    He did talk me into playing spaceman in the dryer with the glass dome door, he turned the dryer on. He made me robust and believe me when I was 19 I kicked the dog piss out of him to the point where I still call him little brother, only now I call him little fat brother.

    My wife and I were booked to be in Vegas this week stating tomorrow staying till Sunday. Were meeting the B&SIL and going to Bruno Mars concert. Concert was rescheduled yesterday so couldn’t go to that. Get full refund though. Now at 10:00 PM the night before our flight they canceled our flight. No explanation at all. Now the whole trip is off. Allegiant Air is a real POS outfit. And they want me to take a voucher instead of a refund. Will be some arguing goin on with their customer service in the morning.
    ARRGH!! We are sooo pissed!

    can't bring myself to like this, but yes, I agree that Allegient is a POS airline, but also, LV's POS mayor has gone damn near full lock-down again.

    Not sure what album you listened to but Purgatory is a great album. "Whitehouse Road" is awesome.

    We’ll I only had to be on hold for an hour and a half to talk to a person with Allegiant this morning but did get a full refund with no questions. Would still rather be heading to Vegas this afternoon.

    I just wonder what the folks who were in Vegas will do now that their flight home has been cancelled.

    2 reoccurring PITA' s

    1) How many times do we need to tell the NYS health Dept. They have NO LEGAL rights to ask us what are(OUR) health is! I've gone from it's none of your business to none of your Damn business to none of your F ing business. I'll be mailing you the HIPAA regulations! That's just me hobbies hung up a couple of times.

    2) How many times do I have to tell delivery people it is illegal to hang packages from my UNITED STATES postal box WHEN YOUR NOT A FEDERAL POSTAL WORKER.! Again ,2x's in one week 500.00 and nearly 500.00 in parts just hanging off our mail box on a country road 300 ft from the house all night and half an afternoon. I apologized to the poor sap I laid into at 7 this morning when hubby found his package going to work. This time I explained I have no problem contacting the USPO and raise hell with them over the situation...UPS use to be good...lazy SOB...wish my old guy hadn't retired

    Tell them they cannot ask about OUR health, and you will send them a copy of the HIPAA regulations and they might take you more seriously.

    that White House Road rendition popped up on my Black Keys channel several years ago...I remember I stopped whatever I was doing to run over to my phone (was streaming it BlueTooth to a speaker) and hit the thumbs up.

    I'm trimming all of the branches that are overhanging my out buildings out in the sticks here. It is one of the most humid days yet but the temp is not that high. It sucks.

    What really sucks is that the limbs grow 3x their size once they hit the ground. It will be quite a few trips into the woods with the grapple. Critters dig it though!

    Well if I was typing that out on a phone I suppose a grammatical error would have, could have made an impact. Most here have notice I usually get back to my post to correct errors, be mine or the devices. Good catch though thanks.

    People who don't want to work! Let's see what happens when the guberment stops giving out extra UC money!

    We have been working with a national employment agency to get workers in here. We have many from Mississippi. Any bets how long they stay when the weather gets cold?

    Or even stay employed. We have to wear safety shoes. We see people take them off and work in stocking feet or wear sandles.

    We won't even talk about the people who burn one on their lunch break.
