    Don't rub it in, still striking out on the Fordhooks, the small grocer by me has been trying to source some but no luck so far.

    I'm trying hard to work an exchange. There is a Doggy Pyle driver around who runs Portland, ME. I don't know how far that is from your home in Moosetits but 2 lb lobstahs for fordhooks would be a good trade in my book.

    C'mon...... Rotary dial?....... It's a tan colored push button hangs right by the front door. Even got the extra long cord. ......

    Had a new refrigerator delivered the other day,....... and the two young guys who delivered it were making fun of it,..... until one picked it up and said: " Hey! There's a dial tone!".....

    I think I'll opt for the 1/64th scale retirement set.......

    Couple of years ago, my wife asked me what I would do if I came into a lot of money. I told her I would go down to the big Peterbilt dealership and spec out the top-of-the-line model, with all the fancy bells and whistles, chrome dripping off of everything, leather custom seats........

    Then I would drive it home, park it on the front lawn, get my torches and cut the roof off, ....... fill it with dirt, and make a planter out of it.....

    Only then did she smile.......

    You park that full-size set here, I'll do the same,.......... as long as the EPA has no problem with the various liquids dripping from it..........

    Maybe he can wear Braces instead, some years back wife escorted me down to buy a new suit for a wedding
    guy asks me if I wanted Braces, had no idea what he was talking about, showed me a pair of suspenders
    Never heard them called that.

    Get ready for a shock when you realize all you did when you retired was change your boss. A friend retired last month. A former client of his mentioned a year or so before his retirement that he needed a part time salesman. After digging & planting 6 of the 10 flower beds the new boss wants he took the friend's offer for a job. He was retired for 8 days.

    A woman is a lot like the boss at work...the more you do the more they'll expect and the converse works too, the less you do the less they'll expect...you just need to set the mode right off the bat.

    Do you have a movie company somewhere around there? I'd check with them first.

    As well versed in English as you are, did you really have to use Excrete? von.

    A buddy said all he did the first month he was retired was sit in the rocking chair. The next month he started rocking.
