all these years are non-smart too. That'd be justice. lol

Oh, well, I do think I'll hit the sack...screw the points...

Geez Wack, you should have come the rest of the way to Sin City. You were half way.

Today would have made the admin happy. I didn't post a gas price, as if they really give a good --- ----. I went and got them, but got into Barnes and Noble and it slipped my mind---oh well. . . . B&N are a great more value to me than reporting gas prices for nothing.

Doc Sir,,,I'm really Sorry about the loss of your nephew,,,my Condolences.
for my last 3,103 consecutive day's (almost 8 1/2 years) in the last two weeks I've watched my overall rank go from 1257 Up to 1405 today,,,
they seem to have shut down the 30 day part on which I used to get down to about 160 at 11:00 at night and just before it Disspissatered I was in the 9,500s,,,
OK,,,Now I Know Why,,,I looked at my points earned Crap just now and found out Why I am
"not on this list at this time",,,
it's cause in the last 31 day's I only racked up 44,600 point's while somebody name of
singh2013 (just a Tick over 2 years a member) has 53,500 point's so He's at 9,999 and since they only list up to 9,999 I get to be not there Anymore,,,Cute Huh?
Actually I'm about to the End myself,,,

True Bullshit,,,Ya Think?

Oh Yea,,,Congrat's On Your FREEDOM!!!

FREE AT LAST! FREE AT LAST!

Harumph....sorry, just a little overboard about the verdict I got from both cardiologists today. Both say I can now do whatever I want to do, since there have been NO heart irregularities whatsoever since the ablation procedure.

Now they both say I can drive anytime/anywhere I want...and one said --- more or less --- "If you're dumb enough to want to jump out of a perfectly good airplane, you're cleared to do that, too!"

Got a sense of humor, huh? Says he prefers the INSIDE of airplanes. lol

Oh, well...somehow it doesn't seem all that important anymore to me, either. Might do it after another 10+ pounds, and then again I might not. Actually, I'd much rather spend the money getting to the 50th Anniversary Party "my kids" in the Class of '65 are having in Alabama on May 16. Only thing that'll keep me away now is money. With Kimbu unemployed, it's doubtful I can come up with planefare, and I just can't bear the thought of driving 2,000 miles alone. Too old for that Shiite anymore.

Sure glad y'all are here.

Good afternoon, all.

Well, I hope that doc has a better day later. I do know a bit about people who don't want to help themselves, so it makes it worse for their friends and family. But that doesn't make it any easier to deal with, does it?

Hugs!

Good morning. Sad day. Our "Unholy Terror" nephew, whom almost everybody in the world loved but couldn't stand, finally managed to escape the Hell he put himself into with his drinking.

RIP, Robert Harrison.

Talk with y'all later. Gotta try to digest this news and get ready to visit both my cardiologist before noon.

God bless us every one.

Good morning doc!

Maybe I'm lucky, not sure, but I never paid much attention to points. Never had more than 750,000, I believe. I did like that black ride though. Matches my truck, color I mean.

Hate to see anyone leave. Even you docputer! ;)

Take care! Gotta move! I'm late! Later

Happy Monday! 66 degrees and wet this morning, but no rain so far! I got in my 1+ mile walk this morning and it was quite pleasant.

I am hoping the rain will stay away for today, although there's a forecasted 40% chance, so I can consider mowing tonight after work.

Off to start the day.

Have a great day all!

Baylee, I bought the motorcycle used and put a 3-year extended warranty on it...first time I've ever taken a warranty like that when offered. I'm sure glad I did. The shop did a total rebuild on the engine, and I'm now breaking it in as with a new crate engine for the first 500 miles. I used the warranty before for $1,200 in repairs, the same amount that I paid for the warranty.

This time, the complete rebuild cost the warranty company $4,150 and my deductible was $50.00. An entire new engine goes for $7,000. Rebuild -v- new = same, except less costly to the warranty co.

PsychoSid- No S&S. Complete new rebuilt 125 h.p. Harley Screaming Eagle Custom, matching the original from the factory.

Good evening Doc,

Yup, lots of angst over the smart phone thing. Have one so I guess I'm covered.

Went to the one Y/O grand sons birthday party today. Daughter had curious creatures come for the entertainment. I think the adults had just as much fun as the kids.

It's been a busy day; I was up late last night filing my Health Care Savings Account expenses so I posted on most areas but didn't get into here.

Good day, all. I am here, but not all that enthusiastic about it. 'Cept just "seeing" all of you, of course. Gaseous Booty is starting to get on my last nerve more and more every day. In a way, I'd like to tell them to stick ALL their points up their bungholes, but, in another, it REALLY bothers me that those of us who've been around the longest are now being given the shaft in favor of the jerkoffs with smart phones and light loafers.

Oh, well....I think I'll just look forward to my 4,000,000 and then call it quits.

How 'bout them rotten apples?

Good morning!

Mick, what happened to your baby? How did you manage to get such a good deal for the repairs?

No boredom here -- Friday night we went to a jazz concert, last night a Russian chorus, and tonight it's Cape Breton fiddle music, the best kind of fiddle music. And in between we're doing some spring cleaning before friends come to visit next weekend.

Ohboy...Blo says she got something like 17,900 points on GaseousBuddy this morning, so I gotta get busy. See, the thing is, I ain't got no smartassed phone AND I ain't got a "tablet."

Actually, I think Moses busted my tablet back there when he dropped the ones that contained the OTHER five Commandments.

Remember that?

Geez - lol

Although for most of the day I was able to telework, I wound up having to go in for a 2:00p in-person meeting. Traffic, of course, was awful due to the rain, but it had to be done!

My wife and I enjoyed a relaxing Friday evening at home, eating our left over pasta from the night before and catching up on some DVR'd television programs.

Nothing too much planned for today except for some chores around the (inside of) house.

The oven's in. The burn went well. Warners' Stellian people seem to have their acts in order! Gotta say, they did a dang good job. Still need to have the whole area trimmed in, but the oven is now a functional oven!

Can't wait to probe something!

Seems like every day now tptb are overdosing on point giveaways! Dbl gas reporting bonus weekend points? Geesh!

Have a great weekend all! Later

Yep, one nice thing about poverty is the paperwork is MUCH simpler!

Happy Friday! This day has finally arrived! I have a light day and projected to have a light weekend.

Got my taxes electronically filed on Monday and payments mailed on Tuesday. Mailed my contributions to the grand-girls' 529 plans on Wednesday.

Geez - as long as you pay your taxes, it's OK to do it... ;)

Since it was still raining off and on, and had already rained some (more) during the day, mowing was out of the question. So my wife and I went to dinner at The Italian Oven in Stockbridge for some wonderful pasta.

I'm teleworking today and getting a later start since I worked some last night.

Off to start the day.

Have a great day all!

Oh, btw, I did my taxes wed night, also. I always wait until the last day before turning over my cash to the gov! Always!! Electronically, too.
